The End is Approaching!

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

It's that time once more, SparkFriends. The end of the school term is in sight and I'm buried somewhere under a pile of textbooks, case studies and partially completed homework assignments. The difference is this is THE LAST TERM. This also means that the pressure is *really* on.


I really appreciate that everyone updates their FriendFeed, because some days that is all I have time to check. It's been a great study break to see what everyone else is up to. Like good SparkFriends, many of you have been having fun for me (just as I asked you to do!).

For those of you that are wondering, I need YOU to have a LOT of FUN in order to offset the following:

Capstone Project: Due by this Saturday, presented on 7/24
Homework: This week, due 7/19. Next assignment due 8/2
Two presentations to make in class on 8/6
Take Home Final due two weeks after last class (roughly 8/20?)

I'll be taking time from work to wrap up some of this stuff (luckily it's a bit slow in the office; not sure how that happened!). Just getting that capstone finished will be a huge relief.

Enjoy the week ahead, SparkFriends - that's an order!

    Your brain must be fixing to explode! It will all be worth it. Did you ever see the demo where the professor fills the glass jar with large rocks then asks his class if the jar is full? When they say yes he adds sand, repeats his question and they their answer so he adds two cups of coffee? No matter how full our jar seems like we put more in it!

    So close to being done with school.... I'm sure it's hard to concentrate on papers and projects and requirements when you just want to be done, done, DONE! At least, my last semester was that way. :) Sending you motivation and all the energy I don't need right now (quarter-end went miraculously well this time, and I'm days ahead of usual on schedules and workpapers!).

    Not much going on this week for fun (it's the crunch time of quarter-end for us and Sean's in Boston, so I'm rattling about the house once I do get home at night)...

    ...but the weekend looks promising, with the Gilbert & Sullivan Very Light Opera Company performing The Mikado @ the Lake Harriet Bandshell on Saturday & Sunday. We're likely going on Saturday

    We also have a Twins game to go to for Sunday afternoon's enjoyment. Sean gets on a plane to somewhere else Sunday night, of course. :)

    Good luck to you over the next few weeks. You will do great! I am going to enjoy the rest of my summer, and I will be sure to do something fun in your honor over the next couple weeks. But before too long, you will be out having your own fun!

    Sounds like a rough few weeks, but you are one smart emoticon and you will do emoticon (what is WRONG with me?? I usually hate emoticons on SP!!)

    I will try to have a little bit of extra fun, just for you! Actually, when I got the email saying that you had a new blog, my first thought was "hey! She's not supposed to be blogging! That's fun and she's supposed to be doing homework".

    Better get to it! emoticon

    (You got THREE emoticons in one comment. you must be special, or somethin'!)
