One Week Down!

from Jane's Instagram page
Oh my goodness! I swear I have not fallen off the face of the earth again. I’m around; life has just been rather chaotic these past few months. Dealt with a basement flooding, which let me tell you it’s not fun walking out of your basement bedroom stepping down onto the carpet and having water rise up around your feet. After that there was a dryer issue – which fortunately appliance insurance covered. Beyond there have just been a few family emergencies and me enrolling for GED classes.

I am excited to say that today has completed week one of attending. It’s really nice being in the class. It’s been so long since I have been in school – let alone, actually applied myself. So a lot of what I am looking at is information that was either not covered before I left school, or has just been a long time since I looked at it. My first subject to study for is Social Studies. The instructor for the class provides a pop quiz everyday though. On one side it’s math and on the other grammar. Okay… clearly one side of this daily pop quiz I adore. Not to say I pass every single bit of it, but grammar and writing are (no surprise) something I’m rather passionate about. However on the other side of the pop quiz… well, let’s just say talk about new information.

See I dropped out of school before things like Algebra and Geometry were gone over. Fortunately at class there are a couple guys who’ve helped me out a lot! Slowly, even just after a week I think some of this is actually clicking into my brain and making more sense. Now I still firmly believe math is a pretty evil subject, but none the less I embrace learning it as best as I can. LOL!

No matter I have awhile before I will be studying for the GED Math test. Social Studies is indeed my first subject to study for and I think I’ll move onto Science afterwards. Another evil topic, but I’m going to take this one topic at a time. I just pray I am able to accomplish my GED by the end of the year, because come 2014 they are changing the GED program and I would have to start all over if I’m not done.

Well aside from feeling like a zombie, I do believe this week has overall gone okay. I’m just such a night owl by nature and flipping up to waking at 7-7:30am four days a week is a big change for someone like me.

Alright folks, that’s it for me today. I hate to end this abruptly, but there is a lot to get done today. Hopefully I shall be back tomorrow with more information – like the changes on the blog. LOL!

--XOXO, Jane
