One Down – One To Go

Just finished my last science test, I’m done with one class.  Next I need to finish my paper – have all the data; now I just need to write.  I can take my school books back to the book rental.  I am half done and will work on the other one tomorrow night. The end … Continue reading One Down – One To Go

End of Semester Craze Plus….

Vicki is moved and settled in to her new place.  She will start her new job Monday.  It was a long weekend of a lot of stress and work.  She has organizational things to do with her books and dishes but I think everything (or nearly) is unpacked.This week has been crazy with move stuff … Continue reading End of Semester Craze Plus….

She Got IT!!!!!

Vicki got the job!  Friday she was bummed by the time 4:00pm rolled around because Indiana is Eastern Daylight Time it was close of business hours.  She hadn’t heard anything and was on the downward slope of “why haven’t they contacted me” and “I must not have gotten it.” Yesterday we ran to do errands … Continue reading She Got IT!!!!!

Swamped and a Tad Bit Overwhelmed

Today I am going to work early so I can accomplish a couple of tasks early before others come in.  We – the department I work in – are moving so there are a lot of details to deal with.  Registration starts today so not only do I have to register for classes today but … Continue reading Swamped and a Tad Bit Overwhelmed

Balance

One of the things I struggle with most is finding a balance in my life.  I’m either too focused on work, school, or whatever and forget to take time for me.  This week I had a long to-do list for homework I wanted to get through.  It involved three chapters, videos, and labs for science, … Continue reading Balance

The last couple of weeks have been busy with school.  It is now spring break.  Friday at work was very quiet and I was able to clear my desk and organize my tasks.  I made a list – of course – and got several things crossed off that list because it was so quiet.  Next … Continue reading Spring Break

Another To-Do List

Actually it is probably two or three to-do lists at this point.  I need one for the basement as we have a crack in our foundation and we need to clean it and get it prepped to get fixed.  I’m pretty sure that is a long list of cleaning and reorganizing things.  Then there is … Continue reading Another To-Do List

New Semester

Tuesday classes start for my new semester of school.  I’m feeling ambivalent about both of my classes.  I am taking Geography 120 – Weather and Climate and English 378 Prose Stylistics.  Science is not my favorite topic.  I enjoy the ideas in science and the possibilities.  I’m not very good at the whole scientific learning.  … Continue reading New Semester

Scheduling

People ask me how do I manage to stay ahead of my schedule.  I usually answer very confidently it is a matter of scheduling.  Generally, I figure out what I need to get done, schedule it, and then do it.  Lately, I’ve not been as good at this.  I’ve been getting distracted by things not … Continue reading Scheduling

First Week

The first week back with all the faculty and students was, in a word, chaotic.  It was exhausting just trying to keep up with all the people and I still had to go to classes.  This semester I have two classes Manuscript Editing and Topics in Technical Writing – Grant Writing.  The Grant Writing class … Continue reading First Week
