A Life Update
Surprise: this post is not about Animorphs. At least it’s not directly about Animorphs. I want to catch you guys up on some things going on in my life.
Summer Semester starts next week. I am taking Biology and Microsoft Applications. I wanted to take Biology in the Summer so that I could focus on just it without having to divide my attention between it and four other classes. As much as I love Math, Science is not my best subject. Weird, I know. I found out I have to have at least 7 credit hours in the Summer to receive Financial Aid, so I looked for a class I could take that would not take away from Biology. I settled with Microsoft Applications, which I’ll be taking on Tuesday evenings. In that class, I’ll be learning how to use Microsoft Office, which I already have experience in, so I’ll mainly be just going through the motions in that class and can spend my study time on Biology. Biology is on Monday and Wednesday mornings, so I only have school Monday through Wednesday this Summer. I can still get a little bit of a break.
I know I tweeted about this, but for those that don’t follow me on Twitter, I made all A’s in Spring Semester.
At the end of the semester I was inducted into the Honors Society. There was a ceremony and an award. It was really nice. Two ladies from my church went to see me walk across the stage so I’d have someone there. It was a great night. I bought some frames to hang the certificates I have won in school on the wall. I only have two certificates so far: the Honors Society and the President’s List for Fall, but but I’ll frame more when/if I get them.
Huckleberry is not doing well. As I wrote in another post, he has a bladder stone resting on his bladder that is causing him a lot of pain. We changed his diet last month and put him on antibiotics to see if the stone would shrink enough to pass, but it didn’t shrink at all. Huck has to have surgery. The surgery is going to put me back a grand. I hate asking people for help, but one of my friends suggested starting a fundraiser. After several other people expressed interest in helping, I went ahead and did it. So far I’ve raised $200 of the surgery cost, which I’m grateful for because I’m a broke college student. I have some really great friends.
I’ve been reading a lot of Animorphs as you can no doubt tell if you’ve looked at the front page of my blog in the last week. The series is so good. I can’t stop.
I heard there was an active Animorphs community on Tumblr, so I finally started one of those. I’d love to follow/friend any of you guys on Tumblr, so feel free to add me if you have one. My username is Dragonzord, just like on Twitter. Go go Power Rangers. I’ll be a 1990s kid forever.
I need to look into getting a family physician. I hate going to the doctor, so I only really go when I’m sick, and because I don’t go when I’m healthy, I don’t have my own physician. I end up hitting up Urgent Care facilities. I need some vaccines before I transfer to my second college next year, so I want to start getting those knocked out. I hate needles. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
So, how are you guys doing?
