Back in July when I agreed to take upon myself extra [paid] work from a third client, I thought it wouldn’t be an issue.  Now after three months, I’m glad to say it’s almost over for that client with me.  This week alone I’ve put in 11 hours of overtime working at home.  The extra money will be nice, but my homework has been getting the back burner.  I finally told the account manager that I do not want to take on any large projects with the client and I want to be down to one client full time.

I think I have a condition where I need to be stressed.  I had an entire year off of school and took that time to job hop.  Now that I’m in a stable job I think my body said – LETS STRESS OUT AGAIN!!!  I have always liked school and learning new things.  I had taken a year off after highschool and it made it clear to me that I’m going to be a perpetual student.  My goal is to teach night school once I get my graduate degree.  Then I won’t have to pay to be in school hee hee.

My headaches have been on and off this week.  I had gotten nauseous yesterday for no reason and I believe it was a headache coming on.  Tylenol seemed to help.  As I type this (while in class :O ) I’m feeling a little bit of ice in my left temple.  Nothing too substantial but it feels like someone dragging a cold screwdriver over my skin to say I’m here bitch and ready to stick ya!!  Let’s just hope the drive home goes well.  It took me an hour and fifteen minutes to get to school and I wanted to go hide in the back seat.  I heard that affects your driving though.


I'm a 20-something full time geek, part time student and photographer with a life partner, dog, house, and the two cars. I also have an ice pick in my left temple every day.

Get a load of this- ear acupressure for migraines. Tried a bit on myself- along the outer edge I found the places that were most sensitive and put sturdy but not hard pressure on them for a bout 15 secs. It actually helped! For whatever reason, both my ears burning and hurting badly – outside only- not inside- has become a regular thing during migraines. Really weird. Icing the outer ear a little seems to help the headache sometimes. Odd, no?
