Happy Student X-ing

I LOVE SCHOOL! You know, I think I could easily be one of those forever college people. Just keep on going to school and learning and learning. Happily, this thing I'm going to school for can very easily accommodate that desire. Once I'm done with this course, there are SO many weekend seminar type learning opportunities, and several other specialties a person can learn while spending a few more months in school of some sort.

Of course, I won't be opting to do that right away, because I really need to start getting a paycheck within a few weeks of graduation. Long-term, however... it's gonna be fun. Especially since my bestest friend is also a massage therapist, at some point we may get to travel together to do some classes. (how fun would THAT be?) squeeeeee!

So, I've mostly made 100's on my quizzes (excepting 3) (and that's only 3 out of... oh.... 8 or 9 or something like that) I need to go back and write down my grades. One thing I've noticed is that I have MUCH less test anxiety at 39 than I had at say 17 =) hahahaaa funny how that works, eh? I'm retaining a surprising amount of this stuff, too, which is a relief, cuz I was a LITTLE worried about that.

I have NO more knitting to report, but I think I will soon find a way to study and knit and watch TV at the same time. Now if I could just fit chocolate in there somewhere.... lol mmmmm that reminds me, I need to go to the store =)) yaay chocolate.

OH yeah, one cool thing I did the other day.... I've had pepper plants in the ground since the Spring, and they've bloomed and bloomed and stopped blooming and bloomed again with NO peppers even thinking about developing. SO... the other day, I noticed there were blooms again, so I pollinated the blooms myself. Guess what? Now I have peppers and that was just last week, so it worked pretty fast. I don't think I've ever done that before. It's sorta weird because we have plenty of bees and such around here, not sure why the peppers were overlooked, unless the pollen is just too spicy or something. It is a little spicy, I rubbed my lip (not thinking) and it heated up a little. It was sorta cool. Hopefully the peppers have time to mature a bit before they go off into a Wintery oblivion. We'll see.

One more story and I'll let y'all off the hook. It was so sweet. I was talking to my youngest (soon to be 5) kiddo and said something about massage, and he perked up and said "WHAT?" I said, "Yeah, I'm going to massage school." He opened up his little arms for a hug and said, "Mamma! That's AWESOME!" - How sweet is that? **blinketey blink** Such a great little guy - sigh.

Ok, off to figure out this knitting/study combination thing... ttyl =)

Hey, thanks for the comment/s.
Elijah's hedgehog? No, it's not here that I've seen, but I'll certainly keep an eye out for it.

I could go for some watching of Persuasions.
