Senioritis's been forever since I posted anything about school.  It's been a crazy couple of semesters.  Spring semester of 2013 was interesting in that I took the hardest class I've ever had-and came out without any scars.  It helps when you have an exceptional instructor-and that I did.  If you've ever taken a methods class, you know there is math involved, plus logic, plus writing, plus research, plus computers. For the record, I am allergic to most of those things.

Found out as I prepared to register for Spring 2014 classes that I am now classified as a Senior.  Who knew?  I've been in college for....well...almost 4 years.  With the exception of the requisite trip to Cancun and the pot smoking, I'm a real college student.

I'm about 25 hours away from a 4 year degree. Something I've wanted as long as I can remember.  I am ridiculously excited about that prospect...but anxious too.  I'm 46 years old and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up...and I'm running out of growing up to do.

Thanks as always for reading.

The hell with dain bramage!!!!  I made a 4.0 this semester!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Can you tell I'm excited? 

Ok, so I realize that three of the classes were 1000 level and one was a 2000 level, but only covered about 100 years in history...but dang it, I did it.  It was tough, but I'm one proud chica.

This post is short and sweet. Taking one summer class as of right this sec. Second summer, and it's a Women's Studies class that I am greatly enjoying and so happy I've made it my minor.

Hope everyone is doing well-thanks for all the well wishes and the encouragement. You don't know what it has meant.

Back to the grind?

Made it!  It's almost March and I've made it two months so far. Not been easy. Little disappointed in my grades. I'm tough on me and I expect A's.  So far, no A.  Tomorrow might be different. Had two exams last week so I find out tomorrow what the damage is.  Wish me luck.

Ready, set, go?

Well...I'm signed up.  Full load.  12hours.  And n-er-v-o-u-s.  What if my note taking skills have gotten bad?  I've always been really tough on myself and gotten good grades.  I pay attention.  I sit in the front.  I listen to the instructor.  Now I'm worried that it will go too fast.  That I won't understand, that I won't be able to keep up.  I feel like I'm psyching myself out and that everything will be fine...but what if it won't?

Hasn't been too long since my last entry-but great news for this college girl-I'm going back to school for the spring semester.  Go the ok from the neuro yesterday to drive.  Funny thing is, I had already talked to the hub about returning even without her ok to drive.  There is a bus here...I've seen it. Hello CATS of Charlotte.  Or, night classes. Get someone to drop off and someone to pick up.  I need to get educated so I can get a great job that I'm going to love!

So, short and sweet. I'm emailing my advisor to let her know I am back in business and to hook me up with some great classes for the spring.  Now, if I can only remember my way around campus....

Fall already

October 1st. Still not driving, still not in school, still bummed out. I am not going to go back and correct any sepelling mistakes in this blog. Trying to see where I ca and where I will be in a few motnhs. Still getting better every day.  This whole brain damage thing blosw chunks. My fingers and my brain don't want to cooperate. Ok, I've made a couple of corrections. Just can't sta nd to see the mistake.s  Anyway, improving every day-my motto has been better every day. Finally made the decision to contact an attorney after I realized I didn't know a whole lot more that I thought. Sitting on my bed at 8:02.  Stout is at Oktoberfest-I have a nasty upper resp infection, so I've been hanging at the house all day-resting, and watching television. Wasting more brain cells.  Wish me luck-I am so ready to be out of here-at least that is what I think. Who knows what the neurologist will tell me. :-)

No school for me this fall. Saw a neurologist. She said no driving til the dizziness stops. I've had a couple of procedures done in therapy to help stop the dizziness. Have one more appointment and hopefully that will be the end of it. Have one more speech therapy. Now I have PT on my right hand. I hit it on something during the accident, nothing broken, but wouldn't heal. Saw an orthopedist today. He seems to think I may have torn the muscle in my right hand between my small and ring finger. Wouldn't be such a pain.....but guess who is right handed?

Enjoying the time with the grandson-getting to know him and his routines. He gives the best hugs and has the sweetest smile. He likes to follow me down the hall and come in Gigi's room.

Hoping that the short term memory loss will abate and so will the trouble with my speech before long. I'm excited about school and sad that I'm missing this semester.
