Good late afternoon here in Wisconsin. It has been cloudy and overcast all day long with rain in the forecast for this day. What a perfect Halloween kind of day for everyone who celebrates the occasion. Not me…I am older now and live in a building that does not allow kids to come in and get candy from door to door. Anyway, Halloween is not the same anymore where when I was younger, we went out in the dark of night trick and treating – now it is still daylight for the kids to go door to door. So much bad things happen now a days that makes this whole world sad from time to time. What makes it worse is the fact that down the road is a halfway house for those men who just got out of jail and have a chance to live independently as much as possible with rules still under the roof. That is creepy enough. I won’t go out there tonight to even take my Molly pup friend for a leisurely stroll around the block tonight. Why am I seemingly spooked? It is because I believe Halloween should not even be a holiday of dress up and going door to door. That is why I am spooked today somewhat.
Anyway, on a better note, my Religion class is now over and Math 209 begins tomorrow morning – yeah! I will be attending my eighth class at University of Phoenix tomorrow. This class I just ended was fun and worthwhile. From what marks I have been getting, I am going to get a A in the class with no problem – even a B if the team paper and presentation isn’t our best work as a team throughout the three weeks we worked together. Anyway, I am looking forward to Math 209 tomorrow! Yeah!
Today marks the last day of October … November beginning in several hours from now. This weekend was fabulous to a point. To tell of something funny, I do have to admit that I forgot about Daylight’s savings time this time around. Look what happens when my mom does not call me to remind me? LOL. I was reminded by my friend KW and I forgot anyway, lol. With today being the last day of October, I am looking forward to the month of November beginning in so many hours from now.
To touch base on what happened this weekend, I do have to admit that I had a little bit of fear of what my blood work would be like when I got them done on Friday. Yes, I was so nervous that I was a total ball of fear. I did not rely on God taking care of me at all at the moment before I found out how good my blood counts were. How embarassing! Anyway, my kidney’s health is doing great and November 16th, I will be going to Madison for my yearly check up and flu shot.
Time for me to go for now. Bye for now.
I do have to admit that the last couple of days have been like a rollercoaster ride for me. Today is definitely calmer and I am pretty cool. Even though I am calm and cool, I am feeling the reprocussions of what happened between three teammates and myself in regards to a teammate that has been acting so immaturely. Yes, immaturely! Neither of us four who are on the team in our religion class have not heard from this team member since yesterday and the day before. To be honset with you, I won’t be surprised if she is not doing well and failing the course because she does not even post much like it says to for class time and discussion…but whom am I to judge and assume. We all know that assuming is not good whatsoever. Anyway, I am not resposible for this teammate’s actions when I know I did not do anything wrong. Anyway, I am still feel the after affacts of what happened but I am feeling much better now/tonight.
In class the last couple of days I have been reading posts like this:
I don’t know what is going on with Kristi or Laurie or Daniella they need to
read the post I sent to my part as a post on the 23rd, and I asked Kristi to
call me Saturday to discuss the paper, but she didn’t so I posted my
individual paper and my portion of the team assignment to the learning team
folder, I do not appreciate them number one making post to me in the main
classroom and then saying my name wasn’t added to the paper because of what
they claimed I didn’t do,just because they didn’t scroll down and read the
post, if they wanted me to do the conclusion they should’ve called me before
today and told me or something, this needs to be dealt with correctly I
don’t appreciate this at all, they were totally out of order!
Danielle and Kristi do not post to me in the main newsgroup I did my portion
of the paper and for you two to say that I have done nothing is a lie I
don’t know what exactly you were saying to me in the post that you posted
but you Kristi have my number and I asked you to call me Saturday and you
didn’t so I posted my portion that I said that I would do, so maybe one of
you can do it.
Honestly I do not know what to think right now. I was not happy yesterdaya when I read the above post and I got more angry at the post above that one. I do not know what to think and believe me, I am royally upset and I wish some people would just grow up and handle their situations more appropriately before taknig action the way this DW did! Man am I REALLY NOT HAPPY!
I have once again lapsed into a time where I did not write in my journal. I have been so very busy with school, but this weekend I learned to put time into my world of self and give time for myself. It sure does feel real good right now to have time for myself reading and writing and those two things have nothing to do with school. I have read a book titled “All Through the Night” which the author of the book is Mary Higgins Clark. I was able to read the entire book in one day since there were only twenty-nine chapters and fairly short. Now I am taking the time to read another Mary Higgins Clark book titled “I’ll Be Seeing You” which I have alrady read over twenty chapters of sixty-two. It sure does feel good to escape the real world of homework, television, and problems that need to be faced for a short time. Anyway, this weekend was my weekend and it sure felt good. Even with my time spent reading, I have realized how much stress has been relieved from my heavy heart. I will be back later.
I believe this is going to be my last diary entry of October 14th, 2005, and it might also be fairly short. Not a whole lot has happened since my afternoon thoughts were written. I played a game at Yahoo for a bit, read a Mary Higgins Clark book most of the afternoon, and just relaxed. It felt good to read for pleasure and not just homework reading a textbook of information. Having twenty-nine chapters to read in my MHC book, I have about ten to nine chapters yet to read and I could finish it by the end of the weekend which would be Sunday night. Did not even take a nap today so I should be able to sleep well tonight but I am not even sure of that as I am still a lot wound up from today’s happenings of almost nothingness. I have not seen my cat Emilee Cuddles since the pest control man came and sprayed so no bugs come during the last days of Sumnmer and through the Fall months to winter. She has been a good girl though. Even my friend JO is in the hospital right now and after talking to her briefly, she is tired and hurting as her back went out the other day. I feel bad for JO. The weather is still nice and cool and the sun is about ready to go down for the night and darkness will be upon us shortly here in good ol’ Wisconsin. I am thinking of doing some research on Buddhism VS Hinduism tonight for my individual paper due Monday. I have been coming up with ideas. Does anyone know of anyone being able to write essays or term papers without an outline in the works first? If not, I might be one of those people that can write essays and term papers without using an outline first! Oh boy and oh oh. Anyway, I am going to go for the night and I will be back tomorrow night after Sabbath is over.
WOW! I felt pretty tired when I was awakened around 8 a.m. by the telephone ringing, It was ny friend KW calling me to let me know that she was going to visit her MIL for the day while her husband was working. The pest control man came and sprayed my apartment a little after 9 a.m., and boy, I am finally feeling like I am awake. The sun is shining and the weather is crisp and cool. I am glad the Fall season is coming as the summer months got so terribly hot and muggy. I just winter would not be so cold and snowy – I hate the cold and snowy weather. Even today my right arm is feeling the aches and the discomfort of falling on it a last month. I even got part of my teamwork assignment done for my team this morning. That is all I can pretty much think about – math and my religion class, and getting my individual assignment done for Monday night before midnight. It has not been the quietest this morning or early afternoon. Noises from the apartment below is going on right now. I do not know if someone is moving in or maintenance is working on the place for a move in to happen shortly. I am just going to take it easy and let my day flow smoothly – as smoothly as possible.
I do not know what else to title this entry at the moment so maybe the title will say it all. Today my cleaning lady came for about an hour and we got a little bit more of my hall closet done. I feel I am making progress in my apartment that now feels like a home after all the years I have lived at TM. I am keeping it up on a weekly basis even if I backslid a couple of times since my cleaning lady and I began at the beginning of the year. So far my apartment is feeling like a wonderful home to me – a place I will never leave for a long time. As I sit here I have realized that I have lived at TM the longest I have ever lived in any apartment since I moved out of my parents home. I have a home and I love it even though it is an apartment.
Today the weather is chilly and cloudy. I am kind of moody and tired but everything seems to go smoothly to a bearable smoothness. I have been attending class onlnie and got some homework done that is due today and now I am working on my part of the Buddhism matrix and individual paper, and part of the presentation for class.
Not a whole lot has gone on lately. Just been busy with school that I have not had the time to sit down for even fifteen minutes to read a good mystery novel. If I have time to write more, I will but please do not guarantee I will be back anymore today. I have to run for now. Hope everyone has a good afternoon. Bye for now but not forever.
It seems impossible that time has gone by so quickly once again, but it sure has. The last time I had written was eight days ago?! WOW! I have been a very busy girl with school and my personal life. It just has been so busy and so wild in a good way.
Grandma would have been 86 years old if she was alive today but she has been gone since 1997. I miss her yes, but I am dealing with my life at school and around me just fine. I did not leave my apartment at all today. Went to bed kind of late last night and slept in and did my homework in the afternoon and took a short nap. I am feeling ok – just a little out of it. I will be ok. I have not benn feeling good lately due to a cold like thingy and believe me I have had it! I will write more later.
Today I learned that I passed Math208 with a B- and I am very happy about that! I worked hard as well as struggled in math208 to get the score. I am very happy about that as well. Not much is going on right now. Feeling tired and a little worn out.
