Midterm season is always unnecessarily hectic. I don't understand the point of purposely assigning all major exams and papers within the same period. I mean, doesn't it end up being stressful for the professors too?

My brain is kaput and I've just started. Today I was forced to attend a "multicultural conference" that requires attendance tomorrow as well. Interestingly, they make attendance a requirement for course credit (1 course= $1,300) in order to graduate. But the conference is open to all and any individuals in the country for about $300. It's a bit unfair that we have to pay a significantly higher amount for something we're forced to attend and then have to write a 10 page paper on. Ohhhhhhh academia.

On a positive note, it's midterm season! Meaning the semester is halfway over! Woo hoo!


  1. I enjoyed the university environment, but disliked the regimen.

    Tossing It Out

  2. That is crazy how much more that credit costs vs attendance. Lol, and the paper does not make it sound more fun. Good luck! I remember the craziness of that time.

  3. Alex, Thanks!! I appreciate the pep!

    Judy, I knooooooow! But life is unfair, right? So I guess they are prepping us for the "real" world by shoving this injustice in our face! lol And thank you!

  4. Oh! I remember those days! I studied midterms and pulled all-nighters. Finally, my brain rebelled whole heartedly against me. I passed with a C in my Social Science. OH well. :)
