Anyway, looking at my school plans, I may just be able to work this in ... The classes I want to take are Monday/Wednesday, and the way it works out I would only miss the second session of one class, assuming I fly out Wednesday.
So many plans and possibilities rolling through my tired brain ... I really want to go to this. Dr. Harris wants me to go with her, she's offered to share her hotel room with me, at no cost to me. That's a huge help. I think going to the conference will be extremely useful to me as a tech ... make me better at what I do.
This is feasible ... i can do this ... the more i think about it, the more it seems like an opportunity i shouldn't pass up.
The concerns are school, cost, and the longer-term cost of missing two shifts at Central ... I'm hoping since I work full-time hours there now (grr) that they would be willing to give me vacation days for it.
It's been a busy weekend, and I have a busy couple of days coming up ... worked until one last night, then met up with Michael after work ... chatted with him and Andy for a bit, and then Michael and I went to Harbor House for dinner. yummy mushroom omlette with spinach ... i like spinach. I saw an old friend there that I haven't seen in years (funny how I can run into people at the oddest times and places ... he lives in Brea, I live in Moreno Valley, and I find him at 3 am in Sunset Beach) and I was disappointed to find that he's turned from a sweet little peaceful kid into a total asshole ...
Got back to my mom's after 4, slept a bit, and woke up at 9 to go get my tires changed ... did that, and now i get to drive my own car again! yay! I missed my car ... I don't like driving my mom's truck, it's a gaswhore and just not my style. and now I'm home, back at my house for now. I should nap before school, I've got class tonight, a graveyard shift after that, and then a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning. all sorts of fun.
