You know, I've been in school (again) since Fall Term 2003, with only a few breaks. And I'm tired. Tired of staying up late trying to finish an assignment, tired of having to make sure I get everything done, tired of sitting in front of this computer screen typing endless papers...just plain tired. At this point, though, I've come too far to stop, so onward I go.
This term is particularly bad because I'm taking 4 classes. I know, right? 4 graduate level classes. At the same time. 2 is considered 'normal', 3 a full load. And I'm taking 4. The good news is that I'll only need 2 more after this term. The bad news is I probably won't get to graduate until December 2010 anyhow, 'cause that's just how UW-M rolls.
My original goal (jokingly, I might add), was to finish my own academic career before the Kid started her PSEO classes. But, no. I'll be finishing as she's starting. In some ways, I feel bad because I've been going to school since she was in the 4th grade (she's a 10th grader now).
So, that's what I've been doing since August. And that's why I probably won't get my 101 Things in 1001 Days list even close to finished before time runs out in June. Ah, but the journey has been life-changing too, so there's that.
