I managed to postpone informing HR that I wouldn’t be taking the job for a good three days (really, I am the worst), and when I finally worked up the nerve, it was only to send them an email. “As such it really disappoints me to say that I’m going to have to decline the position. I’m so sorry to have put you through this rigmarole for nothing…” etc etc.
Since sending it they’ve tried to call me two or three times, and have sent a reply email asking me to call them back. Queue longly drawn out, pained and echoing sighs, oh me. So surely I will call them tomorrow, and remain sternly resolute against the pleading and cajoling that is sure to rain upon me. haha.
Besides that today wasn’t bad. I arranged with my boss to move to another branch two days a week starting in two week’s time, meaning.. no more phone work after two weeks! hooray hooray, forever hooray!
Came home, watched an episode of True Blood, then Jason began administering the WAIS-IV to me while we filmed it for his competency (he has to be observed). My score won’t be totally valid, as I have done training in administering it as well… however I maintain that it will still be mostly valid, as in our training we only went through the first two or so items of each subtest, and I didn’t even get to administer every subtest myself (meaning I never saw the answers or scoring). As the first few items of each subtest are so simple everyone gets them anyway, I’m sure my score won’t really be affected. Really. Nineteen blankets minus five blankets minus six blankets or whatever.
Well, I hope not, anyway, as I do want to know what my IQ is. And since doing the first half tonight, I’m even more sure because it wasn’t really anything like I thought it would be.. actually answering the items. It gets so difficult. Especially arithmetic. Bleh. I am so embarrassingly bad at math. I count on my fingers, even.
