Planning Ahead

This semester is almost over. THANK GOD!

It has been the hardest semester as of yet. I am doing really well in my Anatomy classes and in my Physiology lab, but I have a solid C in my physiology lecture. So, I will be retaking it next semester. Luckily, even with that C, I can apply for the nursing program this fall.... As long as I re-take an old psychology class over the summer. Which stinks, because I wasn't going to take anything over the summer. That's alright, though. It will all be worth it someday.

Today I registered for fall semester. Of course, I registered for way too much but only so I can drop the ones I decide I don't want. I would rather add too much now and be able to get into all the classes I want to.

Here is the rundown for Fall Semester:

For sure I will be taking:
  1. Physiology (luckily, I won't have to take the lab again)
  2. Business Statistics
  3. Medical Terminology
The ones I am thinking about:
  1. Trigonometry (if I don't get into the nursing program I will need this for a Biology degree)
  2. Human Development
I know there is light at the end of this very long tunnel, but it would sure be nice to see it! I really do enjoy being in school and learning (I was never very good at it as a kid). It just feels like it is taking a really long time to get to where I am going. If I get into the nursing program, I will see major light. Getting in will mean I will have three semesters left. IF I don't get in (which is a bigger chance than getting in is), I will have something like three years left! Sigh.

Slowly, but surely, I am going to get SOMEWHERE!

A Social Retard

I have decided that I may be a social retard. I am not sure when this happened as it has always been easy for me to make friends and talk to people. Lately, though, I have noticed that I am less comfortable talking to people than I used to be. It has gotten to the point of practically ignoring people I know.


Today I took the two youngest kids to a local indoor play place. While there, I saw two different people I knew. One was the wife of my oldest son's boy scout leader and the other was a woman I know from the kid's school. Both of them I waved to and that's it. Nothing else. I practically ignored them after that. What the heck?! When did I become such a retard??

I think it might be due to the stress I have been under. I just don't FEEL like interacting with people or pretending life is great when it doesn't feel that way. I just don't have the energy. So, maybe I'm not a social retard. Maybe, I just can't handle much else right now, including people.
