Next Semester is Coming Fast!

Applying to SCF, Deadlines, What can you do now? (for high school students) No Comments »

     I parked at school last week next to a large beat up van.  On the window the owner painted, “5 Mill O.B.O.”  It made me feel like I was at college with real students.  So many people opt for these refined pieces of chrome nowadays, but now my dented gray automobile fit right in.
     As per the good news: I found a lot of scholarships!  For the bad news I missed the deadline for transferring SCF Foundation Scholarships, but if you’re a student continuing at SCF next semester you still have until April 1, yes that is seven days away!  There are also private foundation scholarships available that have varying deadlines, with the earliest being March 31.  I know it feels like no time to consider next semester when this one is just half over, but don’t miss the deadline like I did.�
     Well my scatterbrain has more homework to do, including a few scholarship applications- know anyone who would write me a letter of recommendation?

what is it about this semester?

Coursework, Semester schedule, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

Is the health care debate wearing me down? Is it the recent norovirus flu I had that is messing me up? Am I lazy? overloaded/worked? anxious to graduate? What is it that is causing me to fall behind is just about EVERYTHING! Am I just looking for a way to not do work, or am I really overloaded with work? I feel stressed out, and I swear I am doing the best I can.

I never tried to push myself to the limit, though. I never added more and more on until it was too much. Thus, I have not known just how much I could handle until now. This, of course, is pertaining to responsibilities of work/school load. Trust me, I have had heavy loads before – as we all have. It seems heavy loads is a way of life.

I try to balance my responsibilities vs. entertainment. It seems responsibilities are so great and in such large quantities that I have no entertainment time; and yet, I force entertainment time. I refuse to not be entertained.

I apologize for being quiet this month. I am doing what I can.

Pizza with the President on the Venice campus has been cancelled at this time. It was supposed to be Tuesday, March 23rd. I have not heard of a new date yet.

I hope no one else feels stressed like I do from the work load. Six more weeks left; that’s all! (Seven if you include Finals week.)

I am graduating this semester, but it feels so far away even though it is seven weeks away.

This blog seems just as sporadic as my semester is/has been.
