There are days when I wake up and I wonder if I’ve lost my mind. This week feels like a repeat of those days. Kind of like Ground Hog Day except for me and well it’s obviously only January 14 instead of February 2nd. Just pointing out the obvious.
Why do I feel like I’ve lost my mind? Well some say I have pregnancy brain which is very possible. I think some days I just forget a lot of things. It could be in part to here lately I can’t sleep much past 4 or 5am. Yikes, what’s happening to me? I’m not a morning person! But really where I’m going with this is a new semester has begun. I’m not going to lie, right now I’m so overwhelmed as it seems I was at this point last semester!
This semester I have a class based solely on Faulkner. I don’t know who he is other than he’s an author. I did go google him the other day so I’d have at least some what of an understanding on who this class was about. He kind of has a shady past from what I read but that probably has nothing to do with the actual class and his writings… or maybe it does? I have a class on Technical/Professional Editing which is actually the emphasis of my Master’s Degree. Then I still have a “deficiency” class I’m picking up, British Literature II.
Today is the second day of the semester so obviously the professors are going over what is to be expected of the class, etc. That’s always sooooooo overwhelming.
In my Tech Writing class today I learned that if you want the highest paying technical job, get a job working for a Pharmaceutical company. You may sell your sole to them, but you’ll make dang good money! I learned that the 2013 word of the year was Because. Not that it was a new word or anything but just the way you can use it changes it and it has made it the word of the year. It had to contend with Slash (we couldn’t decide if people said this or wrote this or just did the /… the article didn’t say), Selfie, Twerk, and Obamacare. Interesting!
I learned that a bitcoin is a currency used for the internet and a lot of people are investing in this because they think it will be safer than using your own accounts and that people think it will actually become its own currency.
And I got homework. I’ve done one chapter of the homework reading, now just need to read chapter 2 and do both homework assignments. The first will be easy, I’m not sure what the second consists of just yet. Heck I haven’t read the second chapter yet…
Now I’m sitting here thinking about this Faulkner class and almost freaking out. I am a bit worried. I had this professor last semester. His class freaked me out but I was happy, oh so happy with my grade I got in his class. I earned that grade. I’ve always kind of liked the teachers that expect a lot of you even though they are quite intimidating!
Now come the middle of the semester, let’s do a post like this again and see if I’m still in the same place or if I’m sunk how many leagues under the sea is it the saying says or if I’m floating on cloud nine because it’s not quite as bad as it seems right now.
And that boys and girls is all she wrote today! 🙂
