It is one week to the day I begin my first weekend of classes. I’m nervous since I’ve never done a distance-learning class before. And by distance I mean distance. 121 miles, one way, to be exact; every other weekend, over-night. I’m going to have to manage these classes along with everything else, like my job, my boyfriend, my pets… I’ve done alot of preparation, but I don’t feel prepared enough. I have a part-time job, a car, a computer and a few other necessities, but I know there will still be many surprises in store for me, you know…expenses, unexpected events, car trouble, etc. As stressed out as I am, it’s time for me to go with the flow and not worry too much, but try to enjoy the beginning of this new chapter in my life.
