|« Conference is Under Way!!||Deutsche Weihnachten »|
I try not to complain about my schedule. (Though, I admit, I’ve done a good job venting about my finals if anyone asks.)
And I’ve been debating whether I should even mention such a thing here. But I feel compelled to warn everyone of the rigors of my load; I do not wish it upon anyone else.
For any current or future students, though I would recommend any of these classes to you, I do not recommend the following combination in one semester:
New Testament Studies (probably not Old Testament Studies either for that matter)
School and Community
Perhaps taken in sets of two or three would be bearable. But all 5 together! Spare yourself. I calculated, the week before Thanksgiving Break, 7 papers to write and 4 presentations to prepare before the end of the year. After Thanksgiving Break, I still had 7 papers to write and 4 presentations to give. To date it is down to 5 papers and 2 presentations (one of these was canceled.)
“How can you do it??” you ask…
I suppose I’ll survive just like every other semester. But I’m worn out and freaking out.
These next few days are huge. I’ll be writing a 10-page paper today, practicing for Deutsche Weihnachten tonight, and for a Christmas Pops concert with the Wichita Symphony Orchestra, plus handing in a couple papers and giving a presentation or two.
If I live to Tuesday, half the battle will be won. So really, though on the surface this looks like another venting session, I sincerely warn anyone approaching a semester of upper level credit classes:
Do not mix them all at once.
Best of luck as the year rounds down!
