This is my end of month Wrap up for September. On here you will see what’s been going on in my life, what I’m reading both for school and for personal reads, what I’m listening to and what is on my to read list. I’ll also be posting a list with what I’ve posted in the past month.
Well this month has been a whirlwind of activity and things happening for me.
Going on in my Life:
- Still not sure what I was thinking when I decided I wanted to go to Grad school!
- Has realized and firmly believe that have any students attend classes from 7 pm to 9:30 is stupid. I mean really most of our brains clock out at 8… maybe 8:30 at the latest. So for those of us students who do not live near campus and have to drive this is crap!
- I’ve had to lead two discussions over some readings that I didn’t really understand.
- My Sister had her Baby!!!! I have a new Niece!
Even though it’s been a month since school started, it is still pretty hectic. While I’m an avid reader and can get through probably two or three books a week, having to read the dense material that is required for my master’s program is problematic. First you have the first read, where you highlight the important bits. Then you have the second read where you try to understand what you read the first time. Then if you have time you read it a third time to try and make connections. I’ve never wanted to not read before.
Below is a list of things that I’ve read, am reading, am listening to, and is on my to read list. I’ve also linked each one so that they are easier for you to find.

- Zip, Zero, Zilch by Tammy Falkner
