Some of you may have noticed I missed a blog post yesterday, which probably seems hypocritical and dumb just a day after I literally wrote a blog post while sitting in the corner of a party where I was the only completely sober person.
But I swear I have a good reason for it.
And that reason is… I’m just really god damn busy this week.
It isn’t quite the same kind of busy as I was during midterms a few weeks back, this time my responsibilities are a bit more external.
On Friday I have to register for spring 2019 classes. However, in order to be prepared for that, I have to meet with half a dozen people.
I sat down with the Communications internship coordinator this afternoon when I was done with class.
Tomorrow I’m going to Professor Rizzo’s office hours so I can show her all of the material for my honors project (and hopefully get a proposal signed off on so I can sign up for different classes I need).
Wednesday I have to head into campus by 8:00 a.m. to see guidance counselors during walk-in hours (which is a subject I complained about previously). Big fun for a commuting student.
At least then I’ll be able to try and meet my Learning and Memory professor during his office hours to get some more clear feedback on my essay.
I potentially don’t have anything extraneous on Thursday, but that might be the day I meet with my Mass Media Ethics partner for a presentation we have to give next week.
Finally, Friday is a Gladeo meeting day and, as I mentioned, the day I’m officially signing up for next semester’s classes.
It’s all a bit of a time crunch with a ton of moving parts and I’m a bit on-edge.
Then let’s not forget about the other balls I’m juggling. For instance, homework.
The bane of students everywhere.
I also have to try and work out future internship hiring stuff for Gladeo with Michelle at some point in the near future per suggestions made by the internship coordinator. Both so I can have my work apply toward required internship credits and so we can encourage more reporter interns to come work with us.
On top of that I’ve also been working on different summer 2019 internship applications given the deadline for many of them is November 1.
Put together the extensive application for the Boston Globe yesterday. Now that’s floating around in the aether alongside the Washington Post.
I’m not expecting anything of course, but I am anxiously holding my breath.
Plus let’s not forget my other personal pursuits that I’d like to slip in somewhere within that timeframe.
Like finishing my newest armor set in Monster Hunter.
Or possibly buying Shantae Half-Genie Hero, which I saw is on sale right now thanks to the WayForward twitter.
There are just a lot of balls in the air right now. Being able to list them all out here on the blog does help me relax a little, both because it’s keeping track of my responsibilities and because it’s just fun, stress-free writing practice.
But you can essentially take this post as my fair warning that I might be a little more quiet the next couple days, as I’m literally running around like a chicken with its head cut off.
Except for maybe tomorrow when a new Fire Emblem Heroes banner drops. I’ll probably have a post about that.
Because I can’t resist.
