Tag Archives: College Semester

Classes start next week for me and I'm kind of hustling to get what I couldn't get done during the last 2 semesters, done during these 3 weeks. Have I been successful? Somewhat.

Not getting up at 4:30 a.m. Check

Reading for leisure. Check

Changing my volunteer hours. Check

Getting out of town for a few days, at least. Fail

Freezer stock up. Check

Taking Pictures. Check

Putting together recipes for this blog. Sort of, the pictures have been taken, but that's it.

Editing video. Fail, but mainly because I'm still trying to figure out the program. Premiere Pro CC is what I use. I've heard that Final Cut is easier, but Premiere has more customizable features.

Working on a business plan. A work in progress.

My puzzle. Fail, but I'm looking for a roll up mat, because I have no intention of finishing it in one session.

Writing. Added to one of my short stories. My book, not so much.

Anyone else back to school or at a new job? How are things going with you?

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!
