Finished!

Tonight, I submitted my last assignment for my introductory library science course. Woohoo!!

While the class was very basic, it did whet my appetite for the "real" classes to follow. After submitting my assignment, I filled out the FAFSA. I realized last week that if I want to take 3 courses this summer then I will have to get some financial aid. I thought I might be able to get by without borrowing, but there is no summer payment plan. Damn being a under-paid, single teacher!

Another disappointment, the Astros' closer Brad Lidge blew a save--giving up a grand slam in the top of the ninth. Damn!

Since then, I have been adding music to my iPod. I bought it Easter weekend and had only put 3 albums on it. Before I go to bed, though, I will have it loaded with tunes. Now, I have to use it often to make it worth the money I spent on it. I know I will use it walking, which I must get in the habit of doing again. Also, I need to purchase some home speakers for it, then I will feel like I spent money wisely, a feeling that I seldom have.

It's 11:30 now, so I better get to bed. I stayed up late the past two nights and swore I wouldn't do the same tonight. I think my brain and body are ready for summer vacation. I just want to stay up late every night and watch tv and read. Alas, I have another month of work, so it's off to bed I go.

Yeah for getting your last assignment in. As for the iPod speakers, I think you can just plug into your computer's speakers and use those.
