So...hey....and all that stuff. I know, I started school, I got fed up with the world and then I disappeared. It's not intentional. I've just been plugging along and writing for my classes, which I'm beginning to think that these profs are in cahoots. In the past week, I've written close to a dozen pages in essays between the two, and I have about 25 more between them to get through before the semester is up in the middle of April.
Write write write.
On top of that, my handsome husband gifted me 2 beautifully bound journals for my birthday earlier this month, and I have a million things I'm jotting down there as well. Someone said "that's it? That's all he got for you for your birthday?" Uh. YEAH. The dude knows the way to my heart isn't through jewelry. It's blank pages with endless possibilities. Ok, and maybe a pretty, sparkly thing from time to time, but seriously. Between those journals and a gift from a dear friend at Christmas, I've plenty of places to put my thoughts as of late. Just not here, obviously. Oops.
Regarding school; if you'll allow me to brag for a hot second, I'm doing well so far with mid-term grades at 96% and 117%. Don't ask me how we get above 100%, but I'm not going to argue either. So, I think I'm handling this college thing fine. Of course, these are English and Lit courses, which I love, so I'm under no delusion that I'll be skating through the next 15 years before I graduate. Absolutely not. In fact, look for me to be hiding under my desk, wailing when it's time to tackle my math completion.
For now, however, I will take what I can get in the way of a nice grade for the semester and move on. I can register next week for my summer and fall classes, and if all goes well, I could potentially have 18 credits for my first calendar year of college.
Maybe this won't take me forever? Hmmmm.
In any event, I just wanted to appear so you wouldn't forget about me and to let you know that I've started a second blog. Not to cheat on you, lovies, but because I had to. It's actually an assignment for my English class, but I figured once the semester is over I'll likely keep it up so I can have all of my essays and creative writing stuffs (once I get to actually focus on my minor) in one place.
Feel free to stop by if you want to see me pretend I'm smart and say things like "it's a complete subjugation of an independent spirit" and then wonder who said those things when the Professor points out what an insightful observation that was. (True story. That phrase was used as an "excellent example of descriptive writing" in my LIT class and it took me about 15 minutes to realize he was talking about me.)
One thing about that blog though: at this point, it's for looking only. Until I can figure out what my Professor is looking for, and if comments from the outside world are welcome, please refrain from posting there for now.
It will be open for comments after the semester, however, and I'll welcome your words with open arms. For now though, look but don't type. All bets are off after April 20. I'm fair game.
Of course, feel free to leave adoration or criticism (but mostly adoration because, really: me) here. This blog is never closed for comments.
