I met a mermaid...

I jumped in the ocean yesterday. The cold and freezing ocean. While we were walking to the car on the way to the beach there was snow on the ground. It was cold. I needed to get footage of myself jumping into the ocean for a video project for class. I believe the video turned out alright, not as good as I had expected. I didn't plan enough video to match how much sound I needed. I could always go back and add more, but I probably won't. Right now I am in the MultiMedia lab. I am uploading the video to youtube and it is taking a long time to load.

I am on probation. Peggy sent me the letter via email this morning. I believe the straw that broke the camel's back was I no showed a 1-1 with her this morning. This is completely my fault, I own that. I sent her an email today informing her that I had to miss next weeks RA meeting because my class was going to the Thurston county television station and would be there from 2pm - 8pm. The RA meeting is from 2 - 4. She responded and told me I needed to get a note from my faculty verifying that I am actually going to TCTV with my class. I personally found this to be absolutely ridiculous. I am not in elementary school and I am not a criminal. This job is supposed to be based on trust. How can my bosses trust that I am being a good community builder if they can't even trust me when I say I have a field trip. I told Peggy via email today that I found it absolutely offensive that she would expect that from me. She hasn't replied. I am really nervous and don't know what to do. On one hand I don't want to lose my job but on the other, that is a ridiculous request and I think letting her get away with it is going to make my job harder. I kind of want to do a really want to do well in all other aspects of this job so that I can stick it to my bosses. I may joke about it a lot, but I really don't want to lose my job. My job is my home and my job is my means to eat. AAHHH I don't know what to do.

In other news, I am planning on going to Dance O Dance this Friday. The Pasties are playing!
