So week 5 was a bit stressful, I had a bunch of papers due and not very much free time to do so because of working. I knew summer classes were going to be a lot, but I took on too much with work, I’m just glad I survived and hopefully my grades reflect the amount of work I did put in, along with the 3 all-nighters I pulled just to get all my work done throughout the 5 weeks. (more…)
Week 4, I’m going crazy. Had to pull an all nighter to get all of my homework done, working 46 hours wasn’t a great choice, but I got to look at the pluses, money for NYC. My friend has a sublet from July 1st to August 1st, so this girl is going to spend a month in NYC, and hopefully if I can get a full time position, I will be staying. I’ve already started looking for jobs, even though I’ve been looking for well over a year, I’m going into over drive. I’m super excited to see my friends and old roommates and just be back in New York, even though it may not be permanent. (more…)
So I apologize for being a slacker when it comes to updating my blog, I’m going to try to go back and fill you all in, on the last couple weeks, so I will be posting a couple of blogs in a row. Week 3, summer session is flying by, it’s crazy. I’m really loving one of my classes, and the other one, the professor is clearly new to this online teaching thing, so they’re a bit disorganized and that sort of bugs me. I also agreed to work a lot of hours, which is great in terms of money, but doesn’t leave a lot of time left for homework or sleep. (more…)
And we’re back, better than ever. Summer is in full swing. Students are in class, people are outside, and life continues to move on. Since the last time I wrote I have experienced some of Buffalos great offerings. I have taken in a Bisons game, which they unfortunately lost. I have volunteered down in Orchard Park. I have gone to my first “Thursday at the Square.” And I’m also back in class.
This past week has been a pretty great one. I worked down in Elma on Monday and I worked at the grad school on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I have class every Monday and Wednesday from 6-9 PM so that makes those days pretty long. I am taking an organizational behavior class this summer session. It has been pretty interesting and the professor always provides real world examples which helps keep lessons relevant. I do have to finish up a paper to turn in Monday but other than that, everything has been great.
I went to Thursday at the Square last night for the first time. I don’t go to a lot of concerts but since I live close by and they are free I figured I might as well. Blues Traveler was the band last night. I can’t name a single song that they perform but I had a good time nonetheless. I was actually only there for the last 15 or so minutes of it but there was a good crowd and energy. After that I just hung out with some people and then called it a night.
Summer has been off to a good start and I am looking for it to continue. Hope you guys and gals are enjoying it as well.
