I always have plans to post here more frequently than I have. Then life happens and I come up short on doing so. Midterms appeared to have stealthed their way in, leaving me completely unprepared. As a result of my unpreparedness, I lost too many hours of sleep and ate entirely too much junk food. I completely aced one of my midterms–I’m talking 100% aced, the other, not so much and I wasn’t able to deliver a “stellar” presentation for the last course. Thank God it’s just midterms so I have enough time to improve. So here’s this week, photogenically speaking:
My bestfriend, along with another classmate of ours, got together Tuesday night to do some cramming and help each complete a few assignments. We started around 7PM, I cooked ribs, she did the mac and beans, and our other classmate ate. LOL! We didn’t leave until 2AM. And once I got home, I didn’t go to bed until 3AM. Not to mention, Wednesday is my longest day of the week and it did not wait for me to catch up. -_-
Whenever I go to the library,
After staring at my computer screen for so long, and pretty much knowing all about the CRASH database and ANNs, I really just wanted to be outside, in the sun, with the rest of the student body that was done with their midterms. This is moment #487 where you realize another way graduate school for STEMS is soooo much different than undergraduate STEMs.
The week was long ya’ll. So when I say I NEEDED a getaway, believe me. I drove down to New Orleans and caught the Cirque Du Soleil show at the New Orleans Arena and had a blast. And I treated myself to the ultimate experience–floor seats, front row, with beer and nachos. I deserved that.
I’m not ready for Monday. I’m not ready for more work. I’m just not ready. There’s so much more sleep that needs to be had. Life is busy and I’m starting to feel a bit overwhelmed because I failed to use my time wisely like I’d done before. I need some motivation. I need to get out of this slump.
I need more beer and nachos.
