Wow. It's been one hell of a week, and guess what? It's only Tuesday at 8:02 PM as I type this.
So far this week, I've been on-call, had 5 classes, had a 2 hour meeting, and gotten about 12 hours of sleep (if that). Looking forward to the week ahead, I have 8 more classes, 2 tests (5 if you count the online ones), 5 office hours, an internship meeting, a floor meeting (tonight), student convocation, family weekend, and a concert to attend. Whew. I do not know what I'd do without my calendar. Probably scream, cry, punch a pillow, and scream some more. And more than likely, swear like a sailor (not that I don't do that anyway).
But you think that sounds busy? Oh, dear readers, you have no idea. Starting tomorrow and ending November 1, I have something to do every day (apart from three sporadic days during which I'm sure something will come up). These things include tests, quizzes, meetings, office hours, a handful of Open Houses/Discovery Days, Family Weekend, and oodles more. Including a luncheon with the university president.
What gets me through this craziness? Besides copious amounts of caffeine of course, seeing my wonderful friends in classes and outside of class, a nice little thing called 2 paychecks every two weeks, and the fact I'm getting off of campus for a while on Thursday night. (I won tickets to a jazz show, and my dad and I are going to it together. I'm so excited.)
I also have a bulletin board due near the end of next month, but I'm already planning that one out. My bulletin board theme ideas for the coming months are (this is how I stay awake during business class)...
- Creepy Creatures and Ghastly Ghouls
- Who Do You Share a Birthday With? [Celebrity birthdays and pics]
- AFI's 100 Years, 100 Quotes [The top movie quotes from various flicks]
- Alice in Wonderland
- Rolling Stone Magazine's Top 100 Albums of All Time [Complete with album art]
- Unique Spring Break Trips
- Piecing it all Together [Asking residents what their favorite part of the school year was... finally an excuse to use my puzzle piece border. Get it? Piecing it together? Lame, yes; but should be a fun interactive board]
But that's the calm before the storm that is the month of October. Whew.
