To Work or Blog... that is the question.

Today marks day 10 of my re-employment.

I haven't really brought it up directly, mostly because I think I'm so overwhelmed with new information that I don't want to face reality. But today's the day.


Back to Work. Bye-Bye daily blogging.


After a week in California in training at my new Bio Tech Headquarters, this is what I'm facing for the next 6 weeks:



I'm about to rip my eyeballs out. For those of you who read my writing, favorite topics tend to focus on the human anatomy or how my kids are such ass-holes at times, of course usually sprinkled with an occasional F-bomb here and there. So instead of writing about my husband's taint, or how my kids' asses smell like um... er... well, ASS way too much, I'm now having to submerge in what I believe to be PhD level chemistry modules on things I will most likely NEVER have to speak about with customers anyway...

I do not have science background. I'm a business major. And I am not a scientist. I'm in SALES for God's sake. So this is just pure torture.


And this morning as I should be cramming away, I choose to blog.

I.Just.Can't.Open.The.Books.Again.

We all have our different learning styles. Mine involves pictures and simplistic descriptions from those around me. And here's my level of learning style:




You see, I probably can understand cell structure and differentiate between DNA and rDNA and mDNA and all that other shit. Or wait, is that mRNA?

OK, so let's just cut to the shit. I can't remember anything that isn't drawn out in simple diagrams that comes along with a slick acronym to memorize it by. Without that, I don't care about it. And DNA surely is not what makes my sales numbers.
So in my world, rDNA will be remembered as "Real dicks need ass" for the next 6 weeks, until my final exam is over. And then, rDNA will dissolve from my memory.

Real dicks DO need ass, right?

So while I have to get a 90 or above on every test through mid-July, my blogging hobby will slowly be replaced. Here's what my new writing hobby has turned into:





And I'm determined to keep blogging. It's just going to be hard to find inspiring content when all I'm reading about is genomes and chromosomes and rheumatoid arthritis injections. But I'll find something.



IWP.
I will prevail.

Oh, no! Work and money is so overrated. Can't you just be unemployed, broke and blog? No?

Sassy Pants said...

LOL - as someone who does have a science background, I can tell you I'm pretty sure there is no such thing as mDNA. Yeah, pretty sure.

Dr Zibbs said...

I'd have to kill myself.

ModernMom said...

Yikes! Good luck to you. I'm sure once you get back to work your co-workers will provide some nice fodder for your blog :)

Stacie's Madness said...

noooo, damn jobs.

Jan @ Struck by Serendipity said...

Wow, that looks tought! Good luck on the tests.

Erin said...

Work....the part of the day that gets in the way of life!

Can't you just blog from work? I do, and I'm in sales....okay it's just insurance sales not that fancy DNA stuff but still! =)

It will pass by quick and just think you'll be all the more smarter....hmmm more smarter? Maybe I need some classes! Nahh I'd rather poke my eyes out with chopsticks!

Jodie said...

Wow! That looks really boring. Good luck for the next 2 months on your tests! Can I just say that I am glad it is you and not me that is having to learn that?

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Are you a scientist for the secret service now???

We are going to MISS you terribly!!!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Hey Dr. Zibbs is a Dr... why would he need to kill himself over chemistry??? isn't that his forte???

Swirl Girl said...

maybe I could sneak into the HQ and steal the finals!!

you were here?? and not an email until after you left!! Palm Garden or Marriot??

(i was away the 14th to 19th myself)

Kimberly said...

LOL, oh it's so hard to get back into the crunch of hard core science like that. At least your sense of humor will carry you through it! Genetics is what I taught in grad school, so shoot me an email if you want to anytime. You've helped me so much think as a writer-mama it is the least I can do! I hope the job goes well!

Missy said...

Screw the job! We will send food baskets! LOL

Sha said...

Well at least you have time to go out with your friends once in a while. We can help you out with things like mDNA..."manly dudes never asslick"

the iNDefatigable mjenks said...

That's a pretty simplified diagram to begin with.

But, it is mRNA.

And, if you think it's complicated, that blue circle on the diagram has seven or eight different enzymes that comprise it. Then there's a whole host that come along and zip the DNA back closed.

If you need any help, shoot me an email.

D'Lynn said...

Good Luck! studying sucks, I have sworn that I will never go back to school.

Dani said...

Aww damn....I miss your blogging!!! Well if you need a breather and wanna get the kids out of the house, stop up. I have beer in the frig and 5 acres to let the kids run crazy!!

consuella said...

i've mastered the art of learning how to pretend i am taking work notes with my laptop while actually blogging. you just got to remember to look up and nod every once and awhile.

Wendy said...

Holy crap ---that looks way to complicated for me. You lost me at "DNA"---unless we are talking about dicks need ass, then I can relate. My DIL is in pharmacy school and she comes over her and mumble jumbles stuff to me that I haven't a clue what she's talking about. good luck with all that, and hopefully we will still find some of your good posts on the blog---

wendy said...

Sheezit ---that was me above, I was on a different account and I wanted you to know who was talking to ya

Jennifer said...

I wish I had as good of an excuse for my lackluster blogging. But then again I know all I want to know about RA injections (TSMA - They Suck Monkey Ass) so I don't exactly envy what you're learning.

Best of luck to ya though!!!

binks said...

Damn! I think I'll quit complaining about the jerkoffs at my job.
Just thinking about it makes head hurt.

Katie said...

I just thought of a way to remember mRNA in honor of your new braces: Metal Rips Nads Apart.
Your hubby will love that.
