Has someone posted a link to my EyeCons somewhere, because I'm suddenly getting a huge wave of interest that could easily keep me busy every night until Christmas. What's going on?
Sorry if you're one of the people that has mailed in the last few days about it. I'm trying to organise the orders now, but with exams and lab work, I need to get my grades sorted before business. But I will get back to everyone asap. Thank you so much for all the interest =)
Get this. All that time I've been moaning and bitching that I get underpaid for the job I do . . . that my employer doesn’t seem to give two cents about my qualifications . . . Turns out I was right to moan. I've recently been chasing up a big pay discrepancy, and today my boss came back with her findings. Looks like I have indeed been on the wrong wage for what I suspect is nearly a year and a half.
I'd like 18 months of back-paid wages if it's true. And that pay increase will be VERY handy for University.
Still can't believe it though. If I weren’t so persistent, despite Personnel shrugging me off, I'd never get fair money. I wish staff and employers were more transparent about wages. All this pointless secrecy causes these problems. Lucky my new boss is on my side =) At last, a proper wage I can be proud of might finally be mine!
Not a good day for Chell 8(
I was driving to the hospital for an appointment (ironic), and just as I was crawling down the hill to pick a parking space, a woman in a Peugeot 206 came speeding along, no intention of slowing down despite the limited space, smacked into me and bashed my driver’s side wing mirror off. She then kept going!
I was beeping and fist shaking like you do, and she eventually stopped at the top of the hill. I parked and ran up to confront her expecting an apology, and she was all denial. Can you believe the audacity of some people? I was as far over as I could go with cars parked on my side. She meanwhile had loads of space and no reason to bash me. I suspect between her and her passenger, she was distracted by something. And your car might be new, but mine is newer! Then she argued she didn’t know her own insurance details. I insisted she give her contact info and eventually managed to get her to swap them with me. I know my insurance company won’t pay for the damage because of my excess, so I’m going to post her a letter and enclose a copy of the bill and see if this woman won’t reconsider coughing up after mulling on it for a few days. What a pain. Costs came out of my University savings and I start in two weeks >.<
On the way home I ended up behind a hearse. All right, Powers That Be, I can take a hint. An inch or two more and I could be dead. But now I’m all paranoid 8(
9 years driving and I’ve never had so much as a bump. [/rant end]
At the Hospital, the specialist wants me to consider isotretinoin (Accutane). Has anyone ever taken this drug, have any views on its use for skin? It sounds a bit extreme and very expensive.
Commissions are closed until further notice. University comes first and until I settle into the timetable, I can’t be sure of what I’m doing. There’s already a waiting list, so I’ll advertise any availability when the opportunities pop up. Hopefully there'll be time to squeeze in some me-art too. =3
I’m sad to say Hamster Kjrn died today aged three. I found her in her tube and she hadn’t touched the fresh dinner scraps I’d put out for her, so I suspect she went late last night or early morning. She was so very old. I have never seen a hamster reach such an age. She was a real geriatric towards the end and I noticed for the last year of her life she seemed to have a strange problem with her back legs, causing her to shuffle in a peculiar hunchback way. But she never seemed phased and must have been happy because she just kept on going and going. Right up until the last day she was running on her wheel. Even if she did keep rolling off, she’d get right back on.
I will miss you Kjrn. I swear the key to your longevity was all the chicken and noodles.
