The last few weeks have been INSANE! A bunch of things at work were coming due, a bunch of things at work were coming due. As you can see by my post a few weeks ago I felt completely overwhelmed. But I kept at it, and I'm surprised at how well things have turned out. The test I was so worried about I got a 98% on. I didn't think I would be able to write the minimum 10 pages I needed for a paper. I ended up with 16 pages. I had another test today (after a last week where I barely got any studying done for it) and got another good score. I also was able to get all the work stuff done to boot. Sometimes I wonder if a college degree isn't measuring my ability so much as my stubbornness, because that is all that got me through the last few weeks.
On a side note. The (step) contest at work ends tomorrow at midnight. Right now I'm leading by around 30,000 steps. So hopefully that means I'll win. I might put in some time on the treadmill over the next couple of days just to make sure. I've only taken 7205 steps for today.
In other news I got inducted to an collegiate honor society Phi Kappa Phi. They wanted 50 bux to join. I figured what the heck and I joined up. Today I got an invitation from another honor society Phi Theta Kappa. They want 80 bux. I may have been a sucker to join the first, I'm not sure I'm going to join the second. The 'requirements' to join aren't as strict and they want more money. I'm beginning to think these things are a racket to see how little street-smarts the book-smart students have. Any advice? I'm leaning towards -not- joining the second society.
