My seminar prof just showed up in my office and asked me to TA for him next semester because he needs someone who can actually write to mark essays.

 

I've got this reputation amongst the small group of people that know me in my department as the girl who gets shit done quickly and way in advance and for some reason really likes to read and write papers.

Wasn't so long ago you were scared of being a TA. Now you're being requested. Congrats, Jordan. Your hard work and excellent skills are paying off.

I have 3 days to write a 2.5 thousand word assignment, an oral viva exam worth 20% of the module on the 1st of December, a 1.5 hour written exam on the 18th, and a 5,000 word assignment on the representative-ness of the jury due sometime in December. I'd want to check the date alright..

 

Plus I need to get my ass in gear with choosing a thesis topic, AND try and figure out what to do with myself after I finish this! 

 

:runaround:

 

But I get to shadow one of the country's best solicitors next semester :happy:

Applying to USF for the last time - if I don't make it in this time I'm going to accept defeat and try elsewhere

Just got back from the last of the 2 exams I had to do, and I'm so frustrated right now. First one I wasn't able to study as much as I wanted to, and the exam was hard so it didn't go well, as I was expecting. But this one that I did today I was quite confident going into it and it went just terribly :(  I am really sad about it, I went full panic mode during it, as the time was up and I still had 3 pages left! The professor kept giving us more time but was always pressuring so I could not think straight, and even better those last ones were the questions I had studied the most for and I knew those things! But they require a lot of reasoning, so I could not do it.  :cry: I think I'm gonna flunk at everything. This really sucks.

My Dad is so close to graduating. His last day of class is December 6th, and the graduation ceremony is January 6th. He has consistently maintained perfect grades and perfect attendance for the past two years. He'll be graduating with honors. He's such a great father and person in general, and I could not be any more proud to call him my Dad.

 

In a little less than a month, it will make a year since my school shut down. It doesn't feel like it's been that long. I've spent that time working and occasionally doing artsy things that relate to what I was going to school for. It's frustrating because I have the urge to go back, but I want to save money first and wait until I find a school that's just right. I don't want to rush into anything. Still, I can't help but feel like a failure. I work close to home, so it's not uncommon that I'll run into people that I graduated high school with. A lot of them are going to college and making something of themselves. I'm standing behind a register and giving them change. I feel like an embarrassment to my family and every day, it's increasingly harder to find the motivation to even get out of bed.

 

I miss the projects and the grades and the pressure to do well. Definitely don't miss the students, but everything else is missed. Shame that my college has been turned into a Comcast building and that I have to see it at least a couple times a month.

Thanks Mar! You're right, I don't really know what I was afraid of anymore :happy:

Double post but I'm making the most beautiful chart of all of these things that are so disagreed upon and terms and concepts used interchangeably even though they technically have different meanings

 

Spoiler

 

It's so confusing but so interesting and I don't know how I'll ever defend

Had my last politics lecture this morning, just went over tips for the exam in January. Was also emotional because he's leaving this week and he was like "it was a pleasure teaching you, I'm going to miss it, so...bye, and good luck with your...lives." :lol:

I'm a bit nervous about the exam but he said that based on our essays (which we haven't actually gotten back yet) we shouldn't fail, so that was nice of him to say, haha.

THANK GOD I just surprised myself by being able to talk through my presentation fairly smoothly without directly reading all the time. Perhaps there is hope that I won't be completely screwed :D

I might have a dissertation idea :runaround: going to run it past a couple of lecturers this week! I'm just worried that it may be deemed too similar to the assignment I'm currently writing but sure we will see.

I don't know what it is, but after almost 4 years of presentations I STILL get nervous, when I have no reason to. Honestly, as stupid and ridiculous as it sounds, I think I'm just nervous about feeling nervous. :ermm: I feel fine until I get up there, and then I start to sweat and my mouth gets dry. I hate it, I just wish it would go away. I feel confident in what I'm presenting so why do I have to be so nervous? 

 

Only 2 weeks of classes left, so ready for this semester to be over. Currently have 80% and above in everything which I'm thrilled about, but I don't know if that'll last. :lol: I really hope it does, would be nice to make Dean's List this semester.
