Snafu's Abundant

Long story short... I found out this past week that my financial aid had been cancelled for this coming term (the term that starts tomorrow). I had to take an extension on one of my classes from last term, which puts it in the computer as me not having completed all my classes, which kicks me out of eligibility for financial aid, which means I can't attend classes at all Winter Term. Aghhh!!

I emailed my advisor about it, mainly just telling him the situation and asking if he could let me into the building to get my stuff out of my locker. His response was that I should meet with the Dean and that she may have an idea or two to get me back in classes sooner. Which I totally wasn't expecting! I was sure all hope was gone for resolving this quickly, but he makes me think there might be a way for me to take classes this term after all.

So now I'm in panic-mode, trying to gather up all my stuff that I'll need tomorrow. I was already sort of resolved to just taking the term off and looking for work to tide me over, but now that things may actually be resolved, I figure I should attend class in the meanwhile, just in case I can re-register. Missing even a day in this program can put you way behind.

To top it all off, my sleep schedule has gotten completely out of whack, as per normal when I'm on vacation. If I'd anticipated returning to classes tomorrow, I would've tried harder this past week to pull my sleeping schedule back to normal, but I didn't... so... Just to give you perspective, last night I didn't fall asleep until 5:30 in the morning. That's probably not going to work anymore now that I have to be at class at 10:00 a.m.!

INFJ vs INFP

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.
