I had such a weird dream and I am sorry I am hispanic and we are very superstitious people. There is a meaning or sign in anything, or at least we try to find some type of symbolism. Anyways, going back to my dream, I dreamt about my extended family, and to me, automatically, that is NOT GOOD (lol). That means I’m going to have a bad day (you see, very superstitious). My dad is a superintendent and his boss is a totally b***tch, like she instills FEAR in people. I like to call her Cruella DeVil. Well, I just called my parents (I always check in with them) and my dad told me that Cruella DeVil told him to show up at the office at 11 AM, this is very random. But I really hope that meeting goes well and it’s hard not think of the worse, because like I said, she NEVER does this. I’m very scared because the worse thing that might happen is that he might get fired (plus my dream does not help, since it was a bad omen). I think I wouldnt be able to get it together, because my mother is unemployed and this puts a lot of pressure on me. I’m still trying to get through this friggen dissertation but I can’t worry about my family at the same time. It’s difficult when people tell you need to prioritize- but how do you do that when your family needs you??? Please, wish me luck and I hope everything goes well in that meeting with my dad and his boss.
My advisor, well last night decides to email me and tell me that my chapters are CRAP. I worked so hard on them and now all of the sudden its CRAP. I will write about him another day, because it is alot, he put literally put me through hell and is not the GREATEST advisor. I have never gone through soo much turmoil in life, every since I came into this program and paired up with my advisor. He is like on a different like, let me explain, in a very short version. The guy is a raging lunatic and goes off on anyone and who ever’s paper he is reading, oh boy, he will take it out on him or her. I seriously think people like that should really retire, because they are not help and create a very hostile environment. So, I have a meeting with him today (oh God, 2 meetings – my dad and I- with the devils). Last night, when I read his email (advisors)- I couldn’t even respond because had I did- it wouldn’t go too well. So, I decided to go out for a run and it really helped me cool off some steam.
Well, I’m off- going to get some work done and prep for my meeting with my advisor.
Hope you all have a better day!
So, I was right, bad dream equals bad day. So, my dad’s boss said they are selling the building (which my dad has been a superintendent for 18 years). Now, I have a massive headache because all I can think about is the future. Who is going to hire a 65 year old? This is not good.
Sorry, to keep updating, but I just felt the need to write more. Today was a very rough and tough day for my family. I feel bad for my dad because my mom just told me that is feeling down since his conversation with his boss. We are worried about the future and what is going to happen next. We never imagined this would happen, my dad may need to find another job, but hopefully whoever is buying the building will hire my father, so he can continue to be the superintendent for the same building. Then we would not have to move. This is so stressful and another ‘thing’ to have on my shoulders. But I will be positive and pray everything goes well.
As for my advisor, just had a meeting with him and went better than expected. Just pointed out a few changes I have to make. But seriously, was the email necessary enough to freak me out? UGH.
