It'sa lotta work

Sheesh. I have so many balls up in the air that I'm juggling for college.

I'm trying to figure out if my 4 year university received my official transcripts along with my application and that *choke* fee. And my current college has the status of my transcript listed as "pending. check back later." Thanks, buttmunches. I only requested it about 2 weeks ago, and it was promised to be out in 3 days. Idiots.

So I have to deal with that. The transcripts, the fees, the applications, all ending up in the right place at the right time. Plus I have to put in my application for graduation, which I will do next week.

OH AND!!! I have a final just two days before I graduate. That sucks! The whole week leading up to my graduation is crammed full of tests. Cracker Jacks!

One small piece of good news: I can have my ballroom dancing credit waived. My advisor can put in the paperwork for me to have my "fine arts" credit waived. And I think I'll take it. Hey, it's not often when a college will allow you to squirm out of something because that means they won't get any money.

I kinda enjoyed the ballroom dancing, but just barely. Too many girls in the class, we had to learn the male and female parts, which means we don't really master either part very well... the teacher was hell bent on us switching partners all the time, and the class was too full anyways. Ergo, I'll drop it. Ryan and I will try something like this some other day.

I have a small desk here for my computer. I just switched my mouse from right handed to left handed, to help avoid carpal tunnel problems and other assorted problems. But now I can't get the keyboard in a place to my liking. Grrrrr. Well, in time it should get into a place that I like.
For example... to customize my place for me, so that it's ergonomically correct, I have 3 mousepads under my mouse to help bring my wrist into proper alignment. So that's the kind of stuff I'm noodling around with right now.

Like a cat, I need to fuss with it and turn around umpteen times before I'm happy with my placement.
