Well, I am just about recovered from wisdom tooth surgury. I am still experiencing a decent amount of pain, but it's been decided that a nerve was probably nicked. I saw the above image online and just had to put it in.
Mostly I am just trying to play catch up. The Monday after my surgery (which I had two weeks ago today) I had an exam. I thought that I would be fine to study and then take the exam, but that didn't pan out. So no study, severe pain and heavy narcotics and I ended up getting right at average and considering it's a cross listed undergrad-grad class, I am feeling pretty okay about it. I'll just have to make sure I do really well on the other two exams. After that exam I asked my prof in my other math class if I could just take the exam later and he said that I could take it after Spring Break. But now that means that I have to study extra hard. And I have this stupid little English class that I am behind in by four assignments. I know what I am doing this weekend....
So enough whining. Since I have been out of commission, I have had lots of time to think about what I want to do. Given the current economy and the number of people pursuing and MBA right now, I have decided that I don't want to do that (which as people who have been following might recall is the whole reason I went back to finish my undergrad). Instead I think that I will get my certification in Project Management (including taking a project management certificate course at one of my target universities). After that I am thinking about maybe getting a masters in Math since I am surprisingly enjoying my Math classes (and I say surprisingly because I never really liked them and I had to take alot of advanced (post calculus) at Purdue for computer science...I have no idea what is different a few years later since the classes are fairly similar).
But where does that leave my writing? I definetly want to finish my novel by the end of the year. I think that the majority of the writing will be done during the summer, but I need to keep chugging along during the spring. I think I am going to set two days a week to take a long lunch break and write for an hour and a half. I know that is alot less than most people reading this blog, but for now, until I catch up with all the stuff I had to put off while being sick, that is really the only time that I have. Durring the summer, on the other hand, I will write for an hour and a half every day. Just now I need that other time to study.
So, next week I should be following my blog schedule again, which I said last week, I know! But Monday I will blog about the drunken debauchery that is the South Side Irish Parade, which I shall be attending this weekend. Good times.
