I made it…

Through the first week of school. I am more terrified now than I was before. I am more excited now than I was before. Yesterday I went and bought a new computer that I can’t really afford, but know will be worth it in the end.

I also got a program that is included in the course, that I am totally stoked about. It will change everything. I can’t wait to start learning how to use it.

Be prepared for blog changes :) I am sure that is bound to happen, you will be my guinea pigs. I promise.

Hence the new computer, my old one had way too small of well, everything gigabite. And the hinge is busted. I now have Windows 8, because I needed one more thing to do…other than the 3-6 hours of homework predicted for each freaking class.

I have five classes.

I pray that they are not all that much homework or I am screwed…there are not that many hours in the bloody day.

Graphic Design

Also here is hoping that I have even a wee thread of confidence with this new computer by Monday. Windows 8 is insane and I now have a touch screen to play with. Sweet right? I made the mistake of buying a computer without a number pad though, that is the only thing I am not liking about it so far.

That and I just won’t be able to buy groceries for a few weeks, no biggie. Eating is totally overrated anyway.

I have some tomatoes in the garden as well as lots of kale, we’re good.

So the terrifying things about school…

The first day, I seriously felt like I was in kindergarten again. You know that feeling where you don’t know anyone, and you just hope maybe one or two people will at least  talk to you. Ya. Like that.

I know I am a mouthpiece on here, and if you know me in real life you would pretty much say I am anything but shy, but the truth of it is I am a loner, I have always been that way. I just suck in group situations. I hate talking to a group, especially when I don’t know anyone, it is a hurdle I have always struggled to overcome, so my insecurity is rampant.

But I did it this week. I sucked at it, but I did it. The next thing that will be interesting is this…

Database Management

All I could think the whole time I was sitting in the class on Wednesday was what the hell did I get myself into here? Who am I trying to kid that I can pull this shit off…I am too old to think this hard.

I know nothing at all about database anything. I did my homework today. For three hours. I still have no idea whether I did it right or not, I will read it again tomorrow and make sure it makes just any sense at all. Bloody hell.

The teacher said on Wednesday that there are no wrong answers, I really hope that is true.

We have to do a feedback form as well, I said I think I understood about 90%. I hope I really do, second guessing myself all the time is not going to be a good thing with that much homework.

I will let you know how that works out for me.

I now have three days off, well sort of. I have a million things to do tomorrow and maybe on the weekend if Bruce doesn’t have homework we can go wood hunting. I am having withdrawals. I need some logging road time.

Oh and apparently it is my three year anniversary as The Redneck Princess today! Thanks for the notification WordPress, and thank you to all of you for reading my nonsense once and a while, I really appreciate it :)

Happy Friday everyone!! Have a great weekend.

  2. You are going to do just fine! I’ve read many research articles that said those going back to school after a being out awhile do much better than others so science is on your side (smile)! I went back after 10 years the first time – it was so much easier in some ways but still scary! You will RAWK!
