Midterms, Reading and more Reading

Holy Crap! Midterms were killer. Let's just say that I finally have time to breath, but not exactly. I had 3 midterms all in the space of a few days, somehow the middle of the semester snuck up on me, there are only about 7 weeks left in this semester, which seems crazy to me, mainly because I have so much left to do! I have a research paper in 3 classes, two of which I haven't even started the research for and I have a book review for another class. My philosophy class always keeps me writing, our exam is due Tuesday but thankfully I am pretty much done, except for editing!

I've been thinking about the impending is going to be here sooner than I think. This semester is almost over and all I will have left is 4 classes, which seems like a breeze compared to this semester. I am excited though because I think I finally narrowed in on what I want to study for grad school, which takes a load off my back. There is a professor at my school that is doing exactly what I want to do and he is specializing in what I want to study, so I took the time to pick his brain!!! It was a great meeting and as it turns out, I will probably be his research assistant for the spring semester. Yeah it is an additional class but all you really do is research and probably write a paper. It will give me great experience for grad school!

I have decided though, that for now I am planning on taking a year off before I start grad school, mainly because I am 75% sure that I am going out of state. I have a particular school in mind and I just have to get everything together....let's just say I haven't exactly been preparing for the GRE...not even a little bit...not even at all!!! I have procrastinated that for AS LONG AS POSSIBLE!!! It will probably bite me in the rear but I am super burnt out, I think taking a break will be good for me, give me time to think and gather my thought!!!

Not much has really been happening besides school, except my sabbatical from facebook, let's just say that I get SOOOOOO much more work done when I do not log on. I did have to get on today because it is the birthday and like 30 people wrote on my wall and I have to be gracious and thank them for the birthday wishes!! It's weird to be my age, I feel worlds apart from other people I will be graduating with, in more ways than just age. I have been so focused on school that everything else has kind of faded away into the background. I am looking forward to some much needed time off, as long as I can find a job!!!!
