Finished Finally...

I got my final grade for my medical transcription course this weekend. I passed it with a 93%. Yeah me!! Now I'm just waiting to receive my diploma from M-TEC. Still not having an overwhelming desire to do this as a job or career. I am just ecstatic to finally be done with this whole course.

Wishing that I had done an accounting course or maybe a web design course. I did do a website design for a local business last year and enjoyed it. As a matter of fact I enjoyed it way more than I did the transcription course! I don't know what I was thinking. Now to figure out what I am going to do.

New blog look...

I used this tutorial and made the new background that you see. It was done using PSE 5. This was super easy to do. My concern is the length of time that it takes to load. I know how I hate when a page takes forever to load completely and don't want to subject any of those who stop by to a slow loading page..

Can all who check out my ramblings here please let me know if it takes a long time to load the background. If takes too long I may end up removing it. Thanks!!

Twilight the Movie...

I finally broke down and watch this movie today. I didn't buy the DVD since it is currently on On Demand on Comcast Cable. It is just too expensive so we typically don't go to the theaters to see movies either.

I read the entire Twilight series last summer and enjoyed all of them. However, the movie was another thing entirely. I realize that a movie cannot include everything that is written in a book but I hate that they change things to the extent that they do.

They changed way too many things for my happiness. Yes it was based on the book but they did change a lot of things, too many for me. I know better than to watch movies based on books that I have actually read.

Almost finished...

I am working on my final test for the medical transcription course I've been taking. It has taken me 20 months to get to this point and it is none too soon. This course has made me feel absolutely crazy so I am very glad to be getting to the end. The courses is a really good one. You really do get a good transcription education even though it is all done at home.

The bad thing is that I'm not so sure that I want to do this as a job after spending the last 20 months studying it. I know hubby is ready to kill me every time he thinks about what we spent on the course and now I don't want to do anything with it. He thinks that I will enjoy it once I'm not trying to study and pass test, etc. I'm not so sure of that. Guess we will have to wait and see how I do on my final test.

I told hubby that after I finish my course I am going to start studying to get my motorcycle permit. I started reading the handbook so I could take the test and then decided to put that a…

Not much to say...

I have had absolutely nothing to talk about lately. I have been sick for 3 weeks now and think I'm finally starting to get over it. It is no fun feeling like you are coughing up a lung every time you cough.

I'm still working on my Medical Transcription course and I'm almost to the end. Thank goodness! I am so past ready to be done with this course. Still doing my martial arts classes and my tai chi class. I've enjoyed my tai chi class very much. This Sword Form is very similar to the one we are doing in class. I am finding this to be a very relaxing activity. We will be doing our test on this form in a couple of weeks and then we will start a new form.

Doing lots of reading lately and my house really shows it too. Want to see what I've been reading you can it out here: Goodreads. I've read 20 books already this year. I'm currently reading Stroke of Midnight. I started reading Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series last year and know I ha…
