Don't ask me why I'm wasting my time blogging, when I need to finish an assignment, and put my pack together for the new class that starts today. I guess I just need a "warm up"!
Last week was spring break at UNM...I had all these plans of organizing and catching up with note taking, and I didn't do any of that. I justified it by telling myself that I really did need a break before the craziness of the new class starts. I might kick myself later, or be glad I took that little break. Seriously, today is the first time I've turned my computer on for a week.
And the computer was a bit snarky this morning too.....I think I forgot to turn it off, and put it on sleep because the intention was that I would be getting back to it soon. So, the battery was down to nothing and it always takes awhile to come on when I do that....it's never intentional, but it happens once or twice a year.
Feeling a little foggy....
Although I have been trying to be mindful about maintaining a certain level of activity, I do have an annoying issue lately....my right ear is plugged up, and has been for about 4 days now. I have been noticing that I have been developing a bit of tinnitus, it is louder in the plugged up ear. Which is probably allergy related, but geez, I wish it would open up already...it's driving me nuts, and I can't hear as well. Suppose I will sit toward the front of the class today so that I can hear what the prof. is saying.
I did find two classes I can take this summer, which is the semester I was most worried about. There just aren't as many classes available, and I do want to continue with my goal of two classes per semester. One class is every Friday, so, without saying anything to anyone at work, I quietly put in for two Friday's off (I'm already off every other Friday). The only class I can't make it to is the last one. I figure I will let the professor know after 2 weeks, and make sure I can submit any assignments due that day early. Of course, this is assuming that I will get into the class. I've noticed that 3 credit classes that are "short" (like the history class that starts today, which is 8 weeks instead of 16) are really popular. So, there's always the possibility I won't get in. All I can do is try, and then make plans if I don't.
Otherwise, things keep rolling along. Romeo is really happy to have his spring break this week. I know he has a list of things to do (and none of it is from me), but I figure he will do about half of it. He's always underestimating how long it will take to get things done....don't we all??
If you're on spring break, enjoy!
