Hell Anyone? (Midterms)

“Mid-terms have now stretched to basically 5 or 6 weeks (almost half the semester), and consist of little more than hell. And, on top of it all, we have to go class and try to keep up on our daily class work and readings. I am not super-man! I am not even She-ra! I am Barney on the Super-Hero-meter right now. I am nothing but a lowly student trying to finish my fourth year of school…and all I want to do is go to the bar!!!” Kirsten Schubert

Hell Anyone? (Midterms)How Did I Get This Far Gone)

Kirsten’s wonderful rant reminded me of what it was like to be a student… so I made a special effort today to ease the pressure a little on my Advanced Technical Writing students. I don’t know whether it helped. If you need some help, or just a pep-talk, let me know — that’s my job! Now I have to take a huge stack of papers home so I can return them tomorrow, as I promised. I don’t want to go to a bar — I just want a good night’s sleep! This, too, shall pass…
