A not-so wordless Wednesday

I was tagged by Mommy of Many Faces to do this picture post! It looked fun, so I thought I’d try it out.

The directions said to go to your pictures and open up the first folder, to the 10th photo, and post it, then tell a story about it.

Here is my picture…

It’s Matt and I circa 2004. I swear I didn't have a black eye. Anyways, we were sophomores in high school, and we were at the band banquet. This was before we declared ourselves ‘best f*ing friends forever’, but we were well on our way. He just happened to be dating my ‘best friend’ at the time, they broke up, and eventually our [the girl's & mine ( i don't know if that is grammatically correct, sorry)] friendship kind of decayed. It’s funny how some friends come and go, isn’t it? But Matt and I are still bfff’s; so that’s all that matters.

I'm not going to tag anyone for this picture post, but I welcome anyone to do it!

Today was the first day of classes, and by 2 pm I already had my mind made up that I was dropping a class. Did I mention that I am taking 18 hours? Yea, and by two o’clock I was already assigned to do three lesson plans, and two time consuming projects [due by monday]. It’s the first day of school, people, and I still have 4 classes that I haven’t even been to yet, and I’m sure the teachers are sitting patiently waiting for me [& everyone else] to arrive so they can throw their load at me us, too! Well, 15 hours is enough for me, so one has got to go. Plus, I already looked at my check sheet [the thing that tells me how many classes I have left before internship] and according to that, I only have 12 hours next semester, if I keep my 18 this semester. So why not drop one this semester, and add it to next semester, so I will have an even load of 15 each time. Right? Doesn’t that make a little more sense? You all should know by now how stressed out I get. I need this :) My mind is already made up, I just have to get it approved by my adviser.

*sigh* enough complaining to you all!

Now for the good stuff. Since I burdened you with my sob story yesterday about not being able to get a new car, I am pleased to announce that we did get a new used car. And that issue will have it’s very own little post for you all to hear about, possibly tomorrow. Until then, I’ll leave you with a word of gratitude, and a doodle, [that perhaps only Matt will understand] *I just want to thank all of you who read the blog and sent nice words my way. I really believe that it helped [along with all of the praying/pleading I did with God yesterday]. *

Good ol band banquets huh? And I have to say about school that 15 then 15 makes perfect sense to me

I can't imagine taking 18 hours!!!

I try not to take more than 4 classes at a time. Lesson plans? Are you in education?

I'm doubling in English/secondary ed.
