I finally have some time to think about what I want to write about so here’s a shpiel.
It’s only been three weeks into the Fall 2014 semester and I have quite a few things to say about it.
I hate programming. computer programming is not for me, algorithms and coding and all of that can just go burn in a fireplace–language is mild due to the fact that children or family will see this. (Or both) I didn’t think C++ would be so difficult because I always heard how easy was!–yeah right, for a compsci major maybe. I need help or I might have to drop this class, it doesnt help that my professor is older than chocolate and has a thick Russian accent (maybe it’s German) but half the time he needs other people to help him solve his own code. GOD HELP ME.
On the other hand, my visual tools and Flash professional class are by far my favorite classes I’ve taken in college. I finally get to work with the Adobe Master Suite I was given just a little over a year ago and I’m absolutely in love (more so than baking)
I get to work on an enormous iMac in class and even have a friend whom I can talk to (in Spanish!) So that’s great practice for me as well.
I think my favorite slang to hear her say is “dale” it makes me giggle.
I wish I could just skip the programming prerequisites and go to the design classes, I don’t understand the purpose of my need to program a computer if I will only be working with Web designing code languages…but, gotta do what you must right?
Just the fact that I’m once again a design major fills me with happiness beyond belief, even if it’s not graphic design.
Wait, technically, my area of study is called “Web Development” but I can teach myself most of that anyway, it just looks better when you have an actual degree for recruiters and companies–even if it’s just an associates.
Looking for a job, so far nothing but I’m keeping my fingers crossed on that one.
I also constantly catch myself thinking on how different my life is now in comparison to a few months ago, I’m learning to let go of the negative people in my life and learning to be alone for a long time and so far it’s going well.
I have new goals and wants and desires, one of them is definitely travel to Europe, for sure.
I also am growing to love coffee (and so is my stomach) hopefully not going to grow into another caffeine addiction but I have better self control now than I did at 16 that’s a story for another day but I guess most people know it anyway, I tend to be a broken record at times.
Cody’s doing fantastic by the way, still throwing tantrums and being hot tempered but this he inherited from his mom’s side. (Guilty)
His hands actually open pretty well despite the lack of Botox and he is starting to try harder to imitate certain actions and I couldn’t be any more proud!! He is growing fast and the thought of him being 4 months away from 4 is a terrifying thought.
Kids, don’t have kids because then you will realize how much faster time passes.
watching a video of Cody’s first laugh at 2 and a half months, how’s that for a throwback thursday?
Also, the title of the blog is a title of a book my mom used to read to my sister and I when we were younger about a mom elephant who wants a break from her baby elephants.
Good book, much recommend.
