We’re half-way through August already. This year is truly flying by.
Yesterday was my mom’s birthday! Happy Birthday, Mommy! again..
Registration for the Fall semester began today. Now, in all honesty, I planned on going to pay my fees so I could get my book voucher to get my books and school supplies but there were entirely too many people on campus today doing the same thing. Plus, there were registration and people for Financial aid in one line. I found it rather ridiculous for those who have completed the financial aid process to have to stand in line with others who have yet to complete their financial aid. But, after checking my school email, which I rarely do, I discovered that my fees had already been paid when I accepted my award package. Now that is a W – I – N! I cannot be a happier Southern Univeristy student on this day – the day I realized that fees can be paid online and billing statements are emailed to your school email. I guess I need to start checking my school email more often..
I no longer loathe returning back to school for the Fall semester. Perhaps this is because my manager is allowing me to work less than 40 hours and still be considered full time. In the past, this has been a problem, but I’m glad she’s a bit more lenient. And perhaps I’m finally a bit more optimistic about returning because I only have about two more semesters to complete before I’m able to graduate. It’s been a long journey and I’m almost to the end of it and I won’t stop until I’m done.
My daughter starts school on Wednesday. At the last minute, she decided that she wanted to attend the same school as my niece. She went for testing last Friday and we both got a chance to meet her teacher. After testing, her teacher also recommended that she be tested for the gifted/talented program. Unfortunately, the school doesn’t have a gifted/talented program, which made me subtract major cool points, but I’m looking into getting her tested regardless.
Lately, I’ve been finding major treasures on my thrifting adventures. I’ve been hearing so much about the book “Wench” and while I was in the consignment shop, I spotted it along with a few other books, for $2.99! I was also able to locate some linen pants for my son and other shorts from the Gap in the consignment shop. He wore them to church and he was so handsome, might I add. I found a bonnet at Dollar Tree for my daughter to wear with a summer dress that I bought for her a while back.
Aren’t they the cutest?
