Almost there!

Hello and welcome back to Sigma Nu Zeta Omicron. We are near the end, but there’s still a lot to do.

Although I’m more than ready for summer break, I still need to take care of several things. The first of them being finals, I have three of them, from which two will be at 7:30 a.m. I really don’t know why, I don’t even have classes at 7:30, I hope I will be on good conditions to take these exams. I will have to change my schedule to be well rested and focused for them. Still, even though they are the most important of the obstacles towards summer, they are the last of them, I have other things to worry first.

I will put it on order of how they will come, or at least the order I have to do, submit or give them. First I have a midterm on next Wednesday, for my pre-calculus class, it is supposed to cover few subjects, but I tend to take a lot of time in the problems and time have become one of my biggest enemies on exams. Then, I will have my second and last speech for my rhetoric class. I did good on my last speech, but this one is harder and longer, so I will have to focus more and work hard on it in order to do well. Nevertheless, just like the first one, I’m going to talk about something that I really like, so it should be more fun to work on it than any other assignment just because of my engagement with the topic.  Finally, I have to submit a final project for my fiction writing class, which I hope I will be able to do fairly fast, and hopefully I will have a good time doing it too.

Now, those are all academic related. One last thing that I need to take care of is moving my stuff out of my room, because I will be on a different room next semester. I can’t take everything back home, unfortunately, so I rented a storage room with a friend on Coralville, our neighbors. I will have to move my stuff there and this can be a little bit of an annoyance, but still is something I have to do.

However, those are all thing to come, we can still talk about what happened this week. On Tuesday I got the news that I did great on my job interview and I got an offer to work as a student lead on Hillcrest dining hall, which I accepted. I think is good to know that your work have been recognized and so you are promoted to a higher position, I really look forward to it. Wednesday I register for classes, I only had trouble with the creativity class, because all seats were reserved, so I found a good substitute for it, introduction to philosophy, I look forward to that. On Thursday I had a Midterm for my chemistry class, and I think I did fairly good on it, I just have to wait for the official results, since it’s a curved class, to be sure. Also on Thursday, I went to the spring sale the Hawk Shop is making, I found great deals to buy a gift for my grandparents and a sweatshirt for myself, so yes! I finally brought a UI sweatshirt, but the size betrayed me, when I tried it on, it was too big, so I guess I will only be using it indoor.

Well, I guess that’s all, apart from everything I have to do things are going pretty fine, I hope you all are having a good week too. See you next week!
