One month till school starts

It’s Easter Sunday.  So, Happy Easter for those who celebrate it.   I choose not to.


Bed at 10:30pm up at 6am to feed the dogs and make sure they go out to take care of morning business.  I don’t think I could have slept longer though, I was actually awake before 6am but got up to be up at 6.  Nap(s) will occur today.  I love a good nap, my nap yesterday was full of bad dreams and not very restful, here is hoping for a good nap today.


I stepped on the scale for the first time in quite a while yesterday evening after lunch but before dinner, I was fully expecting bad news.  Well, I was shocked and happily surprised with the scales response of 206.8.  Yeah, buddy, let’s hear it for my new metabolism.  I thought for sure I was way over 210, but nope I holding on to the 205 area.  Color me happy.


According to Alexa, today it is supposed to get up to 80 degrees.  Wow.  First 80 of the Spring season.  Right now it’s mid-fifty something, but the heat is supposed to crank up.


I have determined something, Khajitt level faster than Orcs in Skyrim.  My Orc is only level 20 now, whereas by this point with my Khajitt, he would have been level 30 easily.  But I have discovered a flaw in my Orc, I haven’t been working on his archery skill, I think it’s 17 now (starts at 15, he read 2 skill books, the scale is to 100).  So what?  You ask.  Well, there are some quests that require archery or spell casting, neither of which my orc does.  Gonna have to change up the plan and start firing the bow and get that skill up.  Cuz I am NOT going to be a spell caster. —–  Oh yeah, I also got the ability to not hurt my followers anymore, whish has always been a problem of mine.  Whack, dead follower, reload.  Now, the hits just don’t land.  Yeah, buddy.  I like it.


I am definitely going to see Chris (my PA) tomorrow if he has any openings in his schedule.  My knee is getting worse and worse.  Residual pain is a definite 3, bend pain is a 6 and pressure pain is an 8.  I am ok with pain, but I want to know if I did something bad to it (will never know what I did).  So, me and my sore knee will head down the road a couple blocks and visit with Chris to see what he has to say.  And if he has any suggestion on what to do about it.  It’s more annoying more than anything unless I bend it or put pressure on the bend, then it’s more than just annoying.


ALEKS still won’t let me retake my assessment.  Definitely going to have to call the college and get this fixed.  Annoying that they list inactive, expired test results, but do not let me take the test again a year and half later.  I can’t be the only one experiencing this issue; there has to be others who didn’t take math for a year and a half after enrolling.  So, there has to be some mechanism in place to reset ALEKS.

School starts in exactly one month. 5/21 is the start date.  Got to get into that math class.  Got to have both English and/or Philosophy not cancelled for lack of sign ups.  Lots of anxiety thrown around.  But there is nothing I can do about anything until tomorrow, so today I am just going to play Skyrim and try not to be anxious about school.  I think I can do that.
