This is the hectic part of the semester. Although the weather is warming up, the projects are building up. I have literally so many big things to do that it's doubtful if I can make all of my obligations. Here's a sample of what I have to for this week.
Sociology: First Draft of a 10 page paper
Environmental Law: Write a policy brief on climate change, as well as a presentation on a 56 page case
Speech: a well thought out paper and Persuasive speech
Money and Banking: study to make up for the last two tests
Macroeconomics: Continue to study
City of Atlanta: Just random projects, but it takes a cool 20 minutes to get there
Public Service Institute: Real Estate Development project
Summer Program: Complete the summary of my research outline for the 8 week program
Urban Studies Club: Try to have 3 events in the next WEEK so that we aren't put on probation next year
STUDYING FOR THE GRE AND LSAT (Which I haven't done AT ALL!!!!!!!!!)
Ok, this is just the academic tip, and doesn't account for all the personal and professional things that I would like to do. I need to work out, I need to get to know more of my poli sci teachers for recommendations, I have so many damn things to do it's literally the monkey on my back. I have slacked off for most of semester, and now everything has come to a head. PRIVATEPLAN recommended to me that I take a step back, and stop so hard on myself. Live day by day. It's difficult. Sometimes all I want to do is take a long walk through the park, and relax. Look at the trees, take a deep breath, and become totally aware of everything outside of me. Just sit and be. That idea to me would be HEAVEN.
Mood: Actually, good
Listening: "Black and Gold" by Sam Sparro
