Midterm Week

I am now done with midterm week. I have wanted to post all week, but I was waiting to get through this school week. This means I only have one more set of midterms (next term)!!! I had two midterms this week. Both included essay questions, so I don't have my grade on them yet...waiting....

College update!!!

Taking 12 credits right now. 3 courses and 1 TECEP*. 5 weeks left!!!

30 credits left, 42 if you count the ones I am taking now.

6 1/2 months left until I am done with courses.

8 1/2 months until graduation.

Those are my goals and Lord willing, I will complete them soon!!!

*A TECEP is a lot like a CLEP test or a DANTE test or a self-study course. You study during the semester and then take a test at the end, much like a final exam.

9/11 - 10 years

Do you remember where you were on 9/11 2001? Can you say what you were doing when you heard the news on that?

I think that most Americans can remember. It is important that we remember. It is a part of history. The United States banded together on that day and stood firm.

Thank you to all of the people that were there on that day. All of those who fought for their lives and the lives of the people around them. Thank you to the soldiers that are fighting today to keep our country safe.

Thank you.

This is a song/poem that I would like to share with you that Johnny Cash wrote. It is about our Ragged Old Flag. Not only has it stood through all the events that he talked about, but many more, including Sept. 11th, 2001.

College Plus

Hey Friends,

I know you have heard me talk about College Plus! before! It is the coaching program that is helping me to get through college for less money and less time than a normal college would offer. It has cut my costs about in half and the 2 years of college I had left I will finish in about 1 year!

Here is a link to a website where you can sign up for more information. It also has my special Tell-a-friend code. (By the way, it is free to sign up for more info).

For more information about college plus, how much the savings are, how it works, the majors that are offered, and more check out their website:

Waiting and being patient

While I'm Waiting by John Waller {Fireproof music video with lyrics}

Here is a song I really like. I like to think about waiting on the Lord in any situation. And waiting is apart of being patient.

Here is a JOY Blog article about Patience:
