First Week of School!

The first week of school has started! I'm two days into my class. A Nutrition class to boot! I'm still a little nervous starting again with this stuff. It's expensive! It's irritating how my 3 credit hour class costs almost as much as my 4 credit hour class cost me this summer! Those pesky building fees that they sneak in there. Not impressed. ;) It will be interesting how this pans out.

I thought I would be less stressed out because I wouldn't be so rushed. I'm not so sure about that now! My final grade is based on four exams. Non-comprehensive, but still! Four grades? 55 questions out of 50 points. (5 extra credit questions, so that's nice!) Some people would say that not having any homework is a blessing....but how do I study? There is a tutor and study session on Wednesday nights. I'm going next week to check it out.

On a happy note, yesterday was National Dog Day!! Here's an adorable picture of Kye with his bow tie! Bow ties are cool.

It's also throwback Thursday.

Gah!!! So cute.

New Semester!

Here we are, signed up for another semester. Currently, I am signed up for Biology II and Lab II plus a Nutrition 250 course. I'm probably going to drop the Biology. I do not want loans, nor do I need that kind of pressure while working full time! Just bought the book off of Amazon. I love them to pieces. They saved me $70. That's SEVENTY DOLLARS!!! Always a good thing.

Thank goodness I took Nutrition 100 during my last college stint. Here's to the second semester! Starting in August.

Also, work just got a LOT more boring.

Final Week!!

I'm finally at my last week of class. WOOT! Talk about exhausted. Which hasn't been the best thing for the Crohn's....but eh. Almost done! Then I can get my beautiful 9 hours of sleep a night! BTW, I am so screwed if I ever have children. Ha! SO screwed.

I have one more semester of Biology that is required. I'm signed up to take it next semester, but I'm not sure that's what I want to do. That class really burned me out! Maybe if I take a few nutrition classes next semester, I won't mind taking another biology class the semester after. Maybe.

Also, apparently you need a laptop for college nowadays? What? Why didn't anyone tell me that? Ugh. They are so expensive! I have a perfectly good working desktop at home! At least I have a little bit of time to think about that and go over my options before next semester starts up. $$$$ Someone told me I would NEED it for Chemistry. Crap.

I'm am happy with my grade in the Lab portion. We haven't received our final grades yet, but I like what I see so far! Yay! I may be freaking out just a tad for the final on Friday. We have our fourth exam (covers the last four chapters) AND we have the final that same day, right after we are done with that test. Study, study, study!!

New Beginnings

Hello!! Welcome to my tiny corner of the Internet! I am going through the process of earning my degree in Dietetics. Someday I would like to become a Registered Dietitian. I am so excited for this new journey!

I started class a few weeks ago. I'm taking Biology I and Lab. This class is no joke! Should have taken TWO Chemistry classes and labs before trying to tackle this beast! Oops. Way to jump into it with both feet after 8 years of no classes! It feels like I jumped into a swimming pool with no water! Yikes!

My dog is staying with my parents while I take this class. Between working full time and a summer class, I'm just not home enough! Tried it with Kye at my house for the first week. NOPE. He did fine, but he's a lab and very social. My house is very, very quiet now. I don't like it. The good thing is, I get visitations with him every weekend! Ha! Such is life.

That's enough for now. Back to studying and working. TGIF!
