A flurry of activity

I have about an hour and a half before I need to leave for work. Today has been a flurry of activity. I woke up at about 8:30am and have been busy up until about 2pm.

This morning I needed to get some papers together for my appointment with the Tennessee Department of Human Services to see if I'm eligible for renewal of my TennCare. I've only used it a few times but I wanted it as a "just in case" kind of thing.

As I'm going through my papers I saw one I got a few days ago for my insurance that said I was late again and owed the late fee. I had already paid it but wanted to make sure it wasn't going to get cut off on me since I need it for work. Long story short, three phone calls, one transfer, and half an hour later I was told I should have been charged a 10$ late fee for December but was, for some reason, only charged 2$. So my insurance isn't going to get cancelled and they would make it so I would only need to pay 8$ on next month's payment instead of the 10$ the online payment site was saying I needed to pay as a late fee for this month.

Once I had that taken care of I went online to LetsTalk, where I got my cell phone from, and printed a copy of the rebate form. I found all the papers I needed for that (the rebate form, this month's cell phone bill, the packing slip, and the gray LetsTalk sticker on the package), made a copy of them, and put all of that in an envelope.

I made a copy of my FAFSA SAR report to bring to the community college with me. I'm thinking about taking College Trigonometry and Elementary Statistics & Probability this semester. In order to get them on the same days I have to take one of them online. I figure it would be better to take College Trigonometry in class so I'll be taking the other online. I'm tempted to see about getting Microeconomics and could fit it in right after College Trigonometry, but I don't know if I want to get a loan that big even if I can repay it in a matter of a couple of months, especially with the big loan I already have from last Spring.

I also made out a 15$ deposit so I have enough in my account to make the loan payment for the big loan.

I dropped off the rebate envelope at the adjunct post office location that's in the bank building. From there I went to the TDHS for my appointment a little early, and basically got told they couldn't renew it since I make more than 300$ a month. Oh well, that's fine. It won't actually expire until the middle or end of February so I have time to see a dentist or what-not.

From there I went to the community college to the advising room and was "advised" for the classes I wanted to take. They couldn't enter them into the system because I hadn't technically applied for the semester yet. From there it was off to the financial aid department (down the hall) and told I had to "correct" my FAFSA to add their school code. They couldn't use the copy of my SAR I had printed off to tell them I wasn't eligible for anything since they needed a copy in their system. They also advised me not to sign up for any classes yet since they would just get dropped tonight for not having paid yet. Lastly I went to the admissions office and filled out an admissions form which, thankfully, did not need another application fee.

Once I got back home I made the corrections to the FAFSA, paid for my web hosting/email, ate a slice of pizza, and wrote this.

It's time for me to get ready for work now. Later.
