This was a rough week for me. School started Tuesday and I had a bit of a freak out. I decided to get on the fast track for my "college round 2" degree and am taking accelerated classes. Unluckily for me, the gen eds for music performance majors (college round 1) don't exactly line up for the gen eds for digital media majors (college round 2) so I feel like an 18 year old again, griping about how I don't understand why I have to take classes irrelevant to my focus (grumble, grumble). Anywhay, to the point, a philosophy class may have not been the best idea for my first 8 week accelerated course (in addition to my computer courses, which luckily so far seem to be pretty easy breezy). I feel like I'm in way over my head with a full time job, a full time school load, a blog I try to update daily, and well, life in general. Mr.Husband has been amazing of course, sending "cheer up, you can do it!" flowers in addition to little "it'll all be okay" pats on the back. And blessed be, Friday night was knitting night with my favorite group of ladies.

As of now, I've made all this weeks assignment deadlines, have done (almost) all my reading, and managed to only miss one day of blogging (sorry Friday readers!) Fingers crossed I can manage this coming week a little better than the last (read: not have a total depresso - pig out - bingefest mid-week).
