finals

Productive Day!

I had a very productive day!

Woke up smiling and being distracted from studying. Eventually got to study, and then took a final for a class that I hope to pull a B in.

After the final I had a few hours before work, so I decided to go for a jog, and combine that with the errand I needed to get done! I ended up walking because my workout pants are too big for me now and fall when I run it seems. I ended up going for about 3 1/2 miles in around 45 minutes.

I couldn’t get the errand done, but I did find out more information about it, I guess.

I made it to work on time even though I fell asleep less than an hour before I should have been there!

Now I get to go to bed because I’m working again in less than 6 hours. (I should mention that I’ve been home for only one hour.)

Tomorrow I intend to be just as much if not more productive!

Summer Courses

I just signed up for my summer courses. If I can get into the class that I’m on the waitlist for I’ll be taking 11 units.

Let’s hope that I can, because I don’t want to have to take more English electives at Sac State if I can take them at a community college.

I looked up my grade in my Grammar class today, and it seems that I didn’t understand the big assignment as well as I thought, because I got a 15/20 on it, and since it was late I really only got 13. Because of this, the best that I can hope for in this class is a B.

I’m not looking forward to the final in half an hour.

I am looking forward to watching I’m Not There tonight though!

Lots of things!

I might just be crazy!

Those are the classes that I am currently enrolled in for the fall semester. There are LOTS more that I would love to take, but I do have to have time for homework for these classes, and you know, actual WORK. With some luck though, I’ll be able to figure out a pretty regular work schedule on campus so that I don’t have to worry about a changing schedule. I just remembered that I should have more freedom from money next semester, so I won’t even need too many hours working, which is pretty awesome!

It’s been hot in Sacramento lately. Not exactly hot enough that it justifies leaving a fan on all day when only the cats are home, yet my roommate does it. The bathroom stays pretty cool, and they hang out in there anyway, why leave the fan on in your room if there is no one to benefit from it? If I didn’t already move so much I’d be really tempted to find my own place and just make sure I work more next semester.

I’ve really enjoyed dancing the past several weeks, and can’t wait to learn more. If anyone reading this knows more than me (and I know there are at least two of you) please share with me what you know! Watching some videos of friends completely intimidates me, but also excites me and motivates me to see how far I can go!

I had a pretty productive day today.

After completing an “exercise in time management” provided by my English teacher (it’s funny, time management isn’t in the course description or the syllabus) I went to the grocery store and got some gas. I don’t actually remember the last time that I got gas, but I’l try to pay attention to the next time that I do. I love living so close to everything that I do!

While I was at the grocery store I bought the items pictured below.

To avoid eating most of the box in just a few sittings, I bought the snack bags and divided it up!

I checked the box, and a serving is supposed to be only 55 little fishies, which those bags are definitely not. There are supposedly 32-ish servings in a box, I divided it into 18 bags. (Please note the earrings on the table, it was totally intense work while watching the season finale of 24.)

I have some pictures of a car that I see a lot that amuse me, but I think I’ve made this entry long enough, and I might forget all the things I think of tomorrow to write about, so I will save it until then!

And I’ve finished!

All of my papers and anything else that I have to turn in to any class has officially been turned in. I have four finals next week, and some of them I’m not currently so prepared for, but it’s only one a day, which I can totally handle. Especially since the first one is definitely the easiest, so I have more time to focus on the others!

Now that I’ll have a little more time in my schedule, I’m really looking forward to taking care of some things that have been a little neglected over the past few weeks. During study breaks and then definitely after I’m finished around noon on Thursday I look forward to getting at least a few, but hopefully all of the following things done:

Cleaning my room.
Organizing my room as I clean.
Officially signing up for summer classes.
Figuring out applying to the Jamba Juice on campus.
Dancing a LOT more.
Trying some new recipes in exchange for some awesome dancing lessons.
Sleeping in without feeling guilty.
Testing out my mom’s pool to make sure it’s good for the year.
Reading for pleasure!
Writing for pleasure on a more in depth level than this blog usually gets.
Working and making some cash!
Riding my bike.
Lots more that I can’t even think of right now.

Look forward to much more interesting updates!

Nearing the End

This week has felt pretty crazy. Last weekend and the beginning of this week I seemed to have a kind of block on writing the about 30 pages that were due over 8 papers this week. I think a big part of that came from being forced to work on one piece all day Monday when I prefer to be able to work in short bursts.

Today I’m down to 5 papers that I have to turn in tomorrow. One of which is so done that it’s got a fork sticking out of it, but another I have yet to begin. The other three I’ve made decent progress on and now I just need to get my brother over here for some truly brotherly (read brutal) editing and I’ll be just about good to go.

I’ve got so much I could say about my process and how I intend to use the rest of my day, but this is just intended to be a short break so I can trick myself into working on one paper for two of those short bursts back to back!

I will have much more to say tomorrow afternoon and this weekend once my paper writing week is over!

Positive Outlook

In going through the papers that I’ve received back from my Professor with comments and unofficial grades, I realized that the two I’ve gotten back from him are actually marked as a B- and B/C. He’s a pretty harsh grader, and I would be totally happy with a C+ in the class, especially since I don’t feel like I’ve put as much into these papers as I should have. It looks like I’m on the right path though, since I’ll be doing a bit more revision to those papers before turning them in, and I’ve done a decent amount of revision on the other two I have for that class.

I’ve still got two more papers for different classes, which are a little more involved and I need to get back to working on them now.

And yes, you read that right. I have 6 papers due before 5:00PM on Friday.
I’ve already turned in 3 papers this week.

Countdown!

Finals are totally killing me, but I think I’m starting to get a little bit of a rhythm. Before my classes start tomorrow I should have everything done that’s got a hard deadline of Thursday. Then I get to stay up all night to finish the gajillion pages I’ve got to turn in on Friday!

On a more fun note, my hair looks kinda nice when I just take a shower and finger-comb it while writing essays. But apparently my chin doesn’t really like finals because I’m a tad broken out!

Not a too terrible lot to go!
