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.
