Can I just say that I hate the Financial Aid Department? It was the same way when I was at ol’ S-Dub as well. I got an email from SHSU saying that they don’t have me listed as Accepted into the Graduate School and I need to send a copy of my acceptance letter. If I have my acceptance letter, then shouldn’t they have it in their computer systems and isn’t that THEIR error?? ARGH! I called the Graduate Office then the Financial Aid office and low and behold, it was their error and I don’t have to send in a copy of the acceptance letter. I can see how fun dealing with Financial Aid will be from here on out. Somethings just don’t change.
As a note on packing things up – if you’re moving out of your office, the desk should probably be one of the last things you pack up. I’ve packed up my desk (it felt like the right next thing to do) and now I need things that were in it and now are in the bottom of the box. I’m finding myself going to Brian’s office to borrow scissors and such. Oh well….
I got a new camera!! I know, I should be saving that money for deposits and moving to Huntsville but it was really a deal I couldn’t pass up. It’s a Canon EOS Rebel XS with Case Logic backpack. I won’t say how much I paid but I feel a little guilty paying as little as I did. I hope to do the previous owner good by taking lots of great pics and posting them regularly. Now to get a book on photography and actually read it. 😉 I think this will be a good alternative, creative outlet while I go through graduate school. Don’t you??
I’m feeling a bit discombobluated today. I’m not sure why. Almost as though I’ve had too much coffee or something. But I can’t imagine coffee is the culprit since I only had one cup (as normal). Maybe it’s just all the chaos around here, trying to wrap up the year and with all my packing chaos.
I’m also bothered because I’m at a loss of what to pack next. I’m down to knick-knacks and my filing cabinet. There are a lot of knick-knacks and some of it I can dispose but others, I have to sort through since they’ve been given to me by the kids. I think my #1 thing is to move out anything that belongs to the band program so I can really see what is mine to pack. But where to do I put all that stuff???
Okay, I need to get to it. 2 more days of school, graduation on Saturday, Brad comes on Friday night to get his stuff and visit (I’m not sure how long he’ll be here, either), and my last contract day is June 1. The SPHS Band Boosters are having a reception for me on Wednesday, June 1 from 6-8 pm in the band hall. How nice is that??
