Yesterday I contacted the college about a charge I had to my account for 159.00$ that shouldn't have been there. They gave me the run around and were generally rather rude to me but I persisted and won the battle, having the charge removed as it shouldn't have been there to begin with. I felt rather empowered after that.
I've been looking into online classes as I can't make it up to the campus in my current condition. Unfortunately, I have to go up at least once to speak with a counselor about what classes I still need to take towards my degree. I feel like such a loser, I don't even have my AA. I know, I know. I can't help the circumstances that made it so I had to drop out...but still.
I'm also thinking about changing my major from Psychology (not that it isn't interesting) to English. Mainly because I think it would help my writing skill become more refined and thus my book would be better written, which is very important to me. Shoddily written books are a huge pet peeve. I'm not sure what options I'll have available to me but that's why I go see the adviser, so hopefully they can steer me in the right direction. I'm also hoping that the majority of the classes I have left will be online so I can actually complete them.The college is severely lacking in online classes.
Pain levels today are low to moderate although I'm having a lot of spasms from simple things, like laughing. I'm pretty sure the chronic pain will get worse, as it usually does as the day goes on.
I'm hoping maybe today my friend and current caregiver, Ashley, will be up for helping me make something extra tasty for dinner. I don't eat much anymore but I'm tired of simple meals. I miss being in the kitchen making delicious, more complex foods. I'd really love to make some more Xiao Long Bao but I know I'm not up for that, haha. Perhaps some Zuppa Toscana, it's been cold and rainy so soup sounds especially good. Either that or some Fettuccine Alfredo, mm..pasta.
