This may be the longest I have gone without posting since this blog began back in April!
Classes started this week (ahh!) and I am to that point of stress where you begin to involuntarily twitch. But today's Friday, so I can take a half step back and look back on the week as an "experience" rather than the hectic hell it actually felt like.
I left New Hampshire at 3am on Tuesday morning, my attempt to avoid the massive labor day traffic filing back into Massachusetts. It took me three hours to drive back to school and I arrived just in time to hop on the bus and get to work.
The way my schedule is set up I have classes and if I'm not in class I'm working in the department, making copies, filing, and doing other oddball (low skill) jobs. This works really well for me because I can get 20 hours of work in with a 20 credit hour week.
Anyway, back to the story. Tuesday I ran around going to classes and by my 3pm class I was falling asleep in the back row. No what a professor wants to see. This week I've had
- Victorian Monstrosities
- Foundations of Education
- Afro American Lit
- Sociological Theory
I've also read The Sign of Four (Sherlock Holmes) and four essays for classes and written three pages. Ahh!! Next week will be so much easier. Stay tuned for my nervous breakdown!
