A Very Big Step

Today I accepted and electronically signed a promissory note for a graduate school loan. I have to say that I'm a little scared, but sometimes you just have to jump. I also updated my start date to the fall semester since I couldn't start this summer as planned. I was going to put it on hold with my schedule being what it is next year, but I decided that I'm never going to not be busy and I just need to go ahead with it. I don't know if I'm crazy, but I guess I'll find out. I am a little excited though. I always loved being in school (mostly). I loved learning things that I was interested in and doing research - I've always been nosy and never do anything without checking things from every angle.
Today was pretty uneventful other than going through the loan process - including online counseling. I went to band at 3:30 and then came home and took a nap. I got up around 6:30 and then ran to Sonic to pick up dinner. (Burger and tots) I watched the new season episodes of Monk and Psych and now it's getting close to bed time. I was looking at my site meter stats a little while ago and for some reason a lot of people have been doing searches on Prison Pete and ending up here. It's not that strange given that it was my recommendation that made him a blog of note several years ago, I'm just wondering why all the searches happened today. I'm not sure how many of my regular readers are familiar with his blog, but he hasn't been posting much lately though he did have a spurt of posts earlier this spring. I feel bad that I haven't written him. I've been in actual contact with him through letters from time to time. It's probably been a year since I've written since it seems the only time I have is in the summer. I guess I should write again soon before school starts again.
It's going to start sooner that I want but I guess there's nothing I can do about it. The yearbooks will be shipped sometime next week so I've got to get ready for that and then we'll be handing them out at registration as well as taking orders for next year. I've also got to get ready for the yearbook workshop I'm teaching in August. Well, I guess that's all the update for now. Going to read some more and then head to bed soon.

Good. I think it is the right thing. I hope all what you have to do, what is on your agenda, will not overwhelm you. But I guess you know yourself well enough, your power and abilities. If you trust yourself with this then there is no question, you will do your best. Good.

I love going to school. I have always wanted to go back and finish getting my bachelors. I wouldn't have the same major anymore, considering I was a biology major. I guess I could always change it to business.

Something I also want to pursue is part time culinary school. Just to learn the basics. If I still move later this fall to Cinci, I will get the chance next year.
