killing time…

Filed under: school, life — suzanne henderson @ 12:26 pm

I was killing time catching up on reading, but then I looked at my page. Wow, my typing is terrible. The misspelled words, the word substitutions, so many problems. I remember going through everything once and correcting all the spelling and grammar errors. But I think that was three or four years ago and the volume of content since there makes that idea impossible. Of course, I could just focus on making sure I have no more errors in the future, but that also means that nothing will ever get published. I can barely find time to write, much less take the time to nit pick every entry for errors. Especially since I normally do read over everything once or twice, but unless I print it out, I don’t see the errors. So much for that idea. Guess I will just have to accept the fact that the world will probably believe that I am just an idiot who can’t write. I mean, that’s their choice and I know the difference, so who cares. Let’s just hope that I never become terribly famous to the point that people decide to start digging up all sorts of dirt on me. Cause then they may just take my poor spelling skills and typing errors and fly them loudly to denounce my credibility. Of course, I’d just argue that having great ideas doesn’t mean you have to know how to spell them correctly. Ha!

This is a slow week, thank goodness. I seem to be alternating slow and over-scheduled weeks lately. We’re having some friends over for dinner tonight, but since I’d be cooking anyways, that doesn’t add any real activity to the week. This weekend M&M will be out of town and Chris and Alex are heading down to a metal working flea market in Virginia. Yippee! That means that I will have the house to myself for a while. I’m pretty excited about that. Chris seems to think that there is something dysfunctional about being happy when people are gone, specifically when I am happy when M&M are out of the house. I try to explain the fact that I’ve never really lived with anyone before. Sure, I’ve lived with partners and Alex, but that is different. It is the concept of people being somewhat removed being in the same house that makes it different. Chris has always lived with people and so I guess it is just natural for him to always have people about. Me, I just like knowing that it is just me (or us) in the house. Not that it matters at all, because the majority of the time M&M are asleep or hiding out in their room. I guess I can’t explain the difference; it is just something that I like. And especially because that means that I can get some cleaning done in the house without interruptions.

Right now I am just waiting for my Educational Measurements and Statistics class to start. We had a midterm on Monday; I doubt that we will get the scores back today. I am sure that I did well on the test. However, the other EDMS midterm I had yesterday didn’t feel like it went as well. I’m minorly irked about that, but I’ve decided to get over it. I’ll just know how to prepare for her tests in the future. But most importantly, ignore her notes and just read the book. Sigh, I prefer to get out of a class without actually reading the book. It is working pretty well in my other classes so far. I’ve missed my math class twice this week. I guess the only problem with that is the attitude I’ll get from the instructor for it. He wants us to pass the class and the only way that is possible (according to him) is to come to class. Well, we’re doing really simple stuff right now and the midterms and extra am-snuggles won out the past two days. But, I think I’ll make a point of making it to class the rest of the week. And also make it to the gym the rest of the week as well. It seem the fitness schedule is constantly being restructured each week. But then, I do make up various justifications for why it is okay. And I guess that knowing how I am doing fitness wise, and have been steadily losing weigth, makes it all okay in the end. However, I feel my mood/energy decreasing ever so slightly and know that is the best way to perk them both back up. If it weren’t for the dinner party and the “future securement” plans for later, I’d probably head over to the gym after this class. But, things to do and Wednesday is the best day I have for doing things. M&M are gone and I get out of class before 2pm. And now, time for that class… not a bad way to kill time.
