My semester started with a visit from Stephanie, two new classes, and lots of work. It has been a crazy three weeks. I have a grammar class and publication development class. I like both of them and they are almost completely opposite.
The grammar class is very structured, with deadlines, quizzes, and dates for everything. The publication development class is not. We spend our class times discussing articles, current events, and how all this relates to writing and publications. I love them both.
My daughter very kindly reminded me as I was telling her about one assignment that I was 30 years older than my class mates. She was right but it was one of those moments where I gave myself a mental shake of holy shit I’m getting old.
Stephanie is back for another visit – flying as she has another wedding to attend. We will get her for a bit on Sunday and Monday. She hung out with me Friday morning and we went to lunch with Beth. We are grabbing snatches of time where we can.
I finally finished a scarf that I was working on. It was a simple design and turned out beautifully but every time I worked on it I would fall asleep. Last night I finished it though and now I’m moving on to the next thing.
This weekend I’m swamped with homework, time with Stephanie and errands. The weather has turned a bit cooler – nicely nippy fall weather. This is good for breathing but it makes my arthritis complain.
I have thirteen more weeks to go and I’ll be done with my second degree!! I cannot wait. I have a long list of things I want to do once I’m done with school – crocheting, writing, reading… First though I have to get through the next thirteen weeks.
