Happy Thanksgiving

To all my family, friends, 

Whether you are with those you love, family, friends, co-works, work, unable to travel to be with them, serving your country, whatever the reason. You are missed. I hope you all have great weekend where ever you are.

New Internship

I lucked into an internship. David was talking to the Dean Tzeng of the Whitson-Hester School of Nursing at Tennessee Tech about a research they are working on. During their meeting, she mentioned that she was needing some marketing help. David mentioned that I was sitting outside waiting for his meeting to end and that I was a Marketing and Business Information Technology major. She asked him to have me come in. I spoke with her for about an hour, and she asked me to come back on Monday, November 23, after my morning class and meet with a few others. By the time I left that meeting, I had an internship and had about a dozen projects with 3 top projects.

Spring 2016

I have registered for my Spring classes. I am taking 15 hours.  I have 4 classes Mondays & Wednesday, Principles of Accounting I, Principles of Macroeconomics, American History I, and Music Appreciation.

I only have 1 class on Tuesday and Thursday and it is American Literature.

On Friday,  I have 3 classes, Principles of Macroeconomics, American History I, and Music Appreciation.

Xander is happy I don't have any classes after 3.

I also just received an internship, that they are having me start working on some of the projects now. I am going to be working on marketing projects for the Whitson-Hester School of Nursing at Tennessee Technological University.  I am already working on some projects and looking forward to working on some of the others that we have discussed me working on.

Reason I haven't blogged

Well to be honest, between school, family and work, I have been a bit busy. I kind of forgot about posting to this blog. Let see, Spring of 2015 I started back to school. I am working on a dual degree of Marketing and Business Information Technology. I took 16 credit hours in the Spring, 6 in the Summer and 16 in the Fall. Last February we moved to another house to rent since ours had not sold so we were not going to be able to purchase the one we were leasing to purchase. So now we are in a bigger house that has some issues but I love it. The house has personality which, our house in Alabama had but it was modeled like everyone else's. The house we were in when we first moved here, was about 100 square feet bigger than our Alabama house but it felt smaller, it was a plain ranch style brick house. 

We moved to the new place back in February during the ice/snow weeks. We are in a space that compared to our home in Alabama, this place is that size and half again (more or less). We are loving it (well except David and Xander hate all the leaves they have to rack). The house has a lot of trees, that if we owned the house, several would come down quickly and I could be talked into replacing them with something else.
