I’m really bad at this blogging thing … I think of clever things to talk about all day long but as soon as I get home I really don’t feel like using my brain. I suppose that this job I have is to blame. I have to know almost everything concerning Financial Aid, Admissions, and Records & Registration and with that much knowledge stored up there … there really isn’t much room for much else. Not to mention that I speak with complete idiots all day long. No, really. Working in Student Services at a university really shows you how idiotic people are.
For example, I actually had a student yesterday complain to me that she couldn’t access her unofficial transcripts through the account under Guest access. GUEST access. I said, “Ma’am, you have to log in under your student number in order for the computer to access your information.” You’ve got to be kidding me! She logged in as a guest and then couldn’t for the life of her figure out why she couldn’t see her academic record. WOW. Maybe it’s just me, maybe I’m being overly critical but that seems like a pretty simple thing and this is just the tip of the iceberg folks … I’m not exaggerating.
Okay, so I’ve started twittering … good times. It’s a lot like updating your facebook status but oh well, still fun to post and it is much easier than having to write a whole post for the blog 😉 Maybe I’ll actually be good at it, especially when I figure out how to do it from my phone. Last night I sliced up a whole cucumber and dipped each slice into hummus and YUM I love it so much and eat it regularly and wanted to post to twitter but I was too lazy to open the computer … so I just thought it to myself. I figure … it’ll be a lot easier for me to post a quick message about what I’m doing, where I’m going, what I’m eating, etc through twitter so I might be a better twitterer than blogger. Man, my brain really is fried … I’m rambling on and on … Okay, I’ll stop now. Have a good weekend! 🙂
