School and Work Combined Sucks

I love school, and I like things about my company, but both of them combined are draining. I forgot that going to school and work at the same time is draining. Thursdays have become my new Saturday mornings and I slept until 12 noon today. I haven't been in school since 2003 and even then I skipped all my classes and ended up hurting my GPA so badly, you'd think my college transcripts been sleeping under an elephant. At the same time I'm very excited about class. It turns out that all my classes are very hands on and its fun playing around with layers in Photoshop CS4. My Microsoft Word 2007 class is going to be fun and I'll finally know how to layout my own book without getting a template off, and that's powerful! My goal isn't to get straight A's and make the dean's list. That's irrelevant to me! My main goal is to really learn the material and understand what I'm doing in these courses. I'll be just as happy with 3 C's as I would be with 3 A's as long as I walk away from these courses having an excellent understanding of them so that I can apply them to what I'm going to be doing for the rest of my 1000 year life.

Two days until my birthday this upcoming Saturday and I love receiving gifts. You can send a birthday card or gift to my address below:
