I FINISHED TRANSCRIBING THAT ONE INTERVIEW JFC.  FINALLY.  *headdesk*

Now I just have one to go and it’s MUCH shorter.

(OK, there were 15 minutes or so that I didn’t transcribe, but it was just us chatting and I know there’s probably good stuff in there, but I DON’T CARE.  I’M NOT OBLIGATED TO TRANSCRIBE US CHATTING WHEN THE ONLY REASON I HAVE IT IS BECAUSE I FORGOT TO TURN OFF THE RECORDER.)

I ended up curling up in bed with my cat for over an hour to make up for
booting him off the desk.  -.-;;;  Then I just gave up and when into
the other room and played games on my phone for two hours.  It was NOT a
productive evening.  *sigh*  Went back to working on the transcription
this morning, and I think I’m going to be shifting around my priorities a
bit.

To-Do for Wednesday (5/4)

  • Work
    • NOTHING.  If I have time to read the textbook, great.  If not… well.  I have a looseleaf copy of the book.  I can get the pertinent readings to the kids if I have to without ordering the book.

I THINK THAT’S ENOUGH TO BE GETTING ON WITH FOR NOW, DON’T YOU??  *falls over*

Well.  So far, today has been a MAJOR fail.  I’m just so mentally worn down.  I feel like I’m fighting my own brain trying to get it to do what I need it to do.  And it’s winning.  I think I’m going to shift my efforts to transcribing.  Because at this point, that’s more important… and requires WAY less brain power.  *heavy sigh*

Half of spring break down…

AT LEAST I FINISHED THE ACTUAL GRADING.  *headdesk*

ALL OF MY WORK STUFF IS DONE.  Well… except the syllabus, but I somehow don’t think that’s going to happen.  O_o;;;  So, now I just have my own work to do.  But first… I’m going to vacuum and then hang out with my cat for the rest of the night.  Hope you’re all having a good night, too!  ^_^

LAST ONE FOR THE NIGHT, I PROMISE. 

OK.  I have vacuumed and fielded a lot more stupidity about work stuff, and now I’m going to relax until midnight (when I have to take Gabriel’s food and water away), then try to go to sleep so I can get him to the vet by 8ish or so tomorrow.

Now I think I will screw around on tumblr for a bit.
