Oklahoma Winter Storm part two

Hello everyone, the reason this is part two is that we had a major storm last month, right before Christmas.  That one dumped quite a bit of snow on the state but not much else.  Now this storm is a little different.  It has been dumping a lot of sleet and ice on parts of the state.  I'm in the NW and we have been lucky at this point, the only thing we are getting is snow.  Now my only other major problem is that it won't be over until I get to go into work tomorrow evening.  I am hoping everyone stays home so I don't have to work any accidents or anything lol.

Other than that, I have been trying to get ahead on my classes and I'm actually surprised as to how I'm doing in them.  I know as long as I stay focused I will do good and keep that in mind.

Here recently I have been doing more 'Twittering' and I'm finding out how much fun it is.  Another thing is that I am getting to know some really cool people from across the country here and that's a huge bonus there.

Well I better get back to some schoolwork so I'll chat with everyone later!

First Assignments

Well college has started full bore for me.  I have been taking classes online due to my school location, (its a 2 hour drive from me to El Reno) and work hours.  Now I know the first question you ask is 'Why didn't you just go to a college closer to you?'  Well I do have an answer for you.  A long time ago (like 10 years lol) I had transferred my credits from SWOSU to Redlands where I had started classes again.  Well due to jobs I had to stop.  While I was going to the police academy I decided to see if I could use that training along with the hours I had to complete my degree.  Since I had hours at Redlands and they had online classes I decided to finish up my associates there and then move to a 4 year university.  So I am in my 3rd, and should be final semester here before I can move on.

Well I am finding out my classes seem a lot more intense than my last two semesters.  I can tell my art appreciation class is going to take up quite a bit of time, second being my intro to poetry class followed by my criminology class.  As long as I stay focused and committed I think I should do pretty good here.  I do see a light at the end of the tunnel, just hope its not that freight train bearing down on me lol.
