Soup, Sewing, School, Scared, S**t.
I am so lazy lately but I know the reason why. It's because I'm going to school on Thursday and I am trying to enjoy as much laziness as possible before my life gets turned upside down again. I have four classes this semester, two on-line, and two at the downtown MATC campus. The Internet courses include a class on modern cinema,
and African American History.
I'm really hoping that I'll be able to take care of those classes easier than what everyone says on-line classes are like (harder than in person classes). My theory for these classes is that I sit at work 5 days a week on the computer for like 4-5 hours. I would be able to get a lot done here at work instead of at home.
My other classes are Sociology, and my second remedial math course before college math. Blah. I'm having some anxiety about my second math course because what if I forgot how to do any of the math I did last semester. I haven't even looked at a math problem since May. What if I get lost in the first classes or have to be sent BACK to 1st math. I can tell you right now, I am not paying to take these classes over again (about 1200.00). If I can't get it (first I'm going to try like mad, and get crazy amounts of free tutoring), but if they tell me I have to get sent back or whatever than I'll need to change my major into something that does not require college math. I don't want to do that but it is an option and it wont completely ruin my career future.
In order to try to get excited for school I've started to sew a new satchel for my school books, lunch, etc. (excuse my messy unmade bed!)
I made this out of a skirt that no matter what weight I've tried it on as, it wouldn't look right on me. I love the fabric though! I think this needs a few updates to it though, including a bottom that's square instead of straight down, and it needs to be smaller. Right now the width is way too big, I'll show you if I actually get it finished off tomorrow before the big day.
I made a SlimKatie recipe today! It's called Lasagna Soup. Very yummy and everyone loved it. I added a few green veggies in the mix and halved the amount of meat (cause we're poor ha). I thought it was perfect for today, since it was a bit cold outside.
Well, I hope you all had a great day. Glad my sister didn't get carried away by a tsunami or something due to the earthquake! Plus I'm hoping that freakin' hurricane passes without a drop of rain!
What are you hoping/wishing for. Are you nervous about something in your life?
