As far as the "how many classes should I take" issue, I solved it. We'll see how well the solution works out... Anyway, I decided I'd take the two classes that I have to take to graduate "on time" for school, and I'd take the American Sign Language class for fun, like a hobby, because I really wanted to take it. My resolve did fade a little when I got a D on a long quiz, but with my sister's assurance that I could work up to a final grade of a C or better, I am sticking it out. Even though I am currently relatively tired of watching and watching and watching a bunch of vocabulary words, most of which I already know. I play a guessing game and see if I guess the same sign that he then demonstrates. (See, my reseptive skills are pretty good. My grammar knowledge? That could improve. Especially when it comes to names of grammar rules - not the sort of detail I tend to pay attention to, since I personnally don't care what it's called as long as I understand it.)

So that is somewhat solved. And I am spending hours staring at my computer and working on my classes. Hmmm. Now I'm getting nervous again. Well, that isn't going to help. I've now committed to taking these classes.

The weather was nice today, the sun actually shone. The sky boasted lots of blue, and the weather was pretty warm (as in, 40s F).

I am enjoying my computer. I designed art/craft activities for my kids for this week.

  1. Abigail, I'm glad you resolved the class issue, and I think your solution is good. You get the credits you need, and you get to have fun.

    I think it's natural to still have some doubts about the decision, but at least it's made now and you don't have that hurdle. I like how you are dealing with a potentially boring time by playing the guessing game. When I was in school, if I was bored with a subject, I would start focusing totally on it, tryinig to learn as much as possible, and I found that my interest grew. Sometimes we do what we have to do to get through boring parts, right?

    I'm glad you're enjoying your computer, too, and finding ways to be creative. You seem like a very creative person, and I bet making arts and crafts is fun!
