It’s been a busy week, despite the Monday holiday that gave me an extra day off from school! I didn’t feel like I had a shortened week. However, as I reflect on it now on Friday, it was a very productive week that included my first mid-term yesterday! Fun fun!
The literature mid-term was originally supposed to be given on Tuesday, but last week we had a “rain day”– a severe rain storm caused crazy flooding and the parking lots at school turned into a lake. There was flooding everywhere and the school closed for the day. So that caused some adjustments to be made to syllabi and everything was moved up. Instead of having a long weekend to study for the exam, I really only had two days, because the professor didn’t give us the format of the exam until the last class prior. We have had quizzes every class on the short stories we’ve been reading, so I wasn’t that nervous and it really wasn’t bad. I left the classroom feeling good about the exam–I hope my grade reflects that!
I also have a history paper due at the beginning of November and I am moving along nicely with my research. I hope to start writing it early next week. My goal is to have it done by October 30th–I want to enjoy Halloween evening with my boys and not stress about a big school project. That reminds me, I need to get moving on their costumes. Crap.
All in all, I’ve had a decent week. I was stressed at the start of it, but it’s improved. Life is always busy, but it’s becoming our new normal. Once I get this paper done, I feel like I’ll be able to breath a bit…for a few weeks anyway, until finals in December.
