Getting Work Done

"Post it Time!" by 3oheme

oh, where to start?  I’ve been absent from this blog for the past week because:

  • I presented my thesis presentation this past Saturday. Essentially, a 12-minute speech/power point talking about my paper, and then answering questions. Despite the fact that I was sick and nervous, I managing to do well on the presentation and the grade. :)
  • I wrote an eight page paper on Othello for a class.
  • I wrote two three page papers for my French Film course.
  • I just emailed my professor my 25-page thesis paper.  PHEW.
  • And of course, I worked, interned, acted as president of two clubs, did various readings for my other classes, cleaned my house, and this morning I headed home for Easter break.

Sooo, I’ve been quite the busy bee.  and I have one (short) paper to finish up tomorrow, but after that I am looking forward to a relaxing Easter weekend and a  less stressful week next week, now that the bulk of my papers (and thesis) are finished.

But all I can say is, I have this INCREDIBLE feeling of RELIEF and ACCOMPLISHMENT after all that work!!

Writing in a Journal

Diary by Magic Madzik

I am a writer. It’s only natural, therefore, that I get my feelings out by writing in a journal or diary. I have been keeping a journal since age 10. There were sometimes in my life I wrote every single day, even multiple times a day.  But then there were the times in my life I didn’t write for a year or two, or I’d only write when I was upset or emotional.  Recently I’ve fallen back into the habit of writing in a journal. Sometimes writing helps me sort out my thoughts. Other times it actually confuses me more! But regardless, my diary provides an important outlet for feelings that I can’t or don’t feel like sharing with others and it also documents periods of my life that I can read over later.

It’s really embarrassing going back and reading entries from when I was a little kid, or even from a year or so ago. How could I have said that? What was I thinking? But I’m glad I have these notebooks–they’re like a window into my past.

I can get really creative with my diaries(especially when I was younger). I decorate the front cover with stickers, drawings, cutouts from magazines. I’d draw in them, write song lyrics, poetry, and short stories in them. While nowadays I don’t have the time to spend on being creative with a journal, I still tape tickets stubs and other little scraps of my life into the notebook pages. -ST

I’m interested in knowing your thoughts. Do you write in a journal? If you do, why? What do you write about? Are you embarrassed to read your entries over again?
