A Procrastinators Journal......

I am suppose to be studying.     I am tired.  My mind is wandering to other things that interest me far more.     I have been sitting on the couch looking at photography books and shooting pictures of light hitting things in my place.    I have talked on the phone and boiled water twice to make tea.   I have eaten strudels,  and even used my good Tiffany's perfume as room spray.    I put on the fireplace and made cream of chicken soup for dinner.   Got the pillow off my bed and put it on the couch.    Found some chocolate covered blueberries in the cupboard and ate those fairly quickly.      So....    the exam is tomorrow morning.  Early.     Am I ready?      It's my own fault if I am not right?    So I am going to SERIOUSLY  study for the next several hours.   

(That's me talking to myself). 

So to get in the right mind-set,  I have been searching out pictures.   More procrastinating.   Here's what I found.  

I am already a technican.   the government is making us take courses to do what I already do and Its going to cost around $3000  -  what a deal.   They say you are an assistant until you become a technician.   well alot of us are already technicians and they just changed the orientation on all the documents.  such a government thing to do.    maybe i will get a new bagdge.
anyways,   i just have to do it.   that's that.
exam"s........    This is my objective.    1 at a time.
I need to know all the secrets and then It would be so much easier i am sure.

put on the thinking cap. i know if i had one of these i would be so much smarter.  

Figure out what I need to know and what i don't.
(Like this is a dna strand model and not a necklace)

Would it be safe to take all these together?
Hopefully all the questions are that easy but i doubt it.

Can you manufacture a pharmaceutical compound?
(really its just like following a recipe to make a cake!)
the problem is when they get all "sciencey" on you and start using words like emulsion and titrate and solute.

is this needle leaking at the hub or are you expelling extra volume?    And do you think this clear liquid is morphine, sterile water or  another substance.     thats how they talk in circles.  The answer would be - you wouldn't know unless you have the vial or solution source there also.     accuracy is paramount.

I am not allowed to wear a skirt that short - nor should i !
but if the doctor ordered it - we will send it.
the big issue in my job is.....   are you sterile?
remove all your makeup , nailpolish, and jewellery.   tie up your hair,  remove any body piercings that are exposed and strip yourself of any self esteem a woman at  the age of 40 something may still have.      sheesh.      i am too old for this.
so re-focus,  be positive and get with it......

This made me laugh.     Right now.    on the procrastination scale.   it's right up there!

Okay.   so wish me luck.     this is only the first of a whole series of exams over the next year.     I promise you i will whine and complain the whole way through.      and hopefully somewhere  in between i will find time to be creative and travel and visit with my dearest friends because that is what I truly want to do.

With highlighter in hand,    and pencil sharpened......

I sign off.

Oh goodness gracious Juliet, just get off the computer, turn off the T.V. open those books and STUDY!!!!!!!!!
I'm yelling at you STUDY!!!!!!!
But you sure make it sound funny ; )
You'll pass with flying colours, cuz your world is filled with colours.
Off to the hospice with Randy and Colt. Make those magical pumpkin muffins, Colt did. It's a fall day today, no sun, just cold. Sweater weather.
Mom had a good night. Chad stayed with her. No pain, just peaceful. So much better than that stupid hosp. that's for sure.
Love you sista # 1.

I hate studying....but HEY your Smart, you'll do fine. I just KNOW you are smart, so don't argue with me. (incase you were going to say something, or roll your eyes at me)
Of course, that would be just like the gov't to make you take a test to be CERTIFIED to do what you have been doing and doing well for that matter.
Maybe every politician should be tested before being allowed to re-run for office.
Just to make sure they Know, what they THINK they know...like how many provinces are there, that kind of stuff.
and if they don't give you a BADGE
I'll make one for you and send it.
(even though I am the least crafty person in the whole wide world)
Ok...I'll buy one.

I think you'd look great in that little nurses outift (tee,hee)

anyway my dear, good luck with your test , and party when it is over.
Love ya muchly.

Hi Julie!
If you get a badge, I want one too :) I am sure you did fine..you're smart and we have both been doing this for a long time..that counts for something right? The whole thing is so messed up...I am done and I didn't get a CCO so none of my stuff gets paid for..no fair! But, I am glad it's done, even if it was "voluntary" :)

I am so glad you are posting again Julie. I have been here a number of times and nope, nothing new. This post is a sort of study and that goes for me too, I know nothing about these things. See, you know much more than you are letting on. As fr the dna 'beads' they are very colorful. See, color is what impresses me. HA! We have a saying in our family, JDI, just do it.

Your are a very smart cookie so just get it going and you will do well.

I talked to Claudie and she is breaking my heart with this sad turn of events with her mom. I am so thankful that Hospice is with her mom now. Did you know my oldest daughter is a Hospice nurse. She is so good with people and has 25 years of nursing experience. I'm glad she is taking some time to regroup for what is ahead.

I love you and miss you sista, very very much. You are so dear to me Julie. I am so happy that we met. You are a friend that lights up our lives. I mean it!

So study and get certified.
Love you bunches, Jeanne xoxoxo

Doll Baby, YOU are so fun to read! Truly...you are MISSING your true calling! A writer you WILL ALWAYS be, and one that as I struggle to find more balance will come swooning to your blog post to brighten my day.

I love your DEEP thoughts...and the smiles you put on my face... You touch my funny bone inside my tummy! Is that possible? Yup ~ with you it is Jewels... YOU do that to me as you ink ink ink your words. Well, type type type your words would be more accurate, EH?

I love you Sista #1. :)
Your forever ROOMIE that wants you to fly to ATLANTA soon... ;)
