Catching up

Wow it has been a while since I have posted on this blog. Guess I better do some explaining and catching up.

It is Spring term WOOHOO day two and I'm on task HAHA! Last term was a struggle for me to keep up. I just was not feeling it like I normally do. I enjoyed both my classes so that was not it. I took a wilderness Lit class. It was the test class while the instructor went through the process of getting it accepted as an actual Literature class. He is very excited that he was able to get the class approved so it can now be taught at any PCC campus.

I had never taken a lit class before only writing classes. WOW I love to read but having to read specific books that are not normally in the genre you read was tough to say the least. A couple of the books were a real struggle to get all the way through. Even with the struggle of reading the teacher was so enthusiastic it still made class fun. We went on a couple nature hikes and part of our grade was based on a field report where we went out in to the wilderness and wrote about what we did. A few times we got up in the middle of class to go outside and look at the sky or birds. Never had a teacher do that before :-).

This term I'm taking a full load.  Psy 101, Introduction to Web Design, and History 102.  The history teacher is a hoot! She makes you laugh all the time and make history interesting!  I'm excited about the Web design class. I get to blend my artsy side with my love of computers and be creative. It's win win. I'm also excited I get to put those skills I learn toward my new adventure. :-)

Part of why I have been so inactive on this blog is I have started a Facebook page and a blog that is associated with the Facebook page. It's about Dave and my adventures. I call it Adventures of a 4 Wheeling Mom.  I have done a few interviews on it with more out with people. Not only do I want to share our adventures, but I want to also keep discussions about safety and trail ethics going on. If you haven't seen them check them out.
