Soo yesterday was my first day of school. And my schedule was SOOO messed up and I was soo stressed all day. So stressed in fact that my cheeks have been a wonderful shade of bright pink all yesterday and today. Which is nice becuz make up wont cover it up lol I got my schedule fixed though. But I got put into a new AP class. And I have a week now to read a book and a HUGE packet that everyone else in the class had all summer to work on. I am not even done with my summer english work completely yet. But I will be tonight. Today was much better than yesterday. Even though I was really tired especially after color guard practice. But me and my friend went to go get McDonalds afterwards which was nice lol I might be starting my job finally this weekend =) And I've heard they can be difficult about scheduling so Im going to have a sit down with the manager to let them know I dont think I can handle alot.

Sorry that was kinda alot lol I havent posted in a week or so and I have a bunch on my mind lol

hi ritzbit....i have been thinking about you....so glad you got back to us. Wow, you have really had a full week...ap classes and color guard and reading assignments, and a new job, and mcdonalds with a friend.....don't forget to pace yourself....do you wear skin protection while practicing outside?

glad you brought us up to date....take care of yourself, and keep us posted.

Although it's been a few years, I still remember my first day at USM. It was a totally stressed out, confusing day that I barely remember the details of. The next day was better, and after that, it was pretty much routine, except for the parties. Seriously, just go with the flow, and it will all pretty much fall into place. You'll do fine.

I figure things will be less crazy next week lol but I start my actual college class next week so we'll see lol

And yes I do wear sun block, most days. But today in my rush to get out to my friends car this morning I remembered everything but my sun block. We weren't outside too long though thank goodness and it was cloudy today

Don't forget the sun still comes through the clouds...so remember that sunscreen! We don't want you to get sick!

You did have such a busy week! I agree with Phyllis to pace yourself. I think it is a good idea to talk to you manager to work with you and see what you can handle!

Good luck with everything falling into routine for you in the next coming weeks! :yes:

Hi Ritz...happy school year. Although it may not seem like it now your stress for your future well being is a good thing. Just don't get an ulcer form it :laugh: AP courses show you really want to learn and be something in life so YOU GO GIRL!! But try to enjoy your youth and know that you will be just fine. Have an awesome school year and remember we are always here. :hug:

Hey Ritzbit,

You mentioned Color Guard and Uniforms, do you go to military school? Many moons ago when I was in the Army, I went to basic NCO school, and then Tank Commander School at Ft. Knox in your great state of Kentucky. I loved it there.
