What a Relief! -- DONE, DONE, DONE!!! (updated)


I just finished writing the second of two humongous papers that were due this term! The one I just finished was almost 20 pages long and counts for 60% of my grade!



Now, all I have are finals this week...one will be difficult...and then I'll have about three weeks off!!!



I hear my needles calling..."Oh Nathalie...where are you???" Hush now...three more days...



Oh, sorry, I had to have a moment of self-indulgence...

Two more classes left until I graduate!

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

Thanks! My degree with be in Social Sciences with a minor in History. The 20-page paper was for the required class that all history minors have to take before they graduate (Research and Methodology).

I plan on teaching after I'm done. I'll have a bit more schooling next Fall, but as long as I pass the state certification exams, I'll be good to go. I can complete the education program online and work while I finish the classes.

But to have that B.S. -- after almost 20 years...

Oh Congrats! I know exactly how you feel. I graduated last year, but now I'm in a post-grad Public Relations program. The work itself isn't hard, but there's just SO much of it. I have had a couple of weeks from hell, but it's coming to an end. I still have 3 finals and a paper on ethics to finish, but I can see the light! Thursday is the end (and my birthday!)
