I still have a cough, but am feeling even better than I did yesterday, which is good. I hope to be back to normal by the end of the week. School was rough today. During American Fiction, there was drilling and machinery going during class, and we could hardly hear the professor (who by the way is one of the worst teachers I have ever had). Finally, this girl spoke up and said, "I hate to be rude, but this (the noise from the construction) is a little ridiculous." The prof. then dismissed us 10 minutes early, and no one left very happy, because the teacher is boring, and continues to do NOTHING about the noise of construction in the classroom. I mean, it's so bad we can't even hear the professor. I just read and do other things, because I can't even hear him over the noise.

Then, it was off to Art History. I turned in my huge paper I worked all day Sunday on, and then listened to the lecture on New Kingdom Egyptian art. It's a little more interesting than Paleolithic Art.

Things at work are very tumultuous right now. Barbara refused to let Susan come back, and now Jeanne is (regretably) our new manager. A lot of people are very upset about it, but there is nothing that we can do. Those that spoke their mind at the meeting were reemed for doing so, and those that didn't speak up at the meeting should have. I wasn't at the meeting on Friday, because no one let me know there WAS a meeting. I was very pissed I couldn't be there, because I would have said that which is on my mind. This situation was very poorly handled, and they will pay the consequences for their poor decision making. This hospital (I can not divulge where I work online) is going to lose a lot of good employees, and they definitely have already lost a lot of employees' respect and pride in the organization for which they work. It is a shame that people in leadership in organizations such as this one can simply make decisions to the detriment of those beneath them without thinking about ANYONE but themselves and their unjust motivations. It is a real shame.

Well, I'm going to make some chicken noodle soup for lunch, then I'm off to work. I must read half of The Blithedale Romance this evening, so the day is really not even halfway over yet, even though it is nearly 3pm. To get me halfway through this 19th century novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne, I will need to read 160 pages, and won't be able to start doing this until 9pm this evening when I get off of work.

Ciao,
Karli
