This is the end of the work week for me. I now have the next three days to myself, something I have looked forward to for the last four days. Last week was the first round of mid-terms at the college, and I now have the results for each of my classes from that time. I have developed a rash on certain parts of my body, my face, my left leg, my left elbow and a small part of my neck. My first challenge was to find a “
quack” to solve what it is I have, then deal with it because it looks gross, especially on my face.
I now have all the grades from my classes for the midterms I did last week. Both of my CRIM classes I sailed through them with a 91%, and 89% (U of FV) respectively as my achievement; however, French was not even close as I only made a grade of 44%, an obvious fail for the first of three exams for the term. I don’t know what happened with my French class. I don’t know why I’m having so much difficulty with that subject? Some of the questions that I got wrong were not due to not knowing the language, but rather me not reading the questions carefully. For example, one question was:”Zéro, __, deux, __, quatre, __ .” So, I read it as “what are these numbers?” However, what the instructor wanted was, I needed to fill in the missing numbers in the sequence, spelling out each number! So, I could have done a lot better if I had really focused on the questions rather than looking at the “Subject Matter,” which was what I thought was the sole purpose of being there? Hey, I really have a psychological issue with this class because I can read the textbook, and understand it, but doing oral dictation, forget it, I freeze up and want to go and hide behind my desk.
I have this rash. Yuck, sounds gross doesn’t it! But sadly I do. It started on Saturday. I noticed it when I woke up and looked in the mirror. My eyes were all puffy and my skin was a “glowing red.” Then I noticed little patches on other areas of my body. That afternoon I went over to the local clinic because I wanted to know what the hell I have! So, Saturday afternoon I get to the clinic and the front desk told me that there would be a four hour wait! I could get a queue number and come back. I agreed, and went home. Later that day, four hours after the first visit, I was turned away again because new patients showed up that had appointments before hand and the clinic doctor (
Quack) needed to see them. So I went home. Again I tried the next day, and again the line up was over four hours long, and again I went home. So I am pissed off at this sorry excuse of a medical system. I went out to Abbottsford and went to a clinic there that was more rural than Langley City’s clinics, and I had success right away. The doctor there was more accommodating, and he has a way better understanding of dealing with people who are in pain and who are living in a world of uncertainties. I wrote about this before here on my Blog. So, that rash appears to be from mold. I have being doing work [at a friend’s place] in a moldy environment, and every time I go into this building, I cough, and I start to itch! Yuck!
