Today is the last day of the Winter Session and I kept my commitment...

Well, today is the last day of the Winter Session at school. I get a 2 week break before the Spring Session. I don't know what I was thinking about when I graduated from undergrad school! It definitely was not graduate future...2 children...BILLS...ETC!!! So far I have an A for one of my courses (busness information systems, of course - that is my major :) ). My statistics professor is keeping me in stitches. All I need is 125 points to get an A. I AM DYING OVER HERE PROFESSOR! POST THE GRADE PLEASE! ALL EYES ON ME! POST THE GRADE PLEASE! I am normally not selfish...only during the final grading period :)

My gift to myself for doing so well this quarter ( it is really a coincidence, but who's noticing) I go to see my favorite loctician this weekend - SHARON! I can't wait to sit in her client chair and not have to think about school work! (I need to contact her to confirm my appointment. I hope we are still on.)

Stay tuned to my next post. I have some great news to share!

Managing My Time

I know that I have not posted in a minute...okay, a month. My time management has gone amuck (did I spell that right?). Graduate school has been a beast this quarter. Next week is the end of the winter quarter and I get 2 week off before the next quarter begins. So, I promise to do a couple of things:
  • get a handle on managing my time better
  • post more often on my blog and blogs that I follow
  • clean-up my email ( I am so behind on those)
  • get back to my exercises in the morning before work
  • clean-up my house (at least make a GOOD stab at it)
  • do more cooking at home

I found out last week that I may possibly be done with graduate school Spring of 2010. You heard me, I will have my Masters in Information Systems one year from now! I am super excited! There are some data-developer and data-management classes that I want to take which will take another year, but I will graduate next Spring! This means that I will be able to start working on my Ph.D. sooner than I had planned!

A co-worker/friend sent me an article 2 weeks ago. It stated that there has been a study done that resultd in women increasing their chances of living longer if they have an optimistic view on life, Check out what it said about African American women, "These differences were more extreme in black women: optimists had a 44 percent lower risk of cancer-related death and cynically hostile women had a 142 percent higher risk of cancer death." More study needed to be done, but thus far I am elated on the results.

My MISM and Ph.D. will not just be a quiet accomplishment of personal satisfaction, but can assist me in making my mark on this earth, in this life.

Well that is all for now. I have got to finish my two final projects, online final, and study for my statistics final.

Next post will be the late evening of Thursday, March 26.
