Is it me, or did summer just end? It is cold outside now.
I actually have the heat on, and it’s July?
I just went through a period of two huge homework assignments. The glum weather has even made my ambitiousness to aggressively research texts weak as all I want to do is sleep. The amount of reading I have done in the last three days is almost 450 pages from about 25 sources. Now, I have about a week to get this data into presentation format and then write two papers on these topics by the 15th of this month.
Fortunately, I have already started my drafts on the papers, and the presentation is a group one, so we will be gathering this weekend to delegate and organize. Based on experience our five member group should be able to have a finished format by then, and then another meeting to do a dress rehearsal before curtain time. This presentation will be a total of 25 percent of the overall course for each of us: half personal performance, and half group effort. (I’m bragging now…).
This is the part about my degree program that I dread most, these group presentations. I am so happy that I will need only three more courses that are upper level fourth year, and these are fairly light compared to the ones that I have just completed. I sort of saved the best for last; so to speak, not that these courses are easy, but only just in terms of extra curricular activities such as group work. I want my very last semester to be a mellow one.
I’ll be burning the candle at both ends this week.
