Plan of Attack!!! (Take II)

A while back I posted my “plan of attack” here. I thought it was time to lay out the newly updated (and slightly revised) plan so I can feel better about myself.

Summer '09
Sociology - DONE!!
Gen Psychology – DONE!!

Fall '09
A&P I – DONE!!!
Lifespan Psych – DONE!!

Wintermester ‘09
Speech – In progress…

Spring '10
A&P II - Registered
Fine Arts Elective – Hopefully Photography Art Appreciation – Planning on registering any day now…

Spring Minimester ‘10
PE Course – UGH!

Summer '10/Fall ‘10

Spring ‘11
NS BABY!!!!!!

So there you have it. The *new* plan. Not much has really changed. I am currently taking my required speech course during the wintermester. (Can we say holy crap! Intense!!!) I really, really, really want to take Photography and under this degree plan I technically can, however, I have been thinking more and more about eventually going on to get my Bachelors in Nursing (from here on out referred to as BSN) and looking at the required courses for those, photography isn’t one of them (bummer). I figured the smarter thing to do would be to take a course that IS approved for that future plan. Just. In. Case. – See College really does make a person smarter. :p

I am still bothered by that pesky Micro course. I left it during the summer but I am still not really sure if I am cut out for an accelerated science course. I did realize that I could get away with applying to The Program without that course finished, and not lose any points to make me competitive. I will have to have it done before I start The Program but it can be “in progress” rather than completed when I apply. All that garbage means, is that I can take the course in the fall, and still apply for The Program in the Spring of 2011. I was pretty excited when I figured that all out. It means I can start NS a whole half a year earlier than I expected!!!

I'm a Bad, Bad, Blogger

Hello there strangers! Bet you never thought you would hear from me again. No, I have not fallen off the face of the earth. I have simply been immersed in the human body. (that sounds slightly kinky but trust me, there was nothing kinky about it) A&P I is now behind me. I managed to squeak by with a B for the class. Not exactly what I was hoping for but damn, that class was tough. Well, maybe not so much tough but it took quite a bit more focus than I was prepared for. Now that I know more of what to expect I am pretty confident that I can get that A in A&P II this Spring. (fingers crossed!! And toes, and anything else I can manage to cross)

So what else have I been up to? Well, really what more is there time for? I have to say that I am really enjoying this college thing. I miss the time I used to have with my girls but honestly, it has been a nice break from the mom/wife/employee role that I have had going on. I am finally doing something for myself and damn it feels good.

Speaking of employee, I am happy to report that I am no longer working for the tyrant. Nope, not working as a CNA either as my last post would have you believe. I was able to score a new position in my company that is not much better in terms of the work I am doing (can we say BORING!) but my new boss, and my co-workers, are fabulous. It has been such a nice change. I feel so much happier. It is really amazing the difference getting out from the worst-boss-in-the-world can make. Hopefully now I will be able to stick this out until I get into The Program.
