Making the Rounds…

I started this entry a week ago and it was a sad Saturday with the loss of my beloved Bulldogs to Auburn.  Here’s how I felt:

I’m working on my paper for Legislative Process and finally making some progress.  The rough draft is due on Thursday.  I have a doctor’s appointment I’ll have to reschedule, but that’s okay. I made the rounds to some meetings yesterday morning before working on the paper and watching very sad college football. One of my friends who reads this blog and I were talking and he said something like, “I can feel the stress in your writing.”  That’s good because I am very stressed out related to school.  But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am going to make it.

More to come.

I thought about deleting this since I’ve been so busy and it’s been so long, but I promised to be honest about my feelings as I got through this grad school experience. One of my biggest flaws (and plusses, at times) is I am too optimistic. I mean, I can find the silver lining in any situation.  The reason why my husband and I are so good together is he knows when to pull me back to reality.  I call it pulling me in off the cliff.

But I am optimistic.  I’m almost finished with class this semester and I think I will be successful–at least, passing and that I am happy about.

This week, I’m helping an old friend do some radio and I’m getting ready for my family to come in.  So listen to me today and tomorrow on WDUN AM 550 in Gainesville, Georgia. On about Saturday, I will turn my attention back to school.

Happy Thanksgiving.
