Hola. Yay, I finished both of my essays last night. My computer restarted itself halfway through my art essay, though, and I lost an hour's worth of work. I was so pissed.
I took my healthcare midterm this morning. I scored and 83/100. Guess that's pretty good. I'm passing, at least. I have a C in my A&P class and I'm not really sure what I have in Microbiology, but I'm fairly certain that everything else is A's. Health might be a B. Dunno.
My CPR class is Monday. Boo. I don't get a holiday like the rest of the world. Good thing is, though, that I'm halfway through this nightmare of a semester. Yay, me.
Carlos gave me a comment. I didn't know if he still existed, it's been so long. Missed you, Carlos. How do you like my baby? Here's another one for you...

Procrastination, American Idol Style
Hello, all of my faithful subscribers...
So what do you think? Should I try out for American Idol next year? I'm taking a vote. If you don't know me personally, please, don't tell me I suck. It might hurt my feelings...
I am procrastinating my homework right now, something I SERIOUSLY should not be doing. I am so far behind I think I'm coming in first. Oh, wait! That's last semester's work I'm all caught up with! I'm such a loser.
My little girl Chloe has a hurt eye for the second time. Poor thing... She hates the drops I have to give her. Oh, for the record, I have no kids. Chloe is one of my Chihuahuas. I have a little boy also, named Tanner. They are the cutest. I love them to death.
Aced my math quiz last night, yay me. 100%. My A&P teacher is going to whup my ass tomorrow though. Well, maybe not. I did have the highest grade...
To answer your question John, I'm double dipping in the school ponds right now. I have micro, A&P and math with Pima, either online or at the community campus here in my crap town, and the rest of my classes are online through Rio Salado out of Phoenix. I'm planning on moving down there next semester, but haven't decided for certain yet. *shrugs*
Damn, my back hurts...
Kay, I'm going to try to figure out how to put pictures on this thing. Later, all.

I do have a crapload of archive, don't I? Just a packrat, me. I can't ever throw anything away. :)
We have titles now?
Wow... We have titles now. My blog is really moving up in the world. Woohoo! And I have comments. Thanks, Dave and John, for my first comments.
I've resurrected this blog mainly for the purpose of writing opinions about math articles for my MAT122 class. I have three artivcles so far that I will eventually be posting about in here. Aside from those, however, I'm afraid I'm not going to have much time for this thing. I have eight classes this semester (yes, eight), adding up to 21 credit hours of pure, unadulterated torture. I have no life anymore. Everything is homework... Everything. I spent I don't even know how many hours today on it. I just finished a math quiz and three chapters worth of reading in my art book. This morning I was studying my ass off for my A&P202 exam, on which I accomplished two things. One, I scored the highest in the class, and two, I only managed a 64%. How 'bout that?
Last night I was at my Microbiology class, reviewing for an exam I have tomorrow. I read a chapter in my art book yesterday, also, and finished my online labs for A&P. Tomorrow I have to do my lecture and quiz and essay for my "Diversified Healthcare Occupations" class, write a four page paper analyzing two different works of art, and study for my micro exam. Then Friday I have 12 modules (twelve!) to read for Psych 101, take two quizzes for each, and take my midterm for DHO. Plus I have class that day for A&P. Do I sound busy?
Just to break it down, here's what I deal with day to day.
Anatomy and Physiology 202 - Online lecture, ITV / online labs
Intermediate Algebra - Online lecture / quizzes
Introduction to Art - Online lecture
Diversified Health Occupations - Online lecture / essay
Psychology 101 - Online lecture / module quizzes
Microbiology - In-class lecture / lab
CPR - 1 Monday
First Aid - 1 Saturday
So, most of my classes are online, but that doesn't mean anything's easier for me. In fact, it makes it a lot harder, because I have to not only self-motivate myself, but teach myself as well. So far I'm doing okay...
This is the reason, however, that I no longer have a life.
I've also been made a squad leader in my new platoon, so I have four soldiers to keep track of and all of the paperwork and responsibility that comes with the position, and trust me, it spills over the whole one weekend a month b/s. I haven't seen my boyfriend for three days, and he lives ten minutes away. Going to the grocery store today was my break. Woe is me.

On another note, I watched American Idol for the first time tonight. Yeah, was really disappointed with the people whose entire lives were hanging on what the judges told them. So you didn't make it. Go home, get lessons, come back next year. I'm actually thinking of trying out myself, but it depends on how my nursing program is going. *shrugs*
And then there's Dave, who's engaged. Congradulations, dear, and lucky you. :-/ I'm just stuck in life, right now. Happy, I guess, but stuck.
Okay, I've GOT to get some sleep. Later.
