Upgraded to WordPress 3.0. Let me know if you see any screw-ups with either my site or your feedreader.
Got my diploma in the mail today. So it’s official – I’m a college graduate.
The diploma paper kind of makes me laugh. It’s like tissue paper that’s been made into cardstock, with the texture of a rough plastic panel.
I start my classes for my online Masters of Science in Counseling degree on July 12th. I ordered my books yesterday, they shipped already, and they’ll be here Saturday. I’m not quite nervous…just a little anxious. I’m only allowed to take one class this term, though (it’s a “sink or swim” course designed to help students make sure they *really* want to do this program), so that’s good.
I also internet-stalked my professor, and found out that she’s a really well-respected member of the counseling community overall, and exceedingly good at her job (as the head of a major counseling center in the Minneapolis area), so that makes me feel a lot better about this whole thing.
When I started out looking at grad schools, and figured out that the only way I was going to get a graduate degree any time soon was to take online classes, I was kind of disappointed. But I managed to do some research, and with these new developments, I’m really looking forward to it.
IT’S FREAKIN’ HOT OUTSIDE.
I’m at Cluck-n-Neigh right now, with JB, staying in the “guest cabin” so that we can help out for a week while one half of the farm’s usual staff is out of town. I just went out to put frozen water bottles in the water containers, and to turn on the misters for the animals, and in the 15 minutes I was down there, I think I sweated (?) all of the fluid I’d already drunk earlier today. I’ve had probably 32 oz so far, and I haven’t had to pee at all.
This weather isn’t something to fuck with, y’all.
JB is obviously insane, so he’s down on the dock fishing. I think I’ll stay in the air conditioning, looking out the window every so often to make sure my husband hasn’t keeled over.
Have you ever heard a house settling all day long? That’s how hot it is outside – the air conditioning being on is causing this cabin’s roof to adjust constantly as the temperature keeps rising and the sun beats down on the roof.
I’m off to make myself useful by sweeping up all of the dead ladybugs in here.
