You guessed it..The school year here at Judson is picking up. I decided to take Autobiography Writing this semester to help me with my med school personal statement and writing skills in general. One of my classmates, Caitlin, was talking about her study plan before class. She arranges short homework assignments between large ones to stay pumped. I'm going to have to take a page out of her book.
Yes, I'm feeling just a little burned out! Last week was a serious killer. Between painting, a paper, homework, lots of reading, and my work study math study session job, I got to bed way later than I would've liked every single night and had to get up much earlier than I wanted to every morning. It's Labor Day weekend and although I'm sleeping later, I still have to study every day. Grrrrr!! It's easy to get so many projects going that you don't have time for yourself! I'm sure that's true at every college or university.
This morning I did take some time off to go to the beach with my Labrador and boyfriend. Yes, believe it or not, there is a really nice sandy beach within 15 minutes of Judson! Perry Lakes Park/Barton's Beach is a fun place to go when you need a tan or just some chill time away from the books. During our time there, we saw kids playing in the river, neat birds, people with canoes, a ton of amazing butterflies, and several Judson students! I seriously need to buy a butterfly book!
This afternoon, I've been reading James Elkins' What Painting Is for Painting class. I've also been working on my AMCAS computerized medical school application. It'll get sent to UAB and South Alabama. My MCAT scores are supposed to be posted next Tuesday. Hopefully all will go well and I can be in med school next fall. If that plan doesn't work though, I'll be in a good place to get in the next year. Will try to make a dent in my Spanish vocabulary tonight for Spanish 1 Test 1 coming up next week..
