ceitfianna: (Newsies Seize the Day)
This day has started off amazing. I got to work which as always was quiet and so I spent most of it watching my Twitter feed and how it exploded around 11:20 when Egypt became free. I'm so amazed at how quickly things happened there and reading the tweets of people there and around the world saying, we're with you and then celebrating. It gives me a huge amount of hope for well everything. It also makes the fact that I'm going to a meeting to make sure I can graduate a little less worrisome since that's one small thing compared to the great change that just occurred.

I was hoping to be online before that meeting at 3:30 but for some reason, the lab computer I'm using it set for a huge resolution and whenever I try to fix it, it gets messed up. Instead I think I'm going to enjoy reading Bloodroot, a fantastic book, thank you [livejournal.com profile] sardonicynic and relax.

I might search out another computer but other than this meeting the rest of the day and evening are mine and I'm just happy to be warm and in a good place.
ceitfianna: (oh shit will rabbit)
It turns out that those things I thought would be fine actually aren't and now I have to scramble to find three credits from another department. I'm trying not to cry, because damn it, I thought I had this. Also for some reason my internship credits aren't showing up and so the online degree audit says I need more Pep or real life experience credits. What happened was that I have to take a course from another department and I thought my copyright course did that but it was based out of SI so it doesn't count.

The woman I talked to was trying to be helpful but honestly she really sucked at it. She kept going, oh you're just checking this now and then saying don't worry, as long as you move now, something can be figured out. These two things don't match up and so left me wanting to cry. If you're going to be supportive, please don't guilt me because you know I have no time. Most SI students don't have a lot of time and while we try and make sure we meet all our requirements, we mess up. I don't think I'm the only one to have this happen but she made me feel quietly awful about it.

My phone's battery is dead so I can't call anyone and so here I am trying to write and figure something out. I feel like such an idiot because I didn't doublecheck that, but the way it was listed, I thought that course would work.

I'm going to try and pull myself together, I have some nice chocolate donuts that are squished and Happy Hour tonight in Milliways might be emotional but will work. I can do this. Though it does make me feel better about not starting my job search yet, I didn't want to jinx it until I knew for sure graduation was going to work out.

ETA: I just did a tarot reading and realized how much I've missed my cards. They gave me some hope. There is a way past this. I just need to not be my own worst enemy. I think I'm going to let those cards sit there so I can think on them.
