Well, this weekend I graduated from Catawba College with my Bachelor's in Business Administration! It was a lovely ceremony, and my husband and children came, along with my parents, my paternal Grandmother and my Aunt Vickie. We went out for dinner afterward at La Cava, which was fantastic. And then I was gifted with things, the height of which is a three day, two night trip to Asheville, with Biltmore tours and lunch at the Biltmore, for my husband and I, no children allowed!

Now, I am in the process of applying for the fall semester at University of North Carolina - Charlotte for their Master's in Accountancy program, which should take me 1-2 years to complete, depending how many classes I can take at once. I will also still be working at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College in the Tutoring Center, and as a part-time instructor this fall, teaching accounting.

Now, all I have to do is study for the GMAT, which is why I am posting to lj instead...

I had THE CRUD last week. THE CRUD consisted of stuffed sinuses, green junk in the nose and lungs, and a nice, hacking cough. It was bad. I was sorry to miss Chansons de Sacred Stone, the baronial business meeting and the canton business meeting, but you didn't want me there. Really. I missed a class Thursday and a meeting with the dean, with whom I had left a VM that I was sick and needed to cancel. She replied back saying she was scared to call me, as she was afraid she would catch it over the phone I sounded so bad.

So I basically lost a week there. I laid on the couch and played WoW.

Today was my first day back at RCCC. I had to help a student connect to blackboard and his email this morning - it took us an hour and change. Why this student has not yet had the mandatory computer class I do not know. You are supposed to have to take it the first or second semester you are there. I'm wondering if they are still testing you on this when you take your entrance tests. They were...

My boss wants me to crawl around and plug in some new calculators we got. She's less flexible than me, so I'm the plug / cord monkey.

Tonight I am in my Visual Basic class. I have had the Java class, and the eCommerce class, so this is just the same. Just different syntax. But, since I am taking this course out of order (I should have taken this one first), he is going much slower than I need. So I have some down time...

Which means I can update LJ!

Today I am not even tutoring, apparently. Some lady came in and told me to research something for her while she goes to class. She'll be back in a few hours. What the fuck? I tutoring in accounting and computers. I do not do your research for you. Welcome to college.

It's been a busy week. I have a psych test tomorrow, on three chapters - intelligence, social psychology, and psych disorders (depression, schizophrenia, OCD, etc.). I was also drawn into going to a student government meeting the other day (free food and I was broke) and now I am running for Secretary/Treasurer for the 2006-2007 school year.

It's kind of a weird student government, because it covers both North and South Campus of a community college. Each campus should really have its own government, but not enough people are interested. And the SGA budget for the year is like $100,000. We don't have any sports teams but we are picking a mascot. And we have such a wide variety of age groups attending - since Pillowtex went out of business, all the people who worked in the factories are going back to school on someone else's nickel. I think we might actually have more people over 30 as students than the just-out-of-high-school crowd. But all the stuff the SGA does is geared towards the teenyboppers. Like hula hoop contests.

The SGA for the last big event this years, is spending $5000 to have some comedians come in. It just seems like a lot. I know people enjoy it. My suggestion, for next year, at one of the events hire masseuses (masseuseaux?) to come in and give free (to the students) shoulder rubs.

I don't know, I guess I am turning into an old fuddy-duddy...

In other news, the school has a Relay for Life team and I am on it. I will soon be setting up a webpage through the official website, so if you'd like, you may donate to our cause over the internet once I get the page set up. For those who don't know, Relay for Life raises money for cancer research, and we will be walking throughout the night at the Rowan County Fairgrounds.

Ok, enough talk for tonight...

Today was a long day. I had classes consistently from 9 AM to 2 PM, and for whatever reason I am just exhausted, plus my brain hurts. I swear I'm about to fall asleep here... Though my accounting teacher was really cool..

I was reading some for my into to computers class, but I am too tired to read more now. I'll probably read some later...

Today was my first day at RCCC. It was fun! I think the Intro to computers class is going to be good, even though I know a lot about computers already. I like my English teacher, she's sort of a free spirit, and is really cool. She just got the news yesterday that she would be teaching our class, so we talked for a bit and would get more info Thursday...
