Just submitted my final research paper for my third semester of grad school. Three more to go. Now I am going to sleep until noon tomorrow.
|I DID IT!!! 50,149 and I am stopping here! I will keep going with the story in January when I start edits and re-writes. Still don't have an ending so I still have motivation to keep writing!!!|
|It's Friday night, my space bar is sticking, and I am less than 5,000 away from winning NaNoWriMo! LET'S WRITE!!!!|
|Thanks, you anonymous prankster for distracting me from NoNaWriMo... |
Time to get back to work!
|Another late night staying up until after midnight trying to finish a grad school assignment before it's due. |
Though I cannot discourage anyone from going back to school or going on to grad school, I can honestly say, as a teacher, you better be fully committed to it.
Also, I know the importance of feeding oneself and family, but working full-time and even just doing grad school part time... nope... can't recommend it at all. I'm halfway there... I hope I can survive until December 2020.
On the bright side, I finished it on Saturday night (because I can't really do school work during the week unless it must be done by Thursday or Friday) so I can just focus on writing for NaNoWriMo on Sunday afternoon and evening! Hopefully, I can catch up and be finished before the next research paper is due the first week of December.
| I just realized that the last week of November is a slow week in my grad school class. There is only one assignment that must be turned in and in the class, the reading might as well be optional because we don't use it for anything. |
I wonder if my professor knew that was the last week of NaNoWriMo and that some of us would be rushing to catch up in time to win so he made it an easier week? It is a writing program after all.
Either way, THANK YOU! I just need to finish the big assignment for this week and I am off to catch up on my NaNoWriMo word count!
