Wow, time flies

I would like to use today to catch up on some coursework. I’ve been sick for nearly a week, and today the coughing is enough that I’m not going to Baruch; I would just be a disturbance. I’ve been tired and achy and such, which makes it difficult to motivate oneself to work, even from home.
However, I just got my insurance cards, so I made appointments for a physical and a dental cleaning, netiher of which I’ve had since August 2005. I am excited for maintenance.

I’m hoping my student loan check will be in the mail today. It was supposedly mailed last Tuesday, and I’m concerned that it is not here yet. And hopefully I can finally clear up my document drama at Baruch so I can get paid for the job I’ve been working since January. I think I won’t get paid until April :/ which makes the loan that much more important.

I didn’t get through the Watchmen comic again because I loaned it out to someone who had never read it, but I did see the movie on Friday and thought it was quite good. It was nice to go with a fan of the comic; I need those moments of geekdom to feel more myself.

Speaking of, I’m playing a one-shot D&D game next weekend. Looking forward to gettin’ my dice on. Wugga-wugga.

Gonna go heat some soup and check the mail…

    you haven’t received your student loan for THIS semester yet? Or are you on some different loan cycle or something?

  3. No, this semester. And I don’t start getting paid for one of my positions (that I started Jan 21) until the next pay cycle after April 3. How absurd is that?

    Today (6 days after I was supposed to get my student loan) I received a letter dated Feb 26 (postmarked Mar 6) saying that my loan would be mailed Mar 3 (a week ago). So if the first letter is running a week behind, I suppose the loan probably is too. It’s just stupid that last semester I could just go to the bursar to pick it up but this semester they are risking sending loans through the mail. The bursar is in the same building as classes and depts, so it’s not like it’s inconvenient to get it.

    The bureaucracy is ridiculous.

    Welcome to the dumdum world of bureaucracy.

    I’m glad your loan FINALLY arrived because now you are breathing again. I’m also glad you’re getting “maintenance” done.

    Stay well, my beloved first-born!

    Be well, honey!

    Love, Mom
