let's just say...

I had absolutely no idea how much work History Honours was going to be. No idea.

Of course, it's now that the grinning Masters students choose to tell us that it was the worst year of their life.

Must! Look! On! The! Bright! Side!
- No exams.
- An honours room with own desk and swivelly chair, tea/coffee/fridge, photocopier and own key for all hours of the day.

Aaaand, that's about all I can manage.

You forgot frowning upon the lowly undergraduates.

Don't worry; you'll be brilliant.

Hey, Allie! :) It's been forever since I've commented here, let alone anywhere else. I have been meaning to post new images on my site for a few months now and write about what's going on with me, but I've been too busy to think about it. Hopefully within a week or so I'll start again or at least try. I have plenty of images stored/saved and lots that I need to edit and/or sort through, but I really haven't had time for photography since last summer/fall. I work every day (24-7); two part-time jobs. I am also taking 5 college classes and have decided to major in business for now.

I read 4 of your posts on this page; if there was a way to read them all, I would, but I have to get back to Economics reading and taking 1 or 2 exams for it today among other things.

I am glad to see you're still posting. I wish you all the very best in your work/honours studies!

That reminds me of the song (if I'm remembering correctly), "Keep on the Sunny Side of Life."

I didn't mean to write that I work 24-7 (every hour of every day-HA!-, although it does feel like I work non-stop sometimes), I just meant to say that if I'm not at work, then I'm doing school, cleaning, etc. . . with not enough sleep (1-5 hours per night on average plus a nap here or there if I'm lucky).

Sounds tough, it's a good thing you are ellesappelle & can accomplish anything! If it were me I'd just spend all time with the swivelly chair going around & around & around.

Most of my anxiety dreams involved my current self being thrown back into college. So you are my hero.

FLY HERO, FLY!!!

Hmm....sounds a bit like my graduate statistics class. Although I didn't have access to a photocopier...

Hang in there. :)
