I think that I should have given up complaining for lent, but then, what would I write about? I’m getting so behind in school work simply because I just don’t care. Terrible attitude, I know. But seriously, as long as I graduate, I really don’t care about my grades. I could get C’s in all my classes and still be above a 3.0. So what’s to stress about? WELL…I am stressing. I feel like as soon as I get ahead in one class, I get behind in another, like I can’t catch up. Quizzes, oral exams, poems, papers, short stories, online quizzes, yada yada ya. I feel like I’m buried in papers and can only come out to breath when it’s time to eat.
This morning, I walked three miles at the gym. I didn’t read the latest gossip in Us, or People. Instead, I read 75 pages of text for a class. It was actually nice. I didn’t notice how much I had walked, and I got school work done. So, I burned over 300 calories reading :).
I also need to organize my notebook. That is my big plan for tonight (after class, of course). This way, I know what is in there, what I need to find and what I need to throw away. Organization is important to me, so I need to get organized to make it through this week.
Next week is Spring Break, and I am purposely not going ANYWHERE. I’ve never gone on a trip during Spring Break, and it didn’t seen necessary this semester either. I mean, I can save money, not get plastered, therefore remember my break, get wedding planning done, and laundry, and hang out with friends. I hope that it will be a relaxing time, and that I will get a lot done (and I’m not looking at school work one bit).
On another note, I went to the library last night. I had to return a book, and I checked a few out as well. February was missions month at church and I taught “facts” about Africa to the kids. I decided that I want to learn more about Africa. I took a course called “The Introduction to the African Experience” but I honestly didn’t get much out of it (that I can remember). But teaching these kids really got me interested. So, I’m starting with Angola. I got two books out last night on Angola, and I’ll let you know soon how it goes. Then, I will continue through the countries.
Also at the library, I checked out a movie called “Super Size Me”. Oh my goodness! Brent and I watched it together last night, and then this morning my mom and I watched it again. If you haven’t seen it, I advise you to see it. It really opens your eyes to the disgustingness of fast food. Parts of it are gross (he throws up, they show a gastric bypass surgery, etc).
