I'm always last

OK, I was like the last person on the planet to join myspace, I never did sign up for facebook, and now, with equal procrastination, I'm on Twitter. Feel free to follow me. I know my WWC has been late being posted for nearly eternity now, I'm sorry, I'm such a bad blog girl. I've got to keep up with school, first and foremost though, and that is proving to be a task of increasing difficulty as time rolls in bringing with it, complacency and a touch of apathy. I went through this when I went for my nursing degree, it seems to hit at about the halfway mark, I don't know why. I'm really only at the 1/3 mark, but here it comes. I need to motivate myself with a quickness to head this off. I really don't want to loose focus...

In better news:
I was at my desk, work, work working away when my phone rang. I noticed that the caller ID showed an in-house phone number, and thought, hmmmm...whose calling me? When I answered, it was my boss, saying " Um...the 2nd Quarter Awards Ceremony is about to begin downstairs and your presence is requested, ma'am"
I was feeling a bit embarrassed that I had forgotten to set a calendar reminder on my Outlook, and apologized and hurried on down to the conference room. I hate to enter a room last, because then everyone turns to look at who is coming in late. I hate having all eyes on me. So anyfiddle, I walk in, sit down and BAM!! I'm being handed an award! I got Specialist of the 2nd Quarter Award! Woo Hoo!
Great, give the new girl the award and piss off all the people who've been there for years. LOL Oh well.
My WWC will be posted later...check back!

Whoo Hoo! I know your work ethic! Anyone who holds down a full time job and is going to school at the same time deserves credit! And then, you win an award on top of it all. Congrats!!!
