Hi gang:

Just 8 more days to go until the end of the Summer semester at Front Range Community College!!! Last Friday I had 4 labs due in my Geology class, Sunday I had a test on 4 chapters in my Geology class and also my weekly journal was due in my Communications class, Monday my 9th chapter test was due in my Communications class and while I was waiting for some photos to be developed I researched then finished a 3-page assignment that was due tomorrow in my Geology class. Then came the big 15-page assignment in Geology after my photos were developed, which was due by last night.

In these last 8 days I just have my weekly journals for this week and next in my Communications class, my last 3 labs in my Geology class, 3 chapter tests on chapters #10, #11, and #12 in my Communications class, a chapter test on chapters #14-18 in my Geology class, and next Friday my final exam in my Geology class. I also have expected daily online writing contributions for both classes. (I am taking both classes online for 7 semester credit-hours in a short 10 week semester). Just in my first 9 weeks of this 10-week short semester I have 150 posts in my Geology class and 110 in my Communications class already.

Catch me after August 7th, as I am going to be really busy through then. Then comes Summer break for 2 weeks, though my wife and I will be spending a week of that time on vacation in Las Vegas and LA. This Fall semester I am taking another 10 credit-hours. After this Summer semester ends I will have 58 credit-hours, just 2 shy of being a junior. I am hoping for a 4.0 GPA for this summer's effort, but I am a little worried in my Communications class. I have found my great success in my Geology class surprising because before my success at my recovery I never did very well in my science classes. Perhaps I will try for a Geology minor too.

Just wanted to let you guys know why I haven't been posting much lately. It's crunch time and I have been busy. Hope that you guys have managed to hold down the fort without me.

Talk to you later,

Mark

Here it is early Monday morning and all that is left to do is the three chapter tests in my Communications class, and 2 labs, the chapter test on chapters 14-18, and my final exam in my Geology class. I'm done with all of my writing assignments and worked all weekend on my class participation in my Communications class. So far in 9 weeks of a 10 week short Summer semester, I have written 272 posts online for school plus all of my writing assignments too. Just another 68 credit-hours to go for my Bachelor of Science in Land Use Planning plus another 12 credit hours if I want a minor in Urban Planning too!!!

I am so ready for a vacation. Talk to you later,

Mark

All right, school is out. I now have two weeks to relax before the Fall semester starts up. Got a 4.0 GPA for my 7 credit-hours so far. Just 68 credit-hours more to go for my Bachelor of Science in Urban Land Use Planning. Another 9 credit-hours gets me a minor in Urban Planning from UCD too.

Not too bad for a retired truck driver, eh? See you in Las Vegas next week.

My semester just started and I have friends who are starting to leave for school, so we all went down to Foxwoods Casino. We gambled alittle, mostly Let it Ride and slots. We saw that "Bodies Revealed" exhibit, where they take bodies donated to science and they show all the different organs and stuff. If Vegas has one, go to it! it was AWESOME! Google it. I think I saw a listing for the Luxor Hotel. But anyway, some guy came up to us as we were leaving and gave us free tickets to Cirque de sole (spelling?) so we ended up doing that too. It was definitely a fun, relaxing day. We all got to have that one last whoraa before everybody left for school.
