On the sixteenth of December, I’m thinking. I’m thinking why was I born during such a busy time. A busy time that is finals and Christmas. I am writing a paper and wrapping presents in between for goodness sake.
One of my friends said I’m “too nice”. And not in a good way… Girl, a little kindness never killed nobody! I’m a Sagittarius, could you blame me? 😉
On the fifteenth day of December I took my hardest exam. Last night I was in the library late and studied until 5 am. But that final was so hard😬But what’s done is done and I am extremely sleepy so to dreamland I go. I pray I miraculously did fine on this final and will do well on my upcoming ones.
On the fourteenth day of December, I am studying hard for my most difficult exam. Please keep me in your thoughts.
On the thirteenth day of December, I am finally happy.
For one, I got my laptop back!!!
And then I met with my professors for my teammates feedback. It wasn’t as bad as I expected. Although there were negative comments, there were also some heartwarming comments that made me feel good about the way my parents raised me. My compliments included how I was patient, respectful of all members, and did well despite having a harsh member on the team etc. And my professors had nothing bad to say, they said they admire my professionalism and my presentations in the class have been excellent 🙂
Right after this I had a luncheon I was invited to, a “student leader appreciation luncheon”. I ate a lot of great food, got a gift, and reunited with some of my other student leader friends.
And so, things are finally looking up for me 🙂 Now I just have to do well on that final Friday for the class I’m retaking 😬
On the twelfth day of December and 8th day without a laptop, I feel myself get even more worried about finals. I decided to clean my apartment. I don’t know why, but cleaning always makes me feel better 🙂 Anyone else feel that way??
On the eleventh day of December I am still struggling with the cold, finals, and a disfunctioning laptop. I am also experiencing some anxiety as I found out that on Wednesday, I will be receiving feedback on what my peers/colleagues think about me😬 Yes; the bully will be rating me as well! The professor and TA will read everyone’s feedback out loud to me. Ugh talk about nerve wracking. In actual jobs, bosses just summarized and gave me constructive feedback.
I am very nervous about this. Any tips on receiving feedback (especially from a workplace bully) would be greatly appreciated 🙂 Please think of me Wednesday ❤️
On the tenth day of December, life without a laptop continues and I began writing letters to my friends. I love handwritten letters. The emotion you get when you write them and the emotion someone feels when they read it is indescribable.
On the ninth day of December the snow we have been waiting for here has hit! I went to Target to buy some hot chocolate to keep me warm and cozy with the cold and finals these next few days, but I came back with lots of other treats!
On the 8th day of December, I am still without a laptop and plan on camping in the library all weekend to do papers (although there is a snow storm coming to the East Coast).
Even with the stresses of finals week, I love to help out during my birthday/Christmas season. Today I helped wrap presents for a community center. What do you think?? 😊
On the Seventh Day of December, I had to cancel any weekend plans I had If you have noticed my posts being late, it is because my laptop hasn’t been working since Monday!! So I’ve been having to go to the library everyday to do my homework and I’ve been writing these posts on my phone.
I don’t mind writing posts on my phone, the hard part is my homework. The library closes and I am not done with my homework by the time it closes!! So today, I finally took my laptop to IT help. Four different specialists looked at it and it’s with them overnight.
So I need to spend my weekend catching up on these projects and paper I was behind on while my laptop wasn’t working. You think a dysfunctional laptop is no big deal, but for a student…it is!! My whole grad school career and research is on there. Oy.
