Aloha, My Dear Fellow Creators!
I am sitting here at the computer, just having finished eating a nice bowl of Apple Jacks with skimmed milk. A couple of months ago, I would have eschewed eating this stuff for something more healthier, preferably vegetarian. However, funds are tight and so we eat what is available and be very grateful for what we have. I do miss having fresh veggies in the house, but here in Hawaii it is so expensive. Someday, I will get back to my vegetarian diet. Until then, I am thankful and grateful for having any kind of nutrition.
I am working on a research paper for my English class. My topic is on stress and the college student. I have to write an 8-10 page paper, plus cull that information down to a 5-10 minute presentation. Both of these items will constitute about 75% of my grade for this course. My next step is to prepare research cards, choosing various resources to support my thesis statement. Once I have my research cards chosen (minimum 25), I need to create an outline, then submit both items to my instructor...after the Thanksgiving holidays. Then the real fun begins...
I am also working in partnership with a classmate of mine on a project for our Business Math class. We are learning about investments, stocks, bonds, etc. We had to pick 5 companies to "buy" stock from, and watch the market for the next 5 weeks. At the end of the 5 weeks, we have to sell our stock, then prepare a report on how our choices did in the stock market. Stock market, meaning the one in New York (i.e., NYSE, NASDAQ, whatevers...) This is going to be a big learning experience for me because other than 401(k) related stuff, I don't mess with the stock market at all. Nor was I ever interested in it. But now, I have to deal with it as a class assignment. Who knows? Maybe I can get something positive out of this :)
So my schooltime is absolutely GROOVY! I am busy, productive, learning new things every day. I am looking forward to the change in my major from Criminal Justice to Business Administration with an Emphasis on Software Technology. Bottom line: it's all GOOD! Aloha <3 <3 <3
