Earlier in this journal, I wrote about how I had gotten messed around with my start-up funds. According to information at the time, I thought I would have enough cash to get one microscope. There must have been some other purchase orders in the pipeline, because the purchase order for my one microscope got refused; I'd used up too much of my funds from the Vice-President Academic's office.
I suppose not being able to order a microscope isn't that big a deal right now, since not a single piece of equipment I've ordered is here yet. No use worrying about not having a spark plug when you don't have a car to put it in.
It's just annoying.
