I want to have a lamp with a magic genie who can weed me out of this mess.
Simply put, this is perhaps the worst cramming I will put myself into. I only have seven days to read literally thousands of pages of materials from various sources for book reviews, entries for annotated bibliographies, and sensible answers to the take-home exams. Take note, reading may be easier but understanding what you’re reading is where the dilemma starts. One week. Seven days. After that, you’re expected to have results. I used to joke about sem-long requirements done the night before the submission, but it’s utter hell if you are to submit the requirements all at once. Whose fault? Clue, I tried filing my dropping forms but I was made to stay. I should be prepared for a failed mark, when I tried simply having a “Dropped” mark in my graduate school transcript. Of course I can’t help but blame the professor because I’m human, I’m insane, and I am too proud. I’m also a bag of crap.
On top of the very tall order of two class requirements, I still have :
a newsletter which is slated for release next week
a special project that is due incidentally this week
distant learning courses to undergo to check what’s worthy to be used in a larger scale training program for my colleagues (ASAP)
a correspondence course which involves passport and citizenship issues
regular workload, duh
And selfishly speaking, my Plan 30 project is still alive. My social life is moving and despite all these stressors, I can’t give it up. My summer itinerary. My personal errands (bills, bank accounts, etc.)
Oh hell, it will be better tomorrow. If it won’t, then I will just kill the genie.
