I hope you enjoy the picture of where I've spent over 10 hours a day for the last 16 weeks. We all crammed in those seats and had 50 minutes of class with a 10 minute break to wait in line for the restroom and water. Yes, there were 8 of these 50 minute blocks a day! The freshman and junior classrooms look identical and I'll post pics of the senior classroom when I get there.
This is the left half of the classroom. I sit in the middle! (Right in front of the chair that is turned).
This picture is from the far right side of the room at 5 am. Nobody else was there except for a few freaks like me to study before the test. My seat is far to the other side. There are screens that come down from the ceiling in the front of the classroom where presentations are put on. Fun. Death by powerpoint!!
I'll try to post more pictures of my school soon. I'm going to go enjoy my week off!!

Then we came back to the house for cake. I got him his favorite: ice cream cake in February (okay, it was still January, but you get the point!) The knife actually broke when he was cutting the cake!

0400: Wake up and study
0500: Run with Harley in the neighborhood
0620: Leave for school
0640: Get to school and study
0730 or 0800(depending on test day/scheduling/etc): Start class
1900: Head home after 2 hours of studying at school
2100: Bed!! (After 2 more hours of studying)
I had my first test on Thursday. You have to make atleast a 75 or higher to pass the test. I made an 80. I'm still figuring out what study style works for me. I'm finding that I should review every topic the same night (like they mentioned...). This weekend is "Catch Up Weekend".
Luckily, Rob works evenings so it doesn't seem like I'm ignoring him. Saturdays are Family and Fun days.
I'll just say that the blogs may be sparse from now on until the end of the year. I'll keep things up to date though.

We have been taking the dogs to parks around here that have fun trails. The dogs go crazy with all the new smells. Rob and I are having fun adjusting to the new allergens here (Claritin to the rescue!).
Rob begins work at Coca Cola tomorrow night. He'll be working from 6pm-2am most days. This works out for the dogs because somebody will always be here (with the exception of an hour or two in the evening). I'll probably be leaving the house around 6am and getting home around 6 or 7 at night. I have to report to check in this coming Friday (Dec 5th). I'm not sure about the exact start date of class, but I'm assuming after the new year.
I promise to try and put posts on here regularly.
