The Happenings

I have a few moments, so I thought I would do a quick update on what has been happening for me lately.  I noticed that it's been nearly a month since I last posted.  Where does the time go?

I haven't been feeling the blog bug too much.  I have spare thoughts every now and then that I think, "I should write about that," but it often doesn't go much further.  I should probably start keeping a list.  Then when I have a light homework week, I could pump out a few posts.

I am a full-time student this semester.  I haven't been a full-time student since 2002.  Welcome to a university.  The first week was okay.  It was more than I'm used to, and everything seemed like it would be hard work, but it felt manageable.  The second week, the gloves came off.  I thought I would lose my mind.  I've had to adjust things, but I'm making it work.

I really enjoy being a student.  I listen to some of the young kids in my classes gripe about teachers and classes and how they are boring and they would rather do almost anything else than go to class.  I don't feel that way about any of my four classes.  I think my art teacher is slightly insane, but that's the only thing.  I really like my classes.  I would really like to just be a student and not be working.  If only.  But I am getting to know the campus better, figuring out how to manage the HORRIFIC parking situation, and I am loving it.

Of course, I am still working.  And working.  And working.  I'm so over working all the time.  But it has to be done.

There have been some positive developments in my family situation, but I would rather dedicate an independent post to that subject.  I will say that some of the pressure has been lifted, at least for me, and I have experienced a greater happiness in regard to the situation.

I am looking forward to seeing my sisters soon.  My girlfriend's brother is getting married in October in the same city where my both of my sisters live.  I usually have a great time with them and it's always good to see my nieces and nephew.  They're growing up so quickly and they are so much fun!

Other than that, I'm just enjoying football and fantasy football and trying to enjoy the little things in my life.  I'm pretty sure that my life is happening at light speed, but I'm loving it.
