It doesn't seem like it's been 10 weeks , but I guess it has . I had fun in this class this term . I think I liked it better than comp 1 . I was fun doing the blog I had never done one before . This term I learned so much about how to write a better paper . I liked finding my own topic to write about . It made it easier to write the paper . I found so much stuff on topic I didn't know witch way to take my paper . I did make up my mind and I hope I got every thing I needed to write a good paper. I enjoyed the feedback I got for the class and Professor Barb . I think that helped me with my paper . I have also enjoyed all the seminar we had I learned a lot from them . I am going to miss this class I wish all my class mates good luck with the rest of their time at Kaplan . I just wish we could have gotten the new text book so i will have it later to use in my other classes . I think I did a better job in comp 2 than I did in comp 1 . Well good bye every one maybe some of us will have other classes together . Thank you Barb I really like your class .

Don't know what to say this term is all most over . I have been doing my best this term to keep my mind on school work but I am having a hard time right now . I know we don't have that long to go , but I have had a lot happen this last week . I have been trying to find a job , do school work and deal with the finanical aid office at school. I have all so been talking to a friend who is going through a bad time now . The woman he was living with and has a son with left him . Just because of some thing someone told her he loves his son so much . I can tell you I didn't think they should stay together but I didn't want things to happen the way they did. I am so up set she believed what this person told her . This woman said she loved him , but she left with out even listening to him. I know they fought a lot but if she was willing to stay through all the fighting I don't get why she just left . I am thinking she really didn't love him . All she wanted was a kid . Maybe I am wrong I don't know I do know here was a full moon this past week . Maybe that is why every thing has been so crazy . I just don't know I would like for things to start getting better . I have been so down lately I want to start feeling better . Well i will miss you all in class maybe we will have some more classes together . Good luck everyone on your final paper.

Well spent the weekend working on my paper . Thought the week would start off good cause I had a good weekend . Well my friend asked me to help her get some stuff from the house she lived in with this guy. She has been moved out for over 5 months now and she still has some things there . Well when we got there he had changed to locks on the front door , so we had to go around back . Well I stepped in a hole and hurt my ankle. I made it to the back and sat on the steps and I passed out . I got my dad to drive me to the doctors and the doctor told me I had a bad sprain . This is the second time I have sprained that ankle . I was my right ankle I didn't know if I would be able to drive , but I did it hurt to do it . The doctor didn't take X-rays of it at all . I told him I hear a popping sound when my foot went side ways , but he doesn't think I did any thing bad to it . I went to pick my son up form school he wouldn't let me do any thing when we got home . He told me I didn't need to cook I needed to sit down. We got to go sit some where else and put my foot up it's starting to hurt . See everyone in class .I can't believe this well be our next to the last week .WoW

Well this has been a long week . I like when someone reads my work and tells me what they see wrong with it . Then I can go back and fix what is wrong with it. I just don't know if I am good at reading other peoples paper . When I started here at Kaplan I had never had to do APA or read someone else paper and tell them what I liked or what was wrong with it. I hope I can be a help to someone else . I am just not so sure of myself when it comes to writing or letting someone know how their paper is. Well I am trying to change what Barb said was wrong with my paper and I thank Rosemarie for what she had to say . hope to see you all in class and good luck on your papers.

Well another busy week son has school and a baseball game tonight. I have been working on school work today . I have also been on the phone with the Financial Aid office . I wonder if anyone else has had any problems with them . I have had to send a paper in over 9 times to them . My school bill has not been paid yet .I am so upset I think I have been spending more time on the phone with them than I have been spending on my school work .I think that is so sad.They all keep telling me the same thing I am so tried of having to call them to find out what is going on. Well get had to get that off my chest.

I know it's not easy to take care of a child on your own , but if you don't get along with some one should you stay with them. I was married for two years I kicked my husband out after my sons first birthday . He wouldn't keep a job and all we did was fight . We still fight and I hate it . I have a friend who is going to marry this girl just because they have a kid . They don't get along and they have broken up at lest four time in the past year . I just don't see how it will work . Am I wrong for thinking that I want him to be happy , but he is not . He is doing this to stay with the kid . I think that is the wrong reason . I don't think things will end good for him . I don't know what else to tell him I am trying to be a friend and listen to him when he needs to talk , but I don't agree with what he is doing it's not the 1960's where it was a bad thing to have a kid a take care of it a lone . I am so scared that some one is going to get hurt and I think it will be the kid . I can't stand to see kids get hurt . I love children and they should have a family , but not one that is not happy . I also know people have to make their own mistakes and learn from them . I just hate that a child is going to get hurt in all of this . I know my son wants a dad , but I can give him that his dad likes to drink to much and i can't live like that any more and my son shouldn't have to . That is why I left him i couldn't handle the drinking. Well I guess I have said enough see you all in class.

Had a very busy week son started school and he had baseball games .He is with his dad this weekend so I have some time to my self . I can do my school work and clean the house . I like my time a lone , but I miss having someone here.I can get a lot done while he is gone I just hate not having any one to talk to or do things with .I really hate eating alone . One of my friends told me I was a good person , but why is it so hard to find a guy who wants to be with me . I haven't had any luck with men it seems they only want a friend or just a one night stand . I am trying my best to just take care of my son and be a lone , but some times it's hard . I see all these couples that are happy and I want to know what I am doing wrong. My friends tell me it takes time well I told them I have been waiting for a long time .I am 42 years old and haven't find the right guy yet .I told them I give up I am not looking any more . I guess I will just do my school work and not worry about a man.

Well had a long day had to cut my grass it was getting bad. I hate to do it but I know I have it . Some time living a with just a 8 year old just sucks but it has been just me and him for over 7 years now . I am use to doing everything myself some times it hard , but I do it for my son. I never thought I would be a single mom but I am . My mom always told me it takes two to raise a kid . Well I am trying my best to do it by myself . I have to ask her for help every now and then . I hate having to ask her , but she and my dad are all I have to help when I need it. It's good to have family to help you out . Just wonder some times where all the good single men are who want to have a family are . I haven't found one yet .

Today was the first day of school for my son. I have to get use to getting up and taking him to school every day .I didn't think he would want to go back to school , but he was ready . He has a baseball game tonight and I have my other class tonight . I hope his game will not take to long . I don't want to miss class . He should go to bed early tonight he didn't go to bed last night until 11:00pm . I don't know why he stayed up so late . Hope I can sleep better tonight to I haven't been sleeping good lately . Hope I thing will start to get better soon I have been out of work to long and it's starting to get to me .I think all the women who are stay at home moms do a very hard job , I have worked all of my life and the only time I stayed home was when I had my son . I am glad I am in school it gives me some thing to do . I just hate not being around my friends that I use to work with I miss them.
