Well a lot has happened over the past weekend/week.
One. I was able to retake my Sociology test (see below for details on the first go round); I ended up making 51 out of 60, which is an 85. Then the teacher gave a 10% curve…which brings my test up to a 93…an A!! Totally excited!! She also posted on blackboard today that we have an opportunity to do a paper for ten points that will be added to our lowest test score. I am going to work on that tomorrow, so I will have some cushion for the final. Lord help us!!
Two. After work on Saturday I went to Jonesboro with my mom. Our main goal was to go so I could pick out some scrub tops that my boss is purchasing for us (since I missed out on the week before trip). It took me an HOUR…yes you read that correctly, an hour. My body is shaped not to fit into the scrubs comfortably. I found a couple of styles that were, as Goldilocks would say, ‘Just Right’…so I bought like all five of them in that style. Just kidding, but not really, at least three of them are the same type shirt…and they are OH SO COMFORTABLE. After doing that, we hit the mall and then mom took me out for my birthday (which was Monday 4/19).
Three. Church was Sunday (of course)…and it rocked! Sunday was a crazy day for me. I had an amazing roller coaster ride emotionally, and I didn’t know weather to be happy or sad that my birthday was the coming up, and how I was going to deal with another situation that I was facing. Then to top it all off I acted like a crazy lady in another situation…it’s a wonder I’ve not been committed to the funny farm yet. Then Sunday night arrived and God moved in to our church service, and He reminded me of some things and let me know that He was there…regardless. Topped the night off with chicken and dumplings and then friends over for Smallville. A good day.
Four. Monday. My birthday. April 19. A day of many sad occasions that have transpired over the years. The first was the beginning of the Revolutionary war, with the shot that was heard around the world. Then there’s Waco, TX, and the Davidian compound incident. Then you have the Oklahoma City Bombing. Many of these things did not even get a bleep on the radar this year…of course with under water volcano’s erupting and disrupting flight in the Northern Hemisphere…well ya know. Then this year, this past Monday, my aunt lost her mother. I worked all day, skipped class and studied for my Psychology test this Thursday instead (two chapters to read and go over). Relaxed.
It was a busy and somewhat crazy weekend…but hey, that’s life. I’m looking forward to the end of the semester (four weeks away)…just so I can start again the next week. Summer classes here I come!! Hopefully I get into the nursing program and this all works out…testing in July! :)
That’s all for now. Until later! ERM
