Wow, two entries in one day - I guess cuz it's Friday.

I'm going back to school!

Yes, FINALLY.  I've said it in the past and there has always been something (mostly money) that has stopped me.  Well, now I got the loans, a grant, and everything in place.  I start on January 5, 2009 and am working on getting my BA in Business Administration with a focus in Finance and Accounting.  I know, fun huh?  I get to take classes like Statistical Analysis and Financial Management.  But it is an accelerated online program from a college based out of Los Angeles and I take one class that lasts one month.  I finish a four year degree in ten to twelve months because I already have my AS, so the general credits are already done.  Thank God, because it really cuts into that $30,600 I have to pay.  But I am very happy because not only will I get to do better at work with this degree, but I'll feel better about myself because I have always wanted to get a higher degree.  Hopefully this will lead to grad school; we will see. 

In other news, it's COLD!!!!  It was 25 below zero this morning in a city just north of us and is currently 3 degrees here.  Take that with strong winds.  It literally hurts, it's so cold.  I hate that.  I go tearing across the parking lot at work, get in the lobby, and literally feel like I am thawing out.

eBay is not allowing me to sell my Louis Vuitton bag.  Apparently they have had issues with too many people selling fake ones, so those of us who want to sell our real ones get punished as well.  It sucks.  I could get anywhere from $400-$1000 for that thing.  I bought it for $1400 and have only used it once.  Stupid impulse buy.  I really need money right now too.  That's just aggravating.

I feel: giddygiddy

That's great that you'll be going back to school. The cold is evil. Whoever said Hell was hot never had to deal with unnaturally cold weather.

Thanks! I know, the cold, it's just horrible. We have a winter emergency today and you can only go outside for 10 minutes because of the windchill factor. It causes frostbite if you stay out longer. My poor dogs' paws freeze when they go outside to pee. This weather isn't fit for humans!

No it isn't. Now if only I were part penguin. My hands are already getting all screwed up like a mini Freddy attacked me with his finger knives which makes typing all kinds of fun.

Oh, that sucks! I get all shaky from the cold. I could barely type at work this morning. Too bad I love this city this much. Otherwise I would have just moved somewhere warmer.

I'm used to natural weather since I grew up in CA so getting dragged to CO really sucks since the weather is horrible. I don't like a minus sign in front of a number or single numbers for temperatures because it just isn't natural. I saw a crazy chick yesterday in a skirt with her bare legs showing.

congrats... higher education is evil good. Well, it's both, really... but mostly: this is awesome! CONGRATS!

I love your good/evil comparison on higher education. I'm so scared of the debt I am incurring. People who have parents that pay for it all are a lot luckier than they know.
Btw, I love your Christmasy icon. I still haven't watched VM. I really need to.

Thanks! Oh, and it's colder now. Seven below with a windchill of almost thirty below. We can't go outside longer than ten minutes because of the danger of frostbite. I let my dogs out to pee and their paws freeze!
