Back to school.
That was my reaction last week on my first day. Yeah, I wanted more vacations but it was no biggie. I was seeing all my friends again, everything was cool.
I am assigned as the first person to present in a class... A presentation?? Not so bad. Unless, it is the first version of my final essay. And it's due August 27. Yes, that's next Thursday. Yes, I have only a week to find a topic, read like crazy, and write something decent unless I want to fail.
So, all week I've been reading like crazy. Books, journal articles, anthologies, etc. I've made copies of over 10 books. I didn't go out of the house all weekend.
My essay is due tomorrow. A 7 page advance of my essay. I have written four. I am blogging. I still have to read some 50 pages for my essay. And other 50 pages for my other classes. I have to write 3 more pages. I have to go to class.
I don't think I will be getting much sleep tonight.
Oh yeah, and my complete and finished essay is due September 10th. Yes, I will have handed in my FINAL essay during the first month. My grade is going to be determined by then, but I still have to attend class and do the readings.
That's what back to school means to me....
