Well,I am definitely a student for sure now!! I spent most of yesterday with my nose in the books. I see my future for the next 16 weeks and it is not pretty. I am taking four classes this semester, which I think the hardest will be the medical terminology class. I don't think it's a good thing that I have experience in the field because now I have to throw out all that I know and start from scratch regurgitating information the way that my professor wants it to come back out. It's all good though. I know I can do it. I just have to keep repeating that phrase.
I am also taking Introduction to Womens Studies, which I think I will find very interesting. I enjoyed reading the first chapter and even read the extra articles in the back of the chapter. Tomorrow I will post on the discussion board my thoughts, which I know I will have no problem with as any of my readers are well aware of by now if you read any of this blog. I think I may post some of my discussions on here as well just to get some feedback. I think this class may give me some insight to my own issues that I have posted about in the past. The first chapter has already been very thought provoking. We shall see.
The other classes that I am taking? English Composition, of which I had taken years ago and now I have to take again since it had been so long, and Developmental Psychology. The English class doesn't start until the end of October and the psych class will start the end of September. Hopefully, I will have a good study pattern started with these first two classes and will not feel as stressed when those two begin. At least that is what I am hoping for.
Everything else around here is pretty quiet. I have a quarterly meeting at Butch's facility tomorrow and I really don't see anything changing in that way. He has had some issues the last few weeks with additional weight loss, problems falling and a decline in general. It seems to go that way. A leveling out, then a decline, then leveling out again. Our twentieth wedding anniversary is next week and I have been thinking about that quite a bit. It is very bittersweet to say the least. I have something in mind that I would like to do for the blog but I don't know if I will have time to pull it together. I would like to do a slideshow of our wedding pictures and have it set to "our" song. I think he would have liked that. I would have never dreamed that things would have turned out the way they did but there is nothing that I can do about that. Hindsight is always 20/20. Maybe we were meant to go through these trials in life for some reason. I don't know and I can't spend too much time thinking about it or I will drive myself crazy.
Well, even though it is late, I am going back to do a little more studying. Perhaps it will make me sleepy. One can always hope.....
