Jump for joy

Hello readers. When I got my essay back from my professor today I had plenty of " ah, ha" moments. She said I had to read my paper out before I submit it... or somewhere along those lines. She must be a mind reader because I don't read my paper out load. I think because I hate to write. Nothing is shocking to me anymore because you can say I’ve been to hell and back. Even though it is very different from writing, it has become a reflex. Whatever the directions say I’ll do it. Why overachieve is you don't get anything for it? Some might argue you will learn more but I have to disagree because the thoughts are in my head already, I'm just putting it on paper.

In the past I thought peer reviews were not the best and at times it can hurt but I now know they are a learning experience. I really don’t take criticism well because I aim to please, but if it means that it can help me become better, I’m all for it. Online school is the first time I had to do peer reviews because I had it easy in high school. But college is about learning and learning will help me get a better job and a better job will get me more money. I like money so bring on the learning. Although people will respond different to my paper, every word is important to me because I strive for excellence.

Thanks your blog helped me out with my second paragraph. :)

Thread like...

Hello everyone. I nearly missed the topic again for this week’s blog! Good thing I looked in my grade book! Well, these past 6 weeks has been mostly up with a few bumps. Work is always a bump in the road but I always get through it. I did have a vacation not too long ago and I had a blast! I believe in another post I put up this school week I talk about it more. School has been... well school. At first I thought my A & P class was very hard but you really just have to study. As for my comp II class the only problem I have had so far was my finial project. I'm hoping the professor likes my project because I put a lot of hours and sweat into it.

As for my project and my ideas it will give me a better idea of what I want to say in my project. It's great that we did it in week 6 and not in the last few weeks because I have a 7 page paper due for my other class. Depending on the feedback from the teacher this week will determine on what I will do later when researching my paper. If she doesn’t like it I might have to go to a book store like Barns and Nobel to find a book for my thesis. It was very hard for me to find information and I'm out of ideas even if I had to change it.

Good and bad days

Hello my fellow readers. I got back from my vacation today and I must say I had a blast. I went dolphin watching, mini golfing, swimming, the list goes on. I however came down with a cold on the day I went down there and I was not all too happy. It was me and my girlfriend's one year anniversary and there are some things you just can't do when you’re sick. We both forgot sunscreen until it was too late and even though it hurt the both of us we fought through it and still had fun. We also both had a blast despite my sniffles.

For such a long time, ever since I was a kid, every time I went on vacation and went home I became “home sick". To me it's strange because people should be home sick when there away from their home, not away from their vacation. I think it's funny how someone doesn’t understand themselves because half the time I don't understand me. But the more I think about it home sick is really something or someone you miss right? I miss my vacation and even though it's been a few hours since I last seen her, I miss my girlfriend.

Life is always better at the beach

Hello my fellow readers; this week will be one to remember. My vacation starts soon as I clock out of work Friday at 4pm EST and I can't wait! I will be going to an east coast beach called Wildwood. Not only will this be my vacation but it will mark the one year anniversary for me and my girlfriend. Both of us are looking forward to this for many reasons but the biggest is just to relax and spend time with each other. Both of our jobs and lives have been stressing us out and it shows, so this is a great time for a vacation.

As for school I will try to finish everything up by Friday. We leave Sunday morning but I do not want to deal with school while I am at the beach. I did my discussion post Tuesday and posted it today. Today I will do my blog, read, and take a quiz for a class. Tomorrow I will respond to a classmate and Friday as well. That is all the homework for this week thank god!

Drugs & more drugs, oh my!

Hello readers, I just got done watching a good comedy called “Youth in Revolt" and was it funny. It really was about a teenager boy who meets a girl while he's on vacation but she like bad boys I guess you could say. So the kid creates a bad side of him, and eventually wins her over. As for the title of this entry, you will just have to watch the movie to find out what I mean. Overall, I would give the movie 8 out of 10 stars.

With my drug free life (since I was born!) I am taking it day by day with work and school. Just as long as I stick to my schedule I have I should be fine. What I like to do is post my response to the discussion post on Wednesdays and reply to one classmates post on Thursday and Friday. Saturday I start to do any projects and Sunday I read what I have to for the week. Monday is test day for me and Tuesday is the day I make sure everything is handed in. So far it has worked well for me; although I should read on Wednesdays before seminar, but what I am doing now is working great for me.

Oh, and p.s. I found out that if you type in Microsoft word for spell and grammar check you can highlight the whole paragraph and you can drag it over to here!
