It's been a while.

I know, I know. But I have a good excuse, and its called School.

School and work dominate my life. Mostly school though.

BUT even though I have a crapload of papers and homework to do for the remaining 4 weeks of the semester (it's gone so fast!) I'm not as stressed out as I probably should be. Don't get me wrong, I am a little stressed, but I can't help but feel excited about this semester coming to a close and my LAST semester starting in January. Remember how excited I was when I wrote this post? It hasn't worn off a bit!! I'm surprised I haven't started counting down the days. It's the thought that I'm almost done that is getting me through this ridiculously busy semester. 18 credits is way too much with a 30 hour work week on top, and I would never recommend it to anyone. UNLESS it means you get to graduate!

What I've done so far this semester:

7 Italian Renaissance "rush-write" responses
5 Italian Renaissance one-page papers
1 seven-page Northern Renaissance paper
1 five-page Northern Renaissance midterm paper
1 exhibition design
1 exhibition critique
4 Spanish tests
2 Spanish papers
1 Spanish presentation
3 two-page American Art reading responses
1 American Art midterm
2 Humanities of Asia tests
AND a partridge in a pear tree.

I have a lot left, but its less than what I've already done, so I think I'm going to live. (Wardies, this is why I haven't been very social! My sincerest apologies.)

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I'm grateful for all this crazy work so that I can be done with my undergrad in April. And I'm thankful for an understanding husband who doesn't get upset at the mountain of dishes in the sink and the laundry-covered couch because he understands how busy I am and is right there with me!
