You know your lame when....

Right now school is the most exciting part of my life so I thought I'd share some school stuff with you. School started last week. This semester I am taking Advanced Formatting, Business Law, and Managerial Accounting.

Managerial Accounting is online. The first week there was no review. I think I can pull off an A in this class. I am an accounting major so I better be able to.

Business Law is going to be the toughest one for me. I am supposed to have that class tonight but it snowed last night and it is still snowing. I'm praying for a snow day. I had to read 2 chapters for tonight. It was the most boring shit I've ever read. For real. I'd really like to get an A just to maintain my 4.0 but it seems rough. The only grades are tests.

Advanced Formatting is a joke. There are two girls that just got out of high school, two girls around my age, and the other 10 or so are all over 50. 30% of the grade is based on timed writings. 56 words per minute with 6 or fewer errors will get me an A+. I have to have 3 good ones all semester. So last night, we had two chances to get a good one. The first one I did, I took my time. I typed 66 wpm with zero errors. Since I already knew I had a good one, on the second one, I went balls to the wall. I was typing like a freaking maniac, dust was flying out of the keyboard, and people were looking at me like I was a mad woman. Please take a moment to visualize. I typed 77 wpm with 1 error. Yeah, I'm a badass like that.

The rest of the class is basically about formatting business letters and whatnot. If you have one error on the homework its a 75%, two errors 50%, 3 errors is 25 %, and 4 or more and you are fu screwed. I got 100% on both of the assignments I turned in last week.

The online "blackboard" for my school was down for 3 days. But luckily, I had printed a bunch of stuff off so I didn't get behind.

After this semester, I will officially be a college sophomore. And just think, it only took me 12 years!

Happy Thursday!

Better late than never.
And as for Business law, ugh, I feel your pain. That is some dull reading. Good luck with it, but it sounds like you've got the rest of your classes covered :)

Happy Thursday, too! I type like a maniac, too. It's drives me up the wall when OccDoc hunts and pecks.

Oh man. I couldn't go back to college again if they paid ME. Nope. No way. It took me 5.5 years to graduate. I had way too much fun! I think this is where my love for all things alcohol happened...

I miss school. I want to go back when I get the money situated. I have my under grad degree and I must say I hated accounting. More power to you. If I ever have to take that again I am messaging you. lol.
