As of next week, there's only 4 weeks left this quarter! My Managing Informational Systems professor brought that up today. If that wasn't enough of a reminder of how short the quarter was, the classes handed in their midterm exams also. I'm guess this isn't going to impact me as much until its the week before finals. It always happened. That means most if my September will be full of cramming and feverishly going over all the notes I have written.
Last week, I was barely in any of my classes. Wednesday's giant storm (the one with the Brooklyn tornado) caused my town to be completely underwater. All the buses and trains were shut down so I couldn't make it to school. The next day, my little sister got a fever so I had to stay home and take care of her. (I live with my mom and its next to impossible for her to get off work.) This week, I swore I would make it all my classes on time. Well, today, I got to use the car so I figured "hey! i'll leave at 7:30" because it only takes 15 to get to school by car. Well, its 7:35 by the time I hit the highway. As soon as I get to route 3, I see the biggest traffic jam I've ever driven in. I swear, it was going an inch a minute. I got to Berkeley at 9:30. My class ends at 9:45. At that point, I was angry and decided to call a friend in Montclair and grab some breakfast. I came back for my 12:45 class on time but I was still angry about the traffic.
Tonight, I'm getting everything ready so I can get up, get ready and get going tomorrow. There is no way I'm missing any more classes. Noooo way. I'm already at the point where if I'm absent again in any of my classes, my grade will be affected.
This cold my sister passed on to me isn't helping either.
