I have to sit on a cushion because my tailbone still hurts. I also feel the urge to groan "Oy...." when I sit.

I am old.

Hey y'all!

Wasn't sure where to post this but I'm looking for a hospital job. Like a 3rd shift secretary or something. Is there anything that I can do to make them look at my application? I guess that's a broad question but I know hospitals get a LOT of applications and I want to stand out....idk. I guess I'm looking for tips. Including on where to post this question!

How can I say goodbye P.L.G.

Other than that, I don't know what would stand out.

Do I pay off my credit card now with my savings or continue paying it off monthly? Hmm. I could replenish the savings in about 3.5 months. The way i'm going now, its going to take 7 months to pay off the card. It makes sense to pay it off right now doesn't it?

Also I'm going to talk to works HR person (there is one person, not a dept) and discuss this weeks work sh-t. I'm considering signing myself off sick for a week.

In other news... We picked up my car from the body shop last night! Finally! It had been there for a month as of the 27th.

My car looks brand new!

Now here's to hoping that the stupid insurance companies will come to a decision about who is at fault... Preferably in my favor.

Ugh. I'm not happy. I was dumb and didn't stand firm. Now I'm starting the standing firm position all over again. I lost so much ground! I was so much more resolute! Now I'm just depressed again. Why did I believe the constant questions and requests?!?! Its over. It will stay over because we don't understand each other. It doesn't matter how much we love each other. It isn't right.

FFS Curlyminx! Just let it go! It. Is. For. The. Best!

it's 77 here, and awful.


I hate this weather and I hate that everyone celebrates it like it's okay for it to be freezing with the roads iced over and less than 12 hours later, hot as a vulva in a leather pants with leggings underneath.

THIS SHH AIN'T RIGHT. Why does this happen??? Someone tell me.

Because I hate it. I never know what to wear. It's a joke. And someone will be punished for this weather.


like I put away all my summer/spring clothes, I don't have time/room to just have all clothes out all the time because this stupid weather is f***ed up


It's freaking winter y'all and...

CL, pay it off now. Consider the added interest you'll be paying if you go month by month.

Not really. I have lab experience tho. I did work in a physiology core for 2years. Had to analyze data like ppf, concatenating. Easy stuff.

ETA. I also set up and closed the lab down, sacrificed lab rats (we did brain experiments)....everything the main lab chick was doing, but she had a degree

well to be a secretary I think you have to know their computer systems, and be trained in them.

Any other job you probably need some type of certificate/degree, the best thing to do is to look on the hospitals job website and see what's open that you can do first.


I tried to find a job at a hospital for my school so I can go into the medical field eventually, with experience but everything requires a degree or certificate first, and I can't do that since I'm in school, all I can do is volunteer.

Whenever my nephews get sick--which is almost weekly--my mom gets mad at ME for not taking my kid over there to visit.

Mind you, I am a lowly temp who's raising my kid alone and cannot afford to take even 1 day off. My sister is married but refuses to work--and my mom keeps the kids more than SHE even does.

There are few things more irritating than dealing with a grandmother who is borderline obsessed with her favorite grandchild.

And I have never seen two children so prone to catching EVERY.SINGLE.BUG that exists. I swear the older one spends more time under the weather than over it. Of course this COULD be due to his diet of nothing but chicken nuggets.....

It feels so good to get this off my chest..woooooosah.
