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.

2 small apricots 50

1500..animal crackers 50

 dinner: choc pb 100, buttermilk pancakes so good just bought fresh 160, sf syrup ive had in fridge, good!, berry greek yogurt 150...tasty breakfast for dinner. must do this more. 400.

white choc truffle :) 100
2050....


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.

Horn_of_plenty on 05/22/2021:
:-)


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.

5/20 Thurs - Legs AM - DONE!

still no TOM (i have bad thigh pain but TOM not till June probably..), still right thigh pain more than typical, bad week/month in terms of pain...

*no jury duty today - call again after 5pm today...*

breakfast: banana 120, coffee 30, muffin 100...250

snacks: 9am dark choc chia seed bar 100, 10am pb 100

lunch: falafel over salad from food cart...test that out - very good, multiple servings of falafels and great price...650 cals with pita some sauce..

...buy from stand:   4 bananas, 3 peppers for pigs from stand, strawberries, plums. good prices.

snacks: 2pm decaf black sweetened stevia, 1 dark choc pb dove. 50, 1 more choc at 3pm.

dinner: thinking same as yesterday, fruit fresh tasty raspberries 100, thai veggies 150 w/ rice 150, yogurt with jelly/stevia 200. that was good last night...600, maybe kombucha 50, some gummies 50

1900-1950, excellent.

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-

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 !!!

I'm not pushing myself, so if i have to take longer and pay more - that is OK. if for some reason it costs more than $400, i will try better with the statistics course. but it's ok.  it's a good system, Straighterline, and lately i can study a bit at work - so it's going well.

Summer 2021 July-August - BUSINESS LAW (taking it thru Center for Legal Studies, last course in adv paralegal that i want to take, and good bc it relates to business management). Prepaid last year for this, so it's a good course but I will not pay for any more studies because I learned what I need to for now in terms of paralegal studies and I have my certificate plus extra studies now - it will not help me currently and I will hope that having this helps me in the future to get into the courts (probably will help, yes). And of course, I know that all learning and studies are a good challenge to myself.  :-D

Fall 2021 Sept/Oct or Nov start - Prerequisite II - STATISTICS I -  taking it thru Straighterline.com - I have been told i need to complete 2 prerequisites prior to signing up for the SUNY program. Payment when I take it.

Winter/Spring 2022 - SUNY Financial Management & Analysis Cert program, 4 classes to take up to 2 years because each course will take a semester long to complete and learn. Pay as i go so it's not a total wash of my funds all in one shot. :-D maybe i'll even get a raise between now and then..

dinner:  i really want to try out some buttermilk pancake mix and might have pancakes for dinner - just a normal serving, with turkey bacon, and thai veggies / bamboo leftovers on the side! pancake mix as i opened it had an ant and they were old mixes from a friend so i just threw them out. fortunately, i brought my white rice home from work, 300, veggies 150, 5% full fat yogurt with cherry jelly and stevia 250. 700...

Jacky82020 on 05/19/2021:
I am reading a terrific book on Clarence Darrow. Another god that failed. Guess I liked him from Inherit the Wind. He was America’s best known lawyer at one time, maybe still is. A skilled orator who knew how to relate to the jury and judge. But low on legal knowledge and relied on others for that. Chased after union work because the pay was great. The book focuses on his defense of 2 pro union brothers from SF who blew up the LA Times building and killed 20 ppl. Injured many more.

His associates got a plea bargain and saved them from the gallows. Think this was circa 1911. Darrow was later tried twice for attempting to bribe jurors. Whenever he took on a big union job, he required the union to print up pamphlets of his closing arguments that were distributed around the country, elevating his name is recognition. He was also a pig who did many women while married & hated to bathe. Interesting book!

horn_of_plenty on 05/19/2021:
lol, maybe i'll read this book next...like next month when i finish this George Orwell read which is a little bit of a morass...slow going now in the middle of the book...but OK.

it's called "The Road to Wigen Pier" takes place a little after the book you mention here.


Jacky82020 on 05/19/2021:
Great read! Yet another ebook from the Brooklyn Library. See pic above.

horn_of_plenty on 05/19/2021:
I will look...thank you...i'm so bad, still paying for amazon kindle !!! stupid. must start using library ebooks asap...will work on it...that's on my major TO DO list...maybe figure out later today..


Jacky82020 on 05/19/2021:
I had to pay $50 as out of state user, probably free for you

horn_of_plenty on 05/19/2021:
yes, i believe free. just need to see what's going on...how long can you take an ebook out for?


Jacky82020 on 05/19/2021:
Think it’s 3 weeks Usually read them quickly or return fast if they suck

horn_of_plenty on 05/19/2021:
how do you both take out and return an ebook? help me out...


Jacky82020 on 05/19/2021:
Yep, like any library, you choose what you want. You don’t have to return it, they’ll pull it off your device in 3 weeks, but I return them ASAP as a courtesy to others on the wait list.

You have to download the overdrive app. Open it & get to library. Then make your selections. Most go into your Kindle app.

See SS’s

Weight: 110.0

 studying in evening is causing me to snack / binge when I used to not do that before starting to study in evenings (rather, attempting to study - it's not working in the evenings).  therefore, I do not need to study during weekday evenings and I will stop; as I study enough during my commute...I'll have to do the note taking on weekends only not evenings when I work and try to decompress at night. Lesson learned. That's what's been contributing to my recent overeating, esp nights during the work week. I may have already gained a little due to several days of eating more than usual, but nothing substantial.

Donkey on 05/18/2021:
Why do you think you're snacking during Accounting when you didn't have this problem for Paralegal?

horn_of_plenty on 05/18/2021:
Paralegal i only did weekends, not work nights.

Paralegal, the really hard-core, when i was unemployed and doing it - easier while not working...and had the whole day/more snacking options - not just a rushed after work thing in the night...

also, i may be getting used to my job or simply stepping back into some long-time bad habits...

but i wouldn't have snacked on 320 calories last night at 8pm if i knew i were sleeping soon, the snack would have been less...it was because i told myself i was going to study (but i did snack, but never studied).

i figure i'll just study while on the go - during public transportaion to/from work and do the note-taking on weekends at home...

i think i did have the problem during paralegal, but it wasn't apparent as i took days off to do the work or did it on weekends, not in the work night evenings ;)...so if i snacked, it was built into the day - and not snacks in the evening after i've used up most calories...


bearcountrygg on 05/18/2021:
Maybe you are having cramps because you are dehydrated...coffee dehydrates.

horn_of_plenty on 05/18/2021:
yes, i am SURE that also has to do with it, also the kombucha in evenings...may need to lay off....

you have a point, i usually only like to drink coffee in AM so i'm not peeing out water too....i will see, right thigh is bad lately...

maybe i should both drink more today and have another banana before i go home...

Horn_of_plenty on 05/18/2021:
after drinking more water this afternoon...and taking some pain meds, i feel better tonight :)

How many days do you have to call in to see if you have jury duty?

I'm glad you posted ahead about Memorial Day. I swear, with everything going on, I completely forgot.

Here's a hint - if you're studying from your notebook or Ipad, have other work-related paperwork around you, and something work related on your work-computer screen.

Hope you have a great day!

horn_of_plenty on 05/17/2021:
i think they will have me call in for a week at most to see if i need to come in. i'm pretty positive there'll be one day i have to go in this week, but we shall see the real outcome soon enough!

Yes, super excited for the long weekend of Memorial Day Weekend over here, too. I will prob just do work, i have a volunteering event at the farm which will give me some good exercise, too. Catch up on phone with French friend if she's available.

Yes, i'll take your advice re the studying at work, at least keep other paperwork out / screeen on laptop with a log open.

i'm getting them cheaper than community college...on Straighterline.com

I think that's a wonderful idea about having a notebook to study from, especially if you are slow at work and to review during your commute sometimes.

horn_of_plenty on 05/17/2021:
yes - bringing notebook back and forth...need to read over notes many times to memorize and make sense of them.


Donkey on 05/16/2021:
PS good job on the calories!

horn_of_plenty on 05/17/2021:
Thank you, yes, i have to keep it down or i'll eventually gain weight if i keep them at the upper limits ;)

thank you.

it was a nice visit with cousin, with friend she is so negative.

Monday, June 28th: Business Law, last Adv Paralegal Course Begins, 6 weeks in length - to get the "real advanced paralegal degree" it's 6 specializations. but i'm good with the 3 i took, i will have paperwork from the school in the form of an email showing my grade and that i took the classes. then, i'm moving on to pursue other studies that will help me both now and in the future, outside of legal studies.

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

Sounds like a really nice, "nothing" day - and that's OK! How are you liking the accounting class so far?

I think you and Jacky might have hit on something there with having a banana as a night-time "treat".

Horn_of_plenty on 05/15/2021:
yes, bananas help me lots before bed and in middle of the night..

yes, hoping to have several "nothing, home days" while taking classes. :) is so nice to be home, not rushing around.

Horn_of_plenty on 05/15/2021:
Yes, but once in awhile only :)

Love my stationary bikes! Had at least one for decades. Now use a recumbent and the spinner. Mostly the recumbent. Hop on first thing in morning to read the newspapers n my iPad. Off and on all day.

Horn_of_plenty on 05/15/2021:
yes, mine is recumbent too! i love it, very comfortable!


Donkey on 05/16/2021:
Hope you had a pleasant evening!

Horn_of_plenty on 05/16/2021:
