Today was a good day.

I found a folder for one student and some paperwork for another student that had been eluding me for two weeks.

I found a folder for another student that had eluded me for two months.

I found a solution to a student’s bizarre transfer problem. (She went from a semester school to a quarter school back to a semester school and the differences in how English composition is handled plus the mathematical conversions of the hours between systems initially caused her to appear one credit short. I found a solution for her unique situation.)

I got unexpected and extremely high praise from the educational advisor who was trying to help said transfer student – "Great news on this one!! The communications was a worry – I am indebted to you once again for your tenacity to resolve issues and your quick communication with us. You are my hero!"

W/o going into details about why this is such a big deal – one of the seven students I’m tracking resolved herself completely today. Three should be resolved at the end of this fall term. Two worked with the Registrar who has her fingerprints all over the registration and at the end of next spring they should be completely resolved. One I think has “left the building.” So I’m really excited!

I didn’t snack today and even managed a slow walk despite a backache and sore legs.

I’m sure other good stuff happened, too, but I can’t remember it offhand. It’s registration, and I’m not crying yet – that’s good. Even though I’m sorting the mail for a coworker who’s out of town, it’s not putting me behind in my priority work and I’ve managed to collect a few cute stamps for my philatelist uncle. (WOW – I spelled philatelist correctly!) While not clean by any stretch of the imagination, my desk is not awash in paperwork either.

I am going to have to remember this moment because in December it is going to get bad. It is going to get bad and ugly and I’m going to go absolutely mental.

Definitely!

When I was typing this I said the word "mental" like the guy from the IT crowd and then I giggled. :)

Leg disabled!
