This week was a little stressful. On top of my Microbiology class and my TRiO class, we hosted a student from Germany for two nights. It sounds a lot easier than it really is, while trying to study for Microbiology. The students wanted me to take them shopping too many different places. So it took a lot of time away from my studying and work. But it is now Friday and the students left this morning, so I can spend more time studying. I originally started this semester full time taking 12 credits.
However a few weeks ago, we got news that our mortgage will be going up about $300 more a month so I had to lessen my load. I am now working more, to be able to afford to live life. It is crazy to me how much even groceries have gone up. But in the end it will all be worth it. I got my first Microbiology test back this week and I got an 84% on it. I was honestly surprised I did that well, I didn’t study as much as I should have. I took the test when I still had a full load and my life was very hectic. I am looking forward to being able to feel more comfortable with the next test now that I have more time. Overall this week went well. I am looking forward to the weekend so I can get some sleep.
