school is tiring

I haven't written in forever. I have been so tired, it's not even funny. Last Monday (the 9th) I started school to get my pre-requisites for my hopefully masters degree in Dietetics. My classes have been great, so far, at least. I am meeting more people since I am in school and I am very excited about that. My classes are seeming to be easier than I thought they were going to be and I'm in classes with the 2 professors that decide who gets into the dietetics department and so far they like me. I have also so far made it to every class. However, as soon as I get home I'm in bed. I have no choice. I am tired. I mean I stay awake for the most part, but my body is done being up and about. I have also been hurting pretty badly, but I am toughing my way out through it. So far I have learned a lot and hopefully I will do well enough to get into the program, if not, oh well. My professors have also been really good so far after I talked to all of them personally with if I need to take a break or whatever that is ok. I am very thankful for this. Indiana State is a very different college from Catawba (14000 students vs 2000) and most of my classes have at least 40 people in them, one actually has about 200 people in it. However, most of my professors have already learned my name and realize that I am a little different than most "traditional students"

I also started a new small group at my church and it is awesome! There are about 7 girls and we have a blast. Some of them are married some of them are single. We eat, we talk about God and guys and have a great time. We are doing a book study by Jerry Bridges called Respectable Sins, which I highly recommend. It's all about how "Christians" have these sins that we tolerate because they aren't "as bad" as the big sins like murder and homosexuality and things like that. They are sins like pride and selfishness and gossip and things like that. Sins that we do every day and we do them so often that we don't even realize we are sinning. It is a good book. I really like my small group and hope that I become great friends with the girls.

This weekend was spent preparing and throwing my sister a graduation party because she graduated from Liberty University in December with a BS in Psychology. We had about 20 people over and I cooked most of the food for it. Some of the items included beef brisket, buffalo wings, bar b que, potato salad, muddy buddies, little football shaped chocolates, etc. It was a lot of food, but most of it got eaten thank goodness. Yesterday, my mom sister and I went out to lunch with my aunt and her kids at TGIFridays. After that I went with my aunt and cousins shopping at the mall and some other places. After that I was so exhausted and in so much pain I spent most of the rest of my day in bed. Today I went to school, went to the chiropractor, and found out I got approved for disability. I am making about 1/2 of what I made teaching but considering I had no income for the past 4 months I am so, so, so thankful that I will have income again. I told mom I could make like 200 dollars and it would be worth it. I am making more than that and I don't have many bills anymore besides my health insurance so I am way excited. I was just thinking about declaring bankruptcy because of my medical bills and what not, but I hopefully will not have to now. I am so so excited that I can take some burden off my family financially now.

Anyways, I am exhausted and in pain and have to go to school tomorrow so I think I am going to sign off now. I will try to be a better blogger, but no promises since I'm in school now.

Have a good night guys :)
