Well I started attending college in August this year. I’m taking a few different classes. Developmental math, which is split into sections so you can focus on where your skills are lacking. I only needed to do 2 out of 5. We finished part 1 last week, I made a B on that class. This 2nd part is all algebra stuff and most of it is working well with me but time will tell.

My psychology class.. What can I say about it other than it sucks. Its not the content either. I love psychology especially the brain and senses. But no, the instructor. He’s droll. Monotonous and only reads whats on the slide, while we copy down the slide. Occasionally he’ll get talking and get the class involved and then drops it when its ready for the next slide. I’ve seen a few students with very valid questions being told “welll, uhhh, well, there is research about this or that” or a “we’re not totally sure yet but ” and he’ll cut off mid sentence. We had a test in his class last week that no one was prepared for. I saw a classmate from that class going ro our speecj class and she said everybody failed pretty much. Said there were or two A’s and a B or two, some Cs,Ds, and a lot of Fs. I’ve got a hankering that one of those A’s or B’s might be me, it’d be cool if it was.

My US History I class is awesome, there’s only 4-5 of us there at a time we all get along pretty well, there’s this one pretty girl there who sits a few feet away. Tomorrow is our last US History I class then after fall break, Next Thursday Oct 18, 2012 will be the start of US History II (these history classes are meant for US I 1 semester,  US2 another semester) But I think out great wonderful teacher Zachary Rupley handled it well and we are doing well in that class and *GASP* learning something. He’s cool, good survey on him when they pass them out. I suggest if you need a US history teacher take himl

My last class is Speech. Love the teacher, shes awesome, some of the class is nice.  A lot more people than I’m used to in my other classes. Pretty easy class and I’m learning stuff. I recommend Rupley for history and KC Gott for speech and Women studies.

Which brings me to my point. I missed tonight’s speech class due to being sick. I had picked up something awhile back and was starting to feel better and went ahead and got my flu shot Monday while picking up some meds, we were worried it might kill me cause of my egg allergy but alas I live! I did have some hives and itching and such but no where near as bad as that time I went into full blown Anaphylaxis. The only problem so far has been aching body. Thighs, arm muscles, back pain, neck and headache pain. Been pretty nauseous as well.

So I’m wondering if I have the flu, or a mild flu, or a cold or something with the added benefit flu.

I’m trying to get my TiVo connected to the phone line again so it can update itself and hopefully get it going again.

I’ve been going over plans to re-d0 m network, need to move the ProCurve up a bit then run a few drops there and let it handle most of my systems. Some of my switches are a little out of date so may end up upgrading in the near future.

I’ve been sick for the past few weeks. Started out like a bronchitis started going away so went and   got a flu shot on Monday. Now I’m feeling pretty shitty. It’s very difficult to stand up, my thighs and arms a very sore and tender to touch. My back hurts, I am running fevers on and off, having some nausea here and there. Due to this I’ve missed a few classes this week, Math on Monday I went to see what teacher though if I should stay and turn in my notebook and was told I could leave.

I completey missed my physhology class cause I didn’t want to see my test and since I felt so awful I thought that I might go off on him about his shitty “teaching” which involves him reading from the slides we’re simultaneously copying down. Its just so freaking boring and dull. I might record this entire next class.

I’m looking forward to US History II mainly cause of Rupley. Hes a great instructor and I’ve learned more from him than the other 4 combined. Plus he teaches with his heart and emotions. Gets the class involved like its should be.

Anyway missed speech class that I was looking forward to going to but she said I’d be bessst if I left if theres any posibility ofme spreading my illness.

Hopefully I’ll start feeling better soon.
