What's Left of my Sanity

I have been slacking BIG TIME on my blog lately. Finally figured out why. Papers I've had to write have been more demanding than they were in the past. By the time I'm done with them I am wiped out! No desire to write anymore whatsoever. So it's beyond difficult for me to come on here and crank out a post. I've been cutting out things that have added to my stress level so I won't feel so overwhelmed trying to fit everything in. Which means I'm going to stop posting for a while. Just until things calm down for me. It sucks having to say that, but I need to save what's left of my sanity  so I can focus on getting my degree finished with. It's not goodbye forever, just for right now. I'll miss y'all! Ta ta for now :-(

Daylight Savings

Oh it's that time of year again. Time to lose an hour of time. I'd love to know who's idea it was to do this whole Daylight Savings thing anyways. One of the many things I love about technology is not having to reset my clocks. Used to be a pain having to run all over the house checking every clock. Microwave, TV, VCR, radio, alarm clock, watch.....annoying.

Funny Reminders Ecard: Thanks for reminding me to change my clocks that change themselves.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest LOL! Time for me to finish my first paper of the semester. Comparing domestic violence beliefs between the U.S. and four other countries. Decided to give myself a break and play one of those hidden object games and let my brain take a rest from my note taking session. After the things I read my brain was very happy to have that break. It's a sad sad world we live in. Soon as I'm done writing I'll treat myself to The Walking Dead, Once Upon A Time and Revenge.

Back to the Grind

I think it finally just set in that I'm a senior in college. This isn't something I thought I was going to be able to say considering my history. Right out of high school I was talked into going to this school I had no interest in. Friends of my mom worked at the school, they said it was a good school and I would be well taken care of. Fast forward to 6 months after I've been enrolled: switched majors twice, had a breakdown thanks to the stress of dealing with the jerk I was dating at the time. So I packed up and left that school. Apparently departments don't communicate well because they had no clue I was gone until 3 months after I'd left. Mind you my mom and I went through the process of filling out all the necessary paperwork for me to leave the school.

Took some time off and decided to go to culinary school. That was a mistake. I have no desire to live that kind of hectic lifestyle. Missing birthdays,  holidays, not being able to spend time with your family. I struck out with my first two schools so when I started at Kaplan I decided I'd do everything to make sure this wouldn't be strike 3. Which is why I'm so happy I've made it this far and the finish line is getting closer every day. My expected graduation date is 12/24/ that's what I call a Merry Christmas!

Anyways, I've started working ahead a little on my first project which looks like it'll be a doozy. Should be an interesting semester though. I've got great professors again and that makes seminars so much better. Plus the topics are really interesting, domestic violence and organized crime. Well time for me to get some work done. I'll try not to be too scarce but school comes first.
