Different Panic Mode....

So after going to my two classes, I am in a different panic mode... One about my books and two about the amount of work that is required of me to get an A in each class. I don't remember this much work given to me when I went to college 8 years ago. I would show up to class take my notes, write a paper or read a book here or there and take some test. HOLY CRAP times have changed. I will now discuss the work I am doing for my two classes and a little bit about each class and the book drama.

ELEMENTARY astronomy. Every week I have to read the assigned chapters, do the home work and observation assignment for each week. I am not sure what those are since we had a SUBSTITUTE. Yes our regular professor is off at a conference presenting research. Which was probably why I was confused when I walked in to class and man was standing in the front talking to the students about computers. I thought I was in the wrong class or that the pervious class was getting over. Because I want the Astronomy class taught by a lady. So I sit, I am 10 mins early then more people trickle in and come to find out I was in the RIGHT class and the other people were shooting the shit and did not care what I thought or who I was.
They did not know that I write a semi-famous blog.

Moving on I still don't have my book yet, i will probably go buy one this weekend because I need to start reading up on the cosmos, so I don't fail so far behind that i have to drop out and have my husband divorce me for wasting his money. I may start a Astronomy blog because I need a "BIG PROJECT" demonstrating what I have learned and the suggestions where music, art, or dance and I don't do that in front of people especially if it is about stars and planets.

American Civ: This is kinda of exciting because I LOVE history, political sciences and all that. The teacher seems pretty cool and knows a lot of stuff and he really really likes to talk. The class only meets once a week so that is not like the Astronomy class that meet 2 times a week. So I am looking forward to that.... NOT all the work I have to do, like read the entire book, write a summary on each chapter, attend a City Council meeting of my choice, read this book called 1776. and study for test and write essays... I also have book drama in this class being that the book I purchased is 2 editions behind and stops at President Clinton. Compared to the book I am suppose to have that is twice as big and talks about the Iraq war.... So I think I will be purchasing another book, because I would like those last 2 or 3 chapters.... and the 50 % more info........ Don't ask me how I did it... I swear when I ordered my book I checked the editions..... UGH.

Don't these people know I have a son who has demands that do not include me doing homework?? Don't they also know that I a have to keep my house sparkling clean, entertain all my friends, diet, budget, get out of debt, be perfect and pretty, and on and on and on.... and blog!?!?! I will admit that I did not do half those things, but I wanted to reiterate the demand that I feel people EXPECT from me 24/7. Oh and run my new business, make dinner, and make sure my husband has clean clothes....

Now, Now, I know you all feel that way to sometimes, and I read those blogs... so now read my pity party blog. Also I don't remember that much work back when I was at Community College... I guess work on a University level is hard... Maybe there was that much and I was just 19 and did not care......

An another note I wrote this on Thursday evening and just post dated it for Friday morning I don't get up that early.... I think I did in the summer but not know I am dead. xoxox

Well, your maid should be able to help you out with the housekeeping.

I loved that you're worried about your hubby having clean clothes - ummm, what about you and your son? Do you not worry and say to self "if no clean clothes I'll just go naked"

Get a maid.

Come on girl! The beginning of school is always scary! Before you know it you'll be that lady at the top of your blog, juggling away. You can do it!! And little Micah will become acustomed to you doing homework... make him a special little bookbag with fun little "homework" of his own he can do while you do yours... nickjr.com baby! Good luck!!

College is extra hard with a family and all of the Mom responsibilities that come with it! You can do it though...you can do anything, can't you!?!
FYI...I had a similar book edition problem when I ordered my last set of books. I called the distributor and they just sent me the new edition, no extra charge for book or shipping. Still won't get you your book on time though!!!Good luck!
