Hell Week Day 1

I'm warning you off the bat... this is going to be a long... wordy... often times whiny and repetitive series of blog posts. They will undoubtedly be super boring and frequent. That being said... i don't care if you read them or not... If i am going to stay sane through the next 8 hours or so... I'm going to need to be able to write in an unprofessional, messy, judge-free manner. You've been warned.

 Episode 1: In which I find Research and Daunting List
Often times college students complain about finals week... and how they have no time eat, sleep, socialize or do anything that remotely resembles fun. Not me. Once finals week starts, I'm happy... because I can finally see the light at the end of this long, curvy, nasty tunnel of doom that is the end of the semester. The week I dread... is the week right before finals week... the last week of classes; "Hell Week." Why do I hate this week so much? As an English major... ALL of my papers are due during Hell Week, which means not only am I cramming to get all the knowledge I need for my actual finals to stick in my head... but I'm also trying to puke out dozens and dozens of papers into some sort of coherent thought. Right now... I am so disgusted by the amount of work that i have been (blatantly) putting off, that I have decided to blog about my progress so I don't feel like such a worthless human being tomorrow.

Ok I will start off this Hell week blog with my list of things that need to be accomplished by friday:

1.  15 page Capstone paper: Compare and Contrast differences between Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber with the classic Grimm's fairy tale Bluebeard.
2. Rehearse With Becca before Juries Performance on Wednesday at 12.
3. Finish memorizing music for Juries performance on Wednesday at 12.
4. 10 page paper for Criticism due Friday by midnight.
5. Pick topic for 10 page Crit paper due Friday by Midnight.
6. Xdis Evaluation paper
7. observe a  group in XDIS on Tuesday so I can write my XDIS evaluation paper
8. Finish 10 page XDIS paper: Holocausts effect on Literature
9. Jared's birthday dinner Tuesday night.

Wouldn't it be nice if they gave us like 3 days off of school before finals week to be able to accomplish all of these things and not still have to worry about attending all of my classes... in which we are doing nothing but watching movies in at the moment anyway. STRUGGLE!

Now for the plot:

I walked into the library at 1:00pm. It is now 1:40 (approx).
I have printed off four more sources for my Capstone paper and found the article that I need to use for my analysis and critique for the crit paper. Next step... leave this loud lower level of the library and find a nice quiet nook upstairs that is close to a window and surrounded by bookshelves, where I will attempt to read said articles and hopefully the words will just pop into my brain and demand to be typed out...

I'll let you know how that goes.
