What I've Been Doing

I figure I owe all ya'll an update, seeing as it's been about a week since I blogged and I'm supposed to be reporting on my WIP progress. Yes, I know I just said Work in Progress progress. Redundancy FTW.

Anyway, this is what I've been doing:

Thing #1

Thing #2

Thing #3

But I HAVE been writing! I swear! I have about five pages of indecipherable content for my WIP in my school notebook. My professors can testify to the fact that I spend every class period being a diligent, resourceful student by harnessing all that free time to write. It'd make it much easier though if they'd stop talking during writing time. I mean, really, what are they trying to do with all that information about HR and sociology? That doesn't help my WIP at all.

Memo to self: Find out what their incessant babblings are all about.

(Don't worry. I accepted the fact two quarters ago that my professors probably don't like me. It makes school so much more fun. Trust me.

Professor: "I see some of you are taking really good notes, but this won't be on the test."

Me: "Oh, don't worry, I'm not taking notes. I'm writing about a dead Civil War soldier and ghosts and Jews."

Professor: "*stunned silence* This is a business law class."

Me: "Is it? Huh. How much do you know about cars from the 1930s?")

Well, the I Am Number Four guy is smokin' hot...no wonder you're not blogging. That trailer was amazing. Now I have to read the book.

And notes/shmotes -- if you're a good reader (which I KNOW you are) and you have someone in class that you know with half a brain and you can either study with them or borrow their notes, then you'll do fine.

Even though it doesn't feel like it when you're in the thick of college...you will be SO happy that you earned a college degree. Trust me. Remember what I said about mindset...your mindset has the power to either sabotage or uplift.

100% up to you.

I hate blogger sometimes. I just left a comment and it went into thin air - tech. difficulties. ANYWAY. I said this post reminded me of Ferris Bueller, which would mean we have to take said car from the 1930s for a joy ride. And then I called shotgun.

I remember writing a very important outline on the back of my chemistry notes in high school. I then absent-mindedly filed those two pages with my writing, not my chemistry. Forgot about it, did not study those pages, subsequently discovered the gap in my chemistry knowledge while sitting in the exam. Alas.

LOL, I used to do that in college. I also do that when I'm on boring conference calls and meetings :P

BTW I love that ModCloth site. Haven't ordered anything from them yet but I really really love those Victorian-esque shoes they have on there. I may have drooled a little...
