LBJ - Why is it you feel abandoned? If that's me butting my nose in where it doesn't belong feel free to ignore me.

Now, this will sound lame I'm sure, but I always try not to think of anything as a mistake per se. I think everything you do in life eventually leads you to where you need to be or gives you something you wouldn't have otherwise had, whether you see it at the time or not. So maybe graduate school is just a stepping stone to taking yourself somewhere else!

ravishingRabbit: Your bunnies are so beautiful! All bunnies are of course, but yours are stunning. Is Benji a Harlequin? Forgive my ignorance

Hazel - Thanks! I'll let them know you think so!  Though their ego's are already fairly large from me telling them how cute they are all the time, haha. Benji is a tri colored mini rex actually!  The breeder I got him from specialized in the tri-color variety of mini rex's. All of his siblings were much more white with fewer speckles, so I just instantly fell in love with Benji the second I saw him. But I mean this is what he looked like the day I got him so there was no way one couldn't fall in love with him!

Photobucket 

He was so small and considered the runt of his litter. I love his coloring, especially now that he's a bit older and the color has gotten richer he either reminds me of Lassie with his white paws or sometimes he reminds me of a tiger when he's lying down because his black spots on the sides practically look like strips going onto a white belly, haha.

Well if you ever get sick of his rich coloring and overwhelming cuteness, I'll take him off your hands!

You're not being nosy. I've talked about this one here before, but if you haven't been around much then you might not know. So don't worry. It is hard not to feel abandoned when you get dumped as a TA and then your adviser basically says they don't want to be your adviser anymore. I guess graduate school itself may not have been a mistake, but graduate school at this particular location was definitely a mistake. I can't do much about it now though. I am all but thesis right now, there is no choice but to move forward.

 

Your bunnies are adorable by the way. I love the coloring.

Haha, I swear, sometimes he does stuff that's just so overwhelmingly cute my head just about explodes from it. I'll make you a deal, if you're ever in Illinois you may come visit and have your head explode too, haha.

LBJ - It's your advisers loss then! Maybe that's not a particularly helpful comment but you seem nice and ambitious so I'm certain that it's true. There are other advisers out there so maybe you'll find someone even better. Think of it this way, in the grand scheme of things, going to that specific location and this part of your life is only one small fraction of your life overall.

As I said, I think you'll get to where you need to be eventually.

And thanks! I think the coloring of my bunnies is gorgeous as well, especially Benji.  Speaking of, he recently arrived home after a long day at the vets, his neutering went very well and he's already eaten a bit and pooped so I'm excited! (..really never thought my life would come down to being excited about a rabbit pooping but there it is!)

Smudge is fine, she bounced back just a few hours after I posted about it... silly girl. I did give her simethicone and a tummy rub, so it was probably gas or something making her not eat. I slept on the floor with her that night, and she woke me up with binkies all over me lol.

 

 

Excellent news..... Was just about to add to the thread and ask how Smudge was doing.

Randomly going to hop into the conversation, mainly because that's just the most parsley I've ever seen! I keep imagining bunny's diving into it...though frankly mine would likely just make a hole in the side of the bag, tunnel in and then you'd just be able to slowly watch the parsley disappear into the bag, haha.

Hi Ravishing, My little blighters are divers... Pipi has nailed the perfect belly flop from a perch on the day bed 4 feet away square in the middle of the bag of stale hay, paper and poop. It's like a mission for them. Pepper does laps till she builds up speed and can get a clear flying leap at the bag. It would be thoroughly disgusting if it wasn't soo cute.

A long and very trying few days... Can't really post this anywhere else due to confidentiality but need to vent and get some vibes. Had to do a summary dismissal on a staff member that has been with the company for several years. It was bad, but she had put herself in an untenable position. Even then management was ready to offer her a lifeline due to her service but she put them in a position where they had no other option. Due to our interaction I had to absent myself from the meetings (which I thought was a good idea) and I insisted my male counterpart be present. These things are touchy and you have to have witnesses. Part of my job is to guide the owners through these minefields and I've had to write a lot of these letters but this one was hard. I liked the woman and whilst we weren't close friends we got on well. It has been very hard as I cannot even contact her, worse, I may have to give evidence. This is one of those days my job is not so great. Going to put my OHS, IR and HR caps away in a dark closet for the weekend and try to do some happy things.

RavishingRabbit -- Oh god. They are ALL absolutely gorgeous! I'm so jealous. They are pure beauties! And I completely agree with what you said to LBJ.

LBJ -- I'm trying for Accounting. But starting completely over. I can't get my transcripts from my other school because I owe them $4,000 so I'm starting over completely from scratch at a community college in Pittsburgh. Going for my Associates in Accounting and then **HOPEFULLY** transfering to another school here for my Bachelors in Accounting also. Hopefully. It feels so hopeless having to start over from scratch but I guess I don't really have a choice since I have no way to pay the $4,000 right now. It will take me longer to pay that off then it will be for me to just finish school, LOL. BLEH.

Roberta, that sounds stressful. Sending lots of destressing vibes your way! <3

Also, glad to her Benji is doing well!

Is anyone else going to see the new Bond movie, Skyfall?? I'm so excited to see it this weekend! I've only seen Casino Royale but LOVED it (my boyfriend made me watch it this past weekend so I'd understand more about this coming one!).

I think my bun buns are getting out of their bratty teenage stages! YAAAAAAAYYYYYY. Both the boyfriend and I have noticed that they are starting to take a lot more floppy breaks in between running around like crazy chickens with their heads cut off. They still act like crazy rabbits but definitely a LOT more breaks. Ohhhh, it's so refreshing compared to their bratty baby bunny 'tudes! AND it's so nice because they love to flop right down next to us! Still don't stay down longer than a couple minutes but those couple minutes do a lot when you're used to not even a minute of solitude with them!

I am crossing my fingers that Chacha gets a clean bill of health this coming Wednesday. She is only getting irritated with her right ear when I administer the drops. Otherwise, she cleans herself thoroughly after I put her back on the carpet. She is cleaning the human cooties off of her, LOL! If she gets a clean bill of health, mommy is going to go birthday shopping for her Her birthday will be on 11/24, which is a Saturday. Also, my photographer friend agreed to do a Chacha photo shoot with me next Thursday if the bunny is feeling fine. I haven't had one done since early 2011 so I think it is time. The photos always turn out great and the photos will be a reminder of how much she means to me.

My neck has been hurting me when I wake up in the morning, which means it is a sign that I need to get a new pillow! Gah!

Yesterday I did something I've wanted to for ages... I walked in and told my boss what I thought of the place and resigned.

Bit of a back story, I started the job as a casual shelf stacker in June last year, the people who hired me gave me the impression that I would be able to multi-skill and work in other departments. Well that never happened and in February and March this year they put my hours back to once a week, then once a month and last shift I had there was the middle of June... nothing since.

Talking to the boss apparently it's not my fault and 'restructuring' is why I never got any work... but they hired 2 new casual night fillers and gave them shifts (probably cause they're related or best friends of the management), I also said that the anti discrimination laws seem to be a joke there as both my fellow workers and those higher up make snide remarks and comments about the openly gay manager there, the boss told me 'he doesn't mind, in fact he gives as good as he gets', I told him I don't care, I have family and friends who are gay and I find it offensive. Also suffering depression and having my hours cut to nothing has not helped my depression and right now I'm in a big rut and I know that if I went in and worked and a worker made a snide remark about anything I'd snap and probably get my self fired, so I left on my terms.

I really want to get my head together before I even start looking for a new job.

Yesterday though I did have a smile, I decided to lie down next to the girls' crate and little Thee sniffed me before hopping over and had a hop around on my belly before going back into the crate, Seph wasn't quite sure but came over to the crate door and sniffed at me. It was so adorable!

Roberta - Ha! Your bunnies sound hilarious! I'm sorry about the stressful time at work though, that sounds awful. I hope things settle down for you.

Tanlover - Thanks for the bunny compliment! And I'm glad Benji is doing better as well. He seems practically like his old self today already, hopping around his area faster than I'd like him to, haha. He's not eating as much hay as I'd like but he's eating some and has been munching on his greens and pellets on and off throughout the day so at least it's something.

I'll be going to see the new Skyfall movie either later today or tomorrow actually! I can't wait, I'm sooo excited. I loved the other ones!

Lovechacha - I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for Chacha on Wednesday!

Toady - Kudos to you for quitting! That sounds like a crappy place anyways so you're better off without it, and I can't stand people who discriminate like that so I would've hated being around that too if it were me. I'm sorry about the depression, I used to suffer from that for years myself actually when I was younger. I realize we don't know each other but if you ever need someone to talk to feel free to send me a message. I think quitting a job like that though is definitely a step in the right direction if it was making things worse for you and it's always good to prioritize yourself, your health should come first! Your Thee reminds me of Abigail, when me or my boyfriend lies down on the floor she always climb up on us, haha. Alternatively if either of us hunch down on our elbows and knees she jumps up on our backs, she's so silly. She reminds me of what lion tamers do with the jumping up on our backs like that, haha.

Agh! This is not a good day. Seems like I don't have any good days anymore.

I got another nasty email from my adviser. He says he is ready to resign as my adviser and basically threatened me. I just can't deal with this right now. I am so busy for the next 10 days and he keeps saying he is available at times I am not. I don't understand what the urgency is.

jeepers! i miss a couple days and look at what i miss! whew!

gotta say, OMG BENJI IS DROOLWORTHY! what a hunk! (of course Abigail and Rorscach are beauties too but wowza) glad his surgery went well.

Hippy went in on weds for his pre-op and omg was he mad at me after. Kicked the vet in the chest a few times and thumped for a good 5mins after he was done being examined then gave himself a good long washing after flipping his "paws" a few times against the carrier. he is now back to normal and running bunny 500s in the kitchen whlle the kids chase him. (its a new game they play, Mags will let him out of the pen and he does zoomies..they chase. they stop,flop and he does binkys or headbuts until they go again.) He also got his first taste of willow and LOVED it..and he got a new ball for bing so evil to the vet, his first jingle bell ball which he picks up and throws for about 15mins evry few hours..ahh i love my buns.. cant wait to get another once he is healed from neutering, goes in on the 27th..Im SO nervous..any advice?

Aww, I would definitely love to squeeze those bunnies. They are such cuties. Not that mine aren't adorable. I hope things work themselves out. I just didn't like the tone of the email. It was rather confrontational. I have been given an ultimatum and I don't feel as though it is deserved. I've been going through a rough time lately. I couldn't even think about my thesis, so I didn't see any reason to keep updating him with nothing every month. It isn't like I never communicated with him at all though, just not every month.

tanlover - Accounting, eh? You must be good at math. It is good that you want to get a bachelors, I hear it is difficult to find a decent job with an associates in accounting. Are you able to get financial aid then?
