Crunch Time

Hello, everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing Easter break — maybe with friends and family and/or doing something you enjoy.  I (as usual) had tons of homework to do, but I did enjoy an Easter lunch with my dad’s family (got to see my two young cousins, always adorable and entertaining!) and an Easter egg hunt with my horses!  They each found six eggs filled with clover, carrots, or marshmallows, and of course they loved it immensely.  In case you haven’t figured it out yet, my horses are spoiled. 🙂

If you’ve read my past blogs, you’ll know this semester has been quite a bit different than last semester.  At 18 hours, commuting, working, and just trying to stay afloat, it’s been stressful to say the least.  The upcoming two weeks probably aren’t going to be much different, but I do feel better going into these final weeks than I thought I would at the beginning of the semester.  I have three labs to wrap up, a presentation/report to give, lots of homework, and studying galore for finals, but then before I know it, it will all be over!  Fortunately, I don’t have more than one final on any given day, so it won’t be too unbearable (I hope), and by May 6 at 11:59 p.m., I must have completed everything with my online class and will be done with my second semester of college.  It’s hard to believe that when I return in August, I’ll be a sophomore.  Note to self: time flies by much faster than you think!

Good luck to everyone with finals…hang in there, you’re just a hop, skip, and a jump away!




Crunch Time

I know we’ve all felt like the we were are being crunched under time’s remarkably clever clock. This week has been crazy hectic for me. Maybe it has been all the trick or treat candy that my kiddos collected on Monday that I have ingested or maybe it is my inability to focus or a combo of the two.

It is times like this that I sit at my computer and read , re-read and then re-read again powerpoint directions for my classes and the assignments for them. I know that by taking notes on what I can gather right at this moment it has the potential of making sense in the morning. I also know that through the blessing of e-mail I can clarify the things that aren’t making sense tonight to me with my professor. Thank God because it is crunch time with a big assignment that I thought I had control of and now realize I have more questions than answers.

Also, I hear the clock ticking for me to get my papers for the cultural events I’ve attended this fall done and submitted for the Honor Society. I have had the pleasure of going to the Westport Art Festival with my son earlier this fall. The second event was hearing, Nancy Alcorn, speak about Mercy Ministries. If you have never heard of Mercy Ministries it is worth checking out. They have a remarkable program that transforms young womens lives. Now, I hear that darn clock ticking again because I need to travel your way and attend a cultural program at Fontbonne. If anyone has any good suggestions let me know. By the way if you see a dazed and confused red head on campus this month you know it’s me. Have some mercy on me and help me to find where the event is.

As, I close for the week I want to remind you all to sit your clocks back on Saturday night and enjoy that extra hour of sleep on Sunday. It will soon be back to the daily grind and weekly crunch times we all will face.

Blessings on your weekend- Sherry
