I guess this really is my school blog because I have thought not at all about school this past week and I’ve not found anything to say here. Well, that’s not entirely true. I’ve been thinking on and off about whether I’ll go to classes this coming week. We still have more I want to get done around the house and I have oodles of thank-you notes to write, and the truth is… now that my final papers are submitted I just feel done with it all, with this semester’s classes anyhow. I think I will go to my Bonhoeffer seminar one more time as there are two remaining classes and it is an afternoon class which means I could rest in the morning before. I likely won’t make the very last class, but I’ll make the second to last class. As for my other two classes, there is only one session of each left, one on my due date, and one the day after my due date. I think… I’ll be missing those. Especially given that yesterday I finally heard from the prof who belatedly asked for some editing work to be done this semester. He passed off the essays to be edited about a month ago. Three weeks ago I e-mailed him to say that I was in a crunch to get all my finals written in two weeks and that there was a lot to be done to get ready for baby so I wasn’t sure what I’d be able to get done. Just yesterday he replied offering a deadline for the first time- a deadline of December 8th. It is irritating to have worked my tail off to be done with my academic obligations by Thanksgiving and to have another one yet hanging over me, especially when I communicated regularly throughout the semester, to all involved parties, the load I felt I could carry and the timing I planned for the carrying of this load. So… I’ll have to spend a couple hours a day on this this week, I guess. Sigh. At least the essays are vaguely related to my area of interest.
Perhaps I’ll also order books for next semester’s self-study… that will be more invigorating.
