Back in the saddle again…

Yes, I know I have been neglecting this blog for months now but in all honesty, who is going to read this except for me? I might as well be writing this down elsewhere, away from prying eyes.

Anyhow, a lot has happened this passed few months. My last entry was written under duress. Since then, I am happy to report that the project in question was completed, handed in on time and received an A! Thank god that’s over! I almost enrolled in summer classes, but my wife took a promotion at work that moved us to another sity within the state. I was pleased for her, yet bummed that I had to quit my job (which I loved), change schools (which sucks), not to mention pack and move all of our worldly possessions (lame). Big summer that went by too quickly.

Enough about that. It’s boring. So, on to what’s happenin at school! I went back on the 18th. It seems really early but I am diggin the fact that I have nearly the whole month of December off. I went ahead and took 16 credits as I don’t have a job anymore (woohoo!). I have a lot of shitty projects to do this semester. I have a 10-15 min. presentation to do for psych; a 10-15 min presentation to do for Bio; and speech class on top of it all. It seems that my chem II class is the only one that I have just straight studying for. Oh well, after last semester’s insanely huge project that took up so much time and stress, what i have this semester will be a cakewalk. I am just having a hard time keeping track of due dates and assignments. I know I haven’t had a pargraph break in awhile, sorry. I am going to keep going though, this is a free flow, deal with it. I am really good at keeping a planner handy and writing things down, however, our college’s save energy inititiative has banned teachers from printing out handouts, instead, I need to log on to the school’s “blackboard” a.k.a. World’s Shittiest and Least User-Friendly Database, to look for the any assignment that the teacher may or may not post. The teachers are not required to let you know ahead of time should they post something one day and expect it to be turned in the next. Weak. A little forewarning would be nice teach! Knock on wood, I haven’t been burned by the system….yet. 

This school seems to run very differently than my last one. I am not sure that I like it. I got complacent   where I was. It’s always the little things that differ, isn’t it? For instance, over the past two semesters, some kind of paper was to be written in each class. Whether the class was math, history, or physical fitness, youo had to write something. This school, however, focuses on public speaking. Every class requires some kind of presentation. All the rooms at this school are always locked as well. WTF? What are we in third grade again? Are the teachers worried that chairs will be taken in between class periods? Someone will write naughty language on the board? We are adults here!

I don’t know. I’m glad to be in school, I really am. I just miss the other one. Only a few more semesters to go before I can move on to grad school.

In closing, I leave you with this, I know that all of the preceding was sloppy, unprofessional, and scattered. A lot of it was just my random thoughts manifesting themselves from a frustration of being, (for lack of a better term) stuck in a city that I despise. I realize all of this. If you are still reading, though I doubt anyone will read this drivel, I just want you to know that it was me that threw down the dook in your bathroom at your party a couple of years ago. You member! The one that caused the toilet to back up and flood the hall?
