how is everyone doing? this is the end of the semester and it's kicking my ass!!
I took a final in political science research yesterday. It was way harder than I expected. I know I lost at least 5 points on one question because I had no clue how to answer it, very disturbing. I am hoping for an 85. But I should still get an A in the class.
my other classes are k i l l i n g me. I'm taking this AA History class that has huge workload, but it's my favorite class by far. The final project is due tomorrow and I am like, half done with it. Then we have a final exam. I have to bust butt to get caught up so I can finish strong.. I was sick for the week prior to Thanksgiving, which is why I'm struggling now. single mom + full time classes + illness + finals week = exhaustion.
I still think I can get 3 a's though. I will be really bummed out if I don't do well. all this work has to pay off, right? anyone else nearly exhausted? I had fantasies of just dropping dead in history class this morning. I felt so dizzy and weak I thought that I might pass out. took a nap this afternoon and let my girl watch 2 movies in a row with a plethora of snacks. I just lied on the couch with earplugs in, dozing for 3 hours. I feel great right now, for the first time in weeks. and here I am spending precious time reading on mothering..
(I rented a handful of dvds for her to watch so I could study, nice, huh?) well I found out she Loves scooby doo. I have never seen anyone get so into Scooby doo before. You know how scooby laughs like "hee hee hee hee hee hee?" my daughter squeals with laughter over that every. single. time.
oh, to be 3 and watch scooby instead of writing an annotated bibliography on the black power movement. (though I have to say, Angela Davis's work on the prison industrial complex have Really Amazed me. I think I have a new cause!)
good luck in all your finals, moms.
