slacker? I think not....


Slacker... Yes, but I have been busy! A couple of weeks ago Mike took me to Pei Wei. My fortune said "Don't give up; the beginning is always the hardest." Well I am finishing up my first grad class. It was a 6 week class, and I really loved it! NOW...I am stressed. I have power point presentation next week, a pamplet due, and a 5 page APA style report to write. Do you know how loooonnng it has been since I have written a report, let alone an APA style. WHAT THE BEEP is APA? So I am trying to get ahead of schedule and work on my report. Sunday after church I spread myself out all over Mike's office and began to write that report! I am almost done with it, I hope I have cited my references right.

Other good news to share:) Calla ended up making the cheer team after all. Her principal called us last week and they were going over the score sheets so they could add some new girls to the team. Calla should have actually made the team to begin with they just misplaced her score sheet and it was set in the reject pile! She is very excited about the team. She just wished she would had her name on the original "YOU ARE A WINNER" list. Anyway, better late than never I guess.

Keep up the good work Janet. I know that you can do it and it will be so rewarding in the end. There is a good website that writes you references for you...it is awesome and I use it all the time. It is called noodletools.com

Calla! Congrats! That is so exciting. You will have to take pictures and send them to us!

APA style is horrendous... I still can't believe they force people to write according to that junk! Ummm... my sister was the english lab tutor that helped everyone out with it so maybe I'd better stop there... she was also the only reason I survived in college :)

Yay to Calla!! Sorry you had to go through the UGH to get the good :)

I don't know what the beep APA style is either. I'm guessing Tiffy or Calla can help you with the Power Point since they teach it at such a young age in school! I needed to do one once and could have really used a teenager in my house! I admire you for working so hard!

Thanks Jessica, I went to that Noodle site and it is amazing. I also found a site from Perdue University that helps format the body of the paper!

I cant believe all that you are doing to fill your life. I hope you get a great grade on your presentation. You deserve it. Hang in there.

I hate APA! I have a book on every kind of APA refernce you might need if you wanna borrow it...but I'm sure you have it. If not, let me know. Good job on braving the grad school adventure. You will be great!
