more random crap

more random crap

i talked to my supervisor at SCSU today, and he mentioned that after i graduated there would most likely be some job opportunities available at scsu. one inparticular is in the department i’ll be working in as a web content manager. awesome! i would love this job, but i have to improve my web copywriting skills. which, he said, i could hone during my tenure as graduate assistant.
w00t!1!
(i hate job searching (the first part of the year confirmed that), and if this is a possibility, i am ALL for that!)
anyway, i start on tuesday, 20 hours a week, so i will be in the office tuesday, wednesday and thursday. which means 4 day weekends for me!!
and, i will be making even less than i did on unemployment. i called today for an application for food stamps, and i’m thinking of working part-time at crafts direct over the holiday season. oh joy. $3 gas and paying bills is annoying.

AUGH!

AUGH!

DDR and my flat feet made my heel spurs!!!
ok, so i have heel spurs. they are annoying buggers. i wake up in the morning and i can barely walk on my right heel it hurts so bad.
so i finally looked up heel spurs and what exactly they are. the muscle that connects your heel to the ball of your foot is what actually causes they pain. it’s inflamed (apparenlty all the time). this gets inflamed from lack of arch support (i have flat feet) and lack of calf muscle flexibility (when your calf muscle isn’t flexible enough, this muscle in your foot makes up for it). when i play ddr, my poor little heel muscle is working overtime, because my calves aren’t working AND i play on the balls of my feet.
and i realized my heel spurs really didn’t start to be a pain until after i started playing DDR.
so now i’m going to do calf stretching exercises and wear my tennis shoes (with arch support) more often.
stupid heel spurs!
