  • Maybe. Depends on how lively/ decayed they are.
    In other, MUCH happier news, I FINALLY finished my SER. After a year or so of procrastination, writing, and rewriting, it's ready to be printed, signed, and sent out.

    • Spammer, unless that was a VERY oblique way to commiserate or congratulate, I'm shipping you off to Vulcan. Beat it.

      • While digging around the TBPE website, I found something that may yet save my hide with WTC: my boss there left the company and started his own. I don't know where he is, ergo he can't sign off. The FAQ indicates that I can get someone else that knows my work to sign off on it. Meaning I don't hafta worry about him giving me a bad review to the board.

              • That was hurdle one, probably the biggest one aside from the exam itself. The SER is the supplemental employment record, or proof to the board that I have enough of the right kind of experience to be a Professional Engineer. Once they accept that as proof enough,I'm eligible to sit another 8 hr exam. When I pass that, I get my stamp and can legally work as a professional engineer and can write P.E.. after my name.

                • Those little letters always make such a huge difference, don't they? Will they give you opportunity to move up in the engineering world or are you stuck due to lack of open positions?

                  I know!! Celebrate by hosing down the dog!!

                  • In terms of becoming a PE, it actually opens a lot of doors for me, as well as garnering a significant pay boost at my current company. If I apply for reciprocity in New Mexico, then that opens even more doors.
                    I farking love my naturalist/ chiro. He's awesome. He saw my bloodwork and immediately saw that everything ties back to my thyroid, as I knew. He's testing for iodine deficiency and having me check my basal temperature. Says that he thinks I could probably go off the levothyroxine and onto Naturethroid at 1 grain, but he's checking to make sure that's actually the cause, and that it's not my adrenal glands fucking with the thyroid or a mineral deficiency. AND, since he did an adjustment on me and didn't hafta run stuff through the computer, insurance paid, not me.

                        I paid off my last personal loan today. I should be able to have the car paid off by late July, if not earlier, meaning I'd pay it off a full year earlier than the loan maturity date. At that point, I would need to decide between funneling it into an IRA, paying off the house, or paying off the student loans. I actually want to make that decision relatively soon.

                          ^5 on paying off personal debt!

                          • Thanks, doc. I decided to go with socking back to pay off the house, as the house has a higher interest rate and significantly more owed. Also socking back to pay off these things, as opposed to paying extra each month, means I have a slush fund if things go south.
                            I feel like shit. I slept for shit. I wanna crawl on to the futon and pass the hell out. My bowels are acting strange (side effect of sleeplessness) and I can't really think. I know I need to go in. My boss is out and she directed one of our major clients to call me with any questions on his projects. He WILL call. Granted, I'd also be twiddling my thumbs for part of the day, as most of my projects are in drafting/ waiting for signatures or TCEQ.

                            • Well, small blessings. Even with shitty sleep this week (meaning it's higher than my "true" weight), I'm back down to 126 after a hormone week from hell.

                              • Good thinking with the savings. Hulky and I are trying to decide how to tackle my loans. After we get through his (car & medical, so fairly minimal), he wants to start tackling my student loans as a joint venture. Seems odd to me, since it's such a personal debt, but it will get us to larger savings & moving on/out/away much faster, so that is good! Interest rates are confusing to me. I thought none of mine would change, but then I saw one at 6.8% and I'm pretty sure it used to be 6.5%. At least that's the smallest balance one and the others have definitely not changed. I'll knock that sucker out first!
