Monday, August 07, 2017      5 comments

Today, I finally tutored my aunt in English for the first time. At first, she tried to give me a check for $40 (I charge $20 an hour, and I tutored her for 2 hours today), but I asked if she could please pay me in cash, so after our session, we... Read more
Finally Got My Transcript, and Watched "Twilight"
Friday, August 04, 2017      6 comments

In my last blog, several of you had suggested that I go to LAHC in person to get my transcript. Thank you! :) Yesterday, I looked online, and LAHC's website said that Admissions and Records closes at 1:30 pm, and reopens at 4:30 pm. So, my mom... Read more

My last blog was very depressing, but I got a lot of great support from my fellow Sparkers, so THANK YOU! :) I'm glad to say that I am feeling much better. 2 days ago, I had my heart ultrasound. I asked my worker if he is a sonographer, a... Read more

Horrible Phone Interview
Friday, July 21, 2017      11 comments

Remember how I was referred to the hiring official for that federal secretary job? Well, I got a call from her this morning, and she was just flat out RUDE! :( She was reading my resume for the first time while talking to me, which I thought wa... Read more

Chest Pain

I had chest pain last week, and today as well. It's a dull ache that lasts about 5 minutes, and then it goes away. The last time it happened, I brushed it off, figuring that it was a one time thing, but when it happened again today, it scared ... Read more
