Entry #100

January 05, 2005

Yup. This is my 100th entry. This is pretty crazy considering that my first post was on September 3rd of last year. That's an average of 25 posts a day month. If you take into consideration the 60 posts on my livejournal account in the same time period... well, holy crap! do I ever leave my house??

seriously though, I've been livin' it up. a whole audience of intelligent persons right at my fingertips, just because I happened to take a class called Writing for the Internet? hells yeah I'm going to enjoy it! I am a glutton for attention, I'm afraid, if you haven't been able to tell so far, and I find that the internet makes it easy for me to let it all hang out, so to speak.

In fact, suitably inspired by the sheer joy of last semester's WFTI class, I am currently doing something totally insane: I am pursuing a degree in Creative Writing at Seton Hill concurrently with pursuing a dual certificate in Web Page Design and Graphic Design at Westmoreland Country Community College.

So if you see me this semester looking harried and pissed off, it's probably not because I hate you, honest. It's because I am taking 21 credits at two different colleges, as well as working as a *happy* student services clerk at WCCC. See I have fifteen credits for SHU, and I can't drop any classes because of financial aid issues, and 6 credits at the community college.

SHU has to be my priority for obvious reasons, but the two classes that I am taking at C's are the fun ones in the lineup: Adobe Photoshop and Dreamweaver MX, both online classes, in case you thought I was totally nuts trying to squeeze 48 hours into every 24. In fact, one of my SHU courses is an online one as well, a history course called The Middle East.

So really, I have a full time schedule, just with lots and lots of work on the side.

It's great.

Anyone else going to have a crazy ass semester this spring? Got a overloaded on schoolwork story that you want to share? Want to chastize me on my insanity?? Go for it!!

Consider yourself chastised.

Er, actually that's less than one a day--I think you meant 25 per month. (Glad I took that Stats class!) But keep on blogging--I enjoy your viewpoint of the world.

Moira, I'm pretty sure that a minimum of 12 credits is full-time, and that's all I needed to register for this semester to keep my financial aid (namely federal/state grants/loans). If you're positive that this isn't the case with you, my sympathies and understanding that you'll be insanely busy. If you're not sure, I'd ask at the financial aid office... good luck!

Karissa - I need 15 credits because I only did 9 credits last semester. I had a horrid class that I had to get out of before it was too late and I couldn't pick up another class. So while 12 credits is full time, I need 24 credits for a year in order to have the full amount of financial aid next semester.

Susan - You're right - I meant per month. 25 posts per day would be a feat that only the most hardcore blogger could accomplish. I'm glad you enjoy reading my posts! ;c)

Amanda - Thanks! Someone has to talk some sense into me. :c)
