In The Trenches
Wow, I haven't updated in a while! The past month or so I've been in the trenches as I like to say. This is my last semester at the University of Illinois and I graduate in 4 days. Basically, I've been bombarded with paper after paper, presentation after presenation and exam after exam. When this semester concludes, I would have written a 20 page journal article, a 23 page paper (roughly), four 6-7 page papers, and a bunch of short papers ranging from 1-3 pages. In case you were wondering, I'll be getting my degree in History (with a minor in African American studies) with intentions to become a high school teacher and free lance writer. I was going completely out of my mind for a while because these assignments were stressing me out, but I'm almost at the finish line and it feels good.
However, it wasn't just school work that was stressing me. Let's see, along with those tedious assignments, I've also been maintaining a long distance relationship, and coughing up money to repair my busted car. Oh, and did I mention that my digital camera also broke and laptop started acted weird so I almost lost all of my class assignments and music. In addition, my ability to record songs has been limited because of that. That was probably good though, since I wasn't able to get sidetracked by rapping, but sometimes I have so much on my mind that I need to get it off my chest. Alright, well, I'm just about finished with my 20 page paper (that will probably end up 23 pages like stated earlier) but I'm going to get some shut eye and finish that in the morning. PEACE!
