My discussion partner seems to be MIA. I wonder if she's decided our topic is too hard, so she doesn't want to deal with it. Perhaps she's been struck down by H1N1. Maybe she's contacted the instructor and pleaded temporary insanity, "I didn't realize what I was doing singing up for Discussion Leading so soon." I don't know. What I do know is that I worked my ass off today to gather materials for the discussion and to complete my rhetorical analysis of the essay we're focusing on. I haven't heard from my partner since Thursday, and we have to lead this discussion in class on Tuesday; a little less than 48 hours from now. We still need to figure out who is going to say what and whether we're on the same page in terms of the analysis of the essay. This is why I hate working with partners. For now, I'm preparing to fly solo on this one, because that way I will be prepared no matter what.
Music Man brought up a good point after witnessing my meltdown this morning over all the work I still had to do. Even though I'll still have about the same amount of homework from week to week, this big project will be out of the way. After this week, I'll no longer have to worry about this big, stressful part of my grade. This is both good and bad. Good because it will be done and I will not have to stress over it anymore. Bad because it's 10-15% of my grade, and if I don't do well on it, that's just going to damper my spirits; maybe even push me to decide that I might as well not try as hard on all the other stuff. I reeeeeeeeally hope I do well on it. I'll know after Tuesday.
I have one piece of the mountain of homework left to complete: the essay. I've picked my art. Now all I have to do it bullshit my way through the first draft of an essay. I should be able to get that done tomorrow. Then, I'll be all ready to go for class. What a fantastic fuckin' weekend I've had. I bet you wish you were me...
What’s up, weekend 4/28
