I have written you only once since January 2019, and that was back in March of this year to discuss academic changes that I was in the process of making. There have been a LOT of other changes since post #610. This is going to be a hastily thrown together post that’s essentially a collection… Read More #612 – New Website, New Me
Regular readers of my blog – well, the ones I had before I took most of last year off – know that I use my blog as a coping mechanism whenever my mental illnesses get rough. I’d guess that most of my posts here for the first year and change I was writing were very… Read More #607 – Reaching Out
Today was a fantastic day. I got to spend the afternoon with one of my favorite people, and when I picked my wife up from work found out that she had an even better day after a conversation with her supervisor. The evening’s been spent lying in bed and goofing off on the computer. I’ll… Read More #601 – What a Lovely Day
Tonight I had my first bit of panic since starting this process of going back to school. I got an email from my biology instructor detailing where class notes can be found, as well as the syllabus. It’s the first communication that I’ve received that was class-specific and it took me aback for a few… Read More Stuff Gets Real
I’m falling asleep as I write this so this is going to be quick. Finished all my prep for classes on Monday. Hurricane Harvey is coming, and we’re prepared. Sleep now, more tomorrow.

I have another app, Elevate that I use for grammar, math, and short-term memory exercises. I do both of them every day. And according to this snapshot, I have been doing… Read More Consistency of Habit
Granted, it’s the weekend, and the trips weren’t far, but we went to the store and then later swung by a friend’s place to pick up something and stopped off at the drugstore on the way home. And I drove both times. It’s still a big deal to me to have a day where I… Read More Small Victory
Real short post tonight, since it’s bedtime. Woke up at 2:45 am and decided to start trying to grab my waitlisted classes. It wasn’t until after 8:00 that the website finally let me log in, and then it was another 15 minutes before it would show me my schedule. Turns out that I can’t register… Read More What a Weird Day
(Today’s going to be a real short post, because I’m real tired.) Today I put the finishing touches on most of the stuff that I have to do before classes start on the 28th. I got my student ID card made – I look appropriately awful in the photo – and I picked up the… Read More Ready As I’ll Ever Be
Yesterday I registered for my first college class. Last night, before I went to bed, I checked my account with the school. I had a zero balance. It was a great feeling to fall asleep with. This morning I had a meeting with the college’s Student Accessibility Services office. My counselor was very pleased that… Read More But Wait, There’s More!
