Thank God. -=giggle=- It wasn't a bad day just a busy and tiring one. I finally got some sleep lastnight. Not nightmare free but at least my body slept through them. It's weird, I have never had this many bad dreams in a row. I talked to my friend Jan about them and she thinks I am stressed about something or feeling out of place. Well I was stressed about something... and now that has been taken care of. I dropped my Spanish Course. -=does a hooray dance=- I know, I know... I'll never get anywhere by quitting something I am having a hard time at. Here's my chain of thought:

*Cue Rationalization*

It's one day a week. I obviously am not grasping the concept of a foreign language easily. This leads me to believe that I need a class that is on a constant basis. Maybe 2 to 3 times a week. As it stands right now, I go to class and practice my arse off in between classes but by the time I get back there. I have lost something in the gap. I am not grasping it. I hate going to class, I dread the homework projects and I panic on exam days. I nearly cried that last exam because I just sat looking at it. I had no idea what to do. Not a clue what the questions *in Spanish* were asking me. I don't like to fail anything, so instead I gracefully withdrew and I'll go from there. It turns out though I have been walking around without any math credits. That seems to be a big deal considering all Psychology programs are usually governed around Math and Science. The College flubbed and transferred a credit that is not applicable. Which doesn't matter. I need a refresher course on math anyway. Science is no biggy. I just can't wait to get back into my Psych classes.

Work was really busy today. I pretty much didn't sit down at all. Tomorrow should be even better considering I let the filing get a little ahead of me today. I talked to an old friend that I haven't heard from in 3+ years. Life seems to be alright in his general region of Ohio. Although I wish he had successfully escaped from that place. Mansfield, bleeds you dry.

In knitting news, I am on 109 stitches of my poncho. 11 more to go and I can start decreasing and working on the back. -=does a jig=- I did a couple of rows on the March-Along shawl but started getting extremely tired so I put it away.

I can't wait for the Secret Pal Festivities to begin. It should be sooo much fun. I keep checking my email to see if I was designated anyone yet. We'll soon see, it's the 26th so it should be long now.

Anyways, that's all that's on my brain for now. I'll post more when I think of more.

    Yeah, foreign language wasn't my thing either. Of course this is going back to taking a foreign language in high school. ...and to give you an idea of how much of a geek I was back then, I was taking Latin. Yes, you read that right, Latin. I hope you have nothing but good dreams from now on!!
