Easily distracted or how I can never resist a google challenge  
Bro is right about one thing, trying to get any work done at home can be near impossible at times. At least he is only home on weekends! I try to keep regular study hours, or as regular as I can make them, but despite my best intentions (and we all know where those lead...), I keep getting sucked into doing other things, usually some internet errands for my parents. Today, about half an hour before I wanted to start studying, my mother asked me to prepare a health insurance claim. Ever since it become possible to submit those via internet, it has somehow become my task to scan all the relevant documentation first and then work through the online questionnaire to submit the whole thing. After that, and this one is sort of my fault, my father told me how he couldn't find out the sampling rate at which ADR (astra digital radio) is being broadcast. I couldn't believe it and promptly did some googling of my own just to prove that you could very well find out ;-) By the time I had done all that and had located some books my father's physiotherapist was interested in borrowing, it was already lunchtime. It's been going like that for the last two weeks. Between my parents having a hundred and one errand they need run and me being so easy to distract, it's a miracle I ever get any work done.

At least I got a 77 on that multiple choice quiz and made some solid study progress this afternoon. Probably because I have the house to myself for a change and only the internet around as a distraction.

It's good to hear you're doing well Fran. You don't ever seem to stop studying though!! :D Since I've met you you've been doing one course or another. You really are a very smart person indeed! :)

Keep up the good (if hard) work!

Thanks :-) Usually I'm not taking a full course load on account of my health, hence it takes me longer to work me way towards any degree. Currently I'm working on my master's degree, which should take me 'till 2012 or 2013, depending on how things go. After that, who knows what I'll end up doing.

Concerned
This is your former beta (and present if/when you need my help), Diane (dianem1999@yahoo.com). Was concerned when you hadn't updated since October, so was glad to see you posting again. You are quite the busy bee--schoolwork and helping parents. Hope you can find time to just have some fun, such a writing fan fiction. I believe you still have some unfinished stories.

Re: Concerned
Thanks for your concern and kind comment(s). I have indeed some old and new fanfic projects brewing, they are just slow-going right now due to me being busy with other stuff. Will write you an email some day soon :-)
