I just submitted my term paper and attachments for my final for my critical writing and reasoning class. I had until midnight MST, but I’ve been up since 4 am working on it (as I have been 5 out of the last 7 days). I’m exhausted, I’ve got the minimum length…and I just can’t THINK about it anymore. Never in my life have I been more relieved to turn in a “barely adequate” paper. At least that’s how I feel about the quality of it. I talked to my academic advisor today, who said that the requirement was to have a submission in by May 15th, but there was a loophole that if it didn’t meet the standards on the rubric, I would be able to revise and resubmit it by June 15. So I guess I’m taking advantage of the system…but in a twisted way it seems like exactly the way the worst semester of my life should end.
Tomorrow night I’m still planning on my quickie California trip. I’m hoping to get on the 7:30 pm flight out of Detroit. If I don’t make it, I’ll be able to coordinate with Taylor’s high-speed and take the car home. I want to make it to the Huntington with Liz, Chris and Mary’s wedding reception, see my in-laws, grab some In-n-Out, and hopefully see the ocean (Dockweiller Beach is about 10 minutes from LAX). Now that I can purchase Zed passes, I’m feeling a little more confident about flying non-rev on an almost full return flight. Cross your fingers for me!
