Whether accurate or not, it is what I choose to believe to protect myself from implosion.
Here are some truths to back up my hypothesis.
- I will be driving only two days a week to Warrensburg. That's $800 I won't be spending on gasoline and 80 hours I can dedicate to more productive activities...like sleeping and watering the houseplants.
- The classes I'm taking are reportedly easier than those I just experienced. According to the instructor, Medical Nutrition II is easier than Med I. Supposedly the same goes for Advanced Food Systems Management. Two classes are online, one at JCCC, and Community Nutrition has a reputation for being "a joke."
- It will be my last semester of undergrad. There is a piece of parchment and a cap and a gown and a celebration following whatever this term brings. "Celebration" should probably be in all caps, bold, italics and multicolored...and perhaps jiggling about the screen excitedly. The end of this term calls for one heckuva party -- if only in my head.
P.S. I haven't forgotten about the whole public-humiliation-weight-loss thing. Nor have my pants.
