I took my management final and turned in my peer review for the humanities class, so I am finished! I suppose this is my spring break, then. All the way ’til Sunday, when the next classes start.
I can’t talk about the presentation. I might have flashbacks. The fact that BOTH my classes that start next week have group projects is NOT giving me a happy. However, I did read Kelly Armstrong’s latest Women of the Otherworld book, Personal Demon, yesterday, and then Dana Stabenow’s Prepared for Rage today. They were good.
The girl and Sam both had busy weekends. Katie went out Friday and Saturday, playing D&D with friends first, then going to a party with her sweetie during my and Sam’s date Saturday night. Sam had a computer to deliver Saturday morning, then ran around picking up some things. He went out again yesterday, to […]
From David Crystal’s book The Fight for English: How language pundits ate, shot, and left, by way of Delancey Place. In spelling, the [English] language was assimilating the consequences of having a civil service of French scribes, who paid little attention to the traditions of English spelling that had developed in Anglo-Saxon times. Not only […]
I just found out that DeVry didn’t “package” my financial aid for this semester. Huh? I registered the day registration opened, or nearly so, as I recall. I wasn’t scheduled to graduate. I did everything I’m supposed to do, in fact. Somebody there just dropped the ball. Why isn’t that sort of thing automated so that […]
I finished up week 3 of the semester, which means that we’re almost at the halfway point. I really, really want to get done with both classes this semester. I’ve had to drop the management class twice in the past, and I’m tired of it! The humanities class isn’t that bad, other than the “My Country […]
Somebody help me, please! I’m awash in a sea of stupidity. My humanities classmates are full of ideas like: “it isn’t really that big of a deal unless you have something to hide”—“it” being government surveillance. “…they won’t target you or really care about what you are doing unless you are doing something wrong”—tell that to […]
I’ve got to stop this. I keep procrastinating each week, so I end up with a bunch of homework to do on Sunday. Blah. I know perfectly well that I shouldn’t do that because I can’t count on being able to focus on any particular day. I even advised other students with FMS against procrastinating, […]
A week into the Spring semester, I finally got my Winter semester grades: 99.7 in the career class, 97.6 in the project management class. I should still have a 4.0, then. I’ve got to get my and Katie’s FAFSAs done. I should have already done it. It feels so weird to think about the fact that […]
