Tag Archives: Back to School

Well it's the start of week 2 and I'm pretty sure I'm the only female in all of my classes. I'm still deciding if I care, but really I'm leaning towards not caring. The only competition at this point is with myself.

Lessons learned and things to remember throughout the rest of this school year:

* Stop over thinking everything. I tend to do this in life as well. Some things are really, that simple. I'm working on it. I spent the entire weekend, working and stressing over an in-class assignment that was not only simpler then I thought, but over and done with in 3 minutes. Yeah, grey hairs for nothing.

* Ask for help. I have been doing this, but not enough. Who cares what other people think. I'm here to learn and that involves a lot of questions. If I don't understand what is being taught or I'm lost in the middle of a lesson, I'm doing myself no favours by sitting there and saying nada.

* Realise that I'm not the only one who is lost or doesn't understand what is being taught.

* Lastly, have a nap on the weekend. At least one. I don't remember the last time that I had one. I don't have any kids to run after, so why not! Have a great Tuesday & if your neck of the woods is experiencing another cold snap, stay warm!


Till next time,



Well my first week back to school was kind of good, but kind of a hot mess. Some classes seem like they are going to be manageable and enjoyable. Others seem like they are going to give me a plenty of grey hairs, crows feet, and even more acne. Talk about a week of self doubt. Seriously, it was pep talks to myself all week long.

But anyway, I have this opportunity so I have to remember my end goals. Moving, better and more job opportunities, etc. I can do this, I'm not stupid or dumb. I may have to study or work at a lesson, several times before it sinks in, but I know I will understand it and be able to implement it.

I also haven't done anything creative in such a long time. I really have no energy. No writing, crochet, knitting, even snapping pictures. I can't wait until my writers group starts up again. Although it's only going to be once a month, instead of once a week. I guess time will tell whether that's good or bad. I am slowly getting through the 3 books that I borrowed from the library, so I guess that can count as a creative outlet.

Anyways, today is a new day. I slept in a little and feel better. Although after I practice a few of my lessons, a nap may be in store. Enjoy your Saturday, I will do my best to enjoy mine!
