finest hour

'Ave A Banana

Winter Quarter is rapidly rolling to a close, and everything is coming due all at once along with it.

Today I submitted the term project for my Rhetoric class, a project that every single person in the class knew about from day one. Yet, somehow, I was the only person who actually did the flippin thing. The instructor called it off. I also had a Japanese written exam, which, to be honest, I don't think was my finest work.

Tomorrow I have my oral final for Japanese, about a ten-minute interview with my instructor. I have a pretty fair idea of what is expected, so I should be okay, but I'm still nervous about that. Then I have some heavy-duty work to do in Statistics, as we are finishing up a team project in there. I generally dislike team projects; I don't care for the idea of 20% of my final grade being dependent on someone else's work. But I think this will all come together.

At 2:30 tomorrow afternoon, I have a telephone interview with a local company about a temp-pool position that will be opening soon. I could use a job.

Thursday I have a quiz in Statistics and we have to present our paper for peer review. So I'll be working on that.

Friday I don't have Japanese class, having done my final, so I guess I don't have to go to school at all. I can spend the day studying for my Stats final.

Then the weekend, then the Stats final on Tuesday and the Rhetoric final on Wednesday and then that's it until April 1st. I'm already making a list of things I want to accomplish during that short break; finding a job is towards the top of the list.

I'm not panicking. It only looks like I'm panicking.
