I'm also going to harvest some spinach today. At least I'll get some form of nutrients instead of the coffee and fruit roll up diet I have been on for a month.

Good morning. We did not escape the room last night, we were on the final clue and had all the letters we needed to open the lock, but in the wrong order. It was crushing, but super fun.

Seems like my mid year review today is going to go well (already received a draft from my manager), then I have to do a bunch of stuff before heading to Newark airport to pick up my bf finally.

Thinking about getting another dog. I'm not sure if my dog will be super excited or super pissed off.

Total ignorance on how strikes work - are you allowed to pursue employment elsewhere? Or do you have to stick it out with the union/that company during the strike?

Take your dog with you if you go to a shelter. See how they interact

Hahahahaha. I'm not hurting yet. Though I do for see this going a lot longer. It's more just that whole springing cleaning thing. Plus I'm going stir crazy.

Hope you feel better.

I can look for other jobs. It's tough because companies know that when the strike ends you will probably quit. Plus my work schedule has to be real flexible because I have random picket duties I need to fulfill. We do get strike pay from the Union for picketing but it's nowhere near what my weekly pay check brings in.

I'm kicking the idea around, after we get our ducks in a row, of going back to school full time. It would be an accelerated 12 month BSN program. Idk, my actual goal is to win the lottery and never have to work again.

I took the day off so I'm going back to sleep for a bit.

Going to watch the Tigers bullpen blow another game against the Orioles tonight with Matt Bennett.

Not only am I pursuing a promotion within my current company, I'm also submitting my resume with another company that I have an in with. It will be a completely change of professions but closer to home and better benefits. Pay probably won't increase but leaving the city (and the wage tax that comes with it), cheaper price on benefits, and not having to pay for parking is like getting a raise.

Tara never completed her masters in nutrition because she would have to take an internship she would have to pay for after dumping fuck knows how much into the immaculata nutrition program. also she already applied twice and was turned down with almost perfect GPA and volunteer work in the related field. shit was absurd. she's not sure she wants to try it again at this point. this is how they defeat you

do you have a hospital system that you'd pair it up with? my brother works in the cleveland clinic system and is about to hit one year there, so after that they'll pay for him to get his BSN in some kind of accelerated program that they offer and he'll slide right into a job there. the education part wouldn't be full-time so i'm not sure how long it'll take to get there, but the job part of it is built right in.

also he's doing sort of grunt work while leading up to this, like washing fat peoples asses, so that's not great

Today is my last day of work before taking a week off and then starting a new job.

I will probably enjoy chemicals in a recreational fashion tonight.
