Enjoy your nice long weekend......I wish we were getting some rain....but instead we got a frost warning!

Horn_of_plenty on 05/29/2021:
OH MY! yes, temps are seasonally low now! instead of high! a week ago, it was like 90F! now it's 48F, also quite chilly for practically JUNE!

Horn_of_plenty on 05/29/2021:
i do look forward to enjoying the slower pace of this weekend, Bear :)


Donkey on 05/30/2021:
It has been quite chilly this past week here, but we're warming up to moderate temperatures for this week. I'm sure soon enough we'll be back to the blazin' hot and humid we had 2 weeks ago -- that was kind of awful.

Your meatball dinner sounds really delicious! Sorry that your other food plans didn't work out, but I don't blame you. Nobody likes a mushy chicken nugget. Some of those are just vile. I don't like the Tyson ones either.

horn_of_plenty on 05/30/2021:
It’s amazing the difference in nugget qualities out there!

Perhaps it’s a fries / McDonald’s nuggets night tonight .... or soon !

I know I am due to comment on your entries abs will get caught up later today :)

Friday, 5/28/21: Upper Body AM

Breakfast: banana and coffee 150, eggo waffle with sf erythritol very tasty syrup 200. 350.

snacks: pb, 100, kombucha 50 (leftover half bottle as i'm not bringing it home during my commute a heavy half bottle, so, i'm hoping it helps me use the bathroom since it's quiet i can go downstairs.  my bathroom issues DID get a lot better as i got more familiar with this job - and being able to use the bathroom a little bit by going downstairs when there wasn't meetings. next, i'll be in a trailer, prob worse bathroom conditions. oh well...

more pb 100

lunch: tomatoes 50, microwavable edamame dish 400. 

snacks: close to 3pm dismissal time, gummies 100

4:30-5pm home snacking gummies 150 yes again , dried fruit 100, seltzer,

dinner: thinking to drive and get some mcdonalds later tonight, side of veggies of my own. Eggplant the Indian prepared once that I left out the other night overnight and then put in the fridge - seems ok and I have extra - glad I didn't buy more takeout today...I also already had full bags going home with things I was bringing home from work and moreover lost ab appetite to even think of buying more food as I was heading home at 3, shortly after lunch.

7pm fage greek 140, stevia, chia seeds 30, cherry jelly regular - i do less sugar free with certain foods now - jellys have old school artificial sweeteners- not the newer types, 50. approx 250.

1800.


 As of yesterday 2pm when my boss pushed a rolling chair near me and my eyes popped out of my head thinking why does he even want to sit next to me - he told me i was being transfered to a different job site and I would no longer be doing any of the work relating to working with him anymore and to just leave it here. He didn't ask me to show him my work or go over anything - which I did think was odd.  Well, that's why the last few weeks he's ignored me - he's been doing some of the work himself and keeping some information from me.  Yesterday morning he acted pleasant more than usual - and i see it's because he was glad to get what he wanted and have me out of the office and no longer working with him.  He may end up doing the work i was doing himself; or the company may be having more changes made. I do know that someone else is being hired with a ton of expertise in project management - more than almost every PM / assistant project manager here - so that person may become more involved and assume my role in addition to his. IDK. all i do know is my boss was an @**h*le to me leading up to this move and never did have my back. I also know i found a lot of his own errors and when he wanted me to be so perfect at times - and he picked on some little things - he made a thousand mistakes just the same. I know i did a good job. Things are much more organized than when i came here, January 4th, 2021.  

It hurts to be professionally rejected by anyone, even when I can say i did way more right than wrong at this job and that I learned the minimal things there were to learn. So, what were these past 5 months? An experience. A light experience where I learned more about bullying and i was reminded how I need to keep my own mouth closed most of the time. How even when people say things, not to respond back and just let their words evaporate into the air rather than respond and then they don't like my response. I learned very little in terms of the work / technical things. But I also learned everything I could have learned and showed myself how I could learn a new job, work in a new company, and get the work done. It's not all a loss, but the past 5 months are definitely in general a negative experience. I can learn from it, yes, but i'm glad to put this workplace being me.

I will be working with everyone who i do not know by face, only name right now - except the one woman who i took over for - she was moved there, too. it will be a little akward - there's already 2 admins there....so, like i was saying, i need to be quiet and just listen and otherwise say nothing.

It seems I should drive to new loacation job because it will cut down the commute by over a half hour...the bad thing is that I lose all my reading and studying time on the train...but with a rather short commute by driving, i should take it that way...it could actually be under an hour driving. but by public transportation, it's over 1.5 hours. I'll lose a lot of exercise....but i guess then i can do it at home, after work...

lol - and as far as any raises, that ain't happening in my future at this company, ever.

Donkey on 05/28/2021:
Remember that when you start your new position not to say anything negative about your old boss - at least not for a while.

Regarding your new commute, I would recommend keeping an open mind. At my last job, I changed my commute 3 times, finally ending up with public transportation. I just didn't want the stress of a morning drive right before starting an even more stressful workday. Public transportation allowed for a nap and a nice walk.

horn_of_plenty on 05/28/2021:
thank you for the reminder, it is hard for me to stop the negative talk, younger coworker when nobody was around couldn't believe i was leaving and not continuing my job...i was surprised my boss didn't tell him yesterday after i left.

i said to him how my boss refused working with me for like the past three weeks, shouldn't have said it, yes, and he was like wow, i had no idea...i don't think he'll say anything, will not even remind him to keep it quiet as i see already he doesn't chat, at all, with my "ex-boss."

again, thank you for the reminder, it's best you said it to me for sure because i can always use a repeated suggestion that is helpful, yes.

i think i'll be driving as it's much shorter in the morning to drive. the other option is: 1 bus, swithing to train, switch to train 2, swtich to train 3. too much, i've realized. and if any train or bus is delayed, it is too easy for it not to be reliable.

so, i'll drive.

glad my car is decent. it's around 110k miles. i think my car could last till 200k. it's a 2009.


innerpeace on 05/28/2021:
I would hate not having some kind of value at my job. I agree, though you didn't learn much and particularly like your boss, I wouldn't talk negatively about him.

Maybe you will like this place better - is it still part of the same company? I hope you can figure out your commute and what works best for this job. Have a great weekend.

horn_of_plenty on 05/28/2021:
yes, it's a field site for a project on the Wastewater treatment plant and also a couple other projects too, that i do not know too much about yet.

i heard it is nicer people there. i think i'll drive to get there easier ;)


bearcountrygg on 05/28/2021:
You learned something....and also...what IP and Donkey said about negative talk.

horn_of_plenty on 05/28/2021:
Yes, that is right on everything, indeed <3

it's been so tough with employment. at least i have my apartment to be happy about. that's a big freedom and very low cost, so thankful for that. it's prob the best asset in my life. (and a loving family - parents, sister.)

Sad to say that I'd rather go to the doctor's office, too, than to stay at work - yes, even the Gyn. Hope everything goes well for you!

horn_of_plenty on 05/27/2021:
agreed on ALL!

i will write you back regarding your questions yesterday, i ran out of time yesterday to respond :)


Donkey on 05/27/2021:
Maybe take off weights today and tomorrow? Sounds like your body could use the rest...

horn_of_plenty on 05/27/2021:
will try to drift off early tonight to get the weights in tomorrow AM...my weights routines are quite strong now, but, it's just so early to wake up (i keep forgetting i need to go to bed around 9pm-like you- not 10pm to feel refreshed. some days, i'm even ok with going to bed before 9pm...but i haven't done that recently during the week yet...)


Donkey on 05/27/2021:
I thought of you tonight, while trying to push through lower body weights. Only did 2 - but different than this morning. Ohhhh it was hard...

horn_of_plenty on 05/28/2021:
i thought of you this AM - when i decided to lay in bed and not use my last bit of energy to do an upper body workout - it can go happen on the weekend :)


happy-1 on 05/28/2021:
Good job!

horn_of_plenty on 05/28/2021:

Donkey on 05/28/2021:

Donkey on 05/26/2021:
I noticed that you are going to prolong (?) the Accounting class. That may be a wise decision, especially since you will want to enjoy some of the summer weather with your volunteering opportunities AND just enjoying the outdoors more in general.

I'm a little confused - did you get your tablet? Have you found it to be helpful (presuming you've received it)? I'm thinking of getting a tablet in the next 6 months or so.

Get those chest flyes in tonight! LOL, only if you have the motivation to do so. Sometimes I just poop out at the end of the day...

horn_of_plenty on 05/27/2021:
I def want to finish the Accounting class, even if it takes longer yes, before the Business Law class i'm taking as my last Paralegal advanced program. may need to put off the paralegal if i don't finish accounting in a month from now...

I will try to study the accounting more this long weekend, as there's around 15 chapters, and i'm only finishing Chapter 2. will try to make progress today, if my boss would stay out of his office a little - which he does - he constantly leaves to go next door to speak with the owner...and nobody else is sitting in back of me today - a prime day to study, as long as boss leaves his office...we'll see!

no, didn't get the tablet, it was an email error. I should get it tomorrow.

Once i get it, i'll use it primarily on days when it's extremely quiet at work, and boss isn't here, so my constant use of internet isn't recorded.

i ended up doing the chest flies, but waited all night and did 3 sets in a period of like an hour - terrible waste of time to take that long! i rested for like 15min between sets, LOL. finishing around 9:45pm.

you are right - i should enjoy summer, but, i also enjoy learning when i'm not under pressure and it seems i can fit in both studying and volunteering on/off throughout. (it means i will not see friends every weekend or skip volunteering when i want to see a friend!)

Work is now SO MUCH EASIER, so, i should try to get my studying in, see what i can do, as i'll be studying now for 2 years straight, on and off.

Love my iPads. Have three, but ordered a Samsung Galaxy last month to see what others devices are like. Prefer the iPad, but possibly because it’s what I’m used to.

horn_of_plenty on 05/27/2021:
when you try the new samsung, report back to us what you think. what's the third brand you have?

horn_of_plenty on 05/27/2021:
2 ipads?


Jacky82020 on 05/27/2021:
The Gen 5 was slowing down, so I bought a Gen 7. Also have a larger screen one that I find difficult to hold for reading. Using the Gen 5 for reading and keep the Gen 7 open for the stock market streams,

I won’t get around to using the Samsung until one of the iPads croaks for good. Saw a good buy at Prime and got it. Played with it for a few weeks.

It’s funny in that it composes 3 responses to emails. Heard some cells do it, but new to me. I kept sending myself goofy ones from my various email accounts to see the responses. Some were hilarious. For some, they don’t have any canned replies. Like when I said I killed my husband and buried him in the yard. Matt told me to quit before the SWAT team breaks down the door.

i come into work the past two days with the AC just blowing straight down on me (i sit below a large AC unit that cools the entire large room), yesterday door wide open. makes me really angry as i do not need strong cold breezes the minute i sit down to my desk. also, my boss doesn't delegate anything...he just does his work and anything i cannot do for some reason bc i need something from him - he ignores! there's things from November and December that he's just ignoring. impossible!

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

Donkey on 05/25/2021:
I don't envy your desk position at work. Could you wear a hat? Seriously, I keep a heavy late-autumn fleece jacket at work to wear when I'm feeling too chilled from the AC.

My morning was quite rushed too, and had to really squeeze in 2 weight exercises (for the upper back). There's just not enough time to do the things I really want to do.

horn_of_plenty on 05/25/2021:
yes, i brought in a hat and did wear it yesterday :) i said to myself, let me just blast my heat...and i am wearing layers :) but yes, i have a hat that i wear if all else fails.

boss walked away, so i add two degrees to the room temp increasing it ;)

yeah, sometimes the time catches us off-guard! :)


Jacky82020 on 05/25/2021:
Measles! What kind? Didn’t know adults did that. Understand some physicians and vets deceive about how long vaccines last to bring in the bucks. Some confer lifelong immunity, but they ain’t telling ya.

horn_of_plenty on 05/25/2021:
yeah, every 10 years they give it to adults...

it is free for me, just an office visit. perhaps $15 copay as my copays are less for union doctors at the hall...maybe free bc it's just for the shot 2nd dose - they do it in 2 doses, 2 months apart. a 10-yr thing like i was saying.

you could be right, idk, not like the measles is widespread here. but, if i travel, maybe good to have! ha! i get you completely.

BTW - LOVING my library app. sometimes there's glitches, it freezes or takes long to load a book, but, FREE!


Jacky82020 on 05/25/2021:
Glad you like the library app. Never have any problems with it on this here ipad Works the same as buying a book from Amazon. Maybe you can request technical help. They were always quick to assist

horn_of_plenty on 05/25/2021:
they list the errors and why on their app...they know there's bugs.! ha! this is the Queens one.


Jacky82020 on 05/25/2021:
Only do Brooklyn!

horn_of_plenty on 05/25/2021:
that's the only one i do not do! ha ha ha

i think the NYPL includes staten island and bronx, but i could be wrong!

LOL.

reason i do not do brooklyn is i'd do it only if i worked there...and i've got the Manhattan and Queens, SO THERE! <3


Jacky82020 on 05/25/2021:
All my downloads are fast & flawless So there. LOL

horn_of_plenty on 05/25/2021:
yeah seems so!!! haha


Jacky82020 on 05/25/2021:
At least yours was free I have to pay $50 a year, nothing compared to what I used to pay. Kindle Unlimited sucked for me. Too much fiction and ppl uploading their poorly written fictitious memoirs

horn_of_plenty on 05/25/2021:
and for some reason, when i had kindle unlimited, i still had to pay for certain books...did that happen to you?


Jacky82020 on 05/25/2021:
No, it was a flat $9.99 a month, maybe less when purchased by the year. Very limited nonfiction selection. No new stuff. Kindle Unlimited led to my being permanently banned from doing Amazon reviews. Used to trash the liars on their fake memoirs. But when Amazon banned me , they said it was because I was being paid. LOL. What a joke! They removed hundreds of reviews left over several years. Impossible to appeal. I tried. Finally they said: We discussed you with Jeff Bezos and he agrees you have violated community standards. LOLOLOL

Horn_of_plenty on 05/25/2021:
LOL, at least you were siscussed with JB! :)


Jacky82020 on 05/25/2021:
Right. That was hilarious!

Donkey on 05/24/2021:
How long is your lunch break? 30 minutes? 1 hour? If you don't walk during your lunch, what do you do? Is there a break room?

horn_of_plenty on 05/24/2021:
not really a break room, can sit at desk and look online without worry of people caring if it's lunch; i can go outside to supermarket, when i'm busy, i just eat the half hour and don't leave the building...

..if i'm not busy i kinda take the half hour out (lunch is half hour) and still take time to eat at desk (kinda taking an hour!)

but in terms of payment, i am not paid a half hour, which is lunch.

the union allows either a half hour or hour for lunch.

obv, it's best to take half, then leave half hour early instead of remaining at work...

i usually always relax / go over the exact half hour between heating up food, etc.

when i was new here, i didn't go out for over a month, just ate at my desk, rushed back to work.

but lately, i leave for around 20-30 min - pick up bananas at a good price a few blocks away or supermarket. or just walk around.

horn_of_plenty on 05/24/2021:
being in city, it's not boring to walk outside...

also, as i've told you i think, we eat at our desks. there is actually no lunch room and i prefer my desk to a table downstairs at the entrance to the building where everyone passes you by (not private like a lunchroom could be!)

5/21 Friday Upper Body weights AM DONE !

Jury Duty - I wasn't selected even for questioning once i was there. i was one of the last to arrive and was told that they needed the number they had already...and myself and like 15 others didn't even get to be chosen for questioning, but were let out at 1pm, i was home by 2pm. and went food shopping, lots of new frozen food finds with riced cauliflower.

had a nice chat with court officer who's been in courts long time and only had good things to say about my hope to get into the courts thru. Ivik service and didn't agree with my "aunt" who said they are getting rid of them - he feels there will be lots of hiring bc of retirement during Covid and he said it's higher positions where they want to higher outside of civil service, but not incoming low end jobs to start he said are still def by civil service he said.. - I can see his way of thinking - makes sense - i look forward to working for the courts in the future if i can help myself get there. and it's a hustling, bustling area and a good bus commute to those courts. will try to make it happen in the future.

 


Eats so far- 

banana, kombucha 200

9:30am chia bar, candy 150

11am break they let us go outside, many stores and even a good supermarket! Starbucks decaf coffee with soy milk 50, chia seed bar again 100

2pm lunch 2 leftover falafels 150, with some cucumber salad small amount negl, and some prepared spinach/garlic from supermarket that i can taste is about to spoil ugh! shouldn't have bought it but it looked good 150, 2 leftover pieces of pita 50, 2 servings nachos spices nice flavor 300. 650...might try the dessert i bought...small tiramisu 300 (small!). see, it was good, the dessert, but i finsihed it so fast...makes it not worth it on these types of desserts.

Sat 5/22 -

was going to go to one park to walk with parents, but of course my mom changes the destination...after i present it to them, she says: "well, why not this one..."..it's like i come up with something so instead of just agreeing...she needs to disagree and make up her own plan. very annoying. but, as long as i'm walking, i guess, who cares. but the thing is, i wanted to go somewhere new for everyone, her plan i've already been there. as long as i'm walking, i'm OK though.

I've never been called for jury duty... walking is good whenever/where ever you can do it...that's a good attitude to have when it didn't work out where you wanted. Have a great weekend.

Donkey on 05/22/2021:
I'm glad that you had a chance to speak with a court officer. That sounds like it was a helpful and hopeful conversation.

I've been called 2x for jury duty. Once, I was selected, but the case settled out of court, right before the trial was to start. The second time, we were ALL dismissed at noon, because there weren't any trials that week. There was a judges' conference that week.

Horn_of_plenty on 05/22/2021:
yes, the officer had a very different view than my "aunt" - not really an aunt as i'm not even blood related, she's related to sister's husband.

she has a higher position than the court officer. I think she's not really current anymore with the rules and regulations and hiring process of the civil service tests and procedures for the lower level jobs.

it's nice the early dismissal. i just it as an advantage to both shop and then rest...yes, better than work.

read some of new romance novel tonight :) and bed early. Jury Duty tomorrow -  a nice day off from work. but i gotta say, Fridays are great for studying a little at work. I can study at the court.


5/21 Friday Upper Body weights AM DONE !

jury duty....Yes, super happy about a change of pace for Jury Duty.. plus, i have to show up on 9am which is later than my usual time to show up at 7:30am, meaning, i could more easily get up and do my upper body workout :) and not rush. :)

i'm going to see how many days is perhaps the average for Jury Duty, i could use a little "work break." but if it's too long, too many days out of work, that wouldn't work well...

plus, i have a dr appt next week on Thursday. so, i have to be free at that time.I'll prob cancel the appt if I get chosen- rather serve than not serve I've decided.

I think I'll get out of court early - if so, I'm shopping back at supermarket, buying frozen veggies to sauté as well as some kombucha and a tiny single serve cheesecake... they have a huge selection bc the supermarket is opposite the courthouse so lots of money goes into it- I hope one day to be working in this area exactly if I get into the courts- good commute and a dog would be in my future :-)

had a nice chat with court officer who's been in courts long time and only had good things to say about my hope to get into the courts thru. Ivik service and didn't agree with my aunt who said they are getting rid of them - he feels there will be lots of hiring bc of retirement during Covid and he said it's higher positions where they want to higher outside of civil service, but not incoming lose end lositikns - I would see his way - makes sense 
 Eats so far- 

banana, kombucha 200

9:30am chia bar, candy 150

11am break they let us go outside, many stores and even a good supermarket! Starbucks decaf coffee with soy milk 50, chia seed bar again 100

500..


Sat 5/22 -

was going to go to one park to walk with parents, but of course my mom changes the destination...after i present it to them, she says: "well, why not this one..."..it's like i come up with something so instead of just agreeing...she needs to disagree and make up her own plan. very annoying. but, as long as i'm walking, i guess, who cares. but the thing is, i wanted to go somewhere new for everyone, her plan i've already been there. as long as i'm walking, i'm OK though.


Sun, May 23..will be home mostly, doing homework, relaxing...

Good for you on getting the leg work done this morning! I took a break today from weight training, out of precaution. I don't want to press myself physically any more than I have to, in case I have side effects from shot #2.

Boy, TOM sure is taking its time getting here, for you, isn't it? Argh!

horn_of_plenty on 05/20/2021:
i have to look at when i last got TOM...i may be very off on thinking it should be coming, LOL...

my leg routine is under 10 min, i think. it's weak, but enough.

horn_of_plenty on 05/20/2021:
lol, i shouldn't get it till June. i was off....just bad leg cramps / even abdomen cramps. maybe due to the 2nd shot messing with me a little bit. or just due to lots more sitting, etc.


bearcountrygg on 05/20/2021:
Maybe you won't have to have jury duty!

horn_of_plenty on 05/21/2021:
Now I’m hoping for it - something new, later hours than work, shorter hours than work, shorter commute than work..


Donkey on 05/21/2021:
You will have plenty of time to study at jury duty. Good chance you won't be selected for voir dire on a Friday.

horn_of_plenty on 05/21/2021:
You are right the asked about our schedules for next week....

I’ve chosen to read an ebook thru my library to relax for now but I have my notebook with me for studies but probably just relaxing for now bc it’s Friday !!!
