My finals are coming up, and in my life’s typical fashion, I’m having the craziest week.
I just found out this week that all 4 of my finals are going to be next week. Keep in mind, this is two weeks before finals are actually supposed to be held. The professor’s are taking over a week of valuable study time for no reason other than to stress me the fuck out, obviously.
Today & Saturday will be spent working on study guides, reading way too many chapters and articles, and writing main points to a final paper.
Sunday will be spent driving 5 hours to Austin, studying the entire way, and then rewarding myself by seeing Jeff Mangum perform Neutral Milk Hotel songs. (this has not hit me yet, at all)
Monday morning will be spent checking out very early from the hotel we booked. This was supposed to be a weekend relaxation trip to clear my head before finals so we bought a swanky hotel room in the downtown area, but naturally that plan was squashed. The reason we’re checking out early is because my first final of the week is at 4:30pm, Monday afternoon. Morning in Austin, afternoon in hell. A quantitative research hell.
Tuesday will be spent turning in my final paper for Sociology of Mexican American People (that I hope to have done in an early fashion, but we know that won’t happen and I’ll probably stay up all night writing) and then I have another final exam at 1pm for Social Inequality.
Finally, Wednesday will be spent taking my last final exam for Gender in the Global Perspective at some point before midnight with my beloved friend, /youthanism.
And that’s how my hell week will lead into my sweet, sweet Summer. This is all happening so fast.
Read this in one of my textbooks. I had no idea “playahate” was one word.
