THE BAD: Deloria is sad and hurty. :( Poor (yet eternally lovely) Deloria. <3 <3 <3

*Deloria-snuggle!* :hug:

THE GOOD: Editing and mulling over Four Winds stuff is fun.
THE UNEASY BUT INEVITABLE SO NOT REALLY WORRYING ABOUT IT: My exam results come out today. They will decide what kind of degree I get. But I have no idea when...

When do you have surgery, Deloria? :(

BAD: I look/feel like a trainwreck. I'm so gross today I'm surprised I'm allowed to be out in public. They should have stopped me at the door when I walked into class and been like, "Oh HELLLLLL no! Haids, you're not publicly acceptable! March right back to that Hyundai, drive back to the Valley, and pop some meds!"

BAD: Financial woes.  :help:

GOOD: Coffee. It always helps, even when I'm miserable in more ways than one.

I hope the surgery goes well. I can't imagine the pain you are in.

The nerve wracking: Job interview tomorrow
The annoying: Can't decide what to wear

The AMAZING: The middle number on the scale dropped :) It's only about 15 lbs total but I've gained some muscle and have a lot better posture. I'll get to that number I want one day. I will!

The GOOD: I feel like a human being today!!!!! Not a healthy human being, but improvements are improvements!
The BAD: It's a weekend so I can't get anything actually productive done.

The BAD: Dear 13CO, when I reduce the amount of you present in the model--YOUR TOTAL EMISSION SHOULD GO DOWN--NOT UP!! Thank you. Sincerely, Delling ::) PS- I'm a god you know. Just sayin'... for such a freak of nature that isotopologues are, you should pray that I don't choose to make your energy potential less favorable... don't see much 14CO now do ya? That could change... oi, no lip about my just being a dawn god. ::) Uppity isotopologues... that's better.

The GOOD: (So, the oddity was that the wings on this particular line profile increased for the first few divisions of its abundance, but now it's behaved itself.)

The BAD: I may be going further insane... s'alright... I came prepared... I can ramble crazily in 7 languages. :yes: Bring it lunacy.

The GOOD: So, I had this dream where I was in such a hurry to get to the airport that I'd forgotten my checked bag. I was standing there at the gate to board (it was a dream, hush) talking with a Delta Customer Service rep... she was like going over my old flights and saying like how I'd had all these good times like that time I got a row to myself... "on an airplane". I pointed out to her that that was one time to which she responded by repeating "on a plane".

Me: Adding "on a plane" to a noun phrase does not instantly make it better!! Genocide "on a plane"! Lunacy... yea, but "on a plane" tho'. (At this point in my dream, the other people were looking at me like I was crazy. On top of which, I just remembered that I was in Ireland and had gotten there safe and sound with my luggage and thus was dreaming.)

Wow, Delling. Your good and bad are oftentimes quite entertaining to read! :thumbsup:

GOOD: It's payday week :sweating:

GOOD: My group team project in Teamwork and Leadership class is almost finished, hurrah!

BAD: I have a blister on the back of my left foot from my adorable sparkle shoes rubbing the the skin off of them. >:(

BAD: My grandma, my mom's mom, died last night. That's the third death for me this year.  :help:

I'm still pretty numb, but I'm not hysterical. Grandma was 85 years old and had lots of grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and she loved Jesus. She's with Him now, and the rest of us take comfort in knowing that.

Thank you, Tess. :) I appreciate the long-distance hug.  :-*

Like I said, I still feel pretty numb about it, and I know that she was ready to go home with my Grandpa. It's just so disconcerting that this is the third act of God that took someone's life in three months. Should I move to some distant, remote island away from everyone? :-\

good: Watership Down is still a great book!

bad: I don't really want to specify, but, my personal issues aren't going well today. Just recently was told something devistating, and I'm really upset right now. For the sake of privacy I won't say what. Plus, I have writers block, and because of the bad news, I don't feel like writing nor doing any homework.

Yay and also boo!

Also...they can do that? I'm not too familiar with trying to get life insurance w/o employment (I assume this is your case, from the mention of an interview?). But...they can do that? Just turn down a customer willing to pay for said insurance?

I think she meant the interview.

Yea, we actually started this process at least a year ago when I was still in school and couldn't get it through an employer.

But...they can do that? Just turn down a customer willing to pay for said insurance?
Guess so, said they consider me too risky.

Yeah, that yay was the interview.

That sucks. I also thought for students these kinds of things were supposed to be significantly easier, what with being y'know, students.
