Greys is back!!!!

I am excited tonight as Grey's Anatomy is finally back!!!! I cleaned off my coffee table so I can work on my homework while watching Grey's.


Some of the events of my day:

  • I got done writing my history paper and emailed it to my teacher him to review my draft. This is a big thing as I need to have this done this week so I can get my password emailed to me for my LAST exam in History! I have been nervous about if he was going to get back to me in time.

  • I got to bed around 4am but couldn't fall asleep! I had about 4 hours of sleep before my alarm went off for class.

  • I always drink an energy drink (caffeine free) during my New Testament class. It isn't natural for me to be some where at noon. I find having an energy drink makes me feel better!

  • The reason for me mentioning the energy drink is because I but it inside by book bag and when I got to class, A hole had managed to get puntured in the side. This got all my books and calaender wet! I did have about half of my energy drink left but no carbonation. It just wasn't as fun today.

  • While I was in my New Testament class, I was talking about the History paper I wrote. One of the girls has had this teacher in class before and told me he was tough. I started worrying the rest of my class about him emailing me about what he thought about my paper. I should have checked my cell phone as I had an email at about 1130 with the suggestions he had for me. I am going to finish that up tonight and submit it to be graded! I really am going to finish this History class on time!! Graduation, here I come!!!!

  • I finally came home today and ordered my graduation announcements. I should have them in about a week. I really hope nothing happens with them arriving in that time!

  • I didn't realize all my books getting wet from the incident of the energy drink till I decided to have lunch and to read while I was eating. My American Government book got it the worst and I worked this afternoon separating all the pages so they will hopefully dry better.

  • After all of this, I went back home to get my jump drive and to possibly mow my front yard. My grass is very tall and I was hoping to mow it last week but I was too sick to even think of it. Today wouldn't had been any better as I get short of breath a little easy. While I was putting gas in my lawn mower, my neighbor came over and told me that he mows lawns and was wanting to mow my lawn. I agreed till I have more time to mow my lawn myself. He will be here tomorrow! I have taken some numbers down but hadn't had time to call.

  • After talking with my neighbor and getting my jump drive, I headed to the Mudhouse to get some much needed homework done. My battery went dead in my wireless mouse. The touch mouse pad makes me crazy when I have to use it! The music in the Mudhouse today was getting on my nerves. Then some girl was talking loudly about her rehab and possible felony she may be charged with while eating. After fighting with the touch mouse pad for over an hour, I finally decided that being at home may actually be a better place to study today.

  • I have three research papers left. The next one being due on Monday. I work Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I hope to at least get started on it tonight. I also have two assignements due by midnight tonight. I actually have lots to do and need to get busy!

  • Till next time . . . .

Under the weather . . . .

I have been quite ill the last few days. It hasn't helped me with all the loads of homework I have!!! I have two papers to write this week and I think I might actually start feeling a little better tomorrow. I finally was able to get in and see my doctor today and he told me that I have a sinus infection along with acute bronchitis. No wonder I have felt like crap!!! I have been running a temp since last week and thought it would go away on its own but instead, a new symptom came about everyday! I am glad that I have an inhaler and antibiotics to help me get over this so I can concentrate on getting done with school.

Over the weekend was the roughest. I had 5 chapters to do in my History class for a test I had to take on Sunday. I was quite excited that I did get it done and I got a 94%!! I now have an 88% in this class. I have a paper to write which my goal is to have it done by Wednesday. Then I can take my final exam next week and be done!!! Then I will be down to 3 classes. That will be nice.

On Monday I still went to class even though I wasn't feeling good as it was the first day of my Capstone class. I received my cap and gown that day. We did talk a little about graduation and the pinning. I am getting excited and really can't wait till I get done with this History class so I can stop worrying about it and getting it done on time!

I have been a little lazy today since I haven't felt good. It has been fun laying around with the cats all day! I have got to kick it into high gear the rest of the week!

Camp Scrap

I have been all excited about Camp Scrap! Then I woke up at 0430 on Friday morning with muscle aches, temp and chills. I took a couple of Advil and went back to bed. I woke up when the Advil wore off and too some more. I still went to Camp Scrap but it just wasn't as fun since I didn't feel good. I loaded up on Advil before going and was feeling okay till about 2200. The muscle aches were coming back and I just felt icky!!! I did learn some new things and enjoyed Camp Scrap and even won a prize!!! I got 8 cans of alphabet soup from k.i. memories, felt numbers and letters, and a date and number stamp! It was worth it even though I didn't feel good! I got home and took my temp. and it was 101.4!!! Yup, I am sick.

I really don't have time to be sick so I am hoping that I wake up feeling somewhat better. I have 5 chapters to read and study in my History correspondence class for an exam I am taking online Sunday. I can do it!!! I am determined to get this class done by the deadline to graduate!!

I am off to get some rest so I can wake up feeling better! At least I hope so.

It is getting closer . . .

to my graduation!!! I am keep trucking along on getting all my papers and studying done. I have hardly had any sleep the last week and so excited that I will be able to sleep tonight AND I don't have to get up early for anything tomorrow!!!! I got up early today for my second e-mar class. I was told from people who took the second class that things made more sense. Will, they don't!!! I just have more questions. My handheld today was telling me that meds weren't in my patients profile when they were on the computer put not my handheld. I would add the medication so I could give it to my "pretend" patient but then it would enter it twice in the computer. The week we go live with this at work, I won't be there as I will be doing finals and graduating. I am going to come back to work and be all confused and supposed to be a superuser at that!

I am excited that I got my research paper back today that I wrote on Ephesians. I got a 93%!!! I figured my grade and I have a 89% in the class. I hope that I am able to do better on the final and on the remaining quizzes to pull of an A! That would be awesome!! I am working hard at getting my history class all done. My American Government class is going okay. He has given up an opportunity of getting 20 bonus points but I haven't decided if I am going to do that or not. I have to decide fast as I have to email my teacher as he wants us to have it done by next week. I start my dreaded Capstone class next week. This is the 4 week class with 3 research papers!! I don't understand why they try to kill us like they do! I plan on these papers being the last research papers I ever write!!!

I am at the Mudhouse and they must have the a/c on as it is freezing!!! I left my house as it was too warm in my bonus room and now I am in coldness. I will just have to type real fast to keep myself warm! I have goal on getting my American Government notes typed and to maybe work on my quiz for New Testament for next week. I hope to at least get one chapter done in my History as my goal is to have all 5 chapters read by Sunday to take the unit 2 test. I am still waiting on my password to get into the test. If the school doesn't email it to me by early afternoon, I will be calling!!! I have to have this history course completed by April 30th or I won't graduate!! I am not about to let that happen!!!!

I had better get busy!!

Busy as a bee! BZZZZZZZZZ!

Okay, I have been a little busy lately and haven't taken time to blog. I really don't have time now as I have a research paper due by noon tomorrow that I need to write. I have two paragraphs done so it is a start! I just need 6 pages! No sleep for me tonight!!!

I hope by tomorrow evening that I will be able to share my CKC-St. Louis experience. I had a blast and would do it again!!! I really hope I can next year! I have something very exciting that might be happening around the same time so we will see how it works!

I had my American Government class tonight and I was surprised when I got my paper paper back that he only took off one point! He commented that I put thought into my paper. If he only knew I wrote it at work on my 15 minute break! I read the section of the book for the paper, took a few notes and then got into my email and started writing from the main ideas I wrote down. Then when I got home the next morning, I took that email, copied and pasted it into a word document and made a few changes and it was done! AWESOME!! I did pretty good on the test today too. I don't know my final grade yet but I missed 8 questions out of 40 which I am happy with! I just hope he liked my essay responses to the essay questions! I really like this teacher. He used to work with the government and tells some fun stories of when he was in Russia!

Okay, I need to really get busy on this research paper so I can get it done and hopefully get a few hours of sleep before class tomorrow! I can't wait till I graduate so I can sleep! :-)

Busy month ahead . . . . .

Wow!!! Is April going to be busy!!! I have so much to do for school this month and I might not be blogging as much! I really need to cut down on my fun internet time and get everything done. At the end of the month, I am going to be done with my History correspondence. I have got a game plan going to get this completed. I should also be able to get my puppy at the end of April! I am not sure how I am going to have time to get ready for the arrival of my puppy. I am making school my first priority so I can get everything done and graduate. Then I can have some fun!!! :-)

This Friday I am making a trip to St. Louis to attend CKC. I really feel like I don't have time for this but I am going anyway. I was planning on having my research paper done for New Testament. I do have my research done, I just need to sit down and write the paper. I am going to do my best to relax and not worry about school and enjoy myself. I feel like that is going to be a little hard! I am looking forward to some scrappy fun and meeting up with some friends!

Tonight, I am going to work on writing a short paper on what the proper role is of the president as commander in chief. I am having a hard time with that paper! I also am going to get two more chapters done for my history. I am hoping to take my first exam by Sunday. I hope it works out that way! I find it irritating that I can't just click into my exam. I have to email someone and tell what day I am taking the exam. They will give me a password so I can get into the test. I am sure there is a good reason for this but it is annoying!!! I guess it can take up to 3 days to get a password.

I got something awesome today!!! I got an email from my border rewards that I could get 40% off one book over $20. I thought of the Photoshop CS3 Bible book! I really wanted it but it was $40. I was able to get it today for $24!!!! I am looking forward in using this book.

I am off to get some studying done!!! I might have to back for my CKC trip as breaks from studying!
