Finally Ready to Take a Break

Sunday, August 17, 2014

I turned in the last of my assignments from my summer classes somewhere around 10 pm last night. I am finally ready to take a real break from school work. My first year of grad school is officially completed! Only two more to go. I have a break now until the day after Labor Day and I must admit that I had no idea how much stress I was carrying. Since I turned in my assignments it is as if a huge weight rolled off of my shoulders. I slept really well last night and woke up without any sense of urgency to get up and get to it. It feels good to have a real break.

Summer Progress Report

Saturday, August 16, 2014

Good morning, Spark Community! I decided to weigh in this morning. I have managed to lose 5 pounds over the summer.

The stress of working full time and going to school full time makes it very difficult for me to take care of myself. So I am very proud of that accomplishment. I have a two week break until I start my next class so I thought that I would take the time to reset my goals and plan for the coming year. Still have not lost sight of the goal, but I have definitely needed to adjust my thinking to long term changes in lifestyle that are manageable as I continue to work my way through grad school.

One day at a time I am making healthy changes!

Final Exam is Behind Me

Friday, August 15, 2014

Well, the exam last night was difficult. My professor definitely did what she said she was going to do. It required more time and effort than the first exam and the questions were much more difficult. The good news is that it is over. Of course, I don't know how I did yet, but as long as I passed I am not going to be upset. Thanks to all of you who posted your words of encouragement and talked me through the process. I am extremely grateful!

Final Exam Tonight

Thursday, August 14, 2014

I have spent most of the day going over my notes and the study guide that we were given to prepare for the exam that I need to take this evening. Although I have done my best to prepare, I do not feel prepared. I am just praying that I will remember all that I have read and studied. Our professor told us that she thought the last exam was a little too easy so she has increased the weight of this exam and expects it to require more from us than the last one. I need to relax, but I am not there yet. I will be walking out the door and headed that way very soon. Turning it all over because I can not do anything else with this experience but simply walk it out. Hoping to finish strong tonight.

Final Exam on my mind

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

So today is my last day before my final exam in Research Design and Statistics. I still have a take home portion of the exam to do that I must turn in when I go to take my final exam tomorrow night. I have heard from my classmates that it is a test in and of itself so I am hoping to be up for the challenge today. I will be so glad to have this class behind me.
