Define: ...what?

My teacher actually wrote "LOL!" on my paper.

Mind blown.

Define: Hopeless

I don't think I've ever felt this hopeless about school.

Greek is so much harder than I thought it would be. I really had no idea what I was getting myself into. This, combined with a growing desire to not get a degree, is causing a lot of stress and frustration.

Other than Greek my classes are fine. There was a point earlier this semester when I felt totally overwhelmed, but now I feel like I can handle it. Except for Greek.

I dread Mondays; I live for the weekends.

I can't finish the semester like this.

Presenting: Something I do when I'm bored

I'm starting a new project. Maybe this will launch me to instant fame and I will write a book.

Or draw a book.

T minus 8 minutes til bed...

I am getting ahead on some of the weekly articles we have to do for one of my classes. We turn one in tomorrow (well, I guess it's today now...), and I've got the next two weeks done already. And I've got my biology article done for next week. If only these were the big projects instead of the busy work...

I think I am finally getting the hang of Mondays. I just have to keep myself busy during the 12:00-2:00 am shift, and I'm alright. Last week I didn't come in with homework, and I almost didn't make it. Maybe by next Monday I'll be done with my articles for the semester! That would be really exciting.

I wish it would stop being cold. I'm ready for summer already.

Define: Oops...

While I was working at the Helpdesk today, someone called from the Fieldhouse and said, "Can you connect me to the Holton Health Center?!"

I wasn't sure why they called the Helpdesk for that; personally, I probably would have called the switchboard.

In any case, I wasn't about to deny them, so I said, "Yep, let me look up the extension...okay, I'll transfer you."

And I hit the "Transfer" button.

Only to discover .5 seconds later that it was actually the "End Call" button.

Define: Unfair

Why do teachers assign group projects? They know the workload is going to be unfair, right? They were students once, don't they remember?

I got stuck with putting together the powerpoint and bibliography for our presentation tomorrow, and I'm scared. Allison and I did what we were supposed to, but no one else did. One kid hasn't even been to any of our group meetings. No one has heard anything from him about it. And I am NOT staying up until 2 in the morning waiting for people to e-mail me their slides. I told everyone to have it to me today by 3:30. I have other things to do, and it's not fair for me to have to wait around for their stuff. I'm afraid that this is going to cause a problem in the morning if someone did send me their stuff at 3 am, but is that really my responsibility? I gave them a deadline. Our class is at 7:45, the library won't even be open yet for me to combine the slides before class.

I'm even more scared about the written part; I'm not sure if anyone besides Allison and I will even do it at this point.

And naturally we have to present first.

Oh goodness...

I don't know how I am going to make it through Mondays for the rest of the semester. I'm pretty concerned about making it through the next hour, actually. I try to sleep between my 4-8 shift and this one, but my body just won't have it, so by the time I get out of here I am a zombie. And I have a 7:45 am class.


At least I'm not super behind on homework right now.
And I am knitting a cool hat. Well, it will theoretically be cool. It's a bit trickier than I thought it would be. But I don't think it'll be too bad... I'm gonna wear it either way.

Someone from the Help Desk had extra hard drive, and I am excited to say that I am writing this from my laptop!
