Hey everyone, I'm having one of those days where everything just seems to be stressful due to technical difficulties I was having while taking an online exam for school. I hope everything I needed to send got there correctly, but just would appreciate knowing that some of you are thinking positively for me. It seems that lately I have had so many things around the house that have needed fixing and sometimes I get so frustrated with technology and mechanical equipment that I start feeling sad and mad about having to depend on these things so much. Other than that, I'm OK just sort of needed to vent and release so thank you in advance for listening.

Positive thoughts coming your way. Technology can be so exciting and so frustrating--often at the same time.

Take care,

Thanks so much you guys. I think I had my new ethernet cord plugged in incorrectly because I switched a couple things around and it's much better now. So hopefully I won't have the problem again. Everything was turned in alright but my test score still wasn't as great as I was expecting. But I think now that I know why I missed what I did, I will do much better on the next one.

Just trying to not stress out about school is a challenge for me, but I have to remember to just breathe and tell myself that I will get through it! It's hard because I wish I had more free time this summer, and sometimes I ask myself why I am putting myself through all of this, but I know I will regret not pursuing my educational goals. I think I'll be glad I'm getting these challenging classes taken care of now because then hopefully next school year I'll just have the classes I think I will really enjoy and am looking forward to taking. Then I think my heart will feel much lighter and healthier!

Hi NightWish,

I’m really glad you were able to get things sorted out with your computer. You’re right…you’ll do better next time…so try to put this behind you and focus on the next one!

I agree with you that this will totally be worth it, and I admire your attitude and perseverance through your challenges. Keep the faith – we’re all here cheering you on!

Hi NW, I am sending you positive thoughts as I know what you are going through.  Last week my computer totally crashed.  I got caught by a bad virus that wiped out everything.  Lucky my son's roomate is a computer engineer and he was able to restore everything.  I know how it feels when everything in the house goes wrong. If it's not having to call the plumber then the stove breaks down and the frig.  It is hard to take a lot going wrong but hopefully you are feeling better now.  I think you are wise to take these more difficult courses now and get them out of the way.  Then you can enjoy your next term's classes more.  I wish I was in a position to say I am so busy but I can't find a job so finding things to do isn't that easy.  Can only run so many errands because of expenses. But we all have to support each other so I wish you the very best with your studies and keep posting on how you are doing.  Finishing school will help you to find a better job

Aw, thanks all of you so very much! It's amazing how such encouraging words can really lift my spirits and give me the confidence I need to keep going. It's so awesome to have your support. I think a lot of us don't realize that we are much stronger than we think we are. Thank you for reminding me :-)

Aurora -- I'm so glad your computer is back! We would have missed you too much if you were gone much longer.
