feelin kinda: : tired tired
Singing along with:: i dont have time for music. =(

Just one more month of the current semester... I can't wait for it to be over.

Of all the years I have been taking college classes, I have never felt so completely occupied with schoolwork as I have this semester... Yes, part of it could be because I am taking 5 classes at once when in the past I have taken 4 or less... but I don't think it's the amount of classes, it's the amount of work PER CLASS.

In the past, most of my classes have been the kind of classes where you go and listen to a lecture, and then you have tests over the material you have covered. Aside from the occassional essay you don't really have any out-of-class work that needs to be done other than reviewing for tests.

This semester, only 1 out of my 5 classes is like that. The other four classes involve TONS of reading and writing these long analytical essays. I feel like I am constantly behind and struggling to keep up. When the weekend comes, all I want to do is relax and do anything but homework, but I don't really have time to because I have so much work that I need to do to try to stay caught up in my classes.

Never before have I been the person to look for easy alternatives to actually doing the work... but this semester I have had no other option. I have been looking up e-notes and sparknotes and bookrags notes for just about everything we have gone over because I simply do not have the time to read and analyze everything that is put in front of me, and have time to write deep analytical essays.

I currently am juggling 4 essays that are all due in the next couple of weeks. I am halfway done with the rough drafts or 3 of them, the fourth I haven't even started yet... two are 5 page essay, one is a 7 page essay, and the fourth one I am not even sure about yet because we haven't been given the formal assignment yet.

I need a break so badly... and the fact that I only get one day off for Thanksgiving kinda bums me out.. but at the least the semester is almost over... just a couple of more weeks of classes... then finals... then I will have a full month off before the next semester begins. I plan to sleep a lot.
