Long time no type!

Hello fellow bloggers and readers. I have started my new semester with my Stats class and Philosophy of the Person class. I had to drop the philosopy class two weeks in because of some difficulties in the class. I am still learning my limitation with handling course work. Right now with having the baby, that class would have been too much to handle. I would rather take a "W" on my transcript oppose to a grade that would effect my 3.76 GPA.

I am still on path to completing my pre-reqs by time I need to apply in the OT program in November. I am happy about that. This summer I am taking a Women and Religion with Prof. Cato, and American Presidency with Father Issac. I love him. I had a Christin Tradition class with him and he explain to the class how he was previously a monk and how he loves his little Yorkie. It was soooo sweet. At the end of class he would pull up clips of the dog on You Tube. LOL. He is such a sweet guy.

In personal news, I have broken out in a horrible rash that all strated with getting poison ivy. It started about two weeks ago had has not stopped spreading since. It itches, I have been prescribed meds that are suppose to help, but the rash keeps growing. I think I am going to make an appointment with a dermatologist. The Dr. said he "believes" that the poison ivy has mutated and I need to see an allergist. Oh, I am going to see the allergist but I want to know what the dermatologist think because I still breastfeed and I am itching like crazy. I am keeping everything in mind to not take any allergy meds to help with the itching because it drys out breast milk. Soooooo scratch scratch scratch!

I hope all is doing well with everyone else. I have been keeping up with some other OT students blogs and they are so motivating for me. It makes me feel like I am already in the program. I really appreciate their time in keeping everyone updated because these blogs are so helpful.

You all take care, type to you soon!

O Why do I procratinate?

I now I said months ago that I was going to apply for scholarships, but guess what? Yep! I did not do it and now that I know my financial aid is low, boy do I wish I had applied. I know next school year I will have to apply everywhere, since the tuition for the OT program is more than double of what I am paying now. There are still a few scholarship opportunities open, so I am going to put my best foot forward and apply to those. My financial aid advisor made a good statement, " applying to scholarships is like a part-time job, whatever you put into it, is what you get out of it," which I completely agree with.

Oh, by the way I go back to work next week after being off for  six months. OMG NEXT WEEK!!!!!!!!! Panic Attack. I am going to miss my baby girl. We have been going to daycare every morning since yesterday to ease MY anxiety. She did fairly well. She had tummy time while we where there today. She was just fine. I know she is going to be OK. I just need to bit the bullet and let my baby grow up. :-( I do not know if I want a one year old.  I know another six months away right? I just need to take it one day at a time.

Well the good news is that I ended this session with a 4.0 GPA. I am so thankful about that. One more session closer to applying to the OT program!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!

Best wishes to all of you!
