Monthly Archives: January 2014

This week started roughly but it seems to be ending on a higher note. I won't say it's great, but I can almost, see the light at the end of the tunnel. One of my upcoming projects in my Multimedia class is pretty interesting. I do have to pull what I've learned from my other classes to make the project work, but I'm actually using one of my future business models in it. The combination of writing, photography, web design and animals of course. I wanted to flush this out in my spare time, and since I have none, this is a great opportunity. I know school is not always going to be interesting but this is only one of a few times that I've gone to class and have been excited about it.

Anyway I' working my butt off after school and on Saturday because I'm determined to have Sunday off. I need one day to breathe and not worry about what needs to be done. I might even go into the college on Saturday, if the weather isn't too bad, to do a little extra work. One of my professors has been kind enough to come in on Saturday for 2 hours to open up a lab and give help to anyone who needs it.

Tonight is also Spoken Word at the local art house. I will be going, although I'm pretty sure I won't be sharing any work. I can't tell you the last time that I wrote or edited a piece of writing. Which is one of the reasons why it's so important for me to get at least a day off from school work. The other creative parts of my life are suffering. Hopefully hearing other artists will give me the push that I need. Even a paragraph will do.

I really hate to come on here and just whinge, but that is where life is for me right now. It's reality and I'm doing my best not to sugar coats things, when in reality things are covered in a huge dose of cheap, white, vinegar. Well it seems as though the weekends, at least one day, are not going to be a time to rest, recuperate and relax. I don't know how that's going to turn out in the long run. Class time is not enough time for me to absorb the knowledge. If I'm going to be able to spit it back out, without flipping through a text book, or checking the help menu, I need to practice. Which so far means, class time, evenings, early mornings, most of Saturday and Sunday.

I pray that things come to me a little quicker. If not, I don't know what is going to happen. The projects are just going to keep getting more and more complicated. I'm waiting to get it and enjoy what I'm learning, as told by many, including my teachers, but again I don't know. I'm trying to stay positive and remember that I'm not a dummy, but the positive self-talk isn't kicking in, quite yet. Some classes make sense, but by the time the next one rolls along or when I have an assignment, the new knowledge seems to seep out of my head. I'll be raising my hand so often, eyes will start to roll, but I have to do everything on my end, to make this successful.

You may be happy to hear that Monday was a bit better, although very fast paced, but I made it through. I've also started my morning yoga again, which I hope will help get the blood flowing and my mind right. I don't know why I always stop. Wish me luck, send prayers, anything, that I have the strength to make it through, successfully.
