The End is Near

There are 11 days of classes left until the end of term.
And I have 8 assignments/presentations/assessments due within those 11 days.

Naturally, rather than spend my time working on the above stated tasks, I have taken to doing things such as...

  • Painting my nails - which is not the best idea when you need to type... 
  • Making hummus for the first time - it was delicious! 
  • Making cookies

  • Having family dinners 
  • Learning the lyrics to Beyonce 
  • Making banana muffins - all the baking is in anticipation of needing to fall back on my backup career


  • Cleaning the entire house
  • Buying sparkly shoes

  • Aaaand, perusing that wonderful thing called the Internet - specifically websites such as...

Anyway, needless to say, I'm losing it.
And 4:30pm on December 5th can't come soon enough.

Hopefully I'll survive...
I'll keep you posted.

PS: Here's the recipe for the banana muffins I made...
