So I'm not stupid, just average!

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

- Eleanor Roosevelt

UPDATE: Got the results of my midterm weekend from hell and they weren't AS bad as I thought. I consistently earned a C on all three. The reason I specify the phrase "earned" is because in my microeconomics class the teacher just randomly decided to give everyone 20 extra points (guess I wasn't the only one who had a bad weekend eh?), so I actually ended up getting an A on the test...but thats not what I earned....

That brings me to the quote of the day. It feels like over the last 6 months I have been doing things that I think I can not do all the time. It has been a slow process but I am finally starting to see some results coming through. I am finally getting my financial aid, and I'm almost through training at work. While there are still a lot of things I currently don't think I can do, I didn't think I could make it 6 months after the break up and I did so maybe I am wrong about those other things. The one thing I should have learned by now is that I can and will do whatever it takes to survive.

In other news, I took my health insight questionaire today for open enrollment this morning. This is a questionnaire that I had completed originally when I first started working. Suprisingly my overall health percentage has decreased. Not a good sign, but I'm working on it.

Hope all is going well for everyone. I'm just happy that Monday is over and I'm going to go lie down now :-)

I wanted to just lie down after Monday too. Didn't happen until much later than I had anticipated. Explains why I didn't hear from you either. Hope you're feeling better. House sitting at the folks. THEY GOT TIVO AND HBO...I'm in heaven.

Sonya...yeah you gotta be careful with hobbes, he's sometimes gets hungry but I can't find anything to feed him :-P

Annie...good luck with your all day event on Saturday. I have school from 8-5 every saturday so I understand how your feeling. I can't decide if I will do saturdays again next semester or change to 12 hour days Monday through Thursday. We'll see

Cjristie...I was exhausted yesterday, spent most of the night helping mom with her resume. I got a new phone/answering machine combo today so I'll call you soon!

I'm about to withdraw from a course thanks to it's midterm. I haven't bombed it but it will affect my GPA if I don't get it off of my record.

I love school.
