Day two
September 24, 2009

I made it through day one and here I am just an hour from finishing day two in school. This morning was a scary one and I almost lost it. It’s a year two class so I thought maybe I was in over my head for a second. It turned out to be one lousy simple problem, that once resolved (on my own I may add) was not all that drastic. My second class was a breeze and actually was reminiscent of a class I took in high school oh about ten years ago…. Eek that makes me sound way older than I want to feel. Here I am on the tail end of my third class and feeling good. Today’s pace has been comfortable and I’m feeling confident.

The homework has been miniscule and I’m thankful (I realize I’ve now jinxed myself and will be overwhelmed in no time). The down time has been easy and I’m able to to get things done in the lab as well as tinkering around on some personal things (ie: this blog).

Well, it looks like I’m out of here for the day. How was your week? Plans for the weekend?

Oh hello 17.5 year olds…

I finally figured out how to look up what books are needed for my classes mearly 5 days prior to the start of the quarter (go me!). This was the point where I realized I hadn’t received my financial aid yet and already have hold tuition forms filled out for tuition and fees…. but those book, those damn books. Guess how much 6 (*new) books are? Just guess…. and remember we are at the 5 day mark before the quarter starts…. $275.00. That’s right folks I’ve got to come up with $275 and I’ve got to come up with it quick.

Thank all that’s good in the world (and my handsome bf) for helping me get them purchased. So I took my happy little ass down there on my lunch and waded through the sea of 17.5 year old’s with their parents walking around campus and getting all there school supplies. Now I’m just waiting on that handy dandy financial aid that should show up in the next 4 weeks, hopefully.

I feel like such a nerd putting on my new yellow back pack full of paper, pens and books. But at the same time I’m so excited… like giddy excited. I c a n n o t wait to start next week! So many new exciting thing to learn. Yeah okay I guess I am a nerd. Heh.

Guess what, today is the last day of my last week of full time work. I am a full time student starting Monday! Eeeeeek!

TGIF!

*Of course there isn’t any used book left, I waited to the last minute asssssssssuming my computer classes wouldn’t need books, right? Wrong. Anyway.

Greetings!

Some days just suck, and today was one of them. I have no work to do and have to fake it when boss man is hovering over my shoulder. Thankfully he wasn’t around most the day and I took a late lunch to help make the day go by faster. I can’t wait to go part time next week, maybe he’ll realize how much I’m needed? Doubt it. He’ll just be excited to not have to pay me full time wages…. Anyway, Im so happy to be off work finally!

In other news I was very excited to launch my 101 blog on Monday. I’m also happy I’ve inspired someone else to start a list.

Runs off to cross off that goal.

Okay I’m back, miss me? Two down ninety-nine to go. Whew.

Did I mention how effing twitterpated I am to start school next week?! Well I am.

More later….
