I am a student

And  man-oh-man am I a student right now. Hour upon hour I am clacking away at a keyboard, cranking out 10 page papers like they're nothing. Final exams have really gotten me down lately, and it seems they just keep coming.

I'm only a few days away from the end of my second year at University, and I cannot wait for the finish line. This summer is going to be a ton of fun (finances permitting) and I just can't stay focused on my exams for more than a few minutes at a time.

Within the last week I've had an exam due for my Supreme Court Case-Law class... I've had to speak in front of an audience of hundreds for my public speaking final (Well, essentially a final, it was actually an award I had been nominated for, but didn't get)... I'm almost done with a comparative analysis of Canada v. The USA... Once that's done I've got just one more paper on the Constitution and Criminal due process and I'm home free!

Anyway, a little more background on myself and my current college living conditions. I'm living in a three person apartment with my Senior brother and my freshman brother. We all get along very well, and love it up here at college, but just like anyone else right about now, we're ready to just go home!

My next blog post will be less of an introduction and more of an analysis of either a section of one of my "I am..."'s, or an observation of mine in one of those categories.

  17. Relax and try not to let things stress you out. Take thing one at a time, and try not to procrastinate and you will be okay. One step at a time.
