Well the first week of online classes is complete. Sort of. Meaning that I did not get more then, some online reading done. I sent frustrating emails about assignment confusion and content not being available. I'm waiting on textbook deliveries, by the pony express (Canada Post). I had to pick a 6th course because one was not being taught this semester. I know they (registrars office) are busy but it helps to get this done earlier then a week before classes start. Yes, I'm a bit pissy but I hate doing things at the last minute. Let's not forget the wonky internet connection, from the storm earlier in the week. One minute pages are opening the next, nothing. Okay that was a great vent.

Even though I couldn't get the start that I wanted to, I've let it go and am using this "free" time to work on building nadiadonella.com and to get in some leisure reading.

On this months (possibly into October) reading list:
Be Careful What You Pray For: A Novel by Kimberla Roby
What the Nanny Saw by Fiona Neill
The Secret Life of a Slummy Mummy  by Fiona Neill
Angelopolis by Danielle Trussoni
Watcher of the Dark: A Jeremiah Hunt Supernatural Thriller (The Jeremiah Hunt Chronicle) by Joseph Nassise

New glasses. I love them! They are light, cute and the world looks sharp again.

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?
