School update---It's almost midterms!

So far this semester, school is actually going pretty well. I only have one semester left at Delgado (thank God). In Calculus II, I have an 85 B average so far (85's on both tests); in Chemistry I lecture, a 90.5 A; in Chemistry I lab, a 91.7 A; in English Composition II a 95 A, but the papers we turned in haven't been graded yet and mine was turned in a day late for a letter grade lower; and in Nazism and the Holocaust, I really don't know because we haven't had a test yet. I wonder if we are having a midterm in that class or what. I still have to read both books for my book reports, but it shouldn't take too long I don't think.

So far so good. I am debating on whether to take a class or two during the summer or not. I mean, I only have four classes left to take and three of them are electives (social science, art and literature). I wish Calculus III was taught during the summer, but it's not. Next week on Monday is the day to register for Fall 2014 classes and I can't wait!

My ultimate goal for the semester is straight A's--I have to figure out some way to reward myself if I do reach that goal. A vacation maybe? I have a week at the beginning of June that I will need to take. Speaking of my job, I applied to Whole Foods on Broad St. (the new one) and also for an internship during the summer with a company called Textron. I really want the Textron one because the pay should be excellent and it will build up my resume' for when I get out of school. Either job would be nice though!

It's late now an I should be getting to bed. We have a truck in the morning. :(

Two months later (almost)

I can't believe I forgot about this blog. So much has happened since I last wrote...

Today was Mardi Gras and for the first time since I moved back home, I ended up staying home and catching up on some much-needed rest. The weather was actually really bad today anyway.

Two days ago, I adopted the most adorable pup in the world. He is half Pomeranian and half chihuahua and around two years old. He's a reddish-brown color with a whitish tail and white on his chest. He looks just like a fox in my opinion, so my best friend came up with the name Todd from "The Fox and the Hound." He hates looking at himself in the mirrow (he growls at himself lol), is very picky about his treats (he likes the cheapest ones, apparently) and he the best cuddle bug ever. He follows me everywhere except the bathroom -- He will only stand far away and look at me while I am in there. Ha! I have to take him to the vet soon to get his shots because I don't really know if he's had them or not. I want to get him microchipped and fixed too because he keeps marking. He doesn't do it at my house, but he does in strange houses and everywhere when I walk him.

What else? I am officially a member of Phi Theta Kappa, the official honor society of community colleges. :) I almost dropped my English class last night, but after discussing it with my sister, I've decided to just stick it out. It's a lot of work considering the rest of my schedule, but I don't want it to affect my financial aid for next semester. Speaking of, I need to start applying for scholarships for next year. Ahhh! lol. I have so much to do and so little time!

Oh, well.  I have work tomorrow and it's well past midnight so I should get some rest. Til next time!

My little Todd. :)
