School Days

glitter-graphics.comThe kids are all back in school. Both Troy University and the local high school began fall semester on August 12. I think the kids were glad to get back to a school schedule... maybe.

Today I started my fall semester. I feel as though I may have bitten off more than I can chew. How dumb of me! LOL.. I'm hoping in a couple of weeks time that I won't be feeling quite as overwhelmed as I am right now.

I have a hefty schedule... I didn't get accepted into the fall RN program, so I have to re-apply for the Spring program. And I'm trying to make myself as competitive as possible, so I am currently taking courses that will give me extra points towards admission. I am taking Microbiology, Human Anatomy and Physiology, Algebra, and General Psychology (a pre-req for a course I need to graduate the RN program).

Today I had Microbiology and Algebra. I have concerns about the Algebra.. it's been a few years since I last had to know all this math jargon. I'm hoping it will be easier as I get used to the terms again.

The Microbiology teacher is gonna be a lot of fun. I think the class is going to be fascinating and that gives me hope that I will not have too hard of a time keeping up.

Tomorrow I have Anatomy and Psychology. Of those two, I think the Anatomy is going to be the harder one. At least I have no classes on Fridays so I can use that day to read ahead!

The beginning will be like drinking from a fire hose, but give it a week or two and you will settle into a routine. Best of luck to you :o)

My favorites of that list was the anatomy and psychology. Loved every psychology course I ever took. Micro was cool, but hated the algebra!! It's hard at first to get into the swing of things, but it does get easier as you get into it more.

Loved the triangle graphic!

If you need any help with Micro, drop me an email! You'll do great, I'm confident of that. Hugs, Beth
