I got flowers delivered today! :D

Half the office knew before I did... lol
My supervisor seemed to be thrilled with the fact that someone sent them, I'd say even a little amused; stopping by every few minutes and asking what he tried to make subtle questions about the matter...

anyhow, now they're sitting at my desk :) yay!
and they have brightened my day -despite other matters that came up-

I'm kinda sad that they'll be here by themselves tomorrow though... oh well.
Yes people, this is what my desk looks like, the daily view I get for 10 hours straight.
If you look to the top left, you can see me, all smiles, reflected on the mirror I have there.
on the bottom left, you can see my little monkey, with his cute little tie that reads "I go bananas for you", which was also a gift.
Please excuse my bottle of water in the pic- lol.
And the top frame, my pics, these are the real things, what keep me going not just everyday, but throughout life.

Anyhow folks, it's Friday night and I gots work to do.... so as usual,
catch y'all later punks :P


Glasses of water

A heart sinks and soars as the endless waves of life crash upon it
deception, disappointment's, discourage...
they come from all directions
struggling to stay head over water, trying to find a way
beyond are endless miles of treacherous sea,
nothing to bear onto, nothing to keep going, nothing to strive for,
no aim, no hope,
all faith is lost and the outcome turns bleak....
yet the truth of the matter is that oceans are merely puddles, and we drown while standing on our knees...

when will we realize that we should stand our own, and not drown ourselves in glasses of water?

Monday morning [>_<]

It's monday and I'm miserable.
i suppose that lack of sleep and food might have something to do with it, but I don't really know that for a fact.
I just know that I have some sort of killer rage boiling inside me for no fuckin reason.
I didn't go to class today. Has says the warm weather has gotten to my head. I do admit that being from the Carribbean, warm weather does tend to make me lose focus from my priorities. I begged to go on some random great adventure for the day, that would involve me riding shotgun in his car. However, he wasn't quite diggin it, and wanted to email our proffessor. I begged and begged, all to no avail.
After he dragged my ass up the stairs to the 4th floor and then to the 5th floor to get online and start doing some work, Has and I realized that we can't even log into the school network.
I decide to go to Financial Aid and at least TRY to do something productive the class time I'm missing.
I got some good & some bad news from Financial Aid, but overall, nothing that will be particularly helpful at the momment. So I deiceded to try to figure out why I couldn't log into the school network, but of course no-one was there. I tracked down the head of the IT Dept and she changed my password. I was finally able to log in. Somehow, I'm not exactly thrilled nor overwhelmed with the news. *blank stare*
I TRY to start working on the damned assisgnemnt, purposely designed to bore you to death and back before you're even half-way done with the damned essay.
I gave up in record time, 7.52 minutes. ^#@#$ this @#@$#$!
anyhow. I think this has a strong dependency on lack of food and sleep, mainly, most likely completly, the food part.
I'm cranky andnow that I think of it I'm kinda sorry I'm being a meanie to Has.
For whatever it's worth, I decided to actually email the proffessor, like Has dragged me to. *grim half-assed smile that looks like a cross between a confused look and pain*
Anyhow. I need to get me some breakfast before I end up breaking something.

Whomever said that Breakfast is brainfood, Dude you were SO damnned right man!\

Catch y'all later chumps.

The will & grace of God

"To get something you never had,
you have to do something you never did"
When God takes something from your grasp,He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better.
Remember this: "The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you"

"Honoring God is honoring your authority, the guides above you."

"Don't give God instructions; just show up for duty"

I hate Bank of America

I hate Bank of America with a PASSION!

I had a Suntrust account, and I was a happy, law abiding citizen. I made sure I kept my balance straight, had my savings account and paid for my trip to NY, never had a credit card or a loan, just kept things simple. But my mom, tired of having to take me to the bank to cash my check, insistently nagged about how much of a drag it was to take ME somewhere else and that I should open an account with Bank of America, and that it was "the bank of opportunity" and that they were really really nice at the branch near my house.
I, silly, innocent I, as usual, decide to follow mom's advise and sure, go ahead, and open an account with Bank of America. I swear that right now, I have this insane urge to go to the nearest branch and hijack every last cent they have. Those people are trained to scam you, I swear.
I have had a horrible horrible experience with them since the day I opened my account.
I mean, my credit card was maxed out the day after I opened the damn thing. Then it was a fraud charge on my checking, which was reimbursed. Then there was the charge that went through two weeks after I used my card, and of course, I got slapped with an overdraft fee.
Then there was another fraud charge on my checking. Someone withdrew $600 from my checking account. This is school tuition money, that I work 10 hour daily shifts for. Rent money that I give my mom. Food money ( and believe me, never should you ever mess with me and my food!) and most importantly this is what caused me to have to use my credit card myself. I was never refunded those $600, no matter that I called numerous times and spoke to a million bzillion people and had like 5 claim numbers. I kept speaking to reps telling me that this issue was under investigation, that there was an account manager assigned to this and whole lot more baloney. Ultimatly, I got tired of getting the roundabout, went to the Bank and demanded to speak to the Branch Manager, just to find out that since the claim had been "Closed" over a month (which no-one decided to call me and let me know) there was nothing that could be done. Grrrreat.

See, I work in the Customer Service industry myself. I know what it's like when someone calls all frantic about something, so I try to be nice, civilized even. But what good does that do when people take advantage of you? I still decided to be the better citizen and take the high road... God will serve them their justice, I just gotta deal with paying off the pending balance on my credit card and close that damn thing out.
So why is it, that now I have 3 fraudulent charges on my account, all within 6 days and I also have 2 overdraft fees and I now owe the bank $200 that I didn't have to begin with?

So I got charged for a company called A1 Memberships, and here is the funny part. They first charge you $1.97. Then they charge you $2.17, and THEN they charge you $72.21. Please add overdraft fees here as necessary.
The even more messed up part is that they even have a phone number listed on the transaction description. It's 866-200-5473. Google it and see what you get. A listing of people saying they got Fraudulent transactions with the same general description: A1, several charges, $72.21, fraudulent charge.
It's supposedly from some "online source" that sells "Google kits" and that someone found from an add on Facebook. Like, SERIOUSLY?! and then, even more hilarious, the company is based in India, and it's a POS transaction (Point of Sale). Meaning you'd have to be in India and use your card to make the transaction. REALLY MF?! Don't you think I'd have enough money to cover the damn transaction IF and WHEN I was in India? Even more hilarious is the fact that several transactions for the same date were made in GA.
The exact same date.
Only ONE card for the account.
India and Atlanta, GA, within several hours.
In case you need a geography lesson, let me educate you a little: It would take several flights to get there, resulting in a total travel time exceeding 8-10 hours.
Now that all of this has been said, I'm a little cooled down. I'm still very much puzzled on how a single account can get targeted so many damned times within a YEAR!
I also happen to pay for credit protection. Biotches! you ain't protecting nothing when I get charges from India from shyt I didn't even try to buy, in a place I ain't ever been to!!!
So now I get the fantabulous task of once again, dealing with Bank of America Customer Services tomorrow.

"If these are the best days of my life, then someone shoot me now and get it over with already!"

Well chumps, that all for now... I'll keep y'all posted on this drama :/
Wish me patience. They're the ones that are gonna need the luck.
P.S.: If you a story that includes hostages, Bank of America, robbery and an Indian company called A1, it might've been me. haha.

Online classes, again

SOo... Maybe I don't hate online classes with such a passion anymore... I'm starting to get the point here.... Plan WAAAAAAAAY ahead, and it won't be too bad. Like Over-study... :S
Anyhow, so remember how I nearly had a fit with my first week's assignments cuz I posted the same paper on both portals and got different similarity scores?
Well, turns out that I got that 100% percent of similarity cuz... I posted on the wrong portal first.
In attempts to avoid people posting the exact same paper, turnitin also compares YOUR paper to OTHER STUDENT'S submitted papers, even if they're not for the same class.. Somehow or another this managed to just slip right over my head :S lol
anyhow, all that said and done, I got an A on the damn things.. haha :P

I gosta get goin, as usual...

"Wonder"- Nine Days


Hidden thoughts that lie within the apathy of my own goal and dreams
I cry myself to sleep with all the insecurities of love and life itself
This big old rock
Has fallen smack in the middle of this road that I have sought for so long

And I wonder, and I wonder
Will I make it through the thunder
And I pray the Lord, he carries me
With one set of footprints on the sea
The sands of my past life
I wonder

I sit and soak
My nerves are shot; my soul's a sponge, the crutch I hold that keeps me up
I hold my feet up
As across the tracks I prayed good luck ??

And I wonder, and I wonder
Will I make it through the thunder
And I pray the lord, he carries me
With one set of footprints on the sea
And the sands of my past life
I wonder
And I wonder
And I wonder

You say that sorrow is better than the happiness we're supposed to feel
Oh, you say that sorrow is better than the happiness we're supposed to feel
With a sad face the heart grows wiser

So call me the wise men
Because my sorrow rises well above as I grow older, my shoulders wither
And I wonder, and I wonder

WTMFFF!-Online classes issues

I posted my DB for the Bio class is the Env Sci class portal. I noticed the mistake, and I went back and uploaded the correct file for the Env Sci class, and I made sure to upload the bio file in the Bio portal. I look back today to see the similarity score. THE EXACT SAME MF ASSIGNMENT got a 50% score on one page and 100% similarity score on the other.
The really fukttup part is that 1) I wrote it and 2) I cited all my sources APA style with noodle tools like I was supposed to.

Online classes aggravate the living daylights out of me.
I'm angry.
