It's still cold here, I think it's like 21 degrees at the moment. I so can't wait for Spring!! School is going well, I have my first test this week, tomorrow actually. I'm not ready for it, I need to study some more. I think I'm getting sick again :0( All I want to do is sleep and my head has been hurting more the past couple of days. I work today and then I'm off til Tuesday, I'm going to catch up on some sleep and the laundry. Guess I'll use that time to catch up on my homework so I can stay ahead on it. Everything else is pretty much the same.

OMGosh, it is SO cold here. It got down to like 6 degrees!! The high for today is 29. I know for some people that that isn't to bad but HELLO! We live int he south, it's supposed to be warm! We keep going from decently warm to freezing cold, back and forth. I can't believe they are making the kids go to school with the temps so low, normally they'll close school, for some reason they think it's ok to go today.
I had class today, this semester is my last one before nursing school, hopefully I'll get accepted. Anyways, I'm taking microbiology. Last Tuesday we looked at sample tubes of different kinds of bacteria. We learned how to take the bacteria and make cultures, my bacteria was bacillus, she told us that we wouldn't get our own cultuers back because the class before us would use them. Today we got the cultures back to look at them, some how, don't know how, but I got my own culture back!! I was so excited to actually get to see my own and that I had actually grown bacillus!! We took the cultures and had to make slides with them. We stained them and all that, it was interesting. Then we got to look at our slides through the microscope. It was so awesome looking!! The staining process was long, all the die washed off of my slide, or so it seemed but the bacillus had turned a bright fushia color, it's was way cool! I think I'm going to really enjoy this class!! If you want to look it up and see what I seen, it's Bacillus cereus.

I start back to school today, I can't say that I'm excited cause I'm not! I'm glad to be getting it done but... Micro is going to be a long class, 9:10-12:30. Hopefully we'll get a small break during this class. I'm going to try to go a little early this morning so I can get a good seat. This class should be interesting, we'll get to grow things like molds, bacteria, ect. I looked through my book here while back and it looks so complicated. Anyways, it should be interesting, if not it will be boring as hell!

It has been raining non~stop for hours and hours. I wish it would stop raining. It has been raining so hard and dropping tons of water. I'm afraid we'll need boats soon. The ditches and some parts of the roads were covered in water last night when I left work, almost 8 hours ago so I can imagine what it's like out there now. This one spot in the road was covered totally on the opposite side of the road on my way home, I got to that spot at the same time as an on coming truck, I had my window cracked, thank goodness it wasn't cracked much, that truck soaked mine, it was almost funny in away. I wish it were warmer so we could go out and play in the ditches!! This kind of weather makes me want to curl up with a warm binky and sleep all day!
