My gender class has been taking up most of my time, attention, and energy as of late. The nice thing is that it ends tomorrow at 2pm, at the very latest. This excites me immensely. The class ending means that I will have time to do other things. I would love to hang out with friends, start to work out more, practice my dances in preparation for Global Fest. And I may just have time to do that... may...
I finally got my executorship for mum's estate. Now... this is both happy and sad news. Happy because finally I can start to finish her unfinished business and close her life. This is also sad because of the constant work and demands this will mean of me. I can't begin to describe how much seeing creditors on her case kills me. Seeing property taxes 2 years outstanding makes me wonder where I'm going to come up with $4000-someodd dollars. Figuring out how to sell an overpriced house that needs so much work still and not getting our money back for it also really puts me in the dumps. I just want to settle everything enough to clear her name. None of us children, or the family, want any money. I think we came into this situation knowing there wouldn't be money to be had after all was said and done.
Her 7th month anniversary came and went. My essay was due that day, I had class, I had work, and I thought of her. I wasn't nearly as sad... and maybe this is a sign of acceptance. Death was so frightening to me before... Now, it's a fact of life, like so many other things.
I will be applying for a scholarship after my class is done. An essay is involved. The last time I applied for a scholarship, I didn't win, per se, but my essay was published in a book for being a top-10 runner up. I remember how happy and proud mum was of me. Thinking of things like that makes me want to conquer the world for her. Well... in a non evilicious way. But I'll continue to make her proud.
Anyway, I just thought I would do a quick update to let everyone know I'm still alive. I've just been a slave to gender. Dare I say I liked the ride while it lasted? I learned so many incredible things in that class... and I had a wonderful teacher who shared her very last semester at Mount Royal with my class. Bless her in her new life with her fiancee in the marintimes... Seeing them together, so happy and so in love, makes my heart swell.
But alas, I digress. Right. Time to study.
...Until next time!
