Turning it all in!

Today, I have my final class.  It’s all over.  I can’t believe it, seriously.  It’s so wonderful…  I feel like I have my life back.  I’m so exausted.  I think I’ll be sleeping a TON tonight! … [Read more...]

Falling behind…

So, for the first time in a very, very, VERY long time, I did not turn in a homework assignment on time. No where near on time. Actually, it was due last Wednesday. I just didn't have it in me to do it. Not that I really have it in me now. I've just about finished it, but I've got another one really due tomorrow. That one isn't done either. I don't know why I don't want to do my homework, but it's a bit irritating. I know what I need to do, and I don't know why I am adverse to doing it. … [Read more...]

I guess I’m not so bad at grad school!

The last class!

Tonight is my last class. That is for the one I actually go to. I'm so excited. I'm so ready for this semester to be over. I didn't realize how much work went into school. Ok, busy work. Most of the work wasn't difficult, but it didn't seem to have much of a purpose. Last week in class I had a very nice conversation with a graduate from the program. It put everything into perspective for me. I'm glad I chatted with her. Just think, 2 years from now, I'll have a masters. Wow. … [Read more...]

All the cute boys in the valley work at Yahoo!

Tuesday, I went to Yahoo! with my team for grad school to interview a instructional designer. I'm not really sure that the man we interviewed thought he was an Instructional Designer, but I think he manages people who put Instructional Design into use, and therefore will work for what we needed. I used to know about Yahoo! when they were small and had a building off of Central Expressway in Santa Clara, back in my AMD days. Today, Yahoo! has this HUGE campus over by Lockheed Martin on just … [Read more...]

one more thing…

Could ya'll not have so much to talk about when I'm up to my eyeballs with midterms & papers... It's too hard to keep up! God, I'm so behind. … [Read more...]

Getting the grades

So tonight I got the results of the midterm... and turned in the paper... I got an A on the midterm. I didn't really want an A to be honest. I really wanted to feel like I had something to learn. Hmph. Not. I know I know, I'm complaining about an A. It's just sometimes I wonder what I'm doing here. Now, I feel like I can't possibly fail the class, so why bother doing any more assignments. That's bad, right? Any one have any ideas about keeping motivated? Honestly, I'd really like to … [Read more...]

Ugg.  Grad School

I turned in midterm number two yesterday. At least this one didn't take me 16+ hours to complete like the first one did. This midterm required me to watch an educational television program and answer 10 questions about it. I think I watched the same episode of Knitty Gritty 10 times. Granted I love Knitty Gritty, but I tell you what, I think I know the pattern by heart now. Actually, I'm thinking of sending the materials to make the sweater to one of my secret pals. I've seen pictures of … [Read more...]


I've been putting on movies, first The Girl with the Pearl Earring, then Cold Mountain. During Cold Mountain, Daisy started barking. It was really cute. She was convinced there was something going on. Not. She's on drugs. The same drugs that are getting her up at 2:30 am every morning to get a drink, and at 4 to go potty. I think my Do is getting old. No more water after 10. I can't handle this getting up with her crap. But, I did finish one question of my midterm and I have the … [Read more...]

Do you know how much I don’t want to do my mid-term?

I'm watching "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton." That's how much. Damn. I need motivation. Daisy lying there on the floor relaxing isn't helping. She could at least play or something. … [Read more...]
