Summer is half way through, so I decided to put up a little update to let people know what's going on.
I haven't been as active on dA this summer as I would have liked, both for fawnlings and art/stories in general. This was partly due to my online course, and also due to real life issues and everyday living things.
I'm happy to say, my online class is now OVER! I'm so happy to be done with it! The professor, while he knew what he was talking about, was disorganized and kept adding stuff at the last minute, and even changed the syllabus a few days before we ended. He didn't really answer questions. But, so far I've gotten three exams back, and did well on all of them. Hopefully this last exam will be graded soon and it also got a good grade. I did enjoy learning about the material (Advanced Nutrition, we branched from bio-chemistry to going to the whole animal and how it all works together) but it was a lot of material for 4 weeks. AND, this past semester (spring 2016) I made the Dean's List!! Whoohoo! Hoping I can keep that trend going for this fall.
I still haven't gotten a job this summer, and I don't know if I should try? I'd only be able to work for a month and a half, probably less. Once I go back to school, I'll be applying to jobs around there, but I don't know if I should now. May as well at least try to submit the applications. I really wanted to get a job earlier in the summer, but due to some personal issues, I wasn't able to.
Which leads to my biggest disappointment (at least right now), I won't be able to get an apartment for this school year. It'll be one more year in the dorms. I'm slowly coming to grips with it, but it still gets to me. I know it's only one year, but last year was really hard on me. And I keep expecting it to happen all over again. I will be trying to get out more, join some clubs to have interactions with people, but it'll be hard. And my boyfriend also won't be there, and so many people I knew have graduated. We'll just see what happens.
But, looking more to the good side/setting some goals. I'm hoping to start writing my Birgitta story, try to do some more art now the class is over, start working out in earnest, I'll be a T.A. next semester for one of my favorite professors, and I'll be . in an English Riding class.
So long story short, disappointed in life, glad that class is done, just want to fast forward a year. I'm going to be really trying to make things better and taking a better look at them, but it's HARD. I'm hoping the next journal I post is going to be happier and more positive, since there is enough negativity in the world and I don't like adding to it.
I hope everyone is having a good summer so far.
