End of Semester Updated List

I am posting another list up here to help me keep everything straight. My good friend Makita pointed out to me that on my previous list some of the days and dates did not correlate. Just to complicate things, some of the dates for the finals have been changed and a quiz has been added to my list. What a mess. I am keeping the things that I have already completed on the list because I want to feel like I have accomplished something. So, my updated list is as follows:

1. Colloquium synopsis due Wed. 4/8 (not done, no way in hell...)- done!!!
2. Agricultural Law exam taken on Thurs. 4/9
3. Pesticides paper due Fri. 4/10 - completed (it sucked, but it's done)
4. Pesticides mini-exam taken on Fri. 4/10 (no time to study for it - bombed it)
5. File the too many credits appeal Mon. 4/13 (delayed - financial aid office said it may not be necessary to file)
6. Meet with Soils professor to go over data for presentation and paper on Tues. 10:30 (done...I now have a 2cm stack of SAS printout that I have to analyze, make conclusions from, make tables and charts, get into a PowerPoint to present on Thur. morning at 10:00am...Heaven help me)
7. Another Colloquium synopsis due Wed. 4/15 (no way in hell..)- done!!!
8. Plant Herbicides take-home quiz due Wed. 4/15 - completed on 4/13!!!
9. Soils presentation on Thurs. 4/16 - done!
10. Pesticides exam on Fri. 4/17 - done!
11. Plant Herbicides paper due on Fri. 4/17 by 5:00 pm - done!
12. Soils paper due on Tues. 4/21 - done!
13. Agricultural Law final on Tues. 4/21, 10:40-11:25 - done!
14. Plant Herbicides final on Wed. 4/22, 8:00 - 9:30 - done!!
15. Pesticides comprehensive final on Mon. 4/27, 12:50-2:50 - done!!!
16. Soils comprehensive final on Tues. 4/28, 10:00-12:00 - done!!!!

I do not know yet whether I will have an assistantship for the rest of my time in this program. I don't even have the time to deal with it.

Life is great when you can have the time to breathe.

Hi Makita,

Thank you for looking at my blog from time to time. I hope my lists aren't too boring. I was just reading this post over and thinking that maybe I should have titled it 'Heaven and Hell'.

I am very eager for the semester to be over. This has been my most difficult one since I've been in the program.

Getting there...

Joyce said...

Almost done. After this semester the classes will be done. All that will remain are internships!

makita said...

And an exam or two. But you can do it. Great news on the classes being over though. That will greatly improve the quality of your life.

makita said...

Wanna have lunch on Tuesday after your exam?

Joyce said...

Yes, definitely! The final is up near the center of campus. Will you be able to wait for lunch until I get back to F. Hall around 12:30?

makita said...

Sure, give me call when you're ready.

makita said...

It's noon, which means it's over. Congratulations on making it through another semester!

Thank you, Makita, for your encouragement and for a great lunch!!!
