School and butterflies

Well, I don't think I've written about it much here because I focus more on weight loss and the band than many other areas of my life here (well, except for hubby, lol), but the butterflies are starting. However, keeping eating in check. Still 227.5 this morning. YAY! :)

I have been out of work since the end of March and have been actively looking for many months now. As time was going on, I started to realize that this could take a while and I'm whiling away my time doing a lot of nothing. I was working full-time while going to school part-time for the last year and-a-half, so I figured if I was going to end up sitting here anyway, why not go to school full-time and get my degree? I've already sat here five months (by the time I start school), more than a semesters' worth... and so many jobs require a degree anyway, so...

Anyway, I have signed up for five classes -- 17 credit hours (18 is the school's max)! Omg, wth am I thinking? I just got a syllabus e-mailed to me by one of my instructors and it's really hitting home how busy I'm going to be. I've always put good effort into my college schooling (I'm emphasizing "college" because I certainly didn't care in high school). I was on the dean's list while working full-time, so obviously it matters to me. But I've never gone full-time before and hope I am not spreading myself thin.

Then I remember that ditsy hormonal pimple-faced kids who are all about partying and getting laid do it all the time. Shoot, if they can do it, so can I.



  1. You can TOTALLY do it, Beth. I bet you whip that lot into shape. You have life experiences they can't even dream of. Get out there and kick their butts!!
