New Computer?!

So I finally broke down and bought myself an iMac. You know, that shiny, sleek, beautiful monitor that has the whole computer inside? Yeah, that one. I got the one with 1,0024 GB because I've used most of the memory on my little MacBook.

I've wanted a desk top for a while now so that I can properly edit my documents by having two screens open at the same time.

I started my8th semester of college a few weeks ago. It's quite challenging. I'm taking Anatomy and Physiology I and Lab, Microbiology and Lab, Pharmacology, and Spanish III. The lab for Micro is pretty intense. We got to handle e.coli and other bacteria that I can't remember the name of.

Why am I taking all these classes? Oh, because I've put the English Major thing on hold for a while as I try to get into the Surgical Technician program at College #1.

I'm still teaching preschool and having fun with that. I haven't had ANY time to work on books, or READ them, for that matter. My schedule is as follows:

6:00 a.m. Wake up
7:20 a.m. Go to school
2:30 p.m. Go to job number one
6:30 p.m. Go to job number two
9:00 p.m. Come home
9:30 p.m. Eat dinner
9:45 p.m. Study until I can't see straight
11:40 p.m. Go go bed

So, as you can see, that doesn't leave me with much free time. My only days off are Saturdays and they're usually filled with homework and cleaning the house.

I've been cleaning out my desk today and came across all my old spiral notebooks containing just about every short story I've ever written. I also found the beginning of my children's book, Bennett Nelson scrawled across several pages from when I was 15 years old.

I might turn Bennett into an ebook since I've had no luck with finding a literary agent. Maybe I can at least get it out there for others to see instead of taking up space on my hard drive.

Well, it's 10:40 pm already. Guess I better get back to cleaning up the house so I can get to bed and watch a few episodes of Gray's Anatomy.
