We Can Rebuild Her……..we think

Back to the Grind

Today I start another 10 week semester. Technically 9 weeks since the last week is just for professors to catch up on late submissions and get final grades in. 9 weeks of scattered sleep, research sessions, writing sessions, re-writing sessions, reading until my eyes hurt and posting lots and lots of posting on our discussion boards. I love the online college platform because it’s flexible to the random needs of my life. I think if I was going to a traditional school I’d probably lose what’s left of my sanity a lot quicker. Plus I’d feel weird being in a lecture hall surrounded by 17-18 year olds when I’m 30 going on 31. Cause you know it only takes one person to find out I’m over 21 and then all of a sudden “Hey can you buy us beer?” Ummm….no not risking fines so you can get wasted it’s not happening kiddo. It takes a lot of OCD level organization to keep me on track. Sometime during my sophomore year I started going out and getting these giant wall calendars to keep everything organized. This is what my current semester looks like…..

Pretty accurate visual for what goes on in my head….even the black scribbles…think those would be urggghhh in my head

But what about doctor appointments and other things you say….that’s what the calendar on my phone is for. Not going to clog this calendar up with non-school stuff. This semester I only have 7 papers to do, which is less than last semester, they’re all 3-6 pages except my final that’s 6-10 pages. Well every semester I find some way to streamline my life. Last semester I started working ahead on a bunch of papers and I had 5 of my last 10 done weeks in advance. Gives me more time to stress over the bigger projects. Don’t worry I won’t disappear and let cobwebs start forming on this blog. I might not get on here everyday but at least every other day. Time for me to see what I can work on ASAP.

Little Miss Productive

I’m one of those people who chose to work for a while until I figured out what I wanted to go to school for. After two false starts, communications then restaurant management major, I figured I needed some time. Student loans make it easier for you to get the education you want. And you don’t think about them until after you’re done with school and have to pay them back.

I spent 6 months thinking I wanted to be a writer or PR exec, after I graduated high school. When I lost my desire for that I went to culinary school for 6 months. Then I realized that wasn’t the life I wanted. So I left. Spent the next few years working at some interesting places. I’ve sold office supplies (door to door), gave guided tours by horse drawn carriage, done store inventories, raised funds for an environmental group, and worked in customer service. What can I say I don’t always pick your typical 9 to 5.

I waited until I was 28 to go back to college and get my degree. Always had an interest in Criminal Justice and Psychology. I remember watching Silence of the Lambs when I was 11, and thinking “I wanna do that“. Tip-toe through the mind of a serial killer and help bring a family justice. Yeah, I wanted to be Clarice and work for the FBI. So I went back for Forensic Psychology, and I love it! I’d never been an honors student in high school. But I am now. I work my butt off to get projects done on time. I’ve got a wall calendar with all my assignments on it, so I can keep track of things.

When I can, I work ahead. Right now I’ve got 4 of my last 8 projects for the semester done already. And I plan on having the last four done within the next two weeks. I have the one thing I never had in high school, a high GPA. 3.95 and I plan on keeping it that way. So I’ll stay in instead of going out with friends. I’ll work on papers instead of vegging out in front of the TV. In the end I’ll be proud of myself for dedicating all that free time to keeping myself on track. I made my mom a promise before she died that I’d be her only child to finish college. In 14 months I’ll be a college grad πŸ™‚ Call me dedicated, call me tenacious, call me sleep deprived…..my name is Little Miss Productive and I’m keeping that promise!
