This is the face of ...

someone, who moments earlier, completed her final with an 88%. In retrospect, I think I should look happier, considering I’ve never been so elated to be a B+ student in my life. I’ll blame Craig for sneaking up on me and taking this last night when I was comatose and void of all emotion. No, not like NORMAL.



Where does that leave me? Well, I’ve finished everything except for the research paper and PowerPoint. It’s great that I’ve made it through that much, not so great that there is still that much left to do. When Cate and Betsy offered to, ahem, assist with my paper, my first reaction was I can’t let the INTERNET do my homework. Now I am wishing I didn’t have morals, because I can’t think of anything I’d enjoy more than having the INTERNET completing my research paper right now.

If you are interested in seeing if I survive, check back tonight. I promise to post a celebratory message.

On a different note, I am sorry for all of the school-related talk. Often I get bloggers-block and can’t think of anything to write about. For some odd reason, lately I’ve been overflowing with blog fodder. I can’t wait to put a big check mark next to SCHOOL, so I can get back to my regularly scheduled writing.

Becky said...

Has anyone ever told you that you look a lot like Angela Kinsey, from The Office? At least in that picture you do.

Congrats on your 88%! That's great, especially with everything you had going on. I bet it's a relief to have that over with.

Kara said...

Your hair is GORGEOUS. Do you just sit around all day admiring it? I would! :-)

Congrats on being almost done!!

Annje said...

Congrats and good luck finishing up. I am finishing a Ph.D. so I have been "there" soooo many semesters somehow the adrenaline gets you through it every time. I have no classes now, just the big diss--lucky me.
oh, and I am guessing you haven't even been tempted to cheat.

Call Me Cate said...

You're totally rocking your way through the workload. And still keeping us entertained! (Or, maybe, giving yourself some much-needed breaks?)

Good luck finishing up today. Tomorrow, you can wake up and it will all be behind you. I'll check in then for your Snoopy dance.

Heather said...

If it makes you feel any better I thoroughly enjoy your school related blogs!! I start back up full time in 4 weeks after a 5 year hiatus and to see you survive school with your work schedule and being a mom and wife gives me hope that I will be able to pull through just fine :)

Annje - I'd LOVE to chat about PhD school sometime. I've gone back and forth about that being my next step forever!

Kara - Are you kidding me? I hate my hair; always have. This is actually a new look, called I can't care enough to do more than wash it. Amazingly enough I think it's at it's best, LOL!

Everyone else - hugs for the comments, I'll try to address you all later :)

Brilliant job on the final. I'm sure you must be relieved its over and especially with everything you have on your plate.

C. Beth said...

Ooh, I like your shirt!!!!! :)

Looking forward to that celebratory post.

Lyndsay said...

Beth, LOL! One of my lovely coworkers walked into my office yesteday and cocked her head and started at me. I said, WHAT? She said, "Oh, I am just trying to decide if I like your shirt or not."

Oh, okay, because I cared enough to ask ... LOL

Back to typing ... on page 10 (of 15) when your email dinged!

Jenners said...

Yay for you! I couldn't even imagine having kids and going to school. I just wouldn't have the brainpower! Keep on trucking ... you're almost there!

And may I say you have lovely hair and such nice blue eyes! Great photo...even if you were comatose!
