Hi, I'm here. As can be seen, my livejournal setup is an initial fairly bare boned creation. Hopefully to be less bare as I learn some of the tools and fun things.
Briefly, I am a year + into my accountancy re-education.
Within a 10 day rime span 2 massively wonderful things have happened. Through a circuitous route (do you expect anything else?) I found out on wed. 20-jun-07 that there were still accounting internships available for the summer quarter.
fri 22-jun-07 - application packet submitted, resume submitted, 1st faculty reference submitted
sat 23-jun-07 - 2nd faculty refernce submitted, finished self paced class
mon 25-jun-07 - personal statement submitted, interview set up
tues 26-jun-07 - final exam Personal Income Tax (adv.) with California emphasis
wed 27-jun-07 - internship interview
thur 28-jun-07 - I got it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
mon 02-jul-07 - attended internship orientaion, submitted stuff to DeAnza, corrected registration foo with Foothill.
I am now a NASA / Ames contract person ( through our wonderful community college system)
40 hr / week during the summer, 20 hr / week during school year
Now for the next wonderful thing during the same time span. Started with an owee that may be a good thing for the long run. I tripped and fell at the Mountain View farmers market. Scraped my right knee and palm. They healed up like I was in my 20's (yeah). MY left wrist was extremely painful at first and has later dulled to an ache. The California Edd and the VA have been making specific outreach efforts and providing advocacy to their various target audiences. This includes female veterans. An outreach team came to the Sunnyvale Edd on fri 22-jun-07. The business office person didn't know if I could join in any category because I have savings to go along with my miniscule income. The nurse / practitioner took my history, wiggled my fingers and re-wrapped my wrist. The team's attitude was "How can we make this happen?" rather than "how can we PREVENT her from using our resources?". I got the first of my 2 wrist x-rays before we knew the status of my application. sat 30-jun-07 I received my formal notification that I was now enrolled in the VA health care system. On tues 3-jul-07 I had my VA orientation and my second wrist xray. [this was the day AFTER my NASA internship orientation.] I have my first 2 doctor (Gp & GYN) appointments next tues 10-jul-07. Oh boy, oh boy, I have medical coverage for AT LEAST this year and probably next year.
Gee, all I sat down to say was 'hello world'.
