Second year in college begins

Hi guys. I really can’t get into the last few days. I really want to but it’s kind of personal to me, and this isn’t a very personal journal. But I’m doing ok.. for the most part my family’s doing ok and things seem a little better. I really do plan to post some pictures soon, but I just haven’t been in the mood to record the last few days. But tomorrow (technically later today), starts a new part of my life as I begin my sophomore year at DeVry. It’s really hard to sink in. It’s going by so fast. Last semester, as you probably know from reading this, was a lot of work for me, more then I’m usually used to doing, but I did great. I got through the hard times, and kept at it. I pulled off great grades and for the first time in awhile I was really happy with myself. I have a lot of hard classes, one less then last tri so that will help, but as a normal person should be, I’m a little nervous. I’m going to be in lab probably twice as much as last semester, and I’ll be taking statistics. I’m nervous about that because I’ve never really been great at math. I’m also taking accounting. I’m really hoping I actually learn the material well. I want to be good at this, but if I’m going to be stressed out with it the entire semester I’ll break down.

Actually I’m fine, I just know that tomorrow starts school again. I’ll be back to my long nights, and little sleep and less time with friends. But I’ll do it. I know I can do it. I’m going to be successful this semester just like the last one. Financially too, I’ll be ok. I have a big job offer that could change my life and start a career. All is great, as long as I can stay focused. For the most part, it’s been a nice three weeks off, besides the headaches of family drama here and there, I’ve really been able to relax and I do feel refreshed. So in that aspect I’m almost excited to be going back tomorrow. I have just one class tomorrow w/lab, but I’ll probably get out early. It’s my Visual Basic class. This will probably be my toughest class.

Anyway, this journal keeps me sane.. gives me some inspiration to do well, and I’ll record every step of the way just like in the spring. There are good things to look forward to I suppose.. This week on Wed is my 20th birthday. Nothing big is planned, but hopefully it’ll be a nice day. It was great seeing all of my friends over my break, you know who you are, and I hope to continue hanging out with you as much as possible while I’m in school. Anyway, I’m out, and if anybody does actually read this journal still, thanks, means a lot 🙂
