    Well, I Have Time to Kill Before Finals

    By Anthony | April 18, 2013

    It’s my last semester of college. I’m in the final week and it’s looking like it’s going to be an easy finish for me. I am having the most productive unproductive time of my life.

    Mood=Lazy

    Song of the Week=Cover me in Gold by Nacho Picasso

    Random=VEDA Day 5

     

    Let me tell you all a story. There was a point in time where I thought that I wouldn’t be here. I didn’t think that I had what it took to survive. I almost gave up before I even started. Things just didn’t look too bright for me and, at the moment, I there wasn’t anything for me to build my confidence on.

    That moment was last night when I was writing a paper.

    Earlier that day, the professor pushed the due date from 8:00 a.m. to midnight but I still decided to stay up late and do it anyways so I can get scheduling done this morning at work. If I hadn’t decided to just irresponsibly stay up late knowing I had to wake up early the next morning when I clearly had a week to write this incredibly short paper, I may not be here today writing this blog.

    That brief, two-hour setback aside, my day is surprisingly clear today. One of my classes wrapped up on Tuesday and one of my professors decided to give us more time to work on our assignment and totally not because they ran out of things to lecture, so I guess that frees up my entire day today.

    So the question becomes, what to do? Do I go to the Oval and slackline? Do I go to Mirror lake and see how long my game of water polo lasts before I get kicked out? Maybe I’ll take a nap in the middle of one of the intersections and see how long it takes before the traffic just moves around me.

    Even my finals week looks like I’ll be coasting by. Since we moved to semesters, we’re doing this weird thing where we’re starting on Wednesday and ending on a Tuesday. Normally, this would confuse and anger me, however, I only have to turn in papers and my final is on Friday so I’m done during final week one. All I have to do is write a paper, do a portfolio, and take a final and I’m finished.

    I even made a schedule to tell me when to write the papers and study for my final

    Then you’ll never hear from me again.

    Until probably next week when I blog again. And then the week after. And if you found my social networking sites. Then I guess you’d hear from me again. Otherwise, I’m gone. Get a good look at me while you can.

    Lesson Learned: Apparently, playing water polo in Mirror Lake is a crime!
