Knitting

I'm going to knit a couple of blocks for a humanatarian afghan. At the moment I'm knitting a prayer shawl, blocks. That's all I can concentrate on right now.

a diary of me

a diary of me

So. It's been a long, long time since I last blogged. I managed the holidays. Unfortunately I flunked my class I was taking. I'm looking into Pell Grants. I really hope I get one. Been downloading lots of music. I really want a IPod. Write more later. It's really late and I must get to bed.

Later,
Anne

Back to School

So. I'm going to start school again next week. It's slightly frightening because I've graduated with and Associates Degree 15 years ago.

But I want to make more of myself then what I'm doing now. I work with Adult Probation & Parole. Interesting job. But I want to do more. So I registered for school. The department I work at will pay for the schooling as long as I keep 3.0 GPA. I've faught tooth and nail to get into the school line, and I don't want to screw it up now. As far as I know, I'm the only secretary to go back to school, and all the probation officers and higher management are waiting for me to fall flat on my face the first quarter. If I can help it, I won't give them the satisfaction.

I declard a major of accounting. Don't know if I'll keep that major or not. I'll probably change it to something else. Perhaps Business Management. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. :o) Sooner or later I might figure it out.

As it is, I'm taking an English class and a very basic Algebra class. Taking 8 credit hours. That's plenty.

This should be an interesting ride. But I really want to succeed at this.

Later,
Anne

Hmmmmm


Hmmmmm. Been a while since I've been in here to post. Not a lot going on lately. It's our state holiday and so I get a three day weekend. That's always good. You know, there are some advantages to working for the state.

I love music. Been listening to a lot of music. Can you tell who my favorite group is? I listen to it as I'm working on the computer. Another of my favorite pastimes.

I love to watch PBS. It's more entertaining than the regular channels. I don't find the "reality" tv shows all that entertaining. Antiques Roadshow is more my style. :o) Or documenteries. History.

I've decided that I don't want to do the job I'm doing for the rest of my life. So much to the surprise of my family (surprised that I'm actually making the change) I've decided to go back to school and get at least a bachelors degree. I'm still trying to make up my mind. The department at work will only pay for department related schooling. So I stated my major as Accounting. I've changed my mind already. I'm thinking about going into counseling. I find that interesting. The department would pay for that, becuase there is a lot of counseling that goes on in the place that I work. What I'd really like to do is go into teaching. That will have to wait for a while, I believe. However, I've been known to change my mind a lot. :o)

There is another problem with going back to school and having the department pay for it. The department always seems to put the officers before the secretarial staff. It happens on a regular basis, and it really irritates the secretarial pool that we're put last on the list.

However, I'm about ready to pay for my own schooling by Pell Grants, scholarships, or (and this is my last resort) student loans. The drawback for that is that if the department finds out I'm paying for it myself then they'll probably not pay for a thing as long as I'm doing it myself. But I just go accepted to the local college and I don't want to pull out now. Registration will be over with in a couple of weeks, so I gotta get my butt in gear and nag my work or get some other way of payment.

It's hot. However, I'm sure the rest of you guys are hot too. We sit in the house next to the air conditioner and not move unless we have to. Cooking is out, unless it's in the microwave. :o) I dont want to think about my electric bill. Hmmmmmmm.

Ok, that's enough for now. Write more soon about the school situation.

So

So, this is me. The first time I've ever did anything like this. I'm not sure why I'm doing this. Maybe to let off some steam, write down things I don't want to say outloud. Never know.

A bit about myself.

Divorced.
Mother of 3 more or less grown kids. Less than more grown up kids.
Loves music.
Wants to live other than where I'm at.
One child developmentally delayed, has ADHD and is high functioning autistic.
Youngest child is Bi-polar. Inherits it from her mother.
Oldest child is extremely smart.
I'm Bi-polar too.
Perhaps I'll write more tomorrow. For now this is me.
