summer's begun... go
starting out my summer class today, so I will find out this morning what sort of variety of students I'll get to see for the next two months, perhaps a single mom, military guy or gal, student who just went through some trauma in life and is getting back to college, kid fresh out of high school getting an early start on college, other students who still live at home and parents are forcing them to take a class?? who knows..
I will try to give a great little intro about the class and the dedication needed to do every assignment and attend every class etc etc etc.. I must really lay it on about attendance and handing things in on time though, it's only a two month class after all and twice a week with each class equalling a week's worth of work etc etc blah blah.
had a very busy weekend, dinner with good friend S on Friday night, and then Saturday I cleaned up my backyard, all the brush and branches that coninuously fall from the badly chosen Silver Maple trees planted many years ago. took a truckful of debris to the city dump and then worked the rest of the weekend sat pm and Sun am.
Have you ever been in a hurry to get somewhere while driving and at a stoplight, and when it turns green, you say to yourself "thank you, left turn green light, for letting me GO!" ha. there are certain intersections where the left turn signal will turn green after the forward traffic already has a green if there is no oncoming traffic, and others that make you wait till the intersecting lanes go through the whole process of left turn first, then direct, then finally you again turning left..
Have you ever been using the restroom privately and while standing there just raised both hands in the air and have a good stretch. It's a good time to stretch if you're able to stand quite still enough and not make a mess of course.
I hear more and more about a double dip economy but forever the optimist, I'm buying some stock this morning, 50 shares of TCAP, on a whim really - it has an interest of 8% and someone in the stock club mentioned it, plus it's in my price range. I like learning slowly win or lose. I have to keep my sights very long term, what with my 3000 shares of genworth currently way down. BOOOO!! although I'm still way up considering I bought them march of 2009.
I'm off to my closet to put together something for class, school all morning reworking the syllabus and then off to the water park by 3 to work the rest of the evening, fun summer. :)
