    It’s official that my district is closed for the remainder of the year. I’m sad. I just hope my live classes go well. I broke the class into 4 small groups to make it more manageable. I figured out how to use my iPad as a document camera that connects to Blue Jeans (I found it has better quality video and audio than Zoom) so I might be able to do art with them on Fridays.

    Our director thinks that we will be remote at least through July (cc @hallokween).

    Got a text from my boss's boss to review and email he sent me and confirm I got the text. I text him back that I would review it now. He said no rush just do it before first thing tomorrow morning. He sent me a 12 page document to "review in detail" and make corrections as needed as well as several questions he needed an explanation for!! I'm glad I checked right away because this is going to take a while and I was going to start drinking with lunch!

    Sounds just like my old boss when I worked at the CPA firm. I am positive he is still making everyone go in, business as usual.

    My PT hospital has required me to come in person for a 9 hour (not COVID related) training today. I’m in a fucking computer lab with with other people doing shit I could have done from home.

    the lady next to me tried to “wow” me with the fact that more than 100k people died from the 09 H1N1 so we shouldn’t be hyped over COVID because the media is blowing it out of proportion. I just looked at her and said that I recall exactly the media coverage of H1N1 and I also remember being in nursing school at the time training to run field hospitals in case it got bad over here like it did in other places. There was talk of graduating us all early if need be.

    Crying because we are treating a symptom a patient has with a med when it's very likely the patient has cancer because they can't afford the transportation and co-pays to get the ordered scans. I hate this broken system so much.

    And also slightly terrified that I don’t know where the last 21 months have gone.

    Trying to work on some crap now that M’s asleep and find that the WiFi on my tablet isn’t working and the correction will take admin privileges which I don’t have and obviously our IT can’t remote in. Tomorrow is going to be fun!

    A is on a Teams call and I think his department head doesn't know how to end the call. I'm fairly certain everyone else knows how to leave the call and are just seeing how long it takes for her to figure out.

    Not me, but I can overhear Z’s work call with the advisory board (mostly high-powered corporate attorneys) and someone just said that they moved from their NYC apartment to their Westchester estate for self-isolation and wow what a weird world.

    How is that a job.

    Ugh. We're working on a project and trying to determine what level of data they want the reporting to be setup. Both levels of reporting, X and Y, that they want, which are VERY important, are not levels that exist in the system we use? They literally have a spreadsheet that tie X to Y but we have no effing clue how to tie X and Y to any other information to build the reports because there is no direct linkage to any system based master data or information. Like someone just thought up these levels, told people to use them and there is no documentation on how to figure out what goes into what level so I have no idea how they are supposedly "already using this information."
