Oook, this weeks blog is late.. I was traveling. I drive to Atlanta to celebrate my silver star award at my sororities national convention. I am having a grand time and am glad that I have the opportunity to come. I have had the opportunity to meet and mingle with sorority sisters from all over the country and some international sisters. I will be here until Thursday which means that I will miss my first week of class number two. I know missing classes at this level is probably not a good thing but I had already planned this opportunity. I do have some thoughts about balance though. Being a student at the doctoral level means that I will have to sacrifice some of the simple luxuries that I am used to, but where is my balance? That is a question that I will have to search for answers for. I also need to set my study schedule so that I can get used to this work load. I do have good news. I managed to receive an A for my process writing course. I almost received all my points (I was 10 points shy)
