The Return

So Andy and I headed back to Albany today, mid-afternoon. It took me a while to pack up, but once I had everything together, I did manage to be slightly productive by getting most of one assignment from the break done. I’ve still got a page or two left to read for it, but essentially, it’s finished. 

Which is good! While on the one hand, I’ve really enjoyed not doing any homework over the vacation, I’ve also really disliked knowing that I have work due this week. Still, I decided to throw caution to the wind and enjoy myself, rather than freak out about work. I think I made the right call, even if it means I have more work to do now than before. Oh well.

I just have to keep reminding myself that this whole ordeal will be over within six weeks, and then–unless I decide–I won’t ever have to deal with the B.S. they call college. A little bitter? Yes, but I’m stressed out. For the most part, I’ve really enjoyed my college experience, but when they keep handing out all this busywork… It drives me nuts! I have lots of other things I’d rather do when I’m not in class that doesn’t involve doing work for class. I’m very much looking forward to not having homework. That’s the golden ticket at the end of this crazy contest. 

 The trip back went smoothly. Listened to good music and ate some deliciously unhealthy McDonald’s. That’s right–and we loved it, though I think we’re both glad we don’t eat there more often. Just eating the fries (which were particularly salty today) and reading that a double-quarter-pounder with cheese is, in fact, 96% of your sodium needs for the day, we both felt a good degree less healthy. Lots of fruits and veggies to counter-act that meal! 

Other than that, nothing too new. Back at school, mentally preparing myself for another week’s rush. I do like my schedule, with all the insanity of super-busy on Monday, tapering off as we head toward Friday. It makes the week go by a little faster, I think. Got a little more school work done when I got here, and now I’m off to prepare my lunch for tomorrow, finish up a few more assignments, plan my work tactics for the week, and hopefully get a few minutes of HP reading in before curling up and going to sleep. ^_^ 

Side note: WordPress has been being a dreadful pain about paragraph breaks. I put them in, and it takes them out. I have no idea why it’s doing this now, when it didn’t several posts ago. *frustrated*
