Done jumping through hoops

What have I done? That is the question of my life. Let’s see. I signed up for an online Astrology School. It’s the best one out there so it isn’t as cheap as I would like. I think I still have a couple of days to get a refund. But I doubt I do that. I’m only taking one class because that’s what is recommended and it is expensive. I’m not sure whether I’m going to get a certificate (3 courses) or a Professional Diploma (at least 12 courses – minimum of 3 years to finish).

Orientation is January 6. And then we have 11 or 12 weekly classes on Sunday afternoon. It is a webinar like class. They want us to have a webcam, but I’m using my camera on my Mac. I think it is good enough. I may reconsider. I did buy a headset from Amazon. It is highly rated, noise canceling etc.

I’m nervous because participation will be part of my grade. I’ve already decided that I HAVE TO participate online. I’m not sure about participating during class time. If I’m called on, of course, I will participate. However, if they expect us to just um, talk. Oooh. I don’t know about that. That’s scary shit!

So if this class goes well, I might take more classes. I’m not going during the summer semester. I might go during the Fall. I would like to IF I like the first class. Even if I don’t like the first class, I know I will learn something. I will probably learn a lot. I tried learning this stuff on my own, but sigh. Astrology is so hard. I love it but…hard.

Oh, I also signed up for Nutrisystem. Haha! I was on NS about 3-4 years ago. It worked. I hope to stay on it for at least a year. I just want to lose about 20-30 pounds and then maintain it. 20 pounds is probably more realistic since I’m on a shitload of medicine that causes weight gain. During the winter, I always gain weight because I go into hibernation.

I would go off NS for money reasons OR because I still eat out and don’t follow the diet. I wanted to start on Monday, Dec 31 but I don’t think my food will be here by then. So I will probably plan to start January 6 or 7. I’m going grocery shopping on Sunday. I will try to buy as little food as possible.

Oh! The most important issue. My dog:

His second lab result came back fine. I was ecstatic for about 4 days. But on Wednesday night, he had kidney issues. I think. He couldn’t hold his urine, but everything seems fine now. I will take him to the vet if necessary. I’m not sure what’s going on since the vet just said everything was fine. UPDATE: Well, since Wednesday night everything seems fine. I’m typing this on Friday night.

Woohoo! I just found out my unfrozen food is coming tomorrow! WOW. That’s fast. I usually order more frozen food than unfrozen, but this time I didn’t. So I have a lot of food coming tomorrow. Since I have to take my mom out to eat for her birthday on Sunday, I won’t start Nutrisystem until Monday, December 31. The frozen food should be here by next Friday.

We’re going to O’Charley’s (her choice) for her bday. I was going to order salmon, but nah. I’m eating my last burger for a while. Should be fun. 😉 My last restaurant until my birthday in May?? I hope so. I have to talk about my birthday plans. My main concern is how expensive it’s going to be since I’m taking my dog. (Only the expensive hotels with suites allow dogs. Why is that?) I’m also worried the 3 out of 15 hotels that accept dogs will sell out before I can book. I hope not. I haven’t had a real beach vacation in years. I used to go every year. LOL. I just typed out – every week. I wish I could go to the beach every week.

This week I…

Music of the week (my top 8 most listened to): Ellie Goulding, Ariana Grande, Rachel Platten, Rachel Kerr, Alessia Cara, Coldplay, Kelsea Ballerini

TV of the week:  basketball, The Haunting of Hill House, The Innocent Man

I finished The Haunting of Hill House. I would give it a B-. I lost interest during the last 3 episodes, so I don’t really know what happened…but I watched it.

Movie of the week: None

Podcasts of the week:  Pod Save America, Septic, The Astrology Podcast, The Lively Show, True Crime Garage

Books of the week: Now reading:

Speaking of books, I got my two textbooks for my astrology class. I have started reading one. The other is a little too advanced for me to get right now. I will probably list them in this section once class starts because I won’t have time to read much else.

Plans for the Weekend: I’m working overtime tomorrow morning. On Sunday, I’m going on a quick grocery store trip and then taking my mom out to eat. I’m not working on New Year’s. I didn’t get to work on Xmas. I tried, but they wouldn’t let me. :/

This will be a busy weekend because it’s my last free weekend before school starts. I finished all but one of my blog posts for January (on my tarot/astrology website). I have a tarot reading to do. I would love to get that done on Saturday. I have a ton of pics to take for Instagram. I have to work on my eBook. I want to release that on January 17th. I have about 15% done. Ick. I eventually want to turn this eBook into a webinar which is really scary. But that won’t happen until April or May or maybe summer. LOL. Who knows?

Have an excellent weekend. Thanks so much for checking in! 🙂
