Finished my SCI275 final and I’m gonna write my ETH125 final today….alll except for the bit with the reference I’m missing.  I hope to be back to sewing or something soon. 

On a side note, Sam reupped his wow account, and I’m a little jealous.  He’s not on his 80’s, Ill prolly join him arount the time cata comes out.  No raiding though; that’s a time sink and a half!

ETA: Finished writing my ETH125 final.  now I just need to revise and grammer check them.  I can do that in one week without much trouble.

Sam started school last week and is still settling in.  He’s trying to work out a schedule with his advisor that will allow him time to get his professional certifications while still in school.  He’s starting, of course, with the A+ certification and then we’ll go from there.

His classes are set up differently than mine.  I usually have a discussion heavy week in one class coincide with a writing heavy week in the other class.  In addition, I have a final project for both classes; it’s almost always a paper. 

Currently, his classes seem to be discussion based, though I expect that to change when he finishes the “welcome to college” type classes.  He also doesn’t have a final project; he has a midterm and a final exam.  I’m guessing the slow start has to do with the majors we chose and our past college experience.  I’m a business major and he’s going into technology and networks.  I have prior college experience, and Sam never even considered going before now.

I worry about how Sam will do.  He’s smart, so the actual school work isn’t an issue, but he’s already had the professor in one of his classes really rub him wrong.  This professor seems…not particularly good, and Sam has little patience for people he sees as incompetent.  Last night he talked about it with his advisor, so that’s good.  Just so long as he doesn’t poke the professor too hard in class via angry forum post and get himself in trouble.

I am going to get at least one of my finals down on paper today.  I’ve really gotten behind on these projects, so it’s time to crack down.  I expect the Ethnic Diversity final to give me issues.  I’m supposed to describe where I live from the viewpoint of my ethnic group….I’m mostly German.  Most of us, especially in this area, don’t have much connection to our ethnic past, except maybe a fondness for beer.  At least my environmental Science project will be easier; there’s a ton of information on acid deposition.

I’m cracking on with my linen shirt.  Linen is really easy to work with, so it’s coming together well.  I’m glad I did kiddo’s shirt first because the directions on this pattern are on the vague side and the pictures are tiny!  Fortunately, the construction is pretty basic.

It’s a free pattern, so I can’t complain too much.  It is drafted really well; the pieces fit together beautifully, and that’s the important part.

The fit isn’t bad, as far as I can tell.  It looks like it will be a little looses around the waist, but I plan on wearing a belt with it, so that may be ok.

Sam and I are trying to get on the same track at school, so we can arrange breaks at the same time.  I’ll just take a week between the next couple of classes, and before next summer we’ll be together.

Kiddo starts school in a little over 3 weeks and he’s actually excited about it.  That’s a nice change.

OK, I’ve been busy, between moving and school, and WOW burnout I dropped the idea of blogging for a while. 

Me and Sam are on a wow hiatus, I may decide to reup my account for Cataclysm, but I’m really not sure.  I’m really not giving it much thought. 

School is going well, but I have two claseses I really don’t like atm.  Enviromental Science and Ethnic Diversity… darn it, just give me some math!  I’m slogging through it though and next quarter will be better.  Sam starts school on Monday.  He’s going for Technology- communications and networking.  Were both really excited about that.  He’s even talking about getting some of the certifications too. 

While I’ve not picked up my knitting needles in months, I have started sewing again.  I fixed several of Sam’s things, made a skirt for me, and a shirt for JD.  The thrift store next to me sells fabric and patterns; be still my heart.
