Let's Get A Couple Things Straight...

Yes, I am slowly starting to get excited about graduating. The amount of work I have left is still a bit daunting, but I have reached that point that I always get to where I realize that it will all get done and life will go on. So the end is in sight and all will be well.

Having said that...

I am a hundred times more excited about what the Penguins are doing right now then I am about graduation. I almost can't even explain it. I just love this team! And, without going into too much detail so as to avoid any type of a jinx scenario, let's just say that I am the biggest fan the Dallas Stars have right now. I'll leave it at that and let you all (or is it y'all?) do the math on that one.

I Have No Class

Nothing but finals left to attend. What? What did you think I meant?

One Shining Moment

For just a second there I was actually getting excited about graduating. Then I remembered how much work I still have left. GUH! At this point I'm more excited about the new Speed Racer movie than I am anything school related.

That should change by the end of this week though.

At Least I'll Get One Good Grade This Semester

I got an A in my correspondence Lit class. If I took one thing away from that class, it is that good writing skills make a nice substitution for reading. Or in other words, sounding like you know what you're talking about is more important than actually knowing what you are talking about.

In any case, all eyes on the countdown. And no, I am still not getting excited about graduation, so don't ask.

Mission Accomplished - Phase 1

Well, I finally wrapped up my correspondence Lit course when I took the final down in San Marcos today. That only took a year...

Anyway, the point is that the class is over and done with and there is one less thing in the world that I need to get done in the next 3-4 weeks. Which is a step in the right direction.

The World Can Suck Sometimes

The fact that my four year-old daughter is in tears because I have to teach/warn her about strangers is lame at best. It just kills me that there are people out there that are willing to harm children. I'm all about forgiveness, but people who do bad stuff to kids should be killed as slowly and as painfully as possible.

So yeah, there's your uplifting thought for the day...

The San Marcos Death March

Ugh! I am so drained right now it's not even funny. April may truly prove to be the death of me before all is said and done. I have progressed well beyond "burnt out" and into currently unseen territory. There's just nothing in the tank right now. I can't even explain it.

People continue to ask me if I am getting excited about graduation, and I try to down play the whole thing, but I really am not excited at all. I can't wait for it to come, but I am so filled with dread that I find myself wondering sometimes if it will. Perfect example... my announcements arrived yesterday. After opening the box and checking them out you would think I would be excited/giddy/whatever, but I was not. The first thought that went through my head was "How bad would it suck to screw this up now?" That is how my mind is working right now. I just keep feeling like something is going to come along to keep me from graduating and ruin everything. I know it's crazy, but that is how my mind is working right now, and I am so drained that I'm not performing up to my best in my classes and that just feeds into it more.

Doom and gloom, doom and gloom! I know that a month (give or take a couple days) from now I'll look back and laugh at all this, but in the meantime I'm probably going to be pretty miserable to be around. It's weird, I'm not stressed or depressed or anything like that, I'm just spent. Maybe after graduation I'll pull a Bilbo and run away to the mountains to finish my book.

Good times...
