Short Update

Hi all!

Things continue to be so busy for me that sometimes I’m not sure how I can handle it. It is very unlike me to be unorganized or forget things but stress has gotten to me lately . . . I did an assignment for my finance class but didn’t print it out ( I did it way ahead of time and didn’t see a need to print it yet); when I got to class yesterday I realized I still hadn’t printed it. I ran to go do that really fast but there were too many people ahead of me at the printer and it took too long. I made it back to class but not before he collected the assignment so I couldn’t turn it in AND I was late so I lost my attendance points for the day. I was so sad. It would be one thing if I was just an irresponsible student and did this a lot but I’m not . . .

I had a neuropsychology test yesterday- I did really well. I think I got a 98% but I won’t know for sure until Tuesday. For the most part, I’m actually not enjoying my classes this semester, but I do enjoy my major and they’re required for it, so I’m plowing through. I do LOVE my finance class though.

I received an acceptance letter to the BYU Jerusalem Center this week for Winter 2009. However, it is so expensive to go that it is actually more stressful than it is exciting. I really have to figure out a way to get the money because I have to go- I can’t imagine missing this experience. So I’m applying for every scholarship I can.

It’s getting to the point where I really have to figure out which grad schools and programs I want to apply too. I keep thinking that I’m just gonna skip guide dog training and go for a masters as a TVI with a dual program in O&M. My future family is super important to me and the lifestyle of a GDB licensed instructor is not conducive to the family life I want to have, so I keep thinking that TVI is the better choice. But then I hear or read about someone working their guide dog and I long for that opportunity too. The only thing I know to do is to apply to the SFSU program as well as several TVI programs. Then at least I’ll know I did my best to try and do it and if it doesn’t work out, I really do want to be a TVI. It’s hard decision!

I keep looking for good deals to fly to PDX for the guide dog family reunion. That would be too much fun. Maybe I’ll get to see some of you then.
