What an incredible week this has been; insanely busy would be a great description. I have managed to all but work 3 weeks ahead in my studies, paving the way for a 3 week path to finish up my business plan which is due on April 13.
I have a fairly busy schedule this weekend. Keziah and I are attending her grandparents’ 60th wedding anniversary and I still have 4 papers that I need to – well, I’d like to finish up this weekend so I will be free and clear of papers in order to work solely on my business plan. I will try and post pictures of the festivities later this weekend.
Spring break begins April 13, so I will have some reprieve, but not much. I have my shadowing project due on the 27th – that’s the paper I’m writing on Brady, and then I have a career paper that’s due on May 5. That paper will be the third and last “big” projects that I have to finish for my classes for this semester.
Beginning in June, I’m taking a stress management class, ironically enough! That class is only 2 credit hours and will satisfy my PhyEd requirements of my degree for graduation! HooRah! I still have 5 more classes to take after that – 2 in the fall, 2 next spring and I’ll wrap up my business degree by taking 1 last class a year from now in the summer. By that point, it will be about 9 years since I first went back to school in 2000, and cumulatively 5 years all told for my associates, which honestly isn’t bad considering I’ve only taken classes part-time while working full-time. I give anybody who’s had to endure similar rigours mad props for their endurance.
Once my business plan is finished, I’ll begin to focus on my shadowing paper, which I’m really excited to work on. I’m going to present it in a very unique and different manner – something totally unconventional for a business class paper.
Lately, I’ve been having very topical and intriguing discussions about a number of national matters that I hope to develop into longer, more formal written works. I’ll digress from them for now though as it’s a bit past 1am and I’m in need of some beauty rest.
I’ll end on with this truly amazing and touching video from YouTube which has been viewed over 25 million times. Without a doubt you’re sure to have seen this before; however, if you haven’t you owe it to yourself to take a 5 minute break to watch the video. Hey, smokers get smoke breaks, right? Well, it’s time you took a non-smoke break.
