Orientation Is a Go


So I got confirmation this morning that I was cleared to set up my orientation with Austin Community College, although I still have two vaccinations to do between now and the start of the second semester.

I called the adviser, and have an appointment for next Tuesday afternoon to go meet with her and get the lowdown on how to enroll and what books I’ll need. Then I can get that information in the hands of TWC and we can figure out how the books will be acquired.

Today’s been fairly low-key, outside of the flurry of school-related activity. I’ve been working on the summer event in Star Trek Online for a good portion of the day and having fun with that.

On the whole, I’d have to say I’m pleased with the progress I’ve made recently. Hope I can keep up the forward momentum, but it goes without saying that the wrong thing at the wrong time can drastically affect that. I’ve got the tools to minimize anything like that happening, but to be honest, I haven’t felt down in weeks. I’ve not necessarily been up all that time either, but it’s been even keel or better over the past few months. I’m happy with that.

Bending the Rules


Perhaps not bending them as much as redefining them.

I’ve been very careful through the last few months to write each calendar day in my blog, so there’s not a day that I’ve skipped along the way. Well, I skipped the 12th altogether.

Except that I haven’t been to bed yet, and it’s quarter to one in the morning.

So I’m going to redefine that rule that writing counts so long as it’s done between waking up and going to bed. I recall bending this rule before, so I think doing so tonight won’t be a problem.

Having said that, today’s been a somewhat productive day. I’m trying to determine if I’m far enough in the application process at school to schedule an individual orientation. I sent an email over with two questions, and got a short reply answering one of them. I sent a follow up question back and have yet to hear back on that. I’ll follow that up tomorrow with a phone call, I think. The sooner I can get this process underway the sooner I’ll be able to discuss all the tuition expenses with my TWC liaison.

We watched episode seven of American Gods tonight. I think tonight’s my favorite episode so far. Can’t wait for the season finale next week.
