just a taste of the east coast...

At the end of the summer, I went to New Jersey and New York with my friends Chels and Nolan. We had a killer time. Here's just a taste of it...

I made a decision today.
I changed my major. Signed the paper and everything. Early Childhood Education is no more.
I felt really conflicted about it for a while. For quite some time, I'd felt that something was not quite right in my schooling. I've been decided on Early Childhood Education since my junior year of high school. At the time, it felt right for me. My plan was to get my degree at Utah State and then I would teach Kindergarten for the rest of my days.
It is not so.
I took a very basic class last year that studied marriages and families for a short period of time. I became hooked. I started this semester with thinking that I would take a marriage and family course and then a introductory course to elementary education and then I would be able to make my decision based off the two classes.
Here's where we get into my semester as of right now. I'm taking 17 credits. The most that a student can register for (without special permission) is 18. I'm like a full full time student. My elementary class calls for 15 hours of outside class work, not including reading and daily homework. Add that to my math class, my english class, my science class, and my marriage and family course.
Yeah, my brain feels like mush sometimes.
But my elementary class is just not doing it for me. Like at all. So I'm thinking about dropping the class to lighten my load to 14 credits. It's a little lower than I'd like but 15 hours of outside class work without the readings and homework?
Not feelin' it.

So as of right now, I am an Family, Consumer, and Human Development major, pre-Marriage and Family Therapy.

New Blog

Yeah, yeah, we're sick of all your excuses and unfulfilled promises Randi.
Is that what you're all thinking? Cause I would be.
Here's what's up:
I'm back in college.
I want to pull my hair out part of the time but I'm still loving it.
I have loads of pictures and stories to put on here.
Oh, and my friend Chels and I started a new blog.
It's Only Awkward if You Make It. It's a blog we'll co-write about our experiences of being a at home student (Chels) to being an away from home student (me). It'll included stories, tips, and the funny stuff we think of along the way. Go start following it. Riggggggght now.
