Another day another dollar

Today was the scholarship application deadline. You know, you give people 3 months to apply, they STILL apply within the last 3 hours. In the last 24 hours I received over 100 applications. I the last two hours I received 46. Each one needs to be put in manually. Yes, that DOES mean, one by one. I am so fricken tired I can't even see straight. I have not eaten, drank water or nothing. I feel like I am on SURVIVOR. ha ha!
Anyhow last year we only received and processed 600 applications. I really busted my a$$ then to process them all. This year we received 1450!!! That is just as of 6pm. The deadline is midnight tonight. So, we just may come close to 1500. That is more than double from last year! No wonder I am so tired!
I am suppose to be at school tonight reviewing for a mid term exam but I am just sooooooo exausted. I cant even spell right. Shhesh!!

You know I have been back at work for less than a week. I just feel so tense and agitated. My boss wanted to know what time my office opens. Well, let's see... the office hours have been posted on my door for FIVE years. I am really not going to allow her to get to me. I think I will take off on thursday and friday due to pain in my back and neck. I will let my doctor know that I am getting pain from sitting for long periods of time. Maybe I can get more time off. I am just sooooooooo over this place.
I just found out that we are not receiving pay increases this year. It does not matter if we score really high on our evaluations or really low... we still will not get anymore money. We usuallly get an increase with our evaluations... or a Cost of Living Allowance. It was negotiated in our contract and now the Board of Trustees is saying that they have no money. WTF!!??
I think this is a really good sign that it is time to leave..

Alot has happened but I have been too busy to blog! Well, just to be brief... the electricity turned off at our campus today. It was great! I came into work to find everyone standing outside. I thought maybe it was an early morning fire drill.... WRONG!! The whole campus lost power. Classes were getting canceled and we did not know if they were going to be sending us home or not. I thought, wow this is GREAT!!
Well, they did not cancel work today but they did tell us we can go home and come back at 12 noon to report back and begin working. What a bummer. So I went to pick up my daughter and we went to have a nice breakfast and went to FRYS electronics store to walk around... stopped by the credit union then took her home. Since it was only 11:30 I thought I would sneak back into the building.. ( the power was back on at 10:30 but the boss said 12 noon and I am only trying to obey orders) and took a nap in the air conditioned room for 30 minutes. Boy was it nice... ahhhh... What a wonderful monday!!!
