Ah, life can be so hectic, but I am SO excited because I finished writing the first four pages of my senior paper before 11:00 PM the night before it was due. In case you were wondering, this was a HUGE accomplishment since I didnt start writing it unil the night before it was due (procrastination is the only way to survive the honors system in high school...and in college from what I've been told). Oh and while you're feeling excited for me, you can feel bad too, because now that I'm done with that, I still have at least 4 more pages to go. While the 'whole enchilada' isn't due until March 17, I have a feeling that I'll put everything off until the 16th rolls around (because that's just how I do things) :)
On another note, I would really appreciate prayer because I am still sick despite using my 'fool-proof plan' (gallons and gallons of water and overdosage on vitamin c) I've been sick for over a week. All I have to say is "I've had it!"
As for everything else going on, Graduation is looming in the near future and I just want to snatch it up and forget the next four months! Personally senioritis kicked in about the time that we were done with our junior year.

Yah, well I used to comment every once in a while... way back when you still posted! And then you didn't post for a month so I stopped checking on a regular basis. If you post it, I will read it =)

That whole procrastination thing, it may work in high school, but I would really NOT advocate it for college life. One of the main problems with college is that you are assigned a massive amount of reading (yes, I know, even more than high school!) and unfortunately, that stuff does not come together in one evening. Basically, ever since I started college, I've always had some form of homework with me at all times that I could pull out and work on. Whether it be a book or flashcards or notes or whatever. Yes, I know, I am an overachiever and rather paranoid, but it works! =)

As for Poppin' Fresh and her little "Study Study Study" malarkey...

Baloney!!!

I used to study for college tests by skipping class until tests and then reading the blue margin notes in the textbook while walking in from the parking lot. Graduated second in my department. Yeah, I used to be a slacker... Then I got married.

Lol...thanks Melina. I'm sorry for not posting for over a month--I know, I know...You are right. As for the procrastination thing, It really depends on who I talk to. And we already knew you were an over acheiver, you didn't have to tell us

Don't follow my brothers example. If you do you'll get two terms from a degree and then drop out and not even follow the same subject manner of your first degree...

Yeah, but you'll have SO much fun!
