I’m probably going to rant a bit right here, but you all know me well enough by now to know – I love me a good rant!
So the reason I haven’t had a chance to update this blog in over a month is because well the holidays happened (which was totally . . . weird, but more on that some other time) and then school started back. No big deal, this is now my fourth semester with a full load, so not only do I know what to expect, but I felt going into this semester (my last by the way) that I had this covered and would be good to go.
Will the depths of my naivety ever cease to surprise me?
Four classes. Four Senior level classes; two of which are required to graduate and have to be taken concurrently in the LAST semester before graduating. (WTF?!) Right? Ok, still in and of itself – no big deal, right?
All four of my classes require a lengthy research paper. Ok, still nothing for me to panic about, but one class in particular flat out said we could NOT use a recycled paper – ok, again no big deal, just have to buckle down and start working, [But FOUR different subject materials, FOUR Thesis Statements, FOUR Bibliographies and FOUR Abstracts; all in APA 6th Edition Format. (WTF?!)]
And as if that weren’t enough work two of the classes also have tons and tons of regular work to be done with deadlines etc . . . I mean I knew we wouldn’t have much of a life this semester but gosh – really?! The sad part is that I’m so overwhelmed by the thought of all these papers and the fact that one of them has to be over 70 pages long that I’m having difficulty focusing and diving in.
So to relax these days I’ve been cross – stitching. I’m so goofy; I love to just sit and breathe and keep my hands busy and my mind still; monotonously stitching. I guess I’ve grown tired of gaming.
Who am I kidding?! I will never grow tired of gaming. LOL.
I can just only handle so much Hay Day, Candy Crush, Marvel’s Champions, Bubble Witch Saga, Soduku, and Puzzles. I briefly got back into playing on the Xbox over the holiday’s but I know myself well enough that if I get hooked into a game there I will never get my homework done. At least with the phone or iPad Mini I can take breaks and not get sucked in.
At least that’s what I’m telling myself.
Only three more months and I’m done with school. I don’t even want to think about graduate school as yet, but I suppose I should. At least a little.
Work has been interesting. I was given the role of ISO internal auditor last week. I am already the document control for all things ISO, so I guess it makes good sense. In addition I still have to ensure that all the office IT works, that the website is up and running and that all employee documents are accessible through the employee portal, and take care of all things security related. It feels good to be busy. LOL. I love my job!
That’s all I’ve got on this dreary January Thursday.
Well there is this one thing . . . thanks to the beautiful wedding and engagement pictures that Southern Cotton Photography took, we were featured in a local magazine! How super exciting and weird is THAT?! Sharon Palmer can seriously rock a camera!
Best of luck to those of you literally snowed in up north and out west.
Kat of Team Devine outta here . . .
