Full load

I remember my first term at Kaplan and it is nothing like this term. I didn't expect it to be easy, but at the time my son was just born and sleeping all the time which game me plenty of time to sit and work. Now I am planning his first birthday, chasing him around the house, and back to work full time. We won't get into the laundry issue and I was forced to put my laptop behind the baby gate. It's a very uncomfortable way to work.
At the same time though, I am happy with myself for going back to school after ten years and am going to give it my all.

I am having an unusually hard time with school this term. I'm not sure if it is because I am back to work full time or if my eleven month old is taking up more of my time. It was so easy when he slept all day! So this weeks challenges and struggles are simply being able to sit down and type. My thesis is easier to write on a notepad and when I get a chance I transfer it to my laptop.

Halfway point!

These classes seem to go by faster and faster with each new term. I can't believe we are already halfway through this class. I have already learned so much concerning the importance of citing your work. I haven't been writing very much since I last was in college and sort of forgot about the whole bibliography thing. APA format is very different than a regular bibliography in my opinion, but I'm getting the hang of it.

This week has been very trying. My ten month old wants to get into anything he is not allowed to get into; mostly my laptop. It takes so long just to be able to write one sentence. I started keeping some cheese with me to give myself a few extra undivided minutes. Is that bad?
I'm also very proud of myself for finally figuring out the print screen button on my computer. I looked at all of the manuals and none of them had any information about the keyboard. I thought that assignment was going to be the end of me!
Anyway here comes the monster!

Hello everyone!
My name is Micah. I am studying health information technology and also have a full time job as a server, bartender, and mother. I live with my ten month old son, husband, and five year old black lab. I am excited about this upcoming class, but have absolutely no idea about posting blogs. Good luck to everyone else!
