G-4: Graduation Minus 4 Days

BAM. Finished my thesis! WHhoooo!

I wish I would have had about an extra week to finalize it, but I probably would have procrastinated just the same.

I didn’t have the energy this morning to wake up and work on my final thesis chapter, so I ended up sleeping until 11:00.  But seeing as I went to bed at 03:00, it wasn’t quite oversleeping. 

What is rather lame about going to school here is that during finals week, those of us who have jobs through the school still have to go to our jobs.  So we have to juggle work, school, and thesis.  Real life learning and such.  At 12:00 I went to my job at reception, and quickly got all my tasks done so that I could spend the rest of the hour quickly finishing my thesis.

It was finally completed today at 13:30, and I bound it and turned it in to my three professors.  I didn’t have much time to feel relieved since immediately afterwards I had to sit at the finals tables once again.  At 15:00 there was no more food to give away and I left.  After once again breaking into LDV to return the stuff, I went home.

Only to find an email in my inbox from my professor saying that the title page and the contents page needed reformatting in order to be to standards.  I scurried around both campuses grabbing the faulty thesis, printing the new pages, binding it once again, and then running to give it back to the professor.  I finally got home around 18:30 and now I am allowed to just chill.  I’ve been watching episodes of IQ; just relishing the fact that I have no more thesis to write.

G-6: Graduation Minus 6 Days

So I have this habit of not wanting to sleep when I have things to be doing.  But not sleeping doesn’t increase my productivity really, well when it’s past 2 or so.  So I just end up depriving myself of sleep, when it probably would have been better for me just to go to bed at 23:00 and try to work in the morning.

Needless to say, I haven’t finished my thesis yet.  I have just a bit more to write, and it is the simplest part, but my brain is just done.  It doesn’t want to deal with this anymore.  Not really an option I’m afraid.  I woke up this morning at around 09:00, tried to write and then cram for my Global History final at 13:30.  I’m a little disappoint in myself.  All year I’d been really good about being prepared for my history class.  Doing all the readings, paying attention.  But the past two weeks or so I completely failed to do anything.  And to my disappointment, the final wasn’t as comprehensive as a would have hoped for.  The majority of the questions and essay topics were on the more recent material, so I’m not to happy with how I think I did.  However, it’s over and all I can do is wait for the grade to be posted in a week.

My muscles still are really sore from climbing the Monte Boglia on Saturday, but my toes seem to have healed and become normal shaped.

My parents came to the residence this morning, and dropped off a couple of things.  Although 2 out of 3 are rather useless:  (1) My mother bought the wrong prescription contact lenses for me so either I have to walk blindly across the stage at graduation or with glasses; (2) The inflatable mattress I needed for my visiting-Una doesn’t have its electric pump so I don’t know what to do; (3) Graduation shoes!

I know the shoes are rather ridiculous, but I really like them.  What do you think? ] I must learn to walk in them before graduation though, so I’m not that girl who trips and spectacularly falls when getting her diploma.
