Plan of Study

Today I meet with my advisor at noon to formally work out my plan of study and get it on file with the graduate college. I’ll also get enrolled for next semester. I’ve got a few classes that will work, I’m trying my hardest not to change my work schedule too much. I’d like to keep it the same until summer school. So, that’s at noon.

I need to hit the grocery for one or two things. The cats are in their pre-winter feeding frenzy. I know everyone in this house is an emotional eater, but dang. Also, we’re having a major temperature drop this afternoon. from the 70s this morning, to the 30s tonight. I need some soup fixins. I think homemade chicken and noodle. Yes. Thats what I’m going to do.

Last night, I felt like crap. I also looked up what my blood pressure meant, as I have never known bla bla over bla bla equals good bad or indifferent. Well folks, Lemme tell ya. My top number was good. It wasn’t perfect. It was in the “prehypertension” section on the graph. My bottom number, however, was in Stage One Hypertension.

The doc didn’t address it. It could be several things, the stress from the class I had just finished, the stress of everyday life, the fact that I’ve been walking around with infection in my body for a few weeks and just generally have felt bad…I go see my lady doctor next week, with my list of things to talk about, so we’ll see what comes of that.

So, all this time, I’ve been waiting on November 1st to upgrade my cell phone. Mine is a refurbished model and I can tell it’s just not as sharp and functional as it should be. I was giddy with anticipation for the iPhone, since Sprint now offers it. I thought, that with my 150.00 discount, my phone would only cost 50 bucks. Not so fast there, bub. From the website, I deduce that I will have to pay 200.00. AFTER my discount. And I don’t know what it will do to my monthly bill…I’ll go into a store and talk to someone but looks like I’ll just sit tight awhile. Disappointed though.

That’s all I’ve got folks. I’ma get up, get around, run my errands and then head to campus to plan my future. I’ll let you know what we come up with!


Oh, also, one full day on the mongo antibiotics and I woke up with less ear achey and my eye pain is down considerably! Such a relief!


So I got showered and dressed and got into the car and drove the 20 or so minutes to campus and parked and walked in 15 mintues early only to be told, “oh Dr. Carrell is really sick she just called in. (it’s noon) And there –well–there really just wasn’t any way to get ahold of you. She’s really sick”


Beyond disgusted with this woman and her spectacular failings at advisement.

One thought on “Plan of Study

  1. Watch your BP but I wouldn’t be worried about it until you’d tested it a couple of times without being full of raging infection. So glad you’re feeling better already!
