I volunteered, and it was the most stress-free thing I've done in quite some time. I even blew off the football game to work on a mid-term that I turned in Monday, so I'm feeling slightly proud that academics achieved a win this weekend (Meanwhile, the football team has managed zero wins this season). It has been an awesome week, aside from a history exam, and maybe that is due to the fact I have had a few canceled class sessions. Sleeping late is definitely my jam. In fact, today I have only one class to attend, so I am enjoying every moment. Tomorrow, my family is coming to Statesboro for a competition cheer meet. I'm a little excited, and I am banking on the opportunity to do a little shopping around the city.
I've been thinking about rearranging my room, because lately, it feels a little cramped. Plus, I would also love to try a little interior decorating on the wall behind my bed. And if I am being totally honest with myself, I'd love to have little cacti along my window sill. Living in a tight space makes you appreciate large spaces, and staying in this room makes me wish I owned a house with a sizeable bedroom. On the top of my to-shop list this weekend: Hobby Lobby.
Aside from the more fun things happening this weekend, I'm saying this for the record: I am going to start one of my research papers. It's near the end of October, and I am at a do or die phase in the process. My roommate recently mentioned that Thanksgiving Break was a month away. If one does the math, there's a month before Thanksgiving Break and a week after Thanksgiving Break, and boom, the semester is finished. It isn't a very comfortable feeling as far as the time period of these assignments, but it is also very relieving to know that I am close to finishing my first semester at Georgia Southern University. And the period between fall and spring semester is winter break: GRE study sessions on top of study sessions--mixed with grad school preparations. The saga never ends.
