I haven’t had much to say recently. Life’s been getting in the way.
This week is the last week of classes before finals, and it’s the week of every semester that I despise the most. Every professor crams at least one last exam in before finals, usually covering a chapter every class period. It’s safe to say the chapters are not very thoroughly discussed. Then, the student is expected to read the chapters and fill in the blanks the professor left.
That’s all fine and dandy except that every professor is doing this all in the same week. Read 6 chapters this week? It’s not going to happen. Even if I did cram all that reading in, I wouldn’t remember a lick of it!
I have a take-home exam due in Physics tomorrow, then will have an exam in Probability/Statistics sometime next week, Meteorology Lecture and Lab exams Thursday evening, and then a Biochemistry exam scheduled for Friday. Just to put this in perspective, those are all the classes I’m taking this semester!
Tomorrow, I have my next appointment at the clinic. I’m not looking forward to that because last time, they had to draw blood from the back of my hand (ouch!). I’ve been drinking a lot of water, hoping it will help plump up my veins or something.
And Tuesday, I am presenting my senior seminar project. It’s a 20-minute proof of a theorem I’ve chosen. I’m a little nervous, but I think it will be alright.
At least the Christmas knitting I have to finish is nearly done and is enjoyable. I’m ready to start the heel on Cassie’s second sock. I worked up a quick bookmark over the weekend as well to go along with a gift that I won’t mention yet. I’m hoping to do another bookmark also, but will probably have to improvise the design for it.
On top of all this, Nate left a bit ago for Alabama, where he’ll be at least over the next week. It’s been scheduled as a week in Alabama for a couple of months, but someone hinted recently that they might “need him for a couple extra days.” I don’t like when he’s gone.
We are still in the process of getting this house. We have to get letters of credit history from some of our lenders–just got one in the mail yesterday, have another on the way, and Nate has to call two more companies tomorrow. Then we have to write a letter and get our landlord to sign it, then send everything to the guy at the bank. He can’t proceed with the loan process until he gets these letters.
So, with all this going on, I’ve been lazy in my Bible reading. If you’ve been following my Bible Challenge, you’ll see this (next update will be up tomorrow). I am frustrated with myself, and that verse from Romans keeps coming to mind, when Paul discusses how he wants to do good, but he doesn’t. I want to read my Bible, but I don’t. I’m praying for diligence and self-control in this issue, that I can stop being lazy and read!
There’s my life in a nutshell over the past week and what is coming up in the next week or two.
