Semester 2 is over and I'm doing my best to relax and enjoy it, while catching up on all things neglected. My back is pretty much back to my normal, so I have resumed dog walking. I was so happy to see one of my favourites was adopted and gone to her new home. There are so many dogs and cats available. If you're looking please check out your local Humane Societies & rescues, because I'm sure they are all in the same boat.


Thoughts on this past semester. Hopefully this won't come back to bite me in the future. This was a tough semester for me because it included a lot more coding, then the first semester. Something that is new to me. HTML, PHP, CSS, a tiny bit of JAVA script. There is still so much to learn and it is daunting at times. But I have no choice but to move forward and just do the work. That has been a mantra of mine these last 2 semesters. There was/is no time to moan about how I don't understand something, I just had to keep going. My final projects, well 3 of them were not to my liking at all. I had these perfect projects in my mind and they did not turn out the way that I had planned, at all. They more then fell apart at the end. So yeah, for myself I need to redo them. I still wake up thinking about them and what I could have/should have done. That is beyond irritating and it's stressing me out. I'm also still waiting on the last 2 grades out of 6. I should know by the end of the day.  Not helping with the relaxing that is supposed to be occurring.

I'm off to walk some friends (hoping that the rain holds off until I get back home), do some reading and who knows what else. Enjoy your weekend!

Till next time,


After today, there are 2 more weeks until semester 2 is done. I can not wait for the break, but at the same time there is still so much to learn.  I see great opportunities coming my way and I'm not so unsure of the future. I've been given great opportunities and I am determined to make them work for me.


I also can't wait for the break because I can pull my book out and hopefully finish my editing. I will get it sent out to publishers this year. That is on my to-do-list, for 2014. I'll also try to get back to my short stories. I have a quite a few story lines, on paper that need to be flushed out. They are spread out over a few genres, but that's how my life is. I like a little bit of everything and I have to say a lot about everything. Real life, fictional, horror/supernatural etc.

There will be no dog walking for me this week. My back is over life. I have no idea what I did to it, but at least it's not as bad as last summer, when I was immobile, along with the pain. Small blessings, I guess. I've been bringing my heating pad to class all week with zero embrassment. Plugging it in the wall, turning it up to high and doing my work. If I didn't there would be no way that I could sit in all day. Electricity is great. Oops on me. Finishing this post at school and I forgot the damn heating pad at home. Will power will be in charge  today.
