Well it has been an interesting last few months. I ended the Summer semester at school and have now started the Fall semester.

I am taking a break from math classes this semester. I have an Art History class, Public Speaking class and a World History (up to the 1500's) class. I am enjoying them all. I actually created my schedule around the Art class because I wanted this specific Professor and class. That accounts for the 8:00 am class. This is a struggle for me since you all know I am NOT a morning person. I took the public speaking class just because it looked fun. I was correct... My Professor is hilarious. I nailed my first speech with an A+ and my next speech is due Tuesday. I am nervous about that one. She said to think outside the box and well.... I am lol. The world history class is interesting and I am learning a lot from it. I am already thinking about my final paper.

I started a new job a little over a month ago.  I am a Personal Concierge at the Marriott out at DIA. I am loving it. I get to meet new people and the team of people I work with is incredible. Sadly we lost a supervisor to the JW down-town. I will miss him. I was going to apply for that position but I have not been with Marriott for 90 days and I got to thinking about school scheduling and health issues and decided I really didn't want to add to the stress in my life right now. I will just sit back and learn for now.

I am thinking of taking several trips this fall... One to Atlanta to visit a good friend and one to visit my sister and nieces in Houston. I am working on saving some money up for a big trip next summer.

Well I am off to do some research for speech and history...


Finals Week... finally

Well, this starts the beginning of "Finals Week" for me. As usual I am stressed about them. My GPA has slipped a bit this semester but I am still at about a 3.6 which is ok I guess. I will pull it up over the summer if I can.

My final Drawing project is done and signed... we critique them on Tuesday and Thursday. I like the way mine turned out. It is a conte crayon, charcoal, and graphite composite drawing of a vent in an old fort in Fujairah UAE. On the left side of the drawing I "wrote" in Arabic part of my favorite poem, The Road Less Traveled and on the right I wrote the last line in English. I just need to mount it for class and it is totally finished. My English paper is almost done. I think I just need to write the conclusion and it will be done. Then all I have is my Math final. That I am nervous about. Math has been a huge learning curve for me.

I need to take at least 1 class this summer... Math again... ugh! This should be the last Algebra class I need though. I should be able at the end of summer semester to retest and avoid the rest of the Algebra. Then I can take the accounting class I need in the fall and work on a few more requirements.

I am still seeing the guy I wrote about before. Not much has changed there. I am still trying to keep it casual and no commitments. At least for the next 3 years. I don't need a distraction. I have enough trouble with "squirrel" syndrome as it is. I need to "laser focus" as my friend Joy says...

Well it is time to hit the books again. 28 out of 42 homework problems are done... Then I need to get on and do some online math homework... 70 problems of that... well at least I should know the material.
