So two weeks of school have already gone and I haven't blogged yet wtih reason. I was waiting to experience all of my classes so I could write the first post well. :) I do it all for the readers, I swear.
I'm taking 16 hours this semester and I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about it actually. I know how many credits I have left to graduate and not taking a full course load scares me. I want to make sure I graduate earl y. It's my own personal goal and I would love to accomplish it.
My schedule is slightly saddening only because I have to go to school five days a week which is something I haven't had to do in quite some time. Classes are actually tough and the homework load is scaring me a little bit.
It's a lot of reading and writing which I should expect as a Communications student, but hey! it's still tough especially now that I'm working. I figured that I would be able to sleep in, but alas, I have to be awake early in the mornings for work or school leaving me only Sunday to sleep in.
There is fun news aside from working and going to class! This past Monday was Martin Luther King Day of Service. This year I went to River Rouge and painted classrooms at an elementary school. I even managed to paint with individuals who all came from Dearborn including some faculty and alums. :) It was a lot of fun and it felt really great to see the classrooms lights up from their new paint job. A few hours of my day was worth it to help make the classroom atmosphere better for the students there. Even got a cool shirt out of it which is good enough for me!
Alright, I'm off to read all the books that need to read for next week. Hopefully I won't fall asleep like I did last time. :(
