I've done this before, but I'm really bored. )

So for those who haven't heard (which would be most people)... I HAVE A JOB.

FUCK YEAH.

Technically it's work/study so I didn't exactly interview or anything and it's for the school and their desperate for people to help out the teachers so it's not like they had high standards... but still. I have a job.

My official title (according to my id card) is "secretary" but what I'm really doing is teacher help. I'm grading papers, filing papers, making copies, etc. I work part time in the mornings and I get 7.50 an hour. Monday, Wednesday, Friday I work for my teacher and on Tuesday and Thursday I work for the nursing class across the hall.

I was sort of nervous about working for the nursing class because I didn't really know the teachers. But yesterday after I finished making some copies my teacher was in the hall walking back to class and Mrs. Pierce (one of the nursing teachers) told my teacher that I was awesome. I even got loaned out to the health careers class to grade papers. (This morning the health careers teacher was in our class and told my teacher I was good. My teacher was just all "I know.")

I also finished up my training in medical office procedures and now I've started learning medical coding. The books are quite frustrating and I'm just not totally grasping the terminology, but I can handle the looking up the codes and I already know the basic breakdown of the CPT coding system. There are six of us working on coding and our teacher is trying to arrange a field trip to the Choctaw clinic here so we can see how actual coders do their work. After I finish this up I to medical transcription (which is only frustrating when dealing with the terminology.)

I also hit 113 wpm the other day. My usual speed is around the high 80s/low 90s still, but I'm getting there.

edit: Also can I just say that I feel like my confidence level has gone up at least 200 points in the last month. I actually feel good about things. It's all very odd.

So I signed up to do work-study at school. Basically it means I drop back to half-time in class and spend the other three hours working at the school. I'll mainly be doing teacher help, but there are times when I might be put in the office to help out. I won't start till sometime after the board meeting on the 8th though.

Class is going good. I've finished two chapters and did a two day medical office simulation and I'm currently in the middle of my first bit of transcription. Both morning and afternoon classes have filled up, but so far everyone seems really eager to do stuff. I've already had one new girl say she's interested in competing at state.

We also had elections for our BPA chapter. Since our class is technically two classes (morning and afternoon) we do two sets of officers. I was elected President for the afternoon class (since I'll be working in the mornings.) I'm really excited about it. I've never held an office in anything before so it's slightly nerve-wracking. Thankfully our teacher is awesome and I'm also good friends with the morning president (in fact we sit right next to each other.)

I gave blood on Thursday. This was the first time I've done it since high school. I got a t-shirt and tickets to the OKC zoo which I gave to a lady in class who has little ones at home.

In other news... Saw the season finale of Being Human last night. I really like how the series turned out overall. I think it's my new favorite vampire/fantasy TV series. George is easily my new favorite werewolf.

Still counting down the days till The Resistance comes out and I'm still on Muse overload. I do enjoy the Matt wallpaper on my computer at school though. It's very spiffy. Speaking of spiffy things... even if you don't like Muse you have to admit the shuffle dance is quite spiffy. Just look at that timing.

Oh and I finally broke 100 wpm typing speed~.

So school started on Wednesday. I'm a full time student this year (I was only part time last year.) We finally hammered out exactly what I need to do this year and when it needs to be done so that there are no snafus with financial aid.

Basically I'm finishing out what I'm currently training for (Medical Office Assistant) and I have to be finished with the last two sections before the beginning of December. Then I'll just straight into Administrative Medical Office and pick up medical transcription and coding to finish out the year.

A lot of last year's people came back this year so I already know most of the people in class. We're planning on putting our Administrative Support Team back together and trying state competition again (we all really want to go to Nationals in Anaheim), but one person didn't come back so we'll have to find someone to fill in or try it as a three person team.

In other news... I didn't manage to get caught up on True Blood, but I'll get there eventually. It's not like I get HBO anyway so I can't catch up and then watch it on TV.

I saw 17 Again last night. I was expecting to not really care for it (it's all been done before in various ways), but I was really surprised by how much I actually enjoyed it. Thomas Lennon was just amazing (and fuck you Comedy Central for canceling Reno 911!). I was also surprised by how much I actually liked Zac Efron. He was actually pretty good and quite charming. (And I will admit it... quite attractive.)

Yeah so this is my giant megapost about my trip to Tulsa and the BPA State Leadership Conference… be prepared for longness.

I told you to be prepared... )

Also leaving my cat for two and a half days has turned him into a needy love thing that’s driving us all crazy. Can’t wait to see what’s gonna happen when I’m gone for nearly a week.

Also also... I finally did catch this week's House. Wilson ♥

I think I'll change the top banner on the journal tomorrow. I'm in the mood for something red...

I am confident in my ability to successfully succeed.

I told you it was gonna sound dumb.

A friend of mine in high school gave me this mini treasure chest for Christmas one year and had that quote taped to the inside lid. Since then it's been my phrase I use to pump myself up for something. I doesn't always work, but it always makes me smile.

Also - time for a banner swap. We've got Chibi Bats from those cracktastic Superman/Batman issues.

edit: I am a fucking moron. *headdesk*

wahoo

I placed in the top 20 in the pre-testing round for my other state competition event! That means I get to compete in it.

Whoo!

New layout time! This is features a super easy to change header area and to get the colors to the match the headers... all I'd really need to do is change the title/link colors. Whoo for ease! We're going for Booster and Skeets in the header for now. I went through like a year of solicits for DC/Marvel and came out with quite a few options for later on.

I had the weirdest dream I've had in quite awhile last night. Behind the cut since it's long. )

Also I have a freaking cut on the inside of my mouth and it's sort of up at the top so it keeps rubbing up against my teeth. =(

So we did our first team run for state contest on Friday. It was frantic and we got no points, but I think it went well. We know that we can get in there and get stuff done and done right without too many problems in the amount of time we have to get done. Our biggest problem was the small details (i.e. arranging thing in the right order.) But now we know what we need to work on this month.

I feel double glad that things went okay on my end (I was the only one to get points for my job!) because I volunteered to handle Microsoft Access stuff which meant learning how to use Access in less than four days. Now I just have to hope they ask me to do something fairly uncomplicated.

[livejournal.com profile] kohikki has me watching Hetalia. Why do I love it so? Why is that the only anime I've touched in months? I really need to get back into the swing of watching stuff. Especially with that new Fullmetal Alchemist series coming down the road.

Also I love this song.

  • Iron Man (and Robert Downey Jr.'s comeback in general)
  • Finally reading Good Omens

  • Reborn! getting awesome again...
  • Making it through a really shitty year

So I'm gonna be moving soon. We're buying a house and we're supposed to be closing on Wednesday. This means I (finally) get my compy back! Whoo! It also means I'll be getting a new computer soon. Man it will be awesome to be able to run more than two things at a time. I'll also finally have time to actually play the gob of video games I've gotten this year. Poor FFXII... I haven't touched you in forever.

My sexy Gundams... I am missing them. D=

I finally dropped the big hint that I want all four seasons of House for Christmas (you know by pointing at them in the store and saying "I want that for Christmas." It was super subtle.) I also plan on getting myself Persona 4 for Christmas. Now I just need to figure out what to get everyone else...

I passed my first cerification at school on Wednesday (we didn't have school on Thursday or Friday.) Whoo! I also enrolled to get college credit through OSU Okmulgee. Double whoo!

I need a haircut. My bangs are seriously getting on my nerves. They're at the annoying length that's too short to stay in a pony tail, but too long to be anything by annoying. It's driving me crazy.

I'm also tempted to by a rename token and some extra userpics (even though I can't seem to fill up the 49 slots I already have.)

Oh I saw Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull the other night. It wasn't bad. Still can't be Last Crusade, but really nothing can. Some of it was pretty WTF, but I enjoyed the little moments.

And finally... OMG TERRA IS FINALLY CONFIRMED FOR DISSIDIA! WHOO! NOW IF ONLY SQUARE WOULD HURRY UP AND REMAKE FFVI FOR SOMETHING.

I started school today! Whoo! But I spent most of the time filling out paperwork and not doing anything! Smaller Whoo! I was worried about being behind in the class since I'm starting late, but it seems to be a go at your own speed type thing so that's all good.


I forgot how quick classes go back when you take them in the afternoon. I'm basically taking the second half of the school day I took in high school (about 2 hours and 15 minutes) and it just flies by... even when you're not doing anything.


I'm going to (finally) get a cell phone sometime in the next couple of weeks. I'm gonna take the phone my aunt just got a couple of weeks ago (since I totally said I liked it before she did and since the screen is too small for her :D).


I went to see Eagle Eye on Saturday. It wasn't bad. A bit over the top, but it had some pretty cool action scenes. Plus (for some reason that I still don't understand) I kinda like Shia the Beef.


My aunt and uncle got back last night from Indiana. His sister is doing good. They had to do another surgery this morning, but the doctors are still optimistic about everything and say in the seven to ten days she should be able to go home. A foundation that works out of the hospital is gonna cover her medical bills, which is good since she had two brain surgeries now.


Oh! New season of Amazing Race premiered last night. I'm not too keen on any of the teams so far... I'm not really not keen on anyone either. But give it time, even if I don't find someone to cheer to the win I'll find someone to cheer to go away.


And now for food... yay food!
