Sounds like things are getting better. Meanwhile in Kioland:

American Airlines Hates Everyone:

I fly. I fly a lot for someone who doesn't need to fly. Next month I have a total of six flights (counting each leg) spread across three airlines and nearly all of my mileage is connected to American, so I had to call two of the airlines (one was able to correct two of the three) and American, in order to make sure my secure flight information has been updated to female. Here's how the process went:

Delta: "Oh, your passport says F? Changed."

US Airways (just bought by American): "Oh, your passport says F? Changed."

American: "But you said your name is MALENAME?" "Yes." "Is this your account?" "Yes." "So wait, you need to change your gender?" "Yes. My gender is female, I realise that my name is generally considered a *male* name, but my passport has an F on it." "So, the F is right?" "YES. Please change it!" "Oh... Okay.... Changed." And text doesn't do the bored confusion and inability to process WOMAN WITH A MALE NAME justice. Even as she changed it, I could totally hear the "what the fuck does this even mean" oozing out of her voice.

Gah. I flew US Airways last year as well, and they treated me really well. If AA fucks it up, oooh, I will be so pissed.

Caught a pretty nasty cold last weekend and it hurts to breathe or even move around.

I ended going to 3 job interviews this week in my condition and was really able to hide my sickness pretty well... only to gag and puke as soon as I got home from them...

My family wasn't thrilled with me either, and we got into several heated discussions.

But a lot of good things happened out of all of that.

I got a new job as a Financial Analyst for a farming corporation (not so much accounting, but there's a lot of accounting involved in that), and I LOVE IT. My job is analyzing how well farmers are doing, and let them know how they can improve, as well as working A/P. I love my coworkers, my supervisor is a goddess, and I'm making more money than I was in public accounting AND work less hours. I also have medical insurance, paid vacation days, and paid holidays. In short, EVERYTHING I didn't have in my last job. :3

Came out to my grandparents, who didn't give a fuck. Nobody else, but hey, it's a start. :3

So in short, I'm happier now than I've ever been in my life, it just took three months of absolute shit to get there. :up:

Feeling a bit bummed lately... been thinking about people who've passed on and really wish we could go a year without hearing bad news. Perhaps, though, I'm coming up on about 10 years since I last talked to my father. Can't really remember the last thing we talked about or the last thing he said to me. Only thing I remember about that time was, he was taking computer classes to learn how to use a computer. I found it quite an amusing thought at the time and still do. So I guess that's a good thing to remember.

So some people already know that I have some serious spinal nerve problems, particularly in my hip. (Yes, old lady with hip problems, harhar XD). I've been managing it for the past few months but it's gotten worse, so much so that both standing and sitting make it hurt. Though I've had both x-rays and MRIs of my lower back, I still don't know what's wrong, but my doctor finally prescribed a medication to deal with nerve pain/inflammation for a few months while I go to physical therapy. While I am feeling better in that area, everything else is awful. Just awful. I can't sleep for more than four hours because I get 'hot flashes', (mind you it's 4 degrees outside...). My muscles are, at their worst, getting charley horses at the worst possible time, usually during work. I've gained seven pounds of fluid in five days; my hands were so swollen today it was hard to work with slides and microscopes. This medicine is also an immune suppressant, so I'm avoiding anyone and anything that looks like it might cough on me. To top it off, I can't even get online for more than a half hour without getting motion sick, so I can't talk to anyone no matter how much I want to get on skype. I can't edit or even paint to relax. Luckily this is my last day on this stuff, but it's going to take a week for the side-effects to subside, (at least, I hope it only takes that long). While I'm happy my pain will be gone and, subsequently, I won't have to rely on painkillers to get me through the day, I'll be glad when this is flushed out of my system. :x

Winter suck this year. I guess for almost everyone in Cananda in the US. Propane is too expensive, it's cold and I'm so SICK of snow.

Work is slow, being cut hours.

I guess it means I need to go to the gym more. LOL

I couldn't agree with this more. Worst winter ever. Too cold, too much snow, just awful. I've had a persistent cold for two months that I can't shake because I can't warm up long enough to get better. :down: Last month, me and Kitsuner even ended up in a Red Cross disaster relief center after an impromptu road trip went awry. We went off an icy road into a snow bank and had no way to get back to Chicago. Roads were so bad, they'd set up the relief center for some 300+ motorists that'd had the same thing happen to them. >__< I

I vote that we all move somewhere warmer and make an AMV island community!
