I woke up yesterday and waited for Jerry to come. I could give you the long story but I won't bore you with the details unless you ask. Basically, at about 7:25 on the 15th of September, Jerry called me up and said, in a number of words, that he quit for various reasons. I had no idea what to tell him except for
Can we work this out?" I kept thinking to myself "What am I going to do? How am I going to get to class There was no convincing at that point so I called my mom and told her the situation as I shook from unknowning and disbelief. THe only reason why I am up here is because I have some help as the university feels it is not their responsibility to help me, another story. My mom forced Jerry's number out of me and called him, and told him basicaly that as an assistant you can't just leave jobs like they're regular welding jobs. "You're dealing with a person, not a piece of metal." (He was once a welder). She also talked about how I would probably be heading back to Little Rock if something could not be figured out.
So, I ended up calling some people and organizing financial issues with the bank. Basically I had to find a way to get cash to Jerry and get it to him so that he could feel like he wasn't working with me for nothing. So that done and organized, I called him back. I'm here in Fayetteville still so you probably guessed that Jerry unquit himself and sayd he'll be here today to help with Laundry and pick up his money.
There's a whole lot more below the surface which I can't relate here but maybe later and under wraps. I'm just thankful that I still have someone, and that I'll be able to continue going to class.
I've been trying to figure out things to break my stresses up and make life more manageable, so I was really excited when my sister called to tell me that she was going to be in town to visit friends and would I like to go to dinner with her or something. Not only did I get some tasty dinner (and an extra meal for lunch today I might add), but I'm a lot stronger muscularly because of it. The parking lots behind the Quads are a bit of a walk, and I ended up doing that walk four times while my sister's been here. She told my Mom that I was getting "buff" now, and I might agree, my arms at least. I suppose doing 90 point reps, at least about 400 a day will do tha to you. We ended up going to The Taste of Thai, and I got yellow curry to eat there and gren curry to go, And it was oh so tasty for sure.
Tonight's poker night at Larry's, and I'm sure that'll give me some escape from reality for a while. That and bitching about university issues will definitely be good. Suppose I should go though, make lunch though its early, and get ready to continue studying. Hope everyone's cool, calm, and collected.
I hope my day today will be better than the last three, wow!
