update on my next post

Hello FAKE fans! Don't give up on me yet. I'm still alive and breathing and walking around. I've just had a really nuts schedule for the last few weeks. Jeez, and I thought I was busy before I started doing demanding online courses!

I got a Brazilian Blowout back in February and I love my hair! It's supposed to last up to ten weeks, as long as I don't wash my hair every day, which I don't. It was an arm and a leg, though. $300 with cut and tip!  That's more than I usually spend on my hair in a year. I don't really think I can do this regularly because I can't see spending that kind of money on my hair every two and a half months.  besides, if I wait long enough, I bet the Brazilian Blowout formula will eventually come to drugstores, once its inventor has made enough money selling it to select hairdressers. Only two shops in my city currently offer this service.

I've been doing lots of studying-- more than I thought I would have to. I don't have much experience with online courses. I didn't think it would be this intensive. The problem is that I want to do well (and I have been!), so I'm willing to work an extra two or three hours even on small assignments just to get nine out of ten instead of eight. Or better yet, ten out of ten, instead of nine!

Anyway, I'm planning to continue with the courses right through to the end of this calendar year. I have several more modules to complete, which means my posting is going to be slower in 2010 unless I manage to become a lean, mean studying machine. The good news is that that actually might happen. Usually it takes a while to get used to something new and to find the short cuts.

I'm in a little hiatus right now between the first course and the next one, which starts in April. I got 98% on my final exam, by the way! My plan is to work on stories to post for you, my faithful and patient readers! Oh and I also have to do my, my husband's and my father's taxes. :(

I'm just about ready to post   chapter 7. I need to make a few more tweaks, then I'll put it up here on my LJ sometime tomorrow. I hope you'll come by to read it.
