Okay so here’s the scoop. I know I whined and moaned and groaned and was generally a pain in your tushes last year while going to school, dropping classes, adding classes, and generally trying to figure out what the heck I was doing. But you have to remember I was feeling so bad with my back that it seriously impacted my ability to think clearly, and a graduate degree requires clear thinking (plus lots of money…please feel free to send me some).
I managed one class last fall but that was all I could handle. Now that I’m feeling a little more chipper I’m going to take another run at this degree and I’m hitting the harder topics first – Systematic Theology. Even though class doesn’t officially begin until Monday, I have been spending tons of time preparing notebooks, outlines, and reading textual material, highlighting in different colors and all that fun stuff where you get to use lots of cool office supplies. Office Depot so loves me.
I have to cut back on a few things in my life for the next 8 weeks. Thankfully most of the tv I watch is very close to the season finales (Lost, Fringe, Survivor and a few others) so that frees up some time. Unfortunately, I won’t have much time for fun reading so don’t expect my Reading Lists to change significantly any time soon! LOL It’s hard to get through an entire book when you only read about 10 minutes before drifting off to sleep at night!
I have already announced to my Twitter buddies and my Facebook friends that I’ll be there but not as often. I HAVE to say Good Morning; that’s a given, but the evening ‘tini party silliness will have to do without me. Sorry Sueanne, @DebbieDeeNJ , and @auntchrisbronx – even @GoldenDestroyer will be cutting back on her Tweets (hmmm, wonder why?) And here I was thinking (brought on by an idea of my friend Chris) of giving EmmaLou her own FaceBook page. Maybe after school.
I will try and post here as often as I can but am taking the next week off to get into the routine of school for that first week and get my schedule working. After that, when I can, I will post something hopefully to make ya’ll smile. In the meantime feel free to peruse the archives and see if you can rustle up a grin or three while I’m hitting the books.
See ya l8r….sigh.
