Doctor Who: 10 - blue smirk look

(no subject)

I think in the 8 hours I've been at work I got to sit down for like 2 minutes wihtout doing much of anything.. rest of the time it was shelving, shelf checking, showing patrons how to use the catalogue/databases, running to the photocopy room to fetch photocopies, dealing with grumpy patrons, dealing with stupid patrons. ('but I wanna buy this book' 'you can't, we dont' sell  books here' 'but I wanna buy this book, the teacher said we have to buy it' 'yes upstairs in the bookshop' 'nonono he said here in the library' *headdesk*) way too many people who hold out their books to check out at the same time! I kinda went "hang on! one at a time, allright? I'm only one person" I can only multitask so much, geez... but nope.. you get like three people all reaching out with their IDs and materials to check out AT THE SAME TIME! and if you take one person's stuff, the other two give you dirty/irritating looks... you can't win! And the number of times I had to tell people to take their phones and discussions outside of the library... this isn't a lounge room people!

I spent the day on a cup of youghurt,  2 cups of coffee and 2 cans of Dr. Pepper basically... (yah still can't stomach solid food as I found out early in the morning...)

Came home a wee bit sore...wrists especially... but then considering i've been working without any big breaks in between, yeah... go figure...This Deep Freeze spray I got is quite handy though. albei i think i have to dip my hands in that stuff at this stage... X_x

Stomach might be calming down a wee bit. Eaten some fish with potatoes today, and that was allright, aside a slighly sick feeling to my stomach for a bit, but at least it stayed in.

Parents had a fight... Dad got peeved at Darky for doing squat around the house when he asked Darky to. mom got peeved at Dad for being impatient and gettign peeved with Darky... X_x wasn't a pretty fight....I swear these people fight over the smallest things sometimes, at least it's not as bad as before though. I almost felt like grabbing my keys and just going for a drive somewhere until they calmed down. But instead just ended up going to my room, shutting the door and digging out my HCI assignment.

Started on my HCI report that's due in week seven, near the middle of November (mid-November is also when I start my CELTA course, so it's best I get this stuff outta the way before things with CELTA start)  I've already got the major bits worked out in the report, it's just tweaking and adding on info from the stuff we get taught in the lectures, although I've read most of the book (rather skim-read ^.^ just to get the basic idea about HCI) I'm sure the stuff I have so far will be changed around, fiddled with and re-written ten times over in the next few weeks, but at least it's a start of things.

Been thinking of changing my LJ layout, the one I'm using's... not that personal.. I want to personalize things a wee bit. decisions decisions.. augh....
