Five Weeks to Go

Hello, blog. I know I haven’t updated you in awhile, but I just wanted to let you know that I’m alive and sort of well (even if I almost die every time I leave my apartment to walk outside from allergies) and I’ve been living in a mountain of homework, but I’m hoping to find a light in the tunnel. Or you know, a tunnel so I can get out of this mountain.

Just wanted to let you know that today I made a calendar of all the crap I have to do for everything before the end of the semester. I know I should be “cherishing” the time I have left with ds106 Section 3 and my apartment, but frankly, I don’t want to. I want it to be late spring/early summer now. If it could actually be May 8 tomorrow, that would be even better. Partly, because I would have a diploma and partly because I will have a huge mound of birthday gifts to open, but most of all because I would have a great amount of free time. And there is the slight possibility that I’d never have to step inside a school again. Of course, I may end up getting a Masters at some point, but I’m just going to believe I’ll never have to be a student again until the end of this blog entry, so I can at least remain partly sane and excited to never go to school again.

Since I really just want everything to end right now and I have no motivation to get anything done, I’ve made a list of things that I might eventually do once I never have to wake up and do homework again to get me through these next few weeks in my boring, untidy, over humid apartment.

Things I will do with my free time once I graduate/5-6 weeks are up:
-Sleep. I know it’s the old college kid standby, but seriously, I have not gotten like any sleep this semester and it’s really ticking me off. I keep telling people that once I graduate, I’m sleeping for a week straight and only waking up to eat and take showers. It’s funny how they laugh and don’t really believe me…
-My Seven Deadly Sins Barbies. Now since I will have all the time in the world, I will get out my Barbie trunks and make the five I need–Sloth, Gluttony, Pride, Lust, and Greed. I had an idea for two of them yesterday. Should be pretty cool. I’m more excited for this than writing that long paper for Rochantasy…
-Finishing my Rubix cube pillow/purse. Two springs ago, I took a fabric dying and painting class and made 12 colors on the color wheel. Long story short, I took 6 of these and cut them into 3×3 squares and started sewing them onto black fabric to make a cube. I have maybe 2.5 sides done (they’re all hand sewn). And I want to finish them. I have no idea if it’s going to be a pillow or a purse, but it definitely won’t be one of those tacky pillow-pet things for sure.
-Clean all the crap off of my computer. I gave it a good DVD back up and purge yesterday, but I eventually want to remove all of my school related Word Documents that I will hopefully never need again off of my computer. And you know, since I’m an English major, I have what can only be correctly referred to scientifically as a metric crap ton.
-Buy the three books from the Scott Pilgrim series that I’m missing. (Hey, I have to have something on this list that is easily accomplished.) 🙂
-Maybe attempt to do an assignment from each category for fun, but this is a very little maybe and it might be squashed by sunblock and strawberry plants.
-Buy two new strawberry plants. I had two last summer and it was the best thing in the world to go out back and pick fresh berries off of them. For anyone who doesn’t know, I LOVE strawberries and will give someone a lot of money and nominate them for a Nobel Prize if they figure out a way that prevents strawberries from molding and becoming overripe in transit.
-Buy, listen, and love Lady Gaga’s new album. It’s out May 23, 2011. I cannot wait to hear “Government Hooker” in full/headphones/cd quality.

So yeah. Today begins Week T Minus 5 overall and Week T Minus 4 of classes. So keep in mind, if you’re procrastinating and reading this blog entry, we only have 8 more days of Tuesday/Thursday classes. So get yo stuff done, yo. 🙂
