I am so impressed by your ability to draw and enforce boundaries! I would have just kept him as a friend while secretly seething in resentment. I find drawing boundaries at work really hard, and think you are awesome.

Yeah, he makes me feel squirmy and uncomfortable in general. He kind of sees himself as a ladies' man, whereas that self-styled ladies' man facade makes my bullshiitake alarms go crazy and my skin crawl. My continued indifference/barely suppressed disgust at his suaveness apparently hurts his feelings? Who knew.

It's something I still struggle with, to be honest! But I think it really helps that, besides this and a couple of other really minor exceptions, my workplace is an incredible environment with supportive, radically liberal folks who tend to buck the traditional office politics to begin with. They've really made me feel that I can be supported in whatever I do, because they value me as a person and a worker. It shouldn't be amazing and rare to find a work environment like this, but sadly I think we all know from personal experience that it is!

So many people have been evacuated, sections of the highway has washed away and there's no signs of it slowing yet, both shocked and scared right now since this all happened in less then a day! On a positive note, the city's response has been amazing.

That sounds very scary! Good that the authorities are responding well, keep safe.

So, I'm screwed, I guess. Prof is cool with me finishing the incompletes this summer. But I need access to certain journal articles and books available online through the library. I don't have library access and can't get it. They *might* give me a 30 day login if I didn't owe $3000, but since I owe $3000, I can't get my diploma or anything from the school. If I finish these classes, I can get my student aid reinstated that would wipe the $3000, but I can't finish these classes without the materials. I can't buy the books needed because it is 1-2 chapters from a bunch of $100 books.

No, the public library will not have these. I could pay $100 for a year access to the university library (3 hr rt drive, but whatever) but that would not allow access to journals or online sources. Also, since they don't have an education school, they aren't likely to have all the books.

I could go to the library of Congress except that they don't get things in circulation quickly enough and are only up to 2008 or 2009 as far as cataloging these journals.

fork. I just give up on life. There is just no point in trying to do anything.

Does your public library do ILL's? If so, they should be able to get you copies of the articles through ILL. That's what we would do.

No. My public library has no funding for anything. It is very tiny and they cut hours, closed branches, and put a stop to any and all new purchases back in 2010.

ETA: I guess they didn't close, they just cut hours, but its only one main and two satellite branches anyway.

I feel kind of dumb now. Clearly my first path of action should be to a) start these courses and turn in the introductory stuff and b) ask the PROFESSOR for help. He knows my situation and may have some advice or alternate sources. c) resume rant if that doesn't work.

(these classes really suck--they are so boring and I can't even figure out what they are about! they are elearning courses, but its all about systems science and weird terminology and I don't even know. Here is one of the books: http://www.amazon.com/Systems-Architect ... 067&sr=1-1

That one I can rent for kindle, I guess. I think I only need 3 chapters out of it though. Blech.

Is there a college or university near you that would have some of the books? You won't be able to check them out but you could use them on-site. The professor is a good place to start especially for an elearning class.

I learned that there was a warrant out for my arrest over unpaid harboring a vicious dog violation. The thing is that the city attorney had dragged her butt on this case regarding my dog since the very beginning. I was given a slip of paper that instructed me to pay pay this staring in June. Since May was the month my property taxes were due this was great. Went in today to make a payment and was baffled that it took so long.

It turned out that the clerk was waiting for the police to inform me that I had to pay the entire bill. Granted this pales in comparison to other peoples interations with the police. For me it was a reminder of how unfairly my dog was treated. How I tried to be proactive since the mrning after the incident. And how a lazy, incompetent, and bigoted lawyer that the taxes I pay for her employment could have been avoided had she just answered my phone calls 7months ago.

On top of all of this I am reminded that my dog is no longer with us.

LW, let me know if you need help finding some of these articles. I still have access through my school. If you give me all the info I can probably find them for you.

Thanks! I'll go through this weekend and make a list of all the resources I need for the first two classes so I can see where I'm at. I read through the first three lessons, got frustrated, and threw a constructive hissy fit.

I have so much anxiety about these classes it is unbelievable.

Work was the worst thing about my day yesterday. It was my first evening shift being the solo assistant nurse for eight patients, and the care they got yesterday was definitely not good enough. The ones who are mobile did well enough, but the ones who need help getting out of bed? Didn't get out of bed. There just wasn't time to help them. A couple of patients wanted to get up to go to the bathroom, and I had to tell them "No time, you'll have to go in your diapers." It hurts to have to do that to someone.

Hugs to everyone LW, Efcliz, joshua, amonik, toddx & Erika.

Maggie Muggins, I really hope you're ok and staying safe. Definitely lots of talk about the floods out here. Does seem like city response has been good and people are mostly being taken care of. Saw interviews with families that are making assloads of sandwiches to distribute to shelters and people camped out in their cars, and it made me sniffly.

Mina is passing blood in her urine. She doesn't appear to be in any pain and she's had a dose of antibiotics and Cystaid. I'm sad that the little soot ball is sick.
