Mid Week update....

Well this picture would be great if it were true! LOL I love the houses shoes lol. Well I am all but finished with my third week of the first session of my Fall Term at Baker. All I have to get posted is the math test. Then this marks the half way point. I think I have been writing papers in my sleep.

I figured out how to post via my ipod touch on here which will mean I'll be posting more I would think. It is easier sometimes to just use my ipod than to crank up the computer.

Been looking at masters programs. Sort of feeling overwhelemed with what to do. One place I talked to is a three year program going part-time for social work. They "highly" recommend working only part-time since the work is so demanding. I am going ot have to work it seems like its been forever. I've been living on financial aid. Maybe I will land a job with Michigan Department of Human Service and just work and go on vacations....lol...that would be nice.

Alright enough for now so I will ....


Trying email posting

I sure hope it's worth it.

Yesterday I spent about ten hours doing an assignment for my "Ethics" online class from Baker College. I am down to four classes. After this Fall Term I will have only ONE actually class that I will HAVE to take and if I remember thats just any 2 credit class I want to take....an elective I believe. The ten hours consisted of looking (only on the Baker Library site) for 3 "peer-reviewed" articles on the subject of my approved research paper. I must of looked through countless articles. Then I finally got it down to eight. The assignment calls for three articles...that is the limit. Sooooo I had to read all eight articles. Each article had at least 10,000+ words. When I finally decided on which three to select I then had to write a 240-400 word "proposal" paper with all the trimmings. At midnite I finally got it done. I needed to "save" it on a different format and when I did the entire thing got messed up space wise and I had to retype it all over again. By 12:30 I had a finished project and emailed it to my instructor. I just got informed that I got 56.5% of the possible 60% points so that is great. All that work paid off. sigh.

Mid Week Posting

Well I went to the doctor today. I found out I lost 6 pounds which was nice. I also "passed" my sugar blood test so that was good too.

Got my first week of classes done for this Fall Term. The weeks online are called "Seminars" so I officially got "Seminar One" completed. Five more to go.

Got my flu shot this morning also. My arm is hurting big time where they gave it to me. I 've had a nice headache ever since I got the shot as well so I am off to bed......

Saturday Thoughts.....


My cold is kicking back at me today. I woke up the other morning and thought oh no here it comes. Today I feel "under the weather" as that saying goes. (Where DID that saying come from anyway?) I tried to sleep in this morning but it was quite impossible around here with all the noise going on. It is amazing how much noise one dog and a sister and a mother can make lol.

It looks like a beautiful day today. But, I am staying inside because I am just too tired to venture out.

I feel like watching some scary movies today. Not sure why I am just feeling all sort of "Halloweenie" I guess. Not gory movies just some scary one or two.

Right now though I am off to sleep.......hopefully.

First Day of Fall Term.....Online......

Ahh today is the first day of my "Fall Term" at Baker College where I am now taking my last four classes "online" and I can say that it feels strange not getting ready to go to the actual campus this coming Monday. Apparently the "Online Campus" always starts before the "On Campus" does...something I never knew till now. I am taking three classes this term. The terms online are somewhat different than the normal online class schedule. When one is on campus the "term" is ten weeks long. Some of the classes on campus are five weeks but thats mainly computer classes. When taking classes from Baker Online the "term" consist of two sessions. The sessions are 6 weeks long. The first session I am taking: Ta-DAH!  "Philosophy of Ethics" and "Introductory Algebra" then the second session of the term if I am successful at passing the first math class I move on to: "Intermediate Algebra" when that time comes I will be finished with the Ethics class and only working on one class. Sooooooooooo today was the first day. I have logged in, posted an introduction and already did some work. So I am off and running.

Can You Tell What It Will Be?

Just a hobby of mine that I will discuss at a later time. Can you see the progression?  Any idea what it is going to be?

Rainy Days.....

Personally I love it when it rains. I find rainy days to be peaceful. I was out the other day and it was raining so I took a couple of pictures. Nothing special just thought I would share them.

Quick Overview of Sites Listed

Some of them you may be quite well aware of but there might be a few you are not sure about. Here is a quick fact about those:

AMERICORPS: This is a place where you can look at upcoming possible jobs. You serve a certain amount of time and then get $$ for college or for employment. I've just recently been looking at this one.

GAY CHRISTIAN NETWORK: Awesome site. If you are gay or someone you know is gay or you are not sure if you can be gay and christian.......almost any topic you can think of....this is the place to check out. They have forums and lots of support.

LOGO TV: Is a gay tv station where if you like Rupal's Drag Race you can watch it. They also have free movies that can be seen.

PAPERBACKSWAP: Sister company to the other swap. I have used this on many times. The service is great. I have bought books here that if I got them at a local book store would cost 10 times as much. Check it out if you enjoy reading.

SWAP CD: A place where you can set up an account to swap CDs with other people. I have used this one a few times.

TOPIX: I just found this place myself. You can post your thoughts on current events.

"Fall" my favorite season.....

I think ever since I was a little kid that Fall has been my favorite season of the year. I do enjoy the others very much but in the Fall I love all the colors, and the just enough cool air to wear a light jacket, and the smell of hot chocolate in the air. I am always more introspective in the Fall as well...not sure what brings that on. I have some Fall type candles that I enjoy burning. It's always a good time to curl up in a nice cozy chair and read a book by one of my favorite authors as well. Plus usually the awesome movies of the year (those good enough to be nominated for the Oscars) start coming out. 

Welcome to "Blog At Ya Later"

Thanks for dropping by my place here. I have tried blogging before but this time I am going to promote my blog on other places I go to (Facebook, Twitter etc etc) I thought it might be interesting to start over again. My plans here are to just talk about things that I find interesting. Topics, issues, life, being in college...again....the future....relationships....religion.....glbt......all kinds of stuff. I don't expect everyone to agree with me but that's just fine it makes life interesting right? Say hi in the comments and hope to see you back here soon.

Tobey :-)
