Things so far..

Things are looking good so far. (^*^) I was going to take four classes, three of them online and one on-campus art class. One of them canceled, though, so I checked with the financial aid people and they said I'll just be getting a smaller amount of grant money for taking fewer classes. So since Two-Dimensional Design (AR 103) turned out to be much less drawing than I was hoping for (we'd do one, maybe two drawings and mostly paint), and because it was a M/W/F class instead of the T/R class I was hoping for, I decided to drop it.

Right now, I'm taking Digital Photography for Fine Arts (AR 112) and Elements of Statistics (MA 116). Statistics I'm taking as a repeat to try for a better grade and photography I'm taking to have some fun. Both of them I'm taking to maintain my Phi Theta Kappa membership so I can see about getting health insurance through them, and they're both online. This gives me mornings before work off, means I can take extended weekends without putting myself behind in classes and all that good stuff.

Also, just yesterday I picked the required materials for my photography course: Adobe Creative Suite CS2.3 Premium, an $1199 software package, for $199. The $199 should be reimbursed in a couple of weeks thanks to grant money. So about $1200 in art and web software completely free and legal. *squee!*

Also, helen99 is offering me the use of her spare digital camera, now that her favorite one is fixed, so that will save me time and money on picking up disposable cameras and using scans of the pictures. Complete with travel case, spare batteries, 512 MB memory card and USB/FireWire cable. yay!

So I can continue to try and clean out my head and defrag things while still attending both work and school.. and as I do that I can work on eating healthfully, saving money and working on what I'll be doing about getting more income and finding a new place to live. Which reminds me, I still have to see about stopping by that Indian grocer in Takoma Park..
