Well it is finaly time to breath. I just sent off my last final project and not to complete the final blog for Comp class. Since I started to school this is the first time that I had a job and was trying to attend school at the same time. And I will not lie it has been very hard and my grades are not as good. I just need to buckle down in the next quarter and improve my scores.

The end.

Well here it is the end of class. I have enjoyed reading each person papers and blogs. I wish I could say that I enjoyed writing them as well. It was interesting to go through the research process, but the stress of getting everything in the proper order, citing. With the end of class my puppies will get to see their mother again even if it is for a short time.

End of the class.

Can you believe that the end of this class is here already? I have enjoyed reading the blogs during class. As mentioned by another class member, my life does not seem to be that interesting  and it has been hard for me to find things to write about. Will I continue after class, I am not sure whether I will or not. Maybe with enough practice it will become second nature and I will enjoy writing about my life and the people in it. Someone once told me that they liked talking to me because I always had stories to tell of things that happened in the past. I must have looked at her like she was insane because I certainly thought so. I remember thinking at the time that the child needed a life if she thought anything was interesting in my past. It feels like all I have ever done was work.

I cannot believe how much I miss the seminars for this class. Aside from the fact that the option 2 is not much fun, when I listen to the seminar I find myself talking to the screen when Barb ask questions. But no one responds to me and I feel left out. Of the writing classes I have had this one seems to have some very interesting students. My other class is not going so well. We were to complete lab assignments using the AHIMA VLAB for the last two units and no one has been able to sign on. When the problem is fixed I guess it will be a fight to finish to complete two weeks of assignments plus a research paper in both classes.  FUN TIMES!

Pictures and profiles

Dont't you just get irritated with people that do not finish profiles on themselves and post a picture.
It is so nice to put a face with a name. Unless of course you have never taken a good picture in your life. You may have recognized me from the faceless picture on my blog page. Every time I look at it I think "I must post a picture" then I take a picture like the one for my work ID and am reminded why there is no picture.
I think that I will post a picture of my two children Abigail and Toby.
Isn't the weather wonderful! It still gets plenty warm during the days but cools off at night. You can feel fall in the air, which is my favorite time of the year. It is time to go to North Georgia and get apples, take a lunch to eat beside the stream in Helen, GA and marvel at the changing colors.

Week 5 Already!!!!!!!!

I remember when I was young and a week seemed like it took forever to go by. Now here we are in the middle of the fifth week of class.
I was thinking as I read this weeks assignment that it was not so bad, until I read the assignment from my other class that has always been hard, this week has twice as much work to do. Not an exaggeration! It pays to get started early, however it is not always possible.

Time management

I think of myself as someone that uses time management skills. This has been a excellent example of what not to do in order to get things accomplished. Monday I had a mirgrain headache so I stayed home from work and did not complete unit 3 until minutes before I had to start my 1 hour commute. Friday I scheduled off because I was working on Saturday so I did not start unit 4 I was goingto finish most of it on Friday and then Sunday. My sister called to say that she would be out of town for the week end and if I wanted some extra money that I could clean her house on Friday. Still I would have time to get some class work in. Then around 11:00 on Friday I received a call from my job asking if I wanted to make up some of the hours missed on Monday, of course I said yes. Unfortunately I did not get finished with my sisters house and thought that I would do that after work on Friday. That of course that did not happen and I had to go Saturday after work at 6:00 to finish and I pulled a muscle in my back trying to hurry and get the floor mopped. Today, Sunday, I have tried so hard to get started on my class work and simply could not think I was soo tired. Finally I took a nap and feel much better now and getting in the groove now that it is 9:00p.m. Oh well it sounds like an all nighter!
I know not to commit every minute of my time and I need to remind myself what is most important and stick to it.

Thesis research

Normally I like to do research. In fact I get so caught up in the articles that the searches produce that I sometimes stray from my topic. As you know when you do not stay focused, you are late completing your task. Since I do not have much time before the deadline which if Tuesday @11:59p.m., now is a great time to write down my key search words and if the information does not fit move on. I guess I could save the information in acticles that I will not be using to read later. Like that is gonna happen! As you can see I have lost my focus agin. Well time to get back to the work at hand.

Class discussions

I like having different ways of communication with my classmates. And the information about other features that can be used is also very interesting. 
The term is proving to be a challange. This class is a writing class but another class I have is about automating medical records and I thought, finaly I will get the chance to see medical records and learn something about them. It turns out that class is pretty much a writing class as well.
The solution is to press on and do as much as I can with the time available to do classwork, comute for an hour and work a fulltime schedule.

Comp II

I do not know where my first blog went so hear is another attempt to get it right.

Sunday, August 1, 2010


I have aways dreamed of traveling to Irland. I fell in love with the countryside and the accent. In 2009 I had the chance to make the trip with a group friends. After months of saving every penny I could and in spite of being told that I would probably be laid off from my job in a few months, the trip was made. Not once has that decision been regreted. Every thing that I had pictured in my mind was just the way I had imagined.
