It happened again yesterday. I went into my advisement center and the nice lady who was helping me referred to me as a nontraditional student. Why I think that I somehow fit in and it isn't THAT noticable that I am 20 years older than the entering freshment is beyond me. I know I look a little older, but come on....nontraditional?? Ouch.
I am suffering from a severe lack of weight watcher motivation. I have been so hung up with school that I haven't really hunkered down to get back into the swing of it. Of course, school is a little bit of an excuse because this summer I was struggling too. I have managed to maintain, which is good, but I am not getting any closer to goal. I had a dream a few nights back that I saw my cousin Holley for the first time in a long time and she was skinny. Holley, if that is what you mean by a "transformation" that doesn't involve plastic surgery. My hats off to you, GO GIRL GO!
By the way, the reason I went into the advisement center yesterday was to apply for graduation. Yep. You heard it here first, I am set to graduate in April 2008. Yes, that is exactly the 20 year anniversary of the end of my freshman year at BYU. Crazy. I went and looked at my transcript today and I think when it is about time for me to graduate I will post about my checkered past with BYU. I would love to give a speech at graduation, encouraging all nontraditional students to take heart in their abilities and never give up. Of course, once administration took one look at my low GPA from 1988, they would never consider me. It was bad, trust me.
I am fighting chronic fatigue at the moment and I think it may have something to do with not eating very well, in addition to the less than desirable amount of sleep I have been getting lately. I know when I stay on WW that I feel better and have more energy. I need to channel my frustration into motivation and get the heck on the ball.
Welcome to the mental meanderings of a nontraditional student.
