What's Goin On?

I went to Empire on Monday as you all know. We pretty much just discussed the school and finances. I will be covered by financial aid and I already have my $500 scholarship signed and ready to be deducted from expenses. With in the next week or two I have to go into my guidance councilor and apply for all the fun stuff, like grants and scholarships. Yay me. I don't have to fill out a FAFSA form because I'm getting financial aid through Empire. I am super excited. I just have to figure out if I would like to do the January class or March. I'm leaning closer to the January class right now. When I figure out that I go back in. Then after that I have to go in again for more financial stuff. Mom is happy because she doesn't have to pay a cent haha. Lucky for me, I dont have to pay a cent until 6 months after I graduate the program.

7 weeks until my birthday! Should I give you a list now or wait?

School is going pretty good. I'm getting all A's and one B. My GPA last I knew was 90 out of 100 but I'm pretty certain it's higher now considering my grades have only gone UP.

Still Don't Know

I got my results back from the blood test. There wasnt really much to worry about. My liver enzyme count was a little high, but really nothing to worry about at all. My fasting insuline levels were also a little high but again nothing to worry about. And by the way mom, I looked up what fasting insuline was and its the insuline levels your body has when you fast and I had to fast for that test. I don't have diabetes or nothing, I just have to watch the carbs I eat and record what I do eat and when for now. She'll keep an eye out on that as well.
But the thing that is stumping everyone the most is my LH hormone levels. LH is a hormone that dont usually rise until a women is going through menopause. So my doctor is unsure of where this is coming from. So more tests will be done to figure out where its coming from. My first test is on Monday.
I'm really grateful that this is all it is. It could be a lot worse but its not and it can be fixed.
Thats really about it, I dont have to keep you updated any more since it's nothing so serious it cant be corrected.

Senior Life So Far

I enjoy not having to carry around a 30 lb back pack. I just carry around a large purse. I only have two academics. Only one class I need a text book but even then its only the size of a jodi picoult novel =P.

My schedule is as follows:

Technology in America Block 1: This is a history class and it's actually not too bad. Its all about how we got tools from native American time all the way until now where technology is so advanced. Makes you think hard about how much me do have to make life easier. I love my teacher Ms. Bennett shes makes it fun and interesting.

Comic Traditions Block 2: This is an English class. Basically we just study the writers that make a piece funny, like Janet Evonovich =p. And we get a chance to write our only pah-larious pieces ourselves. This is my third year in a row having Mrs. Bordeau so I fell real comfortable in her class.

Digital Photography Block 3: Aunty steph would love this class! We learn EVERYTHING about cameras. To how they work, what each setting does and why the settings work, and all the way down to taking pictures ourselves and editing them on photo shop. =)This is my second favorite class.

Creativity and Design Block 4: This is my most favorite class and I think Aunty Kim would Love it. It's all crafts. We get to learn how to make jewelery. We get to do pottery, we will be doing clay crafts, weaving, different kind of homemade books, illuminated letters, stained glass ( which I'm nervous bout cuz we cut the glass ourselves) and a ton more. I can't wait to teach everyone the new crafts I learn. This is the first and only art class I have taken through out my whole high school career.

Unfortunately aunty robin I switched the class I thought you would've liked. It was digital design and imaging. basically web design and stuff. Photography was more my thing.

I get to leave campus to go to lunch which I have already taken advantage of. Today I went across the street ( woo! go me! big dare devil) to Laconia House of Pizza aka L-HOP and I got a sub. It was much yummier than cafe food!

Senior year will definitely be the most fun and easiest.
