... I am alive. I am still here. I am still reading your posts. Well, skimming your posts.

Intense does not even begin to describe the summer semester. My two classes right now are doing the amount of work each day that would have been done each week if it were a standard semester. So, I'm doing four weeks worth of work each week for TWO classes. Then a new class starts Monday. This is an online class, but I have been forewarned that it is also intense.

Don't think I'm complaining. I am not. I am somewhat nutty and I sort of enjoy a jam packed schedule like this. It helps me keep everything else in check. My priorities are more urgent because I have less time to get them done. Does that make sense?

The only thing I AM going to complain about is my language and literacy class. The instructor has her doctorate and she said in her masters program (which was similar to my program) they didn't study and research articles, case studies, or any data in general so she is having us read TONS of technically written research articles that is chock full of confusing language and hard to understand data. Seriously, it makes my head spin. Or just shut down. Seriously, she wrote on one of my papers "Did you read the article?"

Why, yes. Yes, I did. Did I comprehend it? Nope.

So, anyway. That is what is up with me. I'll be back soon. I promise. In the meantime. Tell me something good that is happening in your life right now. Anything!
