I'm in the middle of a late night homework session.

Well, it's not too late right now, but I have a feeling that it's going to end up being pretty late.


Because I have a mega load of catch up work to do.

And the new puppy, who needs love and attention, is impeding upon homework time. I understand that she needs to be played with. I understand that she's still being potty trained and therefore prone to accidents. BUT. I. HAVE. HOMEWORK.

My parents have been hounding me about my grades (I brought my economics grade up by TEN POINTS), yet at the same time they're like, "You need to keep your room clean" "You need to spend more time with your brother" "Stop being holed up in your room" "Pay more attention to the dog"

And I'm like, I. HAVE. HOMEWORK. And tests. And 2 major projects. GIMME A BREAK PEOPLE.

And then when I talk about all the reading that I have to do for the next day they're all like, "Well, that's what it's going to be like in college."

And I'm like, ACTUALLY, I'll have a syllabus in college. And I won't have more than five classes a day back to back. Also, I'll have more time to read because I WON'T HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF A PUPPY.

So here I am. 11:47 p.m. With a math review to finish, an economics worksheet to start, an english project and paper to finish, and an environmental science project and paper to start.

On the bright side?

I look good in a hard hat.
I have no idea what face I'm making in the above picture...


  1. So, why are you in a hardhat? Actually, multiple hardhats.

    This time of year is just a terrible time for homework and such. Everyone is busy, everyone is stressed, and teachers are really putting the weight on.

  2. Well it's an odd upside to find but there it is. You can only do so much.

  3. Honestly, I feel like college is entirely different than high school... instead of spending 8 straight hours holed up in school, you have time in between classes and everything. Not to say it will be easier by any means, but... you know. Nice hat. :)

  4. @Drew- I went on a field trip for my Environmental Science class to a local coal mine and energy plant!

  5. Yes, I think college will be better. A set syllabus and more time to either immediately work on problem sets after class or carry on a discussion. It will be grand.

    Until then, you can do it. Only a few more months!
