Drowsy Monday

Just two weeks away from freedom!  In some ways, it's two weeks too long.  In other ways, it's not nearly long enough.  I have a 25 page paper due for my advanced stats class on Friday, and have no clue what I'm doing.  I sent my prof a rough draft for feedback, and he suggested lots of revisions.  I worked from dusk to dawn yesterday, it felt like, and I still have a lot of work to do on it.  However, the prof's suggestions weren't nearly as bad as I was expecting.

I had an internship interview last Friday, and it did not go well.  At all.  I was not as prepared as I should have been, and it was a very intense interview.  I felt like I said all the wrong things, and my mind went blank at one point, so my confidence was really shaken by that.  But ya know, it was a learning experience, and I'll do better next time.  It was a good reminder of the kinds of questions I can expect when I graduate next semester and am looking for a real job.
Took this from here.

1.  Who is the one person with whom you are acquainted that you feel is building up the worst karma?  Why?
Without question, I would say my old boss.  She told me on my very first day of work there that she didn't care about other people or their problems.  She showed this to be true many, many, many times over.  She could be extremely unpleasant to deal with at times.  I feel like she already got her karma though, because she got fired about a year after I did.  I've wondered if she has changed any since then.  If I remember correctly, I think the person who fired her said that she was mean.  That's not why she was fired, of course, but they did bring it up during the discussion.

2.  What would you like to discover?  Would you sell it, or let it be available for free?

I would like to discover a way for my chi's to live a long, healthy life for as long as I'm alive.  I would share the magical secret for free.  What would you like to discover?

3.  Think back on the choices you've made in your life.  Which one would you never want to have to make again?

A bazillion years ago, I dated a guy.  We got engaged way too quickly, and I said yes.  Things immediately turned sour, and I discovered him for who he truly was.  We broke up and got back together every other week, it seemed like.  He got into legal trouble, and the cops came to question me.  It was not a fun experience.  I tried to protect him and lied, but the cops saw through that and questioned me even more.  My ex spent some time in jail before being kicked out of the military.  I should never have been put in that position, and I regret lying to the cops - especially after it was all done and over, one of the cops told me that the ex tried to blame it all on me.  Unfortunately for him, there were surveillance videos to prove he wasn't telling the truth.  

I never want to have to make the choice of whether or not to try and protect someone in legal trouble.  I think if the situation were to ever arise again, I'd like to think I would tell the truth from the beginning.

Sorry about the interview but as you wisely say chalk it down to experience. Number 1 has to be a neighbour who never has a nice thing to say about anyone, 2 the cure to all cancer and free and lastly 3 having to decide to let Pip go and funnily it is the anniversary today as a year ago we lost her. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly

I hope your paper goes well and the interview wasn't as bad as you thought. I once had an interview for a job and my mind went blank and the whole interview panel were looking at me like I was a lunatic, LOL. Oh yes, I would second that, if only they could live as long as us, there is nothing I wouldn't give! My God, that must have been horrific for you with your ex, what a pig, blaming it on you.

Hi Y'all!

Stress. My Human says college is where you learn to cope. Life is a series of little and big stresses. My Human says your right...learn and move on...just don't repeat the same mistake. Mistakes are how we learn. But you knew all that.

Oh, word of warning...don't ever talk to the police, buy a house or make a will without your attorney present. Yep, that's from my Human too.

Y'all come back now,

Your old boss sounds like a very miserable human being. I feel bad for people like that.
