I know there are other student sout there!!! My finals are officailly done! I am so happy. They were so stressful. This was my first semester of post secondary and I got an 80% average, so I'm darn pleased!!!!I am taking business right now, then will specialize in human resources. My course is 2 years, with a year long work program sandwiched in so I will be done April of 2011.

How did everyone else's finals go?

When will you be done!


Another Whoop for finals to be done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello! My finals are finally over today too ! YAY!

I'm at Community College right now majoring in Education. I'll be graduating in may of 09, then moving on to finish a bachelors degree in Math and a Master's degree in Education at a university (not sure which one yet.) I'll either be at Hollins University, a very snooty private girls' school, or I'll be at Mary Balwin University, which is also a private school but not quite as snooty, and about 1/3 the price. lol

This semester I finished Principles of Psychology, Physics 201, Intro to Teaching, and History of American Art. Next semester I'll be taking First Aid, the second part of Physics, the second part of Hisotry of Art (Unless I clep out of French. *crosses fingers!*), Intro to Speech Communication, and Film Appreciation.

I feel your pain.

Except from the other end. Im a professor, and we just got finished with what we refer to as HELL WEEK. Meaning - days upon days of endless grading.

Every assignment you have, every paper, every project - gets multiplied by the amount of students I have and thats how long it takes me to grade it all. I have three regular acting classes, and one smaller comedy course. About 95 students total. So thats 95 projects , final papers, and comments for each one. I started last Saturday and graded an average of 8-9 hours per day - for 4 days. I finally finished up yesterday by going out to the college to meet a couple students who had to do a makeup final performance for me. So other than grading them, Im done.

But then hell week part two begins - thats when I actually submit the grades into the computer and then start getting the emails from students whining about their grades. THATS fun.


Congrats on finishing. !

OH man do I agree! This weekend is the first one where I don't have to study!!! I am so excited and yea, they were definitely stressful! it was my first semester married, and we bought a condo so I was absent a lot--I had a LOT of catching up to do, but so far--3.9 term GPA! 3.92 Cumulative. I'm so excited!

I am also taking business--Accounting to be specific. I am doing the 5 year program to graduate with a masters. I will finish December 2010, but won't be able to walk until May 2011. I can't wait for that date to come! lol But if it goes as fast as wedding planning and the wedding, I'll be done in no time, as will you ladies!! :-)

Congratulations everyone!! Enjoy the holidays and the break!!

September 13, 2008   :-) Just Married!! <3

Ladies,

It's so worth it. Hang in there. Think of me not as AOTB, but as Future You, with a fulfilling job and decent salary, telling Today You to keep your eyes on the prize.

Amen on finals! I finished last week with all A's. I am in my sophomore year studying to be a Kindergarten teacher and was psyched about vacation until i realized (oh about an hour ago) that I start back the week after next :( Oh well, the faster school goes, the faster I graduate I guess. I am graduating in May 2011 and getting married in June 2011-- can't wait!

Our wedding is FOREVER AND A DAY away!

Wow, I never understood why a bride would do that to herself. LOL You're going to be a MONTH from the wedding and having to worry about finals and graduation at the same time, not to mention finding a job. lol I'd go bonkers for sure!

Lol yeah going bonkers is in the plans... Well Dad's blessing is only good if I graduate college first (really just a threat i think :) and we are having a really relaxed beach wedding with just a few people so dealing with both wont be too bad. . . I hope!

Our wedding is FOREVER AND A DAY away!

Eep! LOL At least it's not a fancy 300 person affair I suppose... but maybe at least then you'd have a professional coordinator to do everything for you, right? (LOL!)
