Christa the Student.

Well, I managed to squeeze myself into school this semester. It wasn&#146t easy and it took some persistence and quite a bit of maneuvering, but I persevered! Because that&#146s what I do. Persevere. I also bite my lips and trip a lot, but that is neither here nor there.

I am really glad I did not give up on the semester, because my classes are extremely cool this year. I could only get three classes instead of my usual four, but that is still full-time. I have an advanced desktop publishing course, a magazine publishing overview and a flash fiction class. Three things I love the most! I know you are all very happy for me. I am so close now to graduating. It is very seductive. Sometimes I actually believe that I might be able to get a job I enjoy doing work I am passionate about. It sounds too good to be true, but it just might be possible, kids. It just might.

I am in the midst of some pretty big things right now and it is making me a bit crazy. There I was thinking about how boring my life had become, how routine and simple, the same things day in, day out, blah blah blah. And all of sudden, excitement started raining down on me. It is a bit overwhelming, but sometimes it is true—you get what you ask for and there is no going back.

I just hope I can handle it all.

I am so hungry right now, you have no idea.

    That is truly excellent! The good thing is YOU WORKED FOR IT. There are a lot of silverspooners out there that walk into paying situations. You
    will compete with them. They may have the connections and the nasty biting gossip, but when it boils down to the bottom line, those that worked for it ARE the bottom line. They are the survivors when things get tough. Good going!!! DG
