Semester winding up/down

Monday, December 15th, 2008

I’m not sure I’ll have a chance to write again before jumping on a plane, so I wanted to let y’all know specifics.

Sunday: Seminar prospectus due/submitted
Monday: Work 8-2; Study 2-5; Paleography Final 5-10

Tuesday: Work 8-12; Study 12-2; Present prospectus in Seminar 2-4; Present reading in Latin 4-6; Byzantine paper due; go rock out with Jenn and Chad
Wednesday: Work 8-2; Help organize medieval library 2-5; Maybe see if anyone wants to get eats; Pack

Thursday: Work 8-12; Book it home to shower, finish packing, do last minute stuff, and call a cab 12-3; fly 5-6:30; enjoy the hospitality of the Frantals

Friday: Girly day with Jess; night out with friends

Saturday: Last minute shopping; make some Cyren shipments

Sunday: Head to Madison to visit with Chad, Hann, and Phil; Settle in at Thomas’

That’s the dealio. I’m scrambling to finish up schoolwork, and I’m hoping I will actually finish my Byzantine paper in time (so I don’t have to work on it Wed-Thur and turn it in a little late). There is a lot of non-school related stuff I want to get organized before break, but I just don’t have the time.

It’s late and I have a long week ahead of me and I’m not entirely prepared.

I serendipitously found a video of my Byzantine prof regarding his excavations in Turkey.

Feelin’ Good

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

I am officially going to be a Graduate Assistant for a World History class at Baruch. Now there is no need to worry about not wanting to take that Financial Aid position. This position is half the hours but pays almost as much, *and* it has health benefits.

I feel a bit guilty that I skipped Latin today. I was not at all prepared and had the interview. I technically could have made it to class, but since I didn’t get any translating done this weekend, there wasn’t much point. Everyone has those days of weakness. This is one. I was too jazzed about the GA position to bum myself out with the embarrassment of going to class unprepared. But I hope to get some work done tonight to make up for it.

School is winding up. I feel as though I only have a normal amount of work to do rather than an excessive amount. However, I have things going on Fridays and Saturdays until I head home. Fun things, but things nonetheless. I need to work on my time manangement, while you all know is poor.
