My First University Course - Handled!

Today I submitted my final essay in 240. Last Friday was the 3-hour Registrar-office-scheduled exam, and everything else is done. Classes - done. I'd say we have this one pretty much handled.

The exam was long, and I used each and every minute. As I was leaving the exam room, M. asked me how it went.

"My hand is sore.", I said in a very mono-tone voice.

"That's a sign that you've written a good exam!", she exclaimed. "Oh, and I'll see you on the 14th.!"

...Oh yah, the 14th. English 354 - An Introduction to Poetry. At the time of the exam in 240, I was thinking to myself, "What was I THINKING???!!"

I spent all of today, and most of the last couple days, working on my essay due today at 4:30. Today was nuts. Admittedly, I rushed it. I shouldn't have. I know it's not up to par, but it's in, and I likely won't fail.

There it is. My first University course - handled.

I looked back on a couple posts I wrote just before beginning this course, and I can't, today, think of any reason why I was so pumped.

I needed a drink.

So I went for one tonight... two, actually.

I'm home now, and ready for bed.

I'll check in tomorrow.

Turtle, over and out.

Well, it sounds as though you've had a gruelling couple of weeks in finishing up this initial course.

I wouldn't worry about the next one. The first one simply taught you to retrain yourself to pay attention, meet intellectual deadlines and study. You'll become a career student in no time, breezing through each subsequent course more than the last. And poetry, well, what a motivating subject. Good luck!

feel like that after back to an office job...

Congrats on finishing up...

And why were you doing all of this again?

By the way, I'm busier than ever with a few gigs going at once...

New schedule and all... not so fond of it yet, but I'll adjust.
