Well, at least I hope so. I’ve finally done it and have finished with school. I graduated yesterday, December 21st, and am now able to emerge from the foggy, educational abyss that I’ve been lost in lately. My final semester was one of the hardest in terms of workload for me and I hardly had time to do anything other than work, school, homework, repeat, since September. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in marketing so I need to get in gear and start doing regular posts – I have no excuses now.
I actually have an associate degree as well (paralegal) that I got several years ago, but always felt like I needed something more. I was able to find a school and a program that I believed was the right fit for me and three years later I’m done. Now that my weeknights and weekends will be free to watch tv (once all the shows I watch return in January), read the ever-growing stack of books, and get caught up on the blogs I follow, I’ll have to figure out what else to do with all the free time I’ll now have. One of the things I plan on doing is to start a regular posting schedule. Not sure what that will be yet but know that it’s something I really need to do. I’d love to hear what others do to keep to a regular schedule, since I haven’t been able to establish one for myself thus far.
So, here’s to no more pathetic blogging (hopefully). Hope everyone out there has a wonderful and happy holiday!
Yes that’s me lately – the pathetic blogger. I just looked at the last time I post something, October 6th, a month and a half ago :-(, and thought: I’ve got to get better at this. What’s my excuse to my lack of posts? I’m in my last semester of school and it’s been the hardest one so far in terms of work load. I work full-time and go to school every other weekend, leaving evenings and one weekend for homework. This semester has almost monopolized all my time when I’m not at work or school. An example of one weekend’s homework: read a book, write a paper on the book, describe a scene from the book that would make a good part of a movie and create a written storyboard, research a country, write a briefing paper on that country, create a personal strategic plan, write my section of a group paper from group member notes, after group paper has been formed in a rough draft, write the conclusion to the paper – and that is how it’s been this entire semester.
I enjoy my schoolwork but this semester does not leave a lot of free time. Thankfully I’ll be done in two weeks and will have more time than I know what to do with (maybe I can make a dent in my massive “to read pile”), no doubt wishing I was as busy again. So for those who follow my blog or who have stopped by to take a glance: I’m sorry for my pathetic output lately. I should be up and running on what I hope to establish as a regular schedule in few weeks. Until then, it’ll be back to working and doing homework and hoping I can make it through these next few weeks and a pathetic blogger no more.
