Boredom from being a successful student

Image by Earlham College via Flickr In two days, I will be graduating with my Bachelor of Arts in English with honors might I add. I feel very privileged to be graduating with such an honor, I don’t want Friday to come. I don’t because that will mean an end to my undergraduate career. I know,…

another hot day

Today at work, we celebrated Paul’s promotion to full professor. The only downside was that the party was outside on the patio which made the whole thing very excruciatingly hot. I thought I was going to die the whole thirty minutes we were out there. Michelle had to make an excuse to leave the party outside in…

Thus it begins….

Day 1I am in search of a MFA program–actually a low residency MFA program to attend next academic year. As per my advisor I should be shopping for programs this summer, taking the GRE in the fall and have everything finalized by December. Or so I’m told. Easier said than done. Today, I begin step…

Stalling

I should be doing my Journalism homework but instead I am surfing the web looking for new and different way to make a few bucks. When I say a few buck ….it’s literally. I mean for each thing I do I only get a few cents for each. Is it really worth it? I’m not…

The slacker is leaving the building……

I know I have been slacking as of recently but seriously…..I needed to. I have been going and going and going for so long I almost forgot how to relax. Sadly, it took some time for me to relax. Now that summer is coming to a close, I need to get reactivated. I need to…

literature and headaches

Image via Wikipedia I was working on my Irish Lit homework earlier today (I still have a few more things to do for it), I just had to take a break. Don’t get me wrong, I love the topics we are reading about. The rich culture and background of Ireland is very intriguing. I am…

disappointing party

I was a bit disappointed in the party we planned for TJ. It was more like a retirement party than an appreciation party. I think we should have just had the BBQ or party at someone’s house like Alisa’s or Cooksey’s place. We could have bought the meat and a few drinks. But Michelle didn’t…

Semester Over!

Finally! The Spring semester is over! I didn’t think it would ever end. I am so exhausted from this entire academic year. It began in the fall, carried over to the Spring. I’m sure my health issues from the beginning of Spring didn’t help matters any. Of course all the issues going on at home…

Overwhelmed!

I am extremely relieved that the semester is finally over. Yea! But on the down side of that is now I have to really focus on my writing. For some reason this scared the shit out of me. I think it’s because now….I’m not just pretending to be a writer, I am a writer. As…
