Jenny Lynn//24//University of South Carolina alumnus//Fly the friendly skies
you may say i'm a dreamer, but i'm not.
don't talk about it, be about it.
i had my last ever class in a college classroom (assuming i never go back to get my masters/ doctorate) yesterday. it lasted about 5 minutes- really the only way to go out.
i also spent 6 hours of the day before that working on the last real paper of my bachelor’s degree education. it was 40 pages, and better be fruitful of an “A”.
i ALSO went and met with my supervisor for my internship- she’s awesome, and not solely because her name is Jen. i got a nice little briefing on my budget, schedule, expectations, and that i’ll be reimbursed for gas and any other related expenses. we’re meeting with the PR girls that I’ll be working closely with (Flock and Rally if you’re familiar) next friday evening for drinks. i got offered another internship today, also unpaid- ya snooze, ya lose.
i spent most of today driving around lexington and west columbia applying for part-time jobs to pay for my internship and to just have some money. so we’ll see how that goes.
now i must study for the exam that i have at 9 AM tomorrow, and start the take-home exam that’s due by 5 tomorrow. kthxbye.
*clever subject line, i know- hold the applause*
i need to be writing a 10 page paper that is due at 5:30 tomorrow, but of course- i am not. it’s about my strengths and weaknesses, and how to enhance and overcome them in my quest to be a leader. thing is, don’t really care to be a leader- if i’m being honest, or at least it’s not something i have the ambition to do right now, in this crazy time of trying to find internships/first jobs.
i’ve been applying to internships like a mad woman, and i finally heard back from one this afternoon; phone interview tomorrow, veryyyy nervous. i’ll give the details on it after i hear the final verdict, otherwise i’ll be overly crushed if i don’t get it. y’know? expectations kill.
okay- paper time. goodbyeeeeee.
This semester is the freaking worst! I never thought that after all of the changes I made to become a better student since starting at USC that I would get “senioritis” my last semester, but sure enough, I have it. Bad.
I definitely picked the wrong semester to take on 6 classes. I do blame my advisor for this though, partially at least- they should tell you to spread out your easy classes and save some for semesters such as these, but she did not advise me in that way. So now I have more than a full course load of 400/500 classes, one of which was up until now a graduate program class.
I realize that my major is a very easy one, but time management has never been my strong suit- throw in a double shot of senioritis and an additional pinch of procrastination, and I’m basically good for nothing. My apologies go out now to my group project members, which there’s a TON of (why so many group projects, professors? they SUCK!). I’m basically conducting an experiment from this moment on to see how little I can do and still pass. SorryI’mNotSorry.
