However, it hasn't been so bad. I only missed one class this week, and (this is ridiculous) that was because we had heavy thunderstorms overnight that knocked out traffic signals, and so the bus I chose ended up getting stuck in traffic. What should have been a 35-minute bus ride took over an hour, so I was late for class, and elected to skip it instead of coming in late. I listened to the lecture online later, and I have to tell you, it was such a good lecture. I have a blog post coming that was inspired by the lecture, that's how good it was. I'm sorry I missed it, but I'm thanking goodness (and the IT department at UT) that the recording was available online.
Other than that, my week was good. The water is exactly at my head as far as the homework goes, but I wasn't expecting my senior year to be easy, after all! And I'm sure I'll get more overwhelmed as the semester goes on, but at least this is the semester with a week-long break in the middle.
In related news... one of the grad schools I applied to has promised me a status update in two weeks. Wow! Also, yikes! I'm anxious to know, but only if it's good news, I guess. :) And, I applied for and interviewed for a job this week, and I'm expecting to hear back by the end of next week. Again, I only really want to know if it's good news. Bad news should stay as far away as possible, for the sake of all the chocolate, which I am sure to eat when stressed or depressed.
How was your week? Are you enjoying your weekend? What's your favourite chocolate?
