Listed on the Syllabus

Essays, reports, labs, presentations…all of them piling up right before the final exams (or in some cases midterms…if you’re lucky). All of these things popping up outta no where!

“They’re listed right here on the syllabus.”

“Where?”

“Page two. Here, where it says, ‘November such-and-such, Assignment Due.'”

“Aw…yah…I see it now. Yah…it’s there. It didn’t just magically appear outta thin air. But I didn’t get the outline for the assignment till last week. I barely had any time.”

“You had time to go and grab poutine.”

“Yah but–”

“And you had time to see Doctor Strange.”

“Yah but–”

“And you had time to order a pizza and play video games until midnight.”

“Yah but I–”

“You have no excuse. You just procrastinated. You put it off too long. And now, you’re stressed out.”

“Wish we could turn back tiiiiiiime…to the good old daaaaays…”

“Shut up! No singing! Sit you butt down and do your work!”

“But I’m hungry.”

“Yah…me too. Let’s go get food.”

“But…I have to do my assignment.”

“Eh…you’ve got till Thursday. There’s plenty of time!”

“It’s Tuesday….”

“Just…pull an all-nighter.”

“Last time I did that…I didn’t do so well on my assignment.”

“Do you sit around and complain all day? Jeez, I’m leaving.”

“Okay bye….”


The line, “Wish we could turn back time to the good old days,” is from Stressed Out by Twenty One Pilots.

Anyway, this dialogue just sort of happened all on its own. Hope it made you chuckle a little. I have a habit of inserting song lyrics into actual conversations I have with my siblings…and myself. Since this dialogue is me talking to myself. Happens a lot…yet, why question my sanity?

AHH! Lot of Homework

Well I’ve got a lot of homework to do this month. Busy, busy.

I am working on a fun little project. Well two actually. If the one project isn’t finished by the time its due I’ll post it online. Its just something extra that I wanted to do for bonus marks but with all the essays, books and assignments I have I’m not sure if I’ll get it finished in time. I’d love to though. I rarely get to hand in my drawings for a project.

I may or may not have my children’s book reviewed along with the rest of my creative writing portfolio. I’ve got a lot of material but its hard putting together eight pieces to showcase. I haven’t done the illustrations for the children’s book yet so that means I may or may not be staying up till odd hours drawing tonight and tomorrow. We’ll see.

Hope you all have a great rest of your week and for anyone else inching towards exams or with a ton of assignments…or just with a lot on their plate right now, we’ll get through this. One step at a time.

Stay golden,

R.

It’s Been a While…

So…it’s been a while since I’ve done any blogging…thankfully I don’t have to say the same thing about writing.

Recently, I’ve been preparing myself for the next chapter of my life: university. I’ve actually started to look into the area where I might be going to school, and I’ve been checking out a lot of the different activities so that I might get familiar with the community.

I figure, if you’re going to be living somewhere for 4 to 6 years, you should know a little bit about it.

Writing has been going very well lately. I can say I’ve made some good progress. I actually did a little experimentation…not to sure if I like it, but I can change it when I go back and edit.

Since the school year is coming to an end, I’ve been getting hammered with assignments, and tests (which is why I haven’t blogged in a while), and I honestly am at the point where all I want to do is sleep, eat, run and write. That’s it. Nothing else…well, okay I don’t like strict routines, so I guess I’ll throw in a couple of surprises here and there.

I finally got a job interview…I’m supposed to find out if I got the job today, however…I haven’t heard back yet. I hope I do by the end of the week. I really need the money for school. I personally think that I did well in that interview. I answered things confidently, and as honestly as I could without sugar coating or motor mouthing anything….

That was a funny way to put it. In other words, I didn’t make myself look like an idiot.

Well, I hope that I can get back to blogging more often.

If I get the job, I’ll have a lot to talk about, since I love this kind of work.

Anyway, I hope that everyone has a great rest of the week.

If you’re here with me in Canada, get out and enjoy the beautiful weather before it’s gone.

 

Till next time,

Orion.
