Today is the beginning of the spring semester at UF. The Business Law course won’t start until tomorrow so I took advantage of working on my Exploring Geology and Business Computing courses. They both seem to be interesting subjects. The only problem I have is the written assignments in Geology. The arthritis in my hands makes it difficult to write for periods of time. I completed the first three assignments on my computer and transferred the first one paper. Now my right hand is done for the day. It will be a hot wax bath night tonight.
Here we are at the beginning of a new year. What will be my resolution this year? Not to allow myself to get too stressed over school. Last semester I was so stressed over Finance I made myself physically ill. I ran a fever over 100 for more than three weeks and had high blood pressure. I even had to cut out caffeine to try and bring it down. Now that the semester is over both my blood pressure and temperature are back to normal. Today my blood pressure was 111 over 71 and my pulse was 69. So I will try to find ways throughout the year to help me cope with the stress of school.
