This is going to be a short entry, all I want to say is that I am now a licensed driver!!!!!! woooohoooo!!!!!!
It's nice to be able to say that I can drive. Now I just have to learn to get used to driving by myself.

Leave of Absence

| | Comments (6)

I just read Karissa's entry about having to leave school for a little while. I know you are going through a hard time Karissa, but I'm glad that I'm not the only one to have to say goodbye for a little while.
Right now I feel like a failure, I didn't succeed in getting enough credits, due to having to drop a class, I can't get finanical aid, which means I can't get back to school until January. I feel frustrated and disappointed in myself. I looked so forward to coming back. I really enjoy school and learning. I hate that I once again have another set back.
If all goes well, I will be taking classes at a community college, and then coming back in the spring. Unfortunatly I had to push back my plans to study abroad. Hopefully I will be going in the fall of 2005.
Besides taking a few classes to catch myself up. I am hoping to get my license, pray for me on wednesday, and getting a better job that won't totally cut my hours. One good benefit I guess is that all of the other college students will be heading back to school, so I might find some decent jobs out there.
Also, I wanted to get this out now before I forget. Tiff - since I will be coming back to school in the spring, I will be able to go along on the habitat for humanity trip. I am hoping that you can keep me posted on what's going on. And if Cindy talks about spots for it, make sure she saves a spot for me. I am really hoping you read this. I think I also might get in contact with Carmen and a few others as well.
I will try to blog once in awhile, so I am hoping that Dr. Jerz doesn't totally kick me off of here. I will probably be taking some of your classes in the spring anyway.
I know none of you really give a fig about me but I figured that I would get this out there for more myself than anything.
Oh yeah, Karissa, I hope you will be able to work things out and come back too. You are a fun and inspiring classmate to work with. :)

Beach Baby in the Hurricane

Hey everyone, sorry I haven't posted in forever. I lead a very boring life, and most things weren't worth blogging. I finally encountered an experience worth blogging about, unfortunatly it was my vacation that was supposed to be at the beach last week.

What was to be my fabulous vaction turned into a big disappointment due to stupid hurricane charley. A friend and I went down to Myrtle Beach last thursday and had to leave 24 hours later. It was awful. The worst part was that I had never been to Myrtle Beach before. We didn't even get to do anything. It was even too ugly to go hang out on the beach.
One positive thing was that fortunatly after driving all night long to get to virgina, getting out of harms way we went to Kings Dominion. It was actually pretty fun. Another good thing was that I got sick in Virgina (that's not the good part) My feelings were that at least it was in Virgina and not at the Beach. I might have to post our old fasion photo that we did. Unfortunatly since I'm not at school I can't use my scanner (I have to use my aunt and uncles computer while I am at home.)
After my friend and I had the worst luck ever, I don't think I will ever think of hurricanes or going to the beach the same way again. Has anyone else ever been evacuated from the beach before? If I go next year I am definatly going to request cancelling the trip before taking any chances. Does anyone else have any interesting stories to share, I would really like to hear them :)
