Like I talked about in my last blog post, today was the first day of school. It was pretty tough. I barely got enough sleep last night. I had a hard time falling asleep, staying asleep, and I tossed and turned a lot. Dang anxiety!
I need to review slopes for my math class. We just continue from where I left off from my last class. The teacher goes kind of fast too. I’ll be struggling this term.
I also found out that for one online computer class I need a laptop so I can do my homework on the go. I have a Linux laptop and a windows desktop. It’s not required, but it would be 10x’s easier if I had one. I also should’ve already taken the other computer class I’m taking, but it’s not required. This is going to be a fun term..
After class got out I went to the bookstore to get my books. I had to wait in line an hour before I could buy my book. That’s typical for the first week of class. Why do college textbooks have to cost so much?
I’m facing at least 30 hours of homework per week along with my 12 credit classes. On top of that I work. Why must I do this to myself? This is too difficult for me. I can’t handle this type of stress.
I’m not neurotypical. I have no other choice though. I’ve been forced to go t work because I’m no longer disabled enough for Social Security. I want to go to school for a better job than a cashier at Walmart, but it’s too difficult to work and go to school. Why does life have to shit on me so hard right now? Ugh!
Rant over, for now, sorry.
Thanks for reading! I hope you have a good day!
I had a pretty chaotic summer, for me at least. My store had a remodel, I transferred stores, I was always busy on my days off, I was barely home, and I never got enough sleep. Starting at a new store was chaotic for the first week.
I’m ready for things to calm down. Will they? Nope. Not now at school has started. This term I’m taking a math class on campus and two online computer classes. Why do I do this to myself?
I had a rough night. I got maybe four hours of sleep with lots of tossing and turning. My anxiety was running high. I wasn’t able to fall asleep, or when I did fall asleep I couldn’t stay asleep. I didn’t dress for the weather today. I thought it was supposed to be warm, but it’s cloudy, so I’m in shorts, a t-shirt, and flip flops. I’m sitting, waiting for class, cold.
I’ll try to make another post after I login and do my online classes later tonight.
Merry Christmas to those who celebrate Christmas! Happy Holidays who celebrate other holidays!
I am at my mom’s celebrating Christmas with my family. We’re having a good time.
Non Christmas related stuff:
Phew! The holidays have been crazy for me. It felt like all I did was go to work, go home and go to bed, and repeat. I was scheduled 30+ hours a week. I had one day of being completely lazy, on a snow day, but that was it. On other days I didn’t work I saw friends, but that only happened a couple of times.
I’m hoping that since my hours will be dropping I’ll be able to have more time for my Etsy shop. I still want to run my shop. Something I’ve learned about running my shop is to make my items, then sell them. Don’t do made to order, that is much more difficult to do.
I am trying a new craft and I’m hoping to be able to start making and selling items from that.
I got an A in my ASL class and a B in my writing class. Next term I’ll be taking ASL 202, Reading 115, and Math I think 60 something..
Thank you for reading my random ramblings. Take care!
I didn’t make a blog post in September. Oops.
September was super busy for me. Everyday I had something going on. Appointments, friends wanting to hang out, I’m going to be in my friend’s wedding so I had to get alterations done, crocheting, it just was super busy.
Not to mention that I accidentally left my iPad charger at my friend’s house, so I can’t use my iPad as much. I only get to charge it at my moms and I’m usually only there once a week for family day. That’s important because I only write my blog posts on the WordPress app on my iPad.
School also started September 26th. I am on campus twice a week and have an online class. I’m full time student again. It’s even more difficult to schedule time to see people in between classes and have time to do homework.
I noticed something. A lot of the times when I made a blog post I would do it when I was on the bus to or from school, or when I was trying to procrastinate a little more on doing homework. That’s not a good habit to get into because I felt I had less of a reason to post during the summer because I wasn’t commuting or procrastinating on homework.
I still want to keep up with my blog, I really do. I just need to do a better job at it.
Anyway, thank you for reading. Take care!
I accidentally took a nap today on my commute home from school. I made a mini vlog about it.
As I’ve said before I commute about two hours from home to school, and two on my way home. I ride the max as part of my commute. If you don’t know what the Max is, it is Portland, Oregon’s train that is similar to a subway, but is above ground and runs on the street. It’s pretty cool.
I tried making a vlog! I hope it isn’t boring and I’m not too rambly on there. Below the link to the video is the screen shot that I talked about from Pandora.
So, once again, I’m finding it difficult to keep with my goal of posting every week. School has just started and I’m a full time student again this term with 13 credits and a lot of homework. I don’t want to give up though. I still want to pursue making and selling things, but time doesn’t seem to want to be on my see this term. I will try hard though.
