Tacky?

I just saw something odd on Facebook. There is a guy who is going back to school but is asking people for donations to fund him. Is that tacky? I just don't know how to feel about that.

So I have been back in school for a year now. This semester I am only taking 3 classes, however it is 9 units which is considered part time. I seem to always be busy with schoolwork and never seem to be able to catch up on all the reading and homework. I am still waiting to find out if I am approved for a federal student loan. I need to call the financial aid office tomorrow because it had been over 2 weeks since I submitted my application. I really hope I am approved. If not then I really need to find some kind of a job but with all the foot issues I keep having Jeremy is very adamant about me not working right now and just concentrating on school and getting my foot taken care of. Of course since I do not have health insurance right now I cannot afford to have an MRI done on my foot. I also need to go to the school and take the math and English placement test so I can start getting all of my general education courses done. I really want to continue with school and become a teacher but I am worried that it is going to take me longer than I planned on.

I really should update my blog more. I have a lot of pictures to share. The twin nephews where here a few weeks ago so I got a few cute pictures of them at the beach. I cannot believe that they are going to be 9 years old in December. Since I don't get to see them much I still think of them as little babies. Maybe this weekend I can finally take a break from schoolwork and do a post with pictures. We went to big bear in may and I took over 300 pictures. Some were good and some not so good but that is the fun of a digital camera, you can delete the pictures that are really bad!

Well that's all from me for now. I must get to bed so I can get up early and try and read an entire history chapter tomorrow!

Happy New Year!

Lets see if I can blog more this year. I need to learn how to do it from my phone so I can post some of the pictures I take with it.
We had an exciting evening of bowling with the kids tonight. We went to the family bowling party and were home by 9. Yep we are that exciting! Jeremy has to work in the morning so it worked out nicely. I somehow have managed to stay up past midnight even though I am exhausted. Tomorrow or day actually I believe that I will be taking down the Christmas tree, which is very dead thanks to all the hot weather we have had, and hopefully get some things cleaned up.
School starts up again on Monday so I have a few more days of winter break. Once school starts I really need to find a job. I have put in tons of applications but nobody wants to hire me. It's actually very frustrating.

I passed both classes!

I am proud to say that I passed both of my classes. I ended up with a B in each one. I am now enjoying the winter break before I start 4 new classes. I think it's going to be more difficult this time since I must find a job. Jeremy wants me to only work part time so I can concentrate on school but I am worried about keeping the bills paid. I am hoping I can find a part time job that will pay me enough to only work part time.

11 year anniversary

Saturday was our 11 year anniversary. We didn't do much durning the day except go fight the crowds at kohls so I could exchange some boots I bought for the correct size. We did go to bandits for dinner and both felt it was a waste of money. They have changed a lot of their food and it sure wasn't worth the new expensive prices! Next year we will just stick with going to Dominick's for dinner.

In other news it is my last week of school for this semester. I have 2 English tests and a final in economics to take this week. After that I have 3 weeks off before starting up again. Next semester I am taking 4 classes. I hope I will be able to stay on top of my homework!

School is tough!

I thought High School was hard, College classes are pretty hard especially when you haven't taken any classes in 20 years! I got a B on my first economics mid term and have a second one in 2 weeks. The English class is a little easier, but I am having to study extra for the tests I have for that class because I tend to forget things easily.
I have not had any luck finding a job and am feeling a bit discouraged. I need to find something really soon otherwise we aren't going to be able to keep the bills paid much longer. I would really like to be able to go to school full time for a while but we cant afford for that to happen right now. I am trying to find grants to apply for but I am not having much luck. I am tempted to go apply for a student loan through Ventura College but I am afraid that their interest rate might be really high. Maybe I should buy some lottery tickets and hope that we can win enough money to pay the bills for a while so I can concentrate only on school.

School has begun!

School started on Monday even though I only have 2 classes I feel like I have a lot to do. I have been reading chapter one of the Economics book today and plan on getting through that this week. I have a test on the first 2 chapters on the 4th. I also have homework due on the 5th for my English class. I need to make myself a calendar for the month so I don't forget when things are due. Maybe I will do that tonight before I go to bed. I had to take a quiz on the syllabus for the English class and I only missed one question!

School starts Monday!

With school starting Monday I can't help but be a little worried. I am really hoping that I can pass both classes I am taking. I really wanted to take America history but it was full. I ended up taking business English and principles of macroeconomics. I am worried about the English class since I hated English in high school. I ordered my books for that class yesterday and just today found out what book I need for the economy class. With not having been in school in 20 years (yes it's really been that long) I am hoping that I can get used to studying and doing homework pretty quickly. I really wish that we could win the lottery so I could just go to school full time and get it over with.
