HiI think I sent you e-mail....maybe someone else will see this too? As far as I know there are no "real" support groups..but a few of us who e-mail now and again a while back. I've pretty much given up trying to organize anything so if someone else wants to please post here!Jane
Hi! I just posted on this in the "meeting place"...oops! Guess I ought to look around better.
I lost everyone's e-mail addresses....guess I "spring-cleaned" a little too well in my e-mail system. Sorry! I would also like to get together sometime...but can't put any effort into it until i graduate in December.
Please feel free to e-mail me anytime at tiggster78###yahoo.com
Hey everyone,I do belong to Kaiser, I had no idea that they had any type of group in Roseville. But I'm leaving Kaiser in the end of December, so I guess it is a bit too late for that. It looks like there are enough of us here to have some kind of group though. . .but I'm with Tiggster. . .can't do anything until finals are over in mid-Dec. How lucky are you that you are graduating!! I'm jealous. . .I still have another year and a half until I am done with school completely. But anyone who wants to can feel free to email me too. . .kjapple###pacbell.net Hey, was anyone else disappointed with the weather today? I was expecting this big cool storm all day, and when I woke up the SUN was out, and I have yet to see any rain or big wind. What was up with all the hype, dammit! I want the storm!Kris
OK, so apparently you can all disregard my weather comment. . .I was just watching the news, and apparently there WAS a big storm, but I guess I missed it! I must be a pretty deep sleeper! But now that I think about it, my power DID go off at least twice in the night last night. OK, so nevermind!
Kristoffer...where do you go to school? What's your major?As for the storm...I was hoping it would hold out until at least the afternoon, I was supposed to take some of the shelter dogs (along with other people) to the Santa Parade downtown....sounded like fun!...then it was cancelled!
Hey Tiggster,I have actually already finished my undergrad. . .I went to UC Irvine. But now I am in law school. . .I go to McGeorge School of Law here in Sac. How about you? Do you go to Sac State? That sucks that you didn't get to do the parade thing. . .that would have been fun! Well, good luck with your studying. . .that is what I'll be doing ALL day! See ya. . .Kris
Thanks for the info about Kaiser. I'm actually very close to Roseville so I might look into that. I thought we were supposed to have rain all the time until Tuesday? I only saw it Friday night/Sat early morning. I love the rain and know we need it, but man, until my landlords fix the pipes outside my bedroom window, it's going to drive me nuts. They work and all, but the way they were designed makes them REALLY loud. Ugh. Wakes me up every time. Not looking forward to the rain we're supposed to have tonight as tomorrow it is back to work. Hope everyone's holiday weekend went well!
I second the cold thing. . .it is FREEZING here! OK, maybe we are all just a bunch of whimps here in Northern CA when it comes to cold, sure, but it is pretty cold.Tiggster, I've been slacking too. . .this is called my make-up studying time! I try to teach myself the whole course in the week or so leading up to finals. Not too smart of us, eh? Oh well. . .you'll be done soon! Do they have a graduation ceremony for people who graduate in December, or do you have to wait until summer?Kris
brrr....I hope none of the canadians or mid-westerners see this thread..we are surely weather wimps its not even below freezing! I wasn't a wimp until I moved here!I'm not with Kaiser either.That's great tiggster..you're graduating!..woohooo...
Hi!It sure is chilly out today but, at least, it is sunny. The freezing tootsies help balance out the hot flashes, I guess. I graduated from college back in the 'good old days." I really enjoyed it, but it was sure hard to get motivated studying some of the dull stuff. Got my degree in American Studies with a minor in Music back when San Francisco State was still officially called San Francisco State. Good luck, youngsters! Finals weren't fun then, either. I remember the last-minute cramming. My brain hurts just thinking about it.We Sacramentans are a chatty bunch. I like that.Talk to you soon.Renee'
Thanks for the wish of luck Renee'! You know, I've always had trouble studying the stuff that bores me, but is "required" to get one degree or another. I thought that once I got to graduate school, working towards a very specific degree that I was really interested in, those classes wouldn't exist any more. Boy was I wrong! I have spent a year and a half now studying #### that I really don't care about! I want to go into criminal law. . .but here I am stuck studying about corporations and wills and contracts and property.
Boring! OK, I'm just complaining now, and using this post to keep myself away from the books! Hope everyone is staying warm! See ya. . .Kris
Thanks for all the congrats! Amazingly I still have some hard stuff ahead in those classes, I thought with only two classes left I would be able to just sit back and watch the world go by in regards to school...I was SO WRONG!Kris...I put off grad. school because of that reason...I am just so bored with it all. I'm tired of jumping through their stupid hoops. (gosh, negativity galore here). But I'm queen of the distraction mechanisms as well.
Hope everyone had/has a good day...I didn't want to get up this morning! Dark AND cold.
Tiggster. . .I hear ya. . .looking back now, I definitely wish I had taken some time off after graduating before going to law school. . .at least a year. The problem was, I had a huge fear that I would take a year off, get really comfortable, and not want to go back! So I just went for it. . .and now I'm way too far into it and too close to being DONE to take time off. Oh well. . .I think that ultimately I made the right decision, but who knows? I hear ya about getting up this morning! Today is my early day (work in the morning, then class) so it was dark when I got up too, and COLD! How hard is it to get out of bed with that combo?? Sheesh!And might I suggest that we all just take a moment to send some positive thoughts out to our Kings??? Bad day yesterday. . .today wasn't great either, but at least we won. Let's hope they can take a deep breath and relax on their day off and finish off the week with some big time ass kicking!!
Kris, I think you made a good decision going right into law school. After graduating with my BA, I thought about getting my masters and PhD right away but decided to work first instead (which most business schools want you to do first anyway). But it's so hard to think about going back to school now that I've been out of it for a few years. I do eventually want to teach at a college level, so I'm going to have to go back at some point. Ugh, I hate thinking about it. And I just don't know when I'd do it. I just got fairly settled into my job. I'll root for the Kings if you promise to root for the Raiders! (although I am one of those odd ducks that likes both the 49er's and the Raiders).
