I have other things on my list
(finishing up the sewing of my 2nd skirt of the break)
(reading the 6th book in the Blue Bloods Series that I finally bought)
(picking up my room)
But if I get too behind I will never catch up and with school starting soon... things get busy.
Grades are posted. Yes, taking 15 credits and working around 20 hours a week does put a little damper on grades.. It was my worst semester at BYU. (but considering I have never worked while going to school and I still took the same amount of credits that I always have.... I think I did pretty well). Next semester I am taking 14 credits, but instead of teaching only 1 Jazz class I am teaching 3 and I am still taking the same work load at Avenia... not sure how it's all going to work out but... it won't be easier than last semester... that's for sure.
And oddly.... I am kind of excited to get back into school-I'M SO BORED!! Even with working everyday and sewing and watching movies and playing games... It's not enough (it doesn't help that practically ALL MY FRIENDS are out of town/unavailable during most of the break)... I think I'm just a girl who likes a schedule, who likes being TOO busy-too busy that I don't have time to miss my friends and be lonely. I think that's the truth, I like being so busy that my emotions are pushed away and all I have to focus on is getting through the day. (is that bad?... it kind of sounds bad, but I think it is the way I work best)
Well... no more talk of school-back to CHRISTMAS!!
