THE BAD: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain.

Actually I haven't been to the doctor to say that yet, but I will before too long.
Once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes...

The BAD: There was a substantial amount of snow on the ground this morning. >:(
The BAD: Staff meeting this morning - it was interesting, but it was 2 hours that I could have been doing something productive (and going home 2 hours earlier). :-\
The GOOD: Staff meeting day is also free lunch day. Pasta Primavera today. :D

Edit: fixed typo.

...you mean snow, right? ;) Assuming you do, we had the SAME FREAKING PROBLEM in the Seattle suburbs!  It's April 18th, Mother Nature!  Hasn't the groundhog punished us enough?! >:(

THE GOOD: It was a FABULOUS day today and I'm very proud of my babies turning into kids.

The ANNOYING: got a phone call at 3 am that ruined my sleep
The GOOD: got a good grade on my midterm (this is rare lol)
The BAD: I did my assignment on the wrong reading
The UGH: I had to redo it by midnight
The AWESOME: while working on said redo in a computer lab on campus, a lady in the office of that building told us they had cake and that we were welcome to eat some :P

 :hug: Hang in there. I know how it feels. I'm thinking good thoughts for you.

The annoying: Forgot my flash drive my room and I'm at the library
The bad: Second internship rejection, feeling discouraged
The good: I love one of my projects this semester. It doesn't even feel like work to me!

Thank you Doon! Unfortunately, It's only gotten worse.

The bad: Have been turned down for every internship I've applied for. It's the only thing stopping me from graduating from college after classes are over. I've been trying to keep myself from crying all day. Graduation seems so much farther away now.

You need to do an internship to finish college? What kind of internship are you trying to get?

My major is print journalism, so a newspaper, magazine or something like that. It's required for all journalism students I think. We're supposed to have 300 hours which is a whole summer or semester's worth of work. Also we have a grad portfolio to submit which includes internship stuff, so I can't submit that until I get my internship. I wanted to graduate in December but now i'm not so sure. Maybe if I find something for the fall.

Rejection sucks. Believe me, I know. Sometimes you just have to keep applying (over and over and over again...) before you find something. Try not to take it personally thought I know it's hard not to. They probably get lots of applications from very qualified candidates - they can't take all of them. Hang in there. :hug:

I started displaying symptoms (fever, aching etc) a few hours after you left, so you might get it too. :( If that is the case, I'm so, so sorry. :( <3

I replayed Simon the Sorcerer this morning. :) That was fun. :)

I don't seem to have any symptoms so I must have escaped the maladious menace. No need to worry :)

And Simon the Sorceror is a marvellous game :P Plus, Simon was voiced by Chris Barrie, who played Rimmer in Red Dwarf :D

The bad: I lost my flash drive which means I have to redo my favorite project. FAIL. It's due next Monday at 3.
The good: I handled the crisis well. A lot better than I would have a year or two ago.
