My brain was starved for knowledge. I couldn’t wait to start grad school and begin learning new things.
Grad school was all fun and games until the first round of tests, which starts tomorrow.
Well, technically I’ve had a quiz a week and one exam for my introductory nutrition class, but I haven’t stressed out about those — until now. I had worked ahead in that class, and since the class only allows you to do so much before they release new modules and quizzes, I’m caught up. Since I work full time, the weekend is the only time I really have to work on classwork. I’ve got to study for my graphic design history test (it’s tomorrow) AND work on a couple of quizzes for my nutrition class.
Also, I’ve got quite a few freelance projects. I’m glad for the business, and I’m hoping to continue to get freelance in this capacity, but this weekend’s to-do list quickly snowballed.
Add to that the fact that it’s laundry and deep-cleaning weekend … and that Mark is needing to apply for jobs and do his research work … AND that both Mark’s parents AND my parents had asked us to meet up for dinner yesterday (my parents had randomly decided to drive here for the weekend, unbeknownst to me until noon on Saturday) …
… we’re a bit stressed here.
Though, I did get a manicure yesterday. That was devine. And I picked up some new colors of nail polish that together look like the color scheme of the 80s-90s graphic design I’ve been studying (see above).
I was in need of a break, and some venting. But now I feel better. I’m almost done with my nutrition stuff, and I studied design history for about 8 hours yesterday — in the form of typing my handwritten notes and editing the photos I’d taken from the class slides into a recognizable form. Oh, and I can’t complain too much because I spent that study time watching the rest of Season 3 of Glee and 90210 on Netflix.
How did you study for tests? And what did you do this weekend? I’d like to live vicariously through some of you I’m sure.
