My first term of college was successful! I work full time and I took 4 classes this term, which was a mistake, and I will not be repeating that! I took Introduction to Business, Word I, Business Editing I, and Fundamentals of Writing (aka Writing 90, two levels from Composition writing). I got an A in Business, a B in Word, a C in Editing (which was hard, there was a lot of memorization, and I am happy to have gotten that C!), and a Pass in Writing, which would have been an A if I'd gotten a letter grade for it. The percentage was 93%. My writing teacher gave me a pass to jump right into Composition writing, which is 121. I don't have to placement test or anything! The total GPA for the term is 3.1. That's way better than anything I ever did in high school. I hated school then and just did what I had to do to pass. Unless it was one of my computer classes, that's the only place I enjoyed it.

Winter term begins January 5, and I will be just taking two classes. Business Laws I and Human Relations in Business. I'm looking forward to these classes, because I am going to go into Human Relations at work. HR has been my goal for the last few years. I always talked about it, but never went forward to try and complete anything. But now I am going to! Spring term I will be taking the writing 121 class. They say it's a big workload, so I'll just take that and probably the followup class to my Business Laws class.

Work is ridiculous and I am glad the holidays are over in less than two weeks. I am going to the Wizard Comic Book Convention at the end of January, and I'm really excited to go. It's my first con and I got the VIP pass to see Stephen Amell. A friend at work also got a VIP pass and we are going together!

Flash, Arrow, and Agents of SHIELD are all that get me through my TV these days. I did find out I will be definitely watching the Supergirl show next fall! I was already going to, but now, I have even more amazing news about it. Everyone knows that Jimmy Olsen is my favorite DC character. Well, he's going to be one of the main 4 supporting characters in it!! I am beyond the moon. And TNT's Titans will be amazing, too. Dick Grayson is one of the best superheroes.

My last post was about how I did my financial aid, but now I actually did something about it! I enrolled in a class! Part of the two year program. Class starts on June 23rd and it's a General Accounting I class. I haven't been this scared before.

I always talk about wanting to do change in my life, but I never follow through with it. Well today, I did it! I went and took my placement testing over at the community college. I gave them the rest of the stuff they needed for my financial aid paperwork. I'm either going to start taking classes in the summer or the fall, I'm undecided right now. We'll see!

But I finally started it. So now I can't say I just try. I actually did something about it!

I try to blog, but it's had. I forget I have it until I remember again. Maybe someday I will make it consistent!

I got my tax money and I bought a new TV and a new laptop. I used express shipping for them both. I should get the TV on Monday, and the laptop on Tuesday. The laptop case is red, and I am looking at a mouse, and it's yellow!

It's amazing, because it's just like The Flash~ I even plan to name it after Barry. #obsessed #yes

But, my laptop will be amazing, because it has a blu-ray player in it. That was my number 1 priority for my purchase of it. And 6GB of RAM, and 750GB harddrive. And Gateway brand. In other words, it will be amazing. #yes

Everyone at work made me dress up today for Halloween. I was boycotting it (because a friend and I were going to do a Doctor Who theme together but she bailed on me), but they said I had to, anyway. So I did. I bought fairy wings and a purple wig and attempted to do my makeup (and got some help from someone at work to better it), and then stupidly, I left my phone at home on the way to work. A friend is supposed to be sending me the picture she took of me. But here's my wig: I think is one of the better pictures I've taken of myself lately.

This weekend we are going to the beach. It will be okay. Sad, though. We are taking my mom's ashes down and throwing them into the ocean, which was something she has always wanted. We are also going to finally throw my grandmother's over, too. It's going to be hard, but I think it will finally be the closure that I've been needing. I can finally move forward with my life.

A friend took me to a chinese restaurant tonight, and this was my fortune. Let's hope it's true, right?
