Where in the world have I been?

It's been a while since I have updated. I haven't really had time to update anything, including my own calendar. School and work seem to take up most of my time. I did take 2 ½ days of vacation since I was going to lose them anyway. Why not spend the time off working on homework. That sounds like fun doesn't it? Maybe. So, not much has been going on. I am over halfway through my second semester of grad school. It has been a bumpy ride this semester since I am taking more than one class and still working full-time. One of my teachers in crazy and I can't seem to comprehend what is going on in that class, but I still have an A. Thank goodness for participation points. My other class is interesting and I really like it. The discussions get you thinking. It's also something that everyone who has a job has to deal with (Human Resources). I like that class because the professors make it interesting.

I did make time last night to attend the Sweet Sixteen games for the Oklahoma City Regional. That was a lot of fun except for the old people who know nothing about basketball that were sitting around me. I got to sit behind the OU bench and had a blast. After I was able to ignore the stupid comments from the old people and focus on the game, that is. The first game on Sunday night was at 6:30, so Mom and I went up early. I recorded the second half of the men's game and was going to try not to hear the outcome until I got home to watch it. That didn't work out so well. The first thing we see when we walk into the Ford Center is about 8 million TV's with the game being broadcast. If that wasn't enough, the old guy that was sitting in front of us decided to tell me the score as soon as he got to his seat. I tried to tell him that I was recording it and didn't want to know, but he told me anyway. I just decided I was going to know either way and was happy I picked UNC to win.

I guess this is a long enough break from homework and studying.

One question…When did you realize you had become an adult?

I realized I was an adult when I started getting paid like one and didn't have to borrow money from Mom all the time. It was an even bigger realization when I started back to school and still had to work full time. When you have to juggle more than one thing at a time, life seems to sneak up on you.

That's all for now
