The new year.

Been a busy month, ole December. I saw my last post was November 30th, right after my midterm. December was certainly a long month with the holidays.

So, I finished off Psychology 108. Finishing with a 97 and getting my first A, in my first class back into college. It’s a great feeling. I wasn’t particularly challenged by the class, content-wise, and I think my main complications at any time were from time management. I felt I learned a lot, both about Psychology in general, and college as well. Hopefully I can keep up this GPA!

So, next term starts two 8-week classes, Introduction to Creative Writing, and Introduction to Information Technology. I anticipate no problems with the IT class; I’ve spent a lot of my life fiddling around with computers and software. While I am certainly not anything other than amateur, I look forward to an actual college-level refresher to fill in any gaps in my own experiences.

Intro to Creative Writing, however…

It’s my first course of my Major, and according to the syllabus posted, it’s just a broad class on creative writing as a whole, so easy enough. The first two weeks, however, seem to jump right into Poetry. Now, I’m not doggin’ poetry at all, however I have little interest in poetry in any form. There are certain aspects to poetry like form and imagery that I’m going to try hard to master, and anything I learn is going to help me as a whole. I need to look at the entire picture of my education, and not just the little pieces I don’t like.

I’m not going to lie, I’m intimidated by the workload. Oh, I’ll do just fine, I know, but I’m just putting it out there. Wish me luck!

Now that the New Year is here, it’s that time to make resolutions. I’m not going to jump on the “lose weight” bandwagon and declare a year-long campaign into combating excessive poundage,  but I do want to try to get healthier. Healthy body means healthy brain, thusly, a healthy education, right? I also would like to try to publish something, anything, doesn’t matter what. I think if I can get something paid and published, it’ll boost my self-esteem and make me work that much a harder. I’m after the respect, so I can start publishing while still going to school.

So, New Year’s Resolutions: get healthier, get published. Those are reasonable, right?
