Is the craziness settling down?

The semester started out with more than the usual dose of craziness. In the two weeks leading up to the semester I learned that my Intermediate Statistics course would not count toward my requirements. I took it in 2002, when I was also busy caring for my dying grandmother. The final was about a week after she died. I got a C in the class, which was actually a relief since I had expected worse, but sadly we all missed that to count the minimum grade allowed is a B-. SO after almost 5 years of not sitting in a student desk, I am back in that role for this semester. And I am really studying so I get this nailed and out of the way.

The first two weeks of classes have been tough to get in synch, what with work, class, studying, and commuting...oh and the usual stuff I have to do at home like cook and clean (occasionally) and sleep. I am very glad that I am not a new PhD student at this point in my life...not sure I have that kind of energy back yet. LOL And I'm glad that I had a long period where I didn't have to work and could focus on my studies and my life. I'm spoiled I know...I wish I could have more of it and pass it on to the rest of you.

For this semester I have a lot on my plate that's for sure, what with studying for a subject I have absolutely no talent for, finishing my quals paper, working, and attempting to have a bit of a life around the edges. I know I can do it, and it's probably even good for me to force me back into the groove.

No matter what, life is good!
