So, yesterday was my job interview...no that wasn't the good thing. It went well, but it wasn't fun. The fun part was after that. I went to talk to Libby, a lesbian friend that had some research questions for me. We met at a little coffee shop. It was fun. We talked for a long time, and now we're better friends.

The best part was that she was talking about a friend of hers, also named Jessica. I remember this girl from one of my presentations on campus. I remember thinking she was really cute, but just assuming she was straight. Well, Libby tells me she's not, and she's also single and looking. I told her to send Jess my way. She would try.

Someone asked me last night online if it would be weird dating someone with my same name. I don't think it will be, but it might get confusing. I know it was when my friends Chris and Chris were dating. But again...I don't care. On top of that, I'm getting way too far ahead of myself. I need to see this girl again first and get past saying hi. I know the next time I see her I'll get butterflies. That's ok though. Those are fun.

Today, another good thing happened. While I was getting ready this morning, I checked my accounts online to see if everything was ok. I noticed there was a lot more money in my account than there should have been. I found a deposit of $1,000 in there that I had no idea where it had come from. After picking my jaw up from off the floor, I reasoned that I would have to find out where this is from, because if it was a bank error, it'd get taken away. Well, I first e-mailed my parents, and they responded rather quickly. Apparently that was their tax break for each child in school or something. So they gave it to me and my sisters.

Apparently my dad was going to call or e-mail me about this before, but forgot to. That's no surprise since he never remembers to do that sort of thing. He's getting old. I'm excited though. My rent is pretty much covered until the end of the semester now. And I think I'm going to look into getting laser on my lower back. Or maybe I'll finally buy a Gamecube. I've wanted to get one of those for quite a while. We'll see. Well, back to work.

Luv,

Jess

So, yeah, my professor almost didn't take my assignment today. I was really sick on Friday. I left work early and didn't go to class. I e-mailed her and told her I was sick. That's what you're supposed to do. Apparently though, today when I turned in my assignment that was due Friday, I was informed I was supposed to have a doctors note for being sick. She almost didn't take the paper.

I'm sorry, but I find that to be a little ridiculous. I'm not going to go to the doctor to get a note if I just have a nasty cold. I knew I needed to sleep and get a lot of vitimin C for a few days. I'm not three years old needing a doctor to tell my my nose is running. I can take care of myself.

I talked to some friends about it, and I guess they don't even try to make up stuff anymore if they're sick. Apparently there are a lot of professors that require doctors notes now. What a waste. I understand the need to confirm us actually being sick, but she could have also accepted a note from my workplace, which sent me home early. They knew I was sick. Ugh...I'm just frustrated. I guess whining about it doesn't change anything though. I'll be quiet now.

Luv,

Jess

It would seem that after sleeping almost 24 hours combining Friday and Saturday, eating lots of Chicken soup, and drinking lots of Orange Juice, I've managed to beat the cold by Sunday. Both Friday and Saturday were the worst. It hit the hardest around Friday at noon, until about Saturday at maybe 6:00 pm. After that it started to get better. I was able to sleep last night without NyQuil. It was a very restful sleep too.

So, with that in mind, now I should be able to get stuff done today. First and foremost, I need to clean up the mess I made while being sick. This apartment is a pit. After that I can get started on the paper that was due Friday. Wow, though...you don't appreciate breathing as much as you do right after a cold clears up. Anyway, off to get stuff done.

Luv,

Jess

I still haven't called in sick. I went to work this morning, and I was miserable. I ended up leaving early, which I've also never done before. But I was gracious. I needed the sleep. I e-mailed a prof to let her know that I was sick. I don't know if I'll still be able to turn in the assignment. It didn't matter to me though. I just went home and passed out. I had some strange dream about riding on a spaceship with my high school marching band. I think Strong Bad was in there somewhere too. Weird. Well, back to resting.

Luv,

Jess

Ouch!!! I thought since it wasn't my face, it wouldn't hurt as much, but I was way wrong. That hurt a LOT...possibly more than my face did. The tylenol did absolutely nothing. I should have requested pain medication. Next time I definitely will. The nice thing is, they charged me $125 less than they said they were going to. That made it worth the holding my breath, gritting my teeth, squeezing my eyes shut, and gripping the stress balls with all my might worth it. And hey, since my chest hurt so much, I couldn't feel the achiness in my leg from the shot this morning at all.

On other happy news, I got a call from my boss. He decided to accept my application. So, it looks like I'll be interviewing on Monday for the job. That makes me happy. My two exams went pretty well also. So I have reason to be smiling I guess. Now let's hope that the LGBT meeting tonight goes well too. Speaking of which, I better get to that. See ya later.

Luv,

Jess
