I have definitely both emailed and called people at work, but I usually do it the other way; I like to call to be able to have a conversation about some things, but if I get a voicemail I'll leave a message and then send an email saying "I just left you a voicemail about this but I'm sending you an email as well in case that's an easier way for you to reach me," along with the content of my message, which I hope comes across as flexible more than pushy. Sometimes people can't or won't listen to a voicemail right away but will se an email quicker! I also figure then they have all the info written down which is good too. THis is more for business than personal calls though, which most of the time can wait, so if i don't get a response right away from a friend or family member, no big deal. I might try again in a few days.

I don't really mind it at work. I know at work sometimes a person needs you to answer a 30 second question before they can finish their task. Totally different than a "I just forwarded you a funny article. Have you read it yet?" phone call.

i was thinking about something last week & it kind of stuck with me.

entering fifth grade over the summer we went to go see the classroom list posted. when discovering my teacher i was puzzled that i got a teacher that taught gifted classes in the past. i remember going up to my principal and saying 'why am i in the smart class, i am not smart'...10 years old and i already felt bad for who i was. it makes me sad to this day and it is something i struggle with. feeling that i am a good enough person, a person of worth.

Got some blood results today. My HB is 14.4. Bloody thrilled. One of the doctors at work done them for me. When he looked at the results he said he was seriously impressed and that I must eat fairly darn well.

And I won €3 in the lottery. I have no idea what I will use my winnings for.

Can someone explain to me why the FWP thread was renamed PSPUIGHJVSJHVDSHJG or whatever it is now? I missed it when it happened and I'd like to know. If no one answers in 30 seconds I'm going to dial follow up phone calls to every single one of you.

ETA, and I love when my colleague leaves me post-it notes with client names and FU, FU, FU (follow-up). In my head I do so love responding fork u too!

My phone has stopped sending and receiving texts and phone calls. I'm almost at the end of my contract so I don't want to go through insurance and spend $120 when I'm almost positive impact not renewing. I really hope that it's fixable and they can do it at Sprint.

It stands for Pesky Small Problems...somethingsomethingsomething. So that it still acknowledges that they're the kinds of things that are only problems when you don't have to spend time worrying about your basic needs being met, but doesn't use the FWP phrase, which some people were finding objectionable. I am impressed that you have phone numbers for every single one of us. Impressed and scared.

If you love me so much you would have held off so we'd have a phone chat about it!

Kidding, thank you <3

I went to my departmental advisor again today, and was told that even though I can't *technically* walk if I'm graduating this fall, they could move my expected graduation date up to August, and then I could walk. I have to register for graduation a few days before registering for Fall classes, so once I've registered for graduation, they can push back my grad date to Fall so I can have senior priority. So basically I can stay and get both minors, not have to have a ridiculously busy schedule the next 6 months, and I'll be able to attend a grad ceremony so my grandpa can be here. This pretty much solves all my problems, and you'd think it would be helping my anxiety lesson, but I swear it's made it more. I know it would make me grandpa really happy to hear he'll be able to go, but I don't want to tell him and then have it not work out.

I said I loved you enough to search. I don't love very many people enough to talk to them on the phone :P

My uncle emailed me about 19 minutes ago, and if he doesn't receive a reply in the next 5 he will be calling me. So that's annoying.

Someone did that to me today - emailed me and then immediately called me to discuss the email. It barely had a chance to get to my inbox. And she called to tell me to action one point immediately, which she could've said in the email.

Speaking of phones, the other thing that annoys me (specifically at my job - I've never experienced it anywhere else) is when people pick up someone else's extension. I let the phone ring 4 times when I call someone. If they don't pick up, I hang up. If you pick up someone else's phone, I think they're there, and then I get flustered when it isn't them. I don't want to talk to you, and the person not picking up the phone tells me that they aren't there. It would be one thing if they picked up and said so-and-so is in the kitchen, do you want me to grab them? But usually they just say so-and-so's phone, and then wait for me to splutter out a response, and it turns out they're in a meeting or something. You're wasting everyone's time by answering a call you know isn't for you!

What? Whoa, that is weird! If the person I'm phoning isn't around I much rather have their voicemail!

I just submitted an article to an editor and he replied with all this positive stuff, but then at the end he says it's very week-written. It would make sense in context that he meant to type well-written, but he's an editor and doesn't usually make weird mistakes like that. Plus I did only have a week to write it so maybe he's coined some new term that means it's good for something that only took a week? I'm being all hurty about this right now because I think that although it is not my best work, it's a fine contribution to this particular publication.

Screw it! If he can't be particular enough to praise/criticize you clearly, his opinion isn't very useful.

I bet he meant to type "well" but typo'ed "weel" and it auto-corrected to "week" (of course, an editor should have caught that!)

Is the PPK snarkier then usual at the moment? Recently I've seen a couple of people indicate that we are.

I'm crouching on the floor, because my laptop is on a chair playing music and I was just going to look at it briefly, and now I have super bad pins-and-needles and know when I stand up I'll probably fall over.

Gah, I know this type of scenario, it's usually putting my back out sitting awkwardly.

I save most of my snark for my lookbook. It's just me taking judgmental scorn-faced selfies while simultaneously trying to model through it. I have a hard life. Occasionally I manage a smize.
