Oh man I have been so busy. School has started again. I have five classes and I’m taking them all online. Math, Macroeconomics, Accounting, a computer class, and English lit.
I have so much stuff to read in Lit. It’s ridiculous. I’m already behind. I just finished Beowulf and now I’m reading Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. After that I have to read a lot more stuff, write an essay, and take a test. It all needs to be done by the 21st.
I was really behind in my Computer class. Not because it’s hard but because I couldn’t install Microsoft Office 2007. I need that to do the class. I think I got ripped off by a website. They were selling Microsoft Office for a lower price than on the Microsoft website. I thought it was legitimate because I got the site from the schools website. I was so mad. I just went to the Microsoft website and downloaded a 60 day free trial.
I’ve only had time to read three chapters in Economics. I think my first test in that class is on the 16th. I have a research paper due at the end of the semester. I hate doing research. These are the instructions I have to follow.
Write a research paper on the current financial crisis using MS Word. The report will be organized with a Title Page, a Statement of Purpose, an Outline, the Presentation (or Body) and a short Summary and Conclusion section. The Presentation, or body, will be five pages minimum, single spaced, 11 font size. What are the causes and effects of the crisis? What are the solutions for the crisis? Is the Federal Government taking the correct actions?
Five pages! Fuuuuck.
I kind of glossed over accounting and Math. I think I’m going to do some work on both today
On top of all that work I have a new puppy. I’ve had him since the 23rd. His name is Rudy after the dinosaur in the latest Ice Age movie. Supposedly he’s a mixer of Chihuahua, Poodle, and Pekingese so he’s going to stay small. He is so cute! I’ll try to upload some pictures of him soon.
I’m trying to crate train him. At first he hated it but it was partly my fault. The first night I got him I put him in the thing and he hollered all night. I thought he was just going to like it. That was pretty stupid of me. The next night I said fuck it and let him sleep in the bed with me. I did that for a week so he would get use to me and gradually got him use to the crate. Now he likes it.
This is off topic. I'm seriously thinking about buying a kindle. I have no more room in my apartment for books. I’m hearing great things about it. If anyone has one, tell me how you like it.
I'll be 25 tomorrow! YAY
First of all let me say that my favorite, Brandon, didn't win So You Think You Can Dance and I'm heart broken. I love him and I hope he has a great career from here on out. Oh and another thing. I love The Real Housewives of Atlanta. I love the drama.
It’s been a really long time since I've been on here. I haven't had anything to write about. I've mostly been reading, playing games (I got a PS3 back in June) and hanging out with family. Nothing special, Just relaxing and enjoying the summer.
I'm a little disappointed in myself. I haven't lost weight. I keep going up and down but never more then 3 to 4 pounds. I going to change my eating a little and add more cardio. God I hate cardio. I would really like some workout DVD’s to use when I'm not able to go to the gym. If anyone has some good suggestions then feel free to share.
I'm getting ready to start school again. I plan on taking 5 online classes this semester. I'm just waiting on financial aid. That should be settled by the 24th. Classes start on the 21st but I'm not going to get into that.
That’s all I have to say for now.
Oh dear lord I have heartburn. That’s why I’m still up. I wish the meds I took would hurry up and kick in.
Nothing interesting has happened lately. I’ve been slacking on my school work but that’s nothing new. I’m still going to the gym. I’ve been stuck around the same weight for a few weeks now. It’s really frustrating. The weather has been nice now. I’m ready to do some spring cleaning. My apartment looks like crap.
Other than that I’ve been reading. I’ve just finished Angels' Blood by Nalini Singh. I’ll write about it in another post tomorrow maybe. I’m half way through White Witch, Black Curse. I’m feeling a little disappointed about the book so far. Usually I get absorbed in the Hollows books but not this one. I’ve been reading it off and on for almost two weeks now and it usually takes me a day or two to finish one. I think it’s the whole banshee plot line. And Marshal is so freaking boring! Ugh I wish Kim would just write him out of the series. Hopefully she will. I want to see more of Al. I like him. Maybe the book will get more interesting. I really hope it dose.
