Wednesday again...

Ahh, Wednesday. That middlest of days. It inspires me to, um, yeah, it doesn't inspire me at all. Classes were good today. I'm now preparing to eat my lunch in the library (which isn't really its intended purpose, but oh well) and then get my homework done. Not a lot of it, mostly reading.

So far things are going very well. Found out today that my English prof is, if not younger, then very close to my age. I kind of knew that, but it's nice to have confirmation that I'm an old lady. He wears comic book t-shirts and wants us to call him Josh. "Mr. Webster is my dad." Other than that, he's good.

My Logic class is going well, too. That prof (whom I've had several times before) inquired today if I was planning a major in Philosophy. I told him no, but only because I would have to start at the very beginning and probably add at least 3 semesters on to my degree. I'm tired of this crap and want to graduate. I think he likes having me in class because I argue with him on a regular basis. Unfortunately, Logic isn't really an arguing kind of class. It's about arguing, but the rules are pretty much set in stone with not a lot of wiggle room. So arguing about arguing is not really possible. Bummer.

Talked to my brother a bit last night and he reminded me that his son will be here in about 3.5 weeks. How scary is that? Becky is doing very well, though, so that's great. The OB guesses the little fella will be in the mid-nine pound range. So, actually, not so little. I'm really bummed that I won't get to see the little critter until Christmas, but it can't be helped. I don't have the funds for a plane ticket and a 13-hour drive doesn't really work for a weekend trip. I guess that's what Skype is for, right? I just hope his other aunties don't try to horn in on my territory. They all have other nieces and/or nephews to hang out with. This one's mine. Here's the latest belly pic:

Well, I should eat so I can take my pills so I can do homework. Pills aren't directly required for homework, but without them I become funky and gross so homework isn't really possible anyway. If anyone is thinking that Medicare and Medical Assistance (which is what Medicaid is called in MN) are an unnecessary luxury, come to my house and see what my prescriptions would cost without them. Then vote accordingly. Anyway, have a great Thursday and I'll see you soon! TTFN!!


Monday, Monday

So, day 3. First Monday. All is well. I am actually quite proud of myself today because there's no one at home but me. I had to get up and get ready and get here in time with no prodding. It may not sound like a big deal, but for me it kind of is. I'm not too great with the self-motivation sometimes. OK, most of the time. I appear to be doing better at the present. Which is good, obviously. Especially since the parentals will be gone for several weeks starting in the end of September.

As far as school, first assignment in English is due Friday, and it sounds like there will be one due in Logic as well. The English assignment is an email, so it shouldn't be too taxing. We'll see about the Logic assignment. So far I'm keeping up on the reading, so that's good. That's all for today, see you Wednesday! TTFN!!


Another Friday bites the dust.

Well, made it through another day. I actually think it's going to be a pretty good semester. I think I have the whole timing thing to get there not too early but not late, either. So far the homework doesn't look like it will be too crazy for either class, so that should keep my stress level down. For now, though, I'm going to bed early so I can go to a birthday party for my aunt tomorrow. I have to make an appetizer. I can't decide what. Oh well, I'll figure it out in the morning. Have a great weekend, everyone! TTFN!!!


I know, I know.

Yep, it's been a while. I'm fairly sure no one even checks this anymore, and who can blame them?

However, it is a new day and a new semester. I have decided I'm going to be liveblogging (so to speak) my final semester of college. I'm hoping it will give me some accountability as far as going to class and help me stay on task so I can finally flingin' flangin' graduate. So, theoretically I should be posting here 3 times a week. I've decided that if I can keep my car clean for 2 months I can surely manage to blog a few times a week.

Anyway, today was day 1 of both of my classes. My first one (at 9amgasp!) is Traditional Logic, which I am actually quite excited about. Since Mr. Spock is my idol I think the class will serve me very well in all future endeavors. The professor is one I've had several times before and I always enjoy his lectures. He has a very dry sense of humor and likes Star Trek. And he's kind of arrogant about his intellect, which I appreciate.

Class 2, which I am not excited about at all, is Business and Professional Writing. It's required, which is the only reason I'm taking it. However, the professor seems pretty cool, so hopefully that will make it suck less. I'm also pretty sure I'm several years older than him, so I can always just call him a whippersnapper and hope he takes pity on an old lady.

Well, that's all for today since I didn't learn anything but where the classes are held and what the syllabus will be. I will be back on Friday, so stay tuned for more thrilling escapades.TTFN!!!!

(On a pervy old lady note, basketball shorts are just swell.)
