My Hands

Posted June 11, 2016 By kmarrs

You may have noticed I’ve switched to video blogging, or vlogging. This doesn’t mean I won’t still write sometimes, but I’m losing my hands and wrists to the fibro. Actually, I think it’s carpal tunnel, but my fibro certainly doesn’t help. I’m noticing more and more that it doesn’t take much typing before the pain sets in. So I like to try and save my typing for work and school.

Besides, I think my therapy with fish series is kind of fun. I promise I talk about more than just fish. I talk about life, while watching a fish tank. It’s actually really relaxing and I can just talk. I’m a lot less apt to censor myself since I don’t want to start the whole video over. I don’t do any video editing. So it’s full me uncensored. So yes, I recommend watching the videos.

I’m also about to start a DBT series. It starts out rough, but I hope to liven it up some as I go. I just need to shake my jitters out and get used to reading on video. Anyway, this series might prove helpful, maybe. Maybe not. I’m doing it anyway.

Meet Spike

Posted May 24, 2016 By kmarrs

Spike is a very young, very small, Sunburst Platy.

 

And here we have Snailburt. Snailburt has hundreds of family members all living in my 20 gallon, eating my plants. I’m not overly fond of Snailburt and co. I mean, they also eat algae but in my 20 they seem to much prefer the plants because they are dying and the algae is out of control. Anyway, Snailburt.  I just love watching his little mouth work.  When my plants aren’t involved, that is.

One of Hers

Posted March 16, 2016 By kmarrs

I work in an office building with a few dozen professors and a dean.  Only two of these people have anything to do with math.  I’m surrounded by different department heads and it makes for an interesting atmosphere.  It’s been established, in fact, that life in that office in no way represents real life.  Also, yes your professor may be brilliant in their field, but that doesn’t always translate to other things.

Case in point:

I was asked today to do some research on how I could make a poster in PowerPoint. *blink blink*
A 5 minute conversation later I did confirm it doesn’t actually have to be made in PowerPoint, she’s going to print it anyway, and why yes I can build it for her on my laptop that has Photoshop.
The woman is brilliant in math but lord help me she’s lucky she has me for the rest.

So anyway.

I’m surrounded by many professors for many fields of study.  And quite a few of these professors are jealous of my boss because she has me, and no one else really has a me.  (They could apply for a me, but apparently they never really considered that option.)

So the other day my boss, Dr. L, went to a meeting and in this meeting another professor made a silly/snide comment about how she has a work-study and no one else does.  She let it go, and the meeting continued.

A few days later they were in a conversation, the two of them, when she reflected back on what he said.

“Wait a minute.  Wait a minute!  We’ll get back to the topic on hand but I need to crush you first.  Not only do I have a work-study, but she’s one of yours!”

“… One of mine?…”

“Yes, one of yours.”

“Applied Psychology?”

“Yep!”

“But… But… Mine don’t usually even like math!”

“Well this one does!”

“She could be doing research!”

“You’re right, and she might!” (Implying I might be doing research in the field of mathematics.)

“That’s not even fair!”

Bwahahahaha

*cough*

Ha!

I love my job.  I love my boss.  And then I finish my BSs (plural) and continue on to my MS, I might switch and work for the Applied Psychology guy.

But for now, I’m content making posters (not in PowerPoint though) for Dr. L.
