RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
So, I got hearing aids about a week and a half ago. It is such an adjustment. I know now I probably should have done it ten years ago, or even before that. I had no idea how much hearing loss I had, I suppose I had just adapted to it over time.

Sometimes it's overwhelming...all the sounds and the volume of those sounds, it's too much to take in and sort out. I hear little noises in the house I had never noticed before...even the clicking of the dogs' nails on the floor. When I went to the grocery store I couldn't get out of there fast enough...too much audio input that I had not noticed before.

I am playing with the adjustments for volume and sound environment that are part of the app on my phone to find the right settings for different situations.

I have found out that I can pretty much shut out the world by either hitting the mute button or taking them out.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Girlfriend leaving for few days on a business trip. That will interfere with my evening runs since the two year old isn't quite old enough to be home alone.

Don't let those gnomes and their illusions get you down. They're just gnomes and illusions.

Depends on what caused the shits. Tainted goat or to much coffee?

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
Chair gave me permission to do the Final, scheduled for tomorrow night by the Registrar, early if I can get people to come in so I'm not here while the worst of the snow is expected, but Dean said that I have to be here if even one of them isn't doing it early or has said they will. (Considering I have two students whom I have never seen once in the semester still enrolled...heh.) So I may get snowed in tomorrow night on campus. Bringing a duffel bag with sheets, blow up mattress, extra food, flashlight, and bottled water. I've spent the last three hours emailing them with options, running down to the Registrar to get phone numbers I can't access, calling them, finding out our numbers aren't always accurate, posting an announcement on our class's online learning platform page, and basically running myself ragged. I know possibly being stuck in a warm building is a FWP, but still...

Need to think of a witty signature.
