Week in Review: What I Read

This week has been spent playing catch-up after a lovely weekend away in Chapel Hill, NC (more on that later). Here are a few articles I found interesting this week:

  1. How Gen-Y And Millenials Can Avoid the Pitfalls of Burnout: As someone who has been incredibly stressed at the end of senior year, I found this article enlightening. I agree with the author that all too often my generation has a drive to “do more” or “be more” without a real end-goal in sight. Without this thing to work toward it’s hard to appreciate accomplishments!
  2. Wealth or Waste? Rethinking the Value of a Business Major: Music to my ears! So often the value of a liberal arts education is downplayed and it is nice to see a major news outlet acknowledging the good things about majoring in a “non-professional” area.
  3. Private Islands for Rent: I know where I am headed for my next vacation! Who hasn’t dreamt of living it up like Johnny Depp on a private island with all the ameneties? It’s like Never Never Land only you get to be a grown-up.
  4. 17 Things You Didn’t Know About Coffee: I guzzle coffee like Lorelei Gilmore and I’m not ashamed to admit it. My coffee consumption is second only to my tea consumption. That being said, it’s always nice to read a little more about my (second) favorite beverage.

Finals take too much time

Tomorrow is the last day of classes and the final push to the end has begun. For biology lab I had a presentation due today and a paper that is due on Monday; for History of the Reformation I have a paper that is due next Wednesday. In my biology lecture class, this coming Monday is our final test for unit 4 AND our final (cumulative) exam. But the worst has to be my U.S. Women class where I have a massive paper and a final exam that are on Friday.

I’ve already turned in the Biology lab and Reformation papers, I suppose that I am ahead of the ball in that respect. I have all of my study materials filled out, flashcards made for my biology and U.S. women finals, but the paper is going to kill me! We got the topic for this paper so much later than the Reformation one and, though the papers are to be about the same length, the U.S. women one feels so much more stressful because of how condensed the timeline has become. I have to finish the research yet and then actually write the 8-15 pages sometime in the next week :/

Needless to say, I won’t be posting again for the next week or so! Have a wonderful time as the school year closes and I’ll be blogging again soon!

Ta for now,
