So much relief! I finally finished the major project for a class today. It's been something that we've worked on all semester so it's never not been a present thing. Which makes it really weird that I now never have to think about it again, except when I get my grade back. It was something … Continue reading It’s Done!
Now that thanksgiving break is over it's time to start the downhill slide of this semester. Yep. It's time for the last three weeks of school, which will feel like a constant downward spiral of work and projects and studying for finals. Thanksgiving break was great, being able to relax for several days, sleeping in … Continue reading Back to Work

I know I'm a bit late to the party on reading these books. I've been wanting … Continue reading Finally!
As I'm working on my degree in English I am also working for a psychology minor, which means that every few semesters I've had to take one psychology class or another. This semester I chose to take Cognitive Psychology because it sounded like it would be a fun class. And it has been. The content … Continue reading Experience with APA
IT'S FINALLY HERE!! Thankgiving Break! I have waited so long for this to show up. It's been a long time since we had a break in school and I was getting exhausted.

But you think it's appropriate to come into the library talking so loud that I can hear you over the music I am listening to. Seriously, I'm … Continue reading I’m Trying to Work
