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.

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.
