Since my life is more than shoes...

I thought I'd share it with you

Just a few more days

and the worst will be over. I have 4 papers and 3 presentations. 2 papers are finished, 1 is started, and 1 is not even started. 1 presentation ready (I was supposed to present last week), 2 to go. The papers are due on Monday and Tuesday, and everything will be in by next Monday. I'm relieved to be almost done, but rather sad - I'll never have this experience again where you spend 2 years of your life with the same 10 people talking about something you are all interested in. When they all move away, I'll have to make new friends.

This is not how you want to start your week

Unfortunately, I was on this train this afternoon. Fortunately, I didn't see anything because I was engrossed in my readings for my archives class. According to bystanders as we waited for the 36 bus (the shuttle was not started when I was still there), the woman jumped in front of the train. All I heard was the driver screaming and then people saying we hit someone. Lots of police and fire trucks came really quickly, but it seems like there isn't a lot of information right now. It wasn't even on the news tonight.

So I passed my exam, but now I've got 4 papers and 3 presentations. I'm not really sure how I got into this mess. And I want to go to more school? Crazy girl. I should hear from U of I around the end of the month.
