Zombies and Heavy Christmas Trees

Classes, Coursework No Comments »

I recently read my first Zombie novel. It was freakin’ awesome! If you want to enjoy a great read, pick up S.G. Brown’s “Breathers.” You won’t be disappointed, I promise! This novel was one the last works I’ve had to read for my Horror, Fantasy, and Science Fiction Literature course. I can’t say enough about this class. FYI, if you’re looking for a Gordan Rule class, and you like to read Horror, this is the one for you. Dr. Ford, whom I seem to write about all the time (but he really deserves it), teaches the class (LIT 2310). The only bad thing is that he teaches it every other semester. It won’t be available for the upcoming spring semester.

Zombies aside, I’m moving on, at about 100 plus

MPH! Down to the last official week of classes, and there is absolutely NO way out of not being stressed. It’s something you kind of just accept—the workload—I mean it IS college, right?

So in between my mini panic attacks, I found the time to drag all the Christmas stuff, to include the world’s heaviest Christmas tree, down from the attic. I did that last week. Just a few hours ago I actually took it out of the box, which had been sitting in the corner of the living room (between you and me, I thought about just putting some lights on the box and calling it good) but I decided to stop being such a scrooge.

A Huge Success

Campus Activities, Clubs, Coursework, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

I can’t talk, but I’m alive!  Sorry I disappeared for a while.  No, I wasn’t attacked by the ghost in the bathroom of the Venice Library, but I was attacked by a werewolf, and it was an absolute blast!  My voice is slowly coming back after four days of screaming. All this week I helped out the POP Culture Club with the annual Haunted House, and it was a HUGE success.  We raised approximately $1000.  It was a lot of sweat, but it was all worth it.  I worked until 10:30ish (along with several other club members) from Tuesday until Thursday night.  Last night we closed up shop at 11:30pm.  While we were all having insane amounts of fun we also had to attend classes, do our homework, and take exams.  I’m telling you right now that it WAS NOT EASY.  And I would like to give a shout out to my friend Casey (President of the Pop Culture Club) who joined me with getting two of the highest grades on our Archeology Midterm this week. We both managed to pull off A’s.  That balance I talked about earlier was extremely challenging this past week.  I think I almost broke, but I managed to keep my cranium from exploding.

Well, it’s Saturday night, and tomorrow at 9am we are taking down the Haunted House.

And now that the Haunted House is over, it’s off to the next club project: The Veterans ExchangeToes for Joes” Sock Drive, which kicks of this coming Wed, November 3rd at the Fall Ball.  We will be placing three boxes on campus in BLDG 100, BLDG 800, and BLDG 600.  It is our goal to collect as many clean and unopened packages of work or athletic socks as possible.  When the drive ends on November 12th, all of the socks will be placed in Personal Hygiene Care Packages which will then be sent to local troops currently deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Well, that’s enough for now.  I’ll try not to stay away so long next time!

Is the health care debate wearing me down? Is it the recent norovirus flu I had that is messing me up? Am I lazy? overloaded/worked? anxious to graduate? What is it that is causing me to fall behind is just about EVERYTHING! Am I just looking for a way to not do work, or am I really overloaded with work? I feel stressed out,

and I swear I am doing the best I can.

I never tried to push myself to the limit, though. I never added more and more on until it was too much. Thus, I have not known just how much I could handle until now. This, of course, is pertaining to responsibilities of work/school load. Trust me, I have had heavy loads before – as we all have. It seems heavy loads is a way of life.

I try to balance my responsibilities vs. entertainment. It seems responsibilities are so great and in such large quantities that I have no entertainment time; and yet, I force entertainment time. I refuse to not be entertained.

I apologize for being quiet this month. I am doing what I can.

Pizza with the President on the Venice campus has been cancelled at this time. It was supposed to be Tuesday, March 23rd. I have not heard of a new date yet.

I hope no one else feels stressed like I do from the work load. Six more weeks left; that’s all! (Seven if you include Finals week.)

I am graduating this semester, but it feels so far away even though it is seven weeks away.

This blog seems just as sporadic as my semester is/has been.

In my search I went to the Career Resource Center and found a website on Vocational Biographies. The site was helpful to search the career you already have in mind, or under a general idea, like english and writing. I went and found Technical Writer, which gave an article about a woman who holds that job title. Then it goes on to offer what education you need, what personality traits (it didn’t list being poor and weary as a trait), and more websites for information!�

There was one other fun website that I remembered called Salary.com. It’s really easy, you just insert your desired job, and area code and you’re off! Once you find the job you can change your education level and read a salary range. If I were to become a Technical Writer, I would probably earn around $42,000 at entry level. Not bad! There’s really a lot of stuff you can do with this website that gives you an idea of what your future can be.

The Two Week Swing

Coursework, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

I think I’m finally starting to get into the swing of school. There was a kid in my class the other day who informed our teacher that he was now mentally there (after two weeks). That got me thinking. I had been doing my homework and blogging, but I wasn’t getting the ideas I was hoping for. My heart and mind took a little while to catch up to one another.

I also had another shiny revelation today: exercise really does help you focus! Usually I just feel more centered with myself after exercising. Then there I was today, sitting on my leopard printed couch, firing through my Spanish flash cards. To clear up any questions, the couch is covered with a leopard print comforter…and it is not mine. Either way, my memory was working overtime with ease, and it was swell.

That brings me to my Blerd (Blog Word…I added the e just for grammatical spite). That word is Focus. You all know what focus means, but I found it interesting that Webster’s Dictionary said it was “the point where rays of light, heat, etc. come together…” Meaning, the light in your brain coincides with the heat you’re producing from that cardio session.

Time management…

is, and I’ve realized I need to learn how to improve my time management skills a little bit. The semester is dwindling away, as I continue working full time while applying and preparing to transfer to USF. TIME has become a precious thing for me; not to be taken for granted or wasted. Several things are helping me stay balanced: prioritizing, making lists, using my planner, organizing, setting personal deadlines and goals, as well as staying aware of deadlines.

HELPFUL TIP!! Take advantage of “stolen” time by studying on your lunch break, or anywhere you have waiting time.

Don’t forget how important it is to fit

in a little fun time with family and friends so you don’t become burnt out and out of touch. I think we all struggle with this from time to time (no pun intended) so don’t be too hard on yourself. Just take a step back to reevaluate things if needed.

Don’t ever forget why you’re doing what you’re doing, and that all of your hard work will pay off. Nothing worth having comes easy.

Making the most out of your assignments…

Classes, Coursework No Comments »

I recently had an assignment to do for my Community Health Problems online class. I had to visit five different places in the community and interview someone there about the different services they provide to the community. Honestly at first I was somewhat overwhelmed with the thought of trying to make time to go visit five different places but I got on the phone, made my appointments and was somehow able to fit all of them in to my schedule. I chose to go to Summerfield Retirement Residence, Manatee Glens, The Community Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing of Manatee and Sarasota, YMCA and Jewish Family and Children Services. All of the people I met with were very nice and helpful and it was interesting to learn about all of the different things these places do provide to the community, they provide a lot more than I thought or expected.

This assignment also helped me to realize that even though we might not understand why our instructors have us do different assignments there is always a reason for it. Doing this helped me to realize that it was important and beneficial to actually meet with someone face to face instead of just finding the information online.  It was a good experience to dress up nice, make a good impression and meet with important people that work for these different places in the community. It was also good to learn more about all of the services provided because who knows maybe I will need to take advantage of one of the services someday or I could be a help to someone else who is looking for help in the community.

So I am glad that I was able to do this assignment and make the most out of it. I was able to learn a lot and meet some influential people in the community who might be important contacts for my future. So the next time you have an assignment and you think to yourself why do I need to do this or how is this going to benefit me in the future, go into the assignment with a positive attitude whatever it may be and make the most out of it and you might be surprised about what you learn and how it benefited you.

Changing my major…

Career, Classes, Coursework No Comments »

The reason why I originally decided to change my major was because an advisor from the BSW program came into two of my classes and talked about the program and as she was talking I realized this is what I should be going for not Clinical Psychology! I was a little bummed at first just because I’ve thought ever since high school that I was going to go for Clinical Psychology and I did research on what they do but it wasn’t until I heard about this program and read a description of what Clinical Psychologists do from my Applied Psychology book that I realized – ugh that doesn’t sound like what I thought I was going for all along!

This is what I read when I was like – ah that’s totally not me! “Clinical psychologists focus on assessment, diagnosis and treatment procedures of mildly to severely disturbed persons. They interview clients and write case studies.”

With my degree in Social Work I still want to work in the mental health field and the description of that is: Mental health and substance abuse social workers assess and treat individuals with mental illness or substance abuse problems, including abuse of alcohol, tobacco or other drugs. Such services include individual and group therapy, outreach, crisis intervention, social rehabilitation and teaching skills needed for everyday living. They also may help plan for supportive services to ease clients’ return to the community. Mental health and substance abuse social workers are likely to work in hospitals, substance abuse treatment centers, individual and family services agencies

or local governments. These social workers may be known as clinical social workers. Now this sounds like my dream job!

So with this new discovery of mine I’ve been doing a lot of research and this was a good week for me as far as school goes. I had a phone consult with the coordinator from USF for the Bachelor’s in Social Work program. It went very well. I was able to get all of my questions that I have about my change and the program answered and I was also able to figure out my schedule for the rest of my time at MCC. This summer I am taking Statistics and American Government. I am taking them Summer B. It will be nice to have part of the summer off — this is the least amount of classes I ever taken and the least I have ever paid in tuition which is also a bonus! Then in the Fall I will take College Algebra, History of the United States I and Macroeconomics and then I will be done at MCC. I will start at USF Spring of 2010 and should be done with my with my Bachelor’s Fall of 2011! A couple of perks I found out about during my research:

- If I have 68 or more credits from MCC I will not have to take any electives at USF – this will save more time and money and for this program

-My two years of the same foreign language from high school will fulfill my language requirements

-This program is nationally accredited.

Research

Coursework No Comments »

I have three oral research reports due before Spring Break. While it’s handy that they’re scheduled for the same week, it’s also nice that I have tools already provided by MCC for research. One tool is the Library Databases. You can access this by going to the MCC website and under the tab “library” at the top click on “Online Journals & Magazines.” This takes you directly to the database login. The databases are peer reviewed essays, statistics and other content. When I say “peer reviewed” I mean that the information is correct and reliable. Unlike when you Google your topic and are unsure of the facts.

search.” If you don’t want to physically go to the MCC library, you can still find more and more e-books listed. E-books are files you can open in pdf format from your house or laptop. If you ever have trouble logging into the library or databases, ask your librarian or professor.
Well, I’m off to continue my homework.

The Erik Method

Coursework, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

Dear [soon-to-be] College Student,

I am sitting on the couch watching Fresh Prince of Bell-Air episodes for the 137th time, when suddenly I remember that I have homework due. As I drag myself with excitement for this imminent task, I have a brilliant idea:

“Why don’t I just do my homework during the commercials? Therefore I do not have to choose between television and my homework.” I thought.The plan worked so flawlessly (I’ll tap myself on the back), that I decided to name it. So I called it “The Erik Method”.

Studies show that for every hour that a student spends in the classroom, they should be reviewing three hours at home. These are the habits of highly-successful college students. Even just a glance at the notes you took at school will help… anything to simply refresh your memory with the information that you have written down. Now every time commercials come on TV, I’m not so discouraged because I can be efficient and do homework while all the silly advertisements are muted.

There is, however, a drawback to the “Erik Method”. You should not try this form of efficient time-management for studying for exams. This is due to the fact that studying requires intense retention of the materials which will be very difficult to accomplish in 3 minute intervals of time (between commercials). Other than that, doing
