Last year, I noticed that my dedication to the classwork started to wane in the summer months, mostly because I am an active person who likes the outdoors. Naturally, I thought that I would get back into the class and be more focused once the days grew darker and the weather more frigid. That is where I am right now. I have decided that I just need to do it and get it over with, otherwise I never will. After all, what I really want to get to is the colored stone course and can't do both at the same time.
So as I hunker down with my diamonds again, I vow to be finished by, lets say, the end of February. That means a lot of reading, reviewing, and studying are coming my way. That's okay, I've got a fireplace I can work in front of.
