Life as i know it

What's up blogheads? Anyway, i just felt the urge to blog again today (more like to rant/ vent). School started, i'm TA'ing for 2 classes (6 different sections of about 30 students each). Not too bad, huh? Well the down side is, i have to grade their papers as well. It's so amazing the kind of excuses these students give for not turning in things on time. The excuses are just so ridiculous and some (pls excuse my language) are just stupid! I overslept, i couldn't understand what was posted, and so many others. As in every time i log on to my school email i see at least 3 email from the kids. I finally deactivated my facebook account. I couldn't bring myself to doing it, so i told the mister to change the password, and deactivate it. That way, i won't know the passie and then i cannot reactivate it, 'cos it'll ask for my password, and even if i try to change the passie, it will ask me to supply my old passie. I know the mister will never give me the passie even if i'm crying blood. I told him to just give me the password when i'm on vacay and i need to check facebook.

So what led to this drastic decision? I realized, even though it's sad to say, that i was slowly but surely getting addicted to Facebook and it was becoming a real problem for me. Peep this, this past weekend, i planned to study and read some articles, but every time i went online the first thing i'd do was log on to FB. Long story short, i only got through to reading a few articles all weekend, and i did no studying. It was so bad to the extent that i now had to wake up in the middle of the night to get work done. I hate being controlled by anything.

What's going on my people, ehn? The number of folks i know getting engaged (4) within this past month. I mean, there's serious engagement fever in the air, and these are my people as in my very close friends. Enough aso ebi to buy. I am so haaaaaaaaaapy for them, infact happy is an understatement. I tell you, it's so funny 'cos every time i hear the news, mister is with me. I didn't know that the guy was already getting uncomfortable (lol). I assured him that i wasn't ready too, so even if he proposed now, it would take us abt 2 to 3 yrs before we finally got married. So we might as well chill.

Anyway, gotta grade 70 papers now, so i'll update again as soon as i have the time or whenever anything new comes up. Remain blessed, people.

P.S. Excuse the typos, no time to proofread

Grade papers, yeck!!! My mom used to make us grade her papers! I'm glad you are not the type to pressure your man into marriage. Matter of fact, that is more of a turn on for him, but he won't say that. Take your time, and explore your options...

How are you doing dearie? I totally understand your reasons for giving up facebook - it's a real time stealer! I gave it up for Lent and that was when I knew I was really getting addicted. I had withdrawal symptoms!
