Did take one final exam. Am confident that I did not 'bomb' it.
Did work on my paper today, for several hours. I am sure that it's presentation will not go well. It discusses what I refer to as the 'lost boys,' those young men who are, age wise, young men, but behave more as little boys, irresponsible, petulant, unmotivated, expecting to be taken care of and whining bitterly when they are not. My paper compares their attitudes against the attitudes of those who have come before them. How was that lost? What has changed? I think that it is a sound paper. Not spectacular. It will not be a popular paper because as much as I stress the fact that these 'lost boys' are a subgroup, that not all of this generation is lost, my listeners will listen to this paper and feel angry and misunderstood. I can't come up with anything else, however. Not at this late date. It is due on Thursday. I've got about six pages of an eight page paper written.
I did not stay for my last class. The weather was getting pretty blustery. After spending most of the day in a computer lab, my legs were so cold that I could barely stand the pains. I made an executive decision to come home and work there.
Tomorrow, I will go back to school, and I will hit that paper hard one more time. Hopefully, it will be done. I will go to my class, and begin studying for a final on Tuesday. Wednesday, I have a final essay to write (they begin with the citations. If there is an error there, you've failed, and they don't even read your exam. I then have one more final exam, and (finally) I will be done. Wednesday afternoon, the semester will be officially done for me.
On one hand, that doesn't seem like such a long time. On the other hand, it seems like it will never get here.
