And not in the good way. I have been flat out running for the last few weeks. Not only did we have a housewarming party, we participated in a snow covered charity walk that didn’t go as well as we wanted it to. Because of the weather, half the members of our team were not able to walk…which really annoyed my Dad as it was in his honor that we were walking. However, if he had gotten sicker at the event, I would never forgive myself.
I have also had a presentation, 8 page paper (which turned out to be 7), 3-5 page paper (which is at 4 right now), 1 page response paper, lit review, children’s program, registering for my last semester of school and a few other things hanging over my head. People at work have been getting hurt (falling off of a stage, fake appendicitis, staph infection) and others have had family members die.
And I haven’t been able to spend any time on my costume 😦 I ran into Salvation Army today to pick up a “bomber jacket”, really just a red faux-leather jacket (for 6.99) and a Halloween store for a pilots hat and goggles and gun. I have my brown shoes, zip pants, and I might try to make a scarf out of an old t-shirt tomorrow quickly…not sure. I’m slightly annoyed that I’ve tossed out certain things and can’t find other things but whatever.
Paper is done, computer will be plugged in for school tomorrow, costume is mostly together. I didn’t get to make my Guinness cupcakes, but that is fine. I’ll make them on Saturday to eat with our pot roast.
I have one more day, one more day of summer class, that is until I am done for a month. These short semesters are hell on your body and mind. You still have the same amount of work, but half the time to do it in.
Relationships suffer, stress mounts. More beer than usual is drunk. Nothing like making a power point presentation while drinking.
Finally turned on our AC from the 80s. It gets the room coolish…just have to be creative with the fans.
Onto finishing my presentation!
I have no idea how I did last summer semester while still working 40 hours a week. Maybe that is why I got heartburn for the first time last year and lost 10 pounds. Neither was very fun and I hope to avoid it at all costs.
I am already halfway through the semester, though and that is a Good Thing. Just have a 10 page paper, vocabulary quiz, memo, action report, two presentations, and some readings to do. Maybe one of these days I’ll get some sleep…or at least solid sleep.
School started last week…only 14 more meetings till the end of the semester! So far, I have been extremely busy. I’m actually going to do all the reading for both classes this semester (last semester I didn’t, they didn’t seem to care) and I already have a paper due on Friday by 5 PM.
Add to that, my internship is already in its second week. Its been interesting. Sarah Jessica Parker was at there last week, Ken Burns was there the next day, the 54th Regiment was there today…not sure if anything else is going on but they have been busy!
And, I’m probably going to add more hours at work since a co-worker got a new job. Tours start again soon and I have to remember it so that I don’t feel like a total jackass on my first one. Maybe just a little bit of a jackass. They also want to use some of my photography for the website, partly because they don’t have to pay me for the photos. But it would look good on my resume, so I’ll probably do it.
Also!!! Seek the Peak registration opened up! I have to work on my sponsorship letters!
