succumbing to peer pressure

Thursday, June 09, 2005

I suppose it could be worse. My quals could be oral.

So true.

FYI - finally heard back from health services and Sid is totally right (see comments) - everything is fine, and turns out I don't even have to pay the bill (my insurance denied the claim by mistake, it's been re-submitted, and supposedly will clear this time). Nevertheless, that was a crappy thing to do to a person for 48 hours.

Meanwhile, 25 hours from now the big scary exam will be over, for better or worse, thank goodness. I knew I was stressed out, but I thought I was dealing ok, but my body keeps indicating in not-so-fun ways that I'm actually pretty freaked out. For the sake of my sanity, I'm glad this is almost over. Psychosomatic symptoms suck.

Fuck. As if I needed something else to stress out about. I went in for my annual check-up in January and everything, supposedly, was normal. Well, I just got what looks like a bill in the mail and it says "Limited Service - New Problem Thin Prep/Pap." What the fuck does that mean?! And why is this arriving 5 months later?!

I ran in to two of my (former) students yesterday and after telling them about my upcoming exam one said, "Can't they just read your course evaluations and see that you're awesome?" Aw. Love my students.

So I totally freaked out today. Let's hope I've gotten that out of my system.
