So I went to Paris (Texas) yesterday and ended up doing some shopping. I bought some new jeans and a few shirts, a new purse (it's purple and spiffy~) and I ended up getting my 2010 calendar. I went with The Beatles over House this time... mostly because I couldn't find a House one at Hastings. It has some nice pictures of the early Beatles with a few from later on for the last couple of months. I just like that it has the spiff umbrella picture for May.

We're going to Texarkana tomorrow to go shoe shopping since the shoe stores in Paris suck.

I only have class three days this week, but I think I'm gonna try and work on Thursday and Friday just for the extra hours on my paycheck.

I've also go to go to Oklahoma City on the 19 and 20 for the state BPA Fall Conference. I'm kind of excited about going since there's going to a kind of small group and I really like just about everyone that's going. Plus it means more shopping~.

I've been trying to work on my Christmas list, but all I have so far is an iPod dock with an alarm clock and The Beatles Remastered Box Set... and that's about it. There's not really anything else I'm dying to have at the moment. Maybe something will strike my fancy before then.

I also got my paid journal back. Finally. I spent part of the morning hunting up icons and I'm up to about 30 I think.

Well I made it through my first full week of work. It went well. I was a bit worn out by Friday, but part of that is work, being a full time student/worker (I was part time last year), dealing with BPA stuff, and starting medical coding.

I'm still happy that all the teachers on our end of the building like me. =)

I also found out Thursday that I'm Student of the Month for October. =)

In other news... saw Wolverine last night. Oh so many things to make me rage (what the hell was the point in hyping up the cast when they all lasted about 10 minutes?) And don't even get me started on Deadpool... or even Emma Frost for that matter (and I don't even care for Emma.) Naked Hugh Jackman made up for a lot though. A lot.

Spent the other night watching clips from Beatles: Rock Band and holy wow that is one pretty game. The presentation is just gorgeous. I think my favorite that I saw is Hello Goodbye because they put in the silly dancing. Oh the silly dancing...

I just realized I didn't talk about the VMAs and I feel I should at least mention that I had a giant, goofy smile on my through Muse's entire performance. I thought it was awesome and I love that they kept going and played for the people who were at their venue. (Though MTV teasing Starlight was a bitch move.)

I'm also stupidly excited for the Emmys tonight. I blame Neil Patrick Harris. I hope he knocks it out of the park. (I also want to see Hugh Laurie get some love tonight...)

And speaking of Hugh Laurie... House season premiere is tomorrow night. I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with the asylum, but I really only care about what's gonna happen after that. I sense massive amounts of Wilson goodness coming my way soon and that always, always makes me happy.

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.
