If I thought LAST week was hell....omg.....this past week has been killer!!! By Wednesday, I was very nearly at the end of my rope, and ready to pack it all in. Thankfully, I was able to make some good contacts with 4th year students who got me calmed down, and explained that they had been through the same excruciating work load, and choking stress. I spent most of Wednesday in tears, and a good part of Thursday too...but the message I have clung to is that second semester will be better, and that I just need to duck and run to get through the end of this semester. Everyone has promised me that I will not fail out.
I have nothing quilty to share - - I have been writing essays. I have two to hand in this week, one the week after, and for the week of the 23rd? Two class presentations and a taped interview, transcript, and analysis. December...bah...just six essays within the first ten days of the month.
