Big News and a Year of Something New Update

So, big news everybody!!!  I’m so excited to share with everyone that I have been accepted into the Physical Therapist Assistant program at a local school!

I cannot wait!  Classes start beginning of April and I will be going to school full time for 2 years.  I am lucky that I already have a B.A. and have finished my core classes: English, Psychology, and Sociology so I am able to skip those classes (save money) and take classes only 4 days a week.  The PTA program is an Associate degree and that’s why I would need the core classes.  My schooling will start early April (!!!!), and I am in the evening classes Monday thru Thursday.  Quarters are 12 weeks long with a 1 week break in between quarters.

I will continue to work at JoAnns while in school, but probably knock it down to just a few days a week, I hear PTA school is just like having a job.  This will be much more intensive than my yearlong Massage Therapy program.

I just wanted to share the news with everyone and let you know I will continue to blog, though I may have to learn to plan better.  I will also continue my jewelry making as well as my Year of Something New.

Year of Something New Update:

Speaking of, this month of February was supposed to be my month to read books.  As it turns out, I couldn’t get excited about that.  So instead I started reading one book, The Walking Dead Compendium 1, which has no page numbers but is most definitely about 1000 pages!  My boyfriend bought this for me for Christmas this year, it is a graphic novel/comic and the show is based off this book.  Honestly, I have to say I am seeing very little resemblance between the 2!  For that reason I am reading it slower than usual.  And I find I am not crazily drawn to it like most novels I read, so I can easily read it slowly and think about it and compare it to the show.  I can see how they couldn’t follow it exactly because there just wouldn’t be enough drama to hold interest for a TV show.

I’m also spending this month working on baby projects, so when that month comes, I think it is March, I’ll still be doing baby stuff, but maybe I will be finding stuff from my other months to try too.  Turns out I can’t wait that long to get started on these projects, I have already done so much but I keep finding more stuff I want to make for the babies.

Luckily I like to stay busy!
