The only reason that I'm excited that's it's Friday, is because this Monday is Family Day in a few provinces in Canada. Ontario being one of them. I'm thankful for that and am going to enjoy it. I've learned to take advantage of Government/Federal/Provincial days off, because I have the law behind me to say, I need a damn break! I know that I'll be working on school stuff for the rest of today and all of this weekend. I plan to get caught up and comfortable with where I am, in school, if it kills me. Okay, that's a bit dramatic but I think you know what I mean. There's no point in taking this program if I can't teach someone, with near perfection, everything that I've learned. At least that's the way that I feel about it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI did finally finish, 1 of the 3 books that I borrowed from the library. Who Asked You? by Terry McMillian, 2013. It took me weeks to finish it because if I do have any time to read my eyes are burning from exhaustion, so it's a constant, "I'll read another chapter tomorrow," deal.  So I'm hoping that I can get another head start on book 2 of 3, (Heartbreak Hotel by Deborah Moggach, The Widow Waltz by Sally Koslow). Maybe watch a movie, or keep working on my book forward. Which by the way has been thrown way back out of my minds eye. I knew I would be busy with school, but I underestimated the workload by a lot. My first book schedule is months off and I have to find a way to get it back on track. I'm still trying to figure that one out, since school really has no end for me. Anyway, I'm off, I have a courses calling me. Have a great weekend and Family Day, if you get the day!

On a Saturday. Issues with Windows 8, that I'm fighting to figure out. I'll eventually understand it, but the process is a lesson in patience and keeping my cool.

I just found out that my school program doesn't start until the 13th, so woo-woo for me. This gives me time to get back to a decent bedtime. Over the Christmas holidays, I've been seeing too many early am sleeps. I can also use this extra time to try and get more familiar with the Adobe programs that I'll be using in my program. Some of those will be challenging, I can tell already. But I'm trying not to stress because as long as I go to class, study, ask questions and repeat, I will be just fine.

I will also be doing some serious reading. Stopped at the library Friday morning to exchange some books. The weather is icy cold. The wind chill is making Winter, not so pleasant. The wool socks just did not cut it, and that was only a short walk from the car to the library. At least the sun is shining and we didn't get that much snow, compared to many other places around the country.
