Today I started my first day of one of my most dreaded online courses for my MBA. Let me ask you if Quantitative Reasoning for Business sounds like fun to you, because it makes my stomach hurt just thinking about it? Come to think of it, my stomach has been hurting all day. I don't know if I caught a bug or ate something my body didn't like but I haven't felt well at all today.
I wanted to get a head start on the class so I read the chapters today and the week 1 notes. I was feeling good in the beginning and then I realized I had to complete several financial and economic formulas. That is when I started to freak out. Me and math have never gotten along with one another and now I am taking this class online because of the bed rest instead of taking it at the ground campus where I have an instructor to help me understand.
I have a feeling this is going to be a long 6 weeks to finish this accelerated course. I sent my brother an email to see if he can help me out. My brother Steven is a math wiz, but I wonder how much he understands business formulas. So far he hasn't responded but I hope I can get a little help rather than trying to teach myself out of the text books. Wish me luck! At least I have hours to devote to school while I am on bed rest when before I was working full time and going to school full time.
I talked to my sister Sara today. She is coming down to Phoenix next Wednesday to be here for the shower. She wants to stay at our house for a few nights and see how big I have grown since she saw me last. I feel like my belly can't stretch any further, but the truth is, I will probably get 2-3 times the size I am now. Can we say "Hello stretch marks"? I have none yet but I'm sure I will get some in due time.
