So I started school two weeks ago and I am loving it.
I get out of the house for a few hours on M & W and actually see people my own age.
Talk about other things then babies and baby gear (which I love to talk about)
BUT I forgot about homework.. BLAH!
I am stoked to be in school and I am doing it to better my future but also for my daughter's future. I don't want to struggle like my parents did. I want to take care of my family.
I want to be able to do the things my parents couldn't.

I get off topic real fast... any who homework is the death of me!
I forgot how many hours you have to spend on it.
I just spent 5 hours last night on JUST math! I was shocked and my brain was totally fried.
Good thing though I just passed my three quizzes with flying colors :)
So I guess it pays off LOL

Now I have English homework to work on and this is a tad more difficult for myself.
Not English in general just the topic.
I have to to write a narrative essay about an experience where I felt empowered.
It can be a positive or negative experience and for some reason the only thing my brain can think about is when the sperm donor left me when we found out I was pregnant.
How I was empowered to do the right thing for my child and go back to school to better my life for her.
But it just seems like such a very personal matter, I just don't know if I want my WHOLE class or a few classmates knowing my struggle.
Then again I think it is a great way for me to really get all my thoughts and feelings into that paper. 

I have to start my brain-storming on it today so we shall see what I end up with.
My rough draft is due Monday so I guess I better make up my mind now.

Well I am off to do English homework, dr's appointment, then more homework with my friend Stacey!

Hope you all have a great Tuesday!

P.S. I was thinking about getting together with whoever is in Southern California and maybe do a lunch. Would anyone in the are be interested?

YOU GO GIRL! I'm envious of your ability and sit and do math. Math is probably the one thing that can still make me cry. Seriously, good job.
