I did survive

If any livejournal fashion police were hoping my LJ was done for, you're out of luck. Apparently, my LJ's colors are atrocious, and hard to read. So says my Dad. Well, this is my answer; it's just revenge for all the times I've seen inaccessible web sites. Actually, I've considered writing a page on my personal web site all in black that screen readers can read, but sighted people cannot. But that would through off people who are visually impaired, and don't use screen readers. And I'm not always that mean, just most of the time.
Tuesday wasn't a bad day. I was done with the benedril, which was a plus. We worked on the Kodiak route, and I figured out how to get into the bank with the accessible ATM. The corner of lake and broadway is a slight problem, Julio keeps trying to stop for the curb cut for Broadway, instead of taking me to the one for lake. He doesn't turn into the one at broadway, but I have to urge him on. Other than that, not bad though!
Yesterday we did hopefully our last Jazz band observation. I've enjoyed it, don't get me wrong, but I'm tired of getting there so early! I got a hair cut which feels nice!
Today I was so tired! I hardly knew my own name. I don't know why I'm so exhausted, probably the foot, which is still being obnoxious. Probably all the medications I was on too. Anyone who's been here long enough to remember the birth of this LJ knows what strong medications do to me.
I'm trying to do the trend analysis assignment, on something with reading material for the blind, but I'm not sure it's going to work.
Sometimes I wish I hadn't taken CIS Writing. I could get into a whole wrant with that class, but I'd better not. It's just really hard when you're burnt out, and you've yet to recieve a handout at the exact same time as your class. I can't even conduct my own peer editing conferences! I understand that the conversion from Apple to PC makes things inaccessible unless you convert them, but please, take the time to do it, and show me that you think I'm worth having in the class.
They put up a fence around part of the area where I relieve Julio, and I'm hoping they're not gonna close the whole thing off so that I can't use it. I know that they want to keep kids from walking through the grass. I think it'll be fine. But today I was so tired, and didn't understand what exactly had happened, that I was a little disoriented. I got through it.
Julio's been as good as gold, well, almost. The flies at school have been bugging him, and I'm not sure if it's okay behavior for him to snap at them. It's hard to correct.
I have this feeling that if I could get enough sleep, and just recharge, I would be a lot more mature sounding. Right now, I think I should shut up, I sound like a little brat kid throwing a tantrum.
Well, that's all for me from here.
Hugs!
Nickie
