I thank everyone for your comments on my last entry. It was interesting to see that people of many different political beliefs agreed with me. Though, I guess that shouldn’t have been too much of a surprise since the article I linked to got upmodded on Reddit – a community filled with enough liberals to hug a whole rain forest (haha, a tree hugging joke). I guess it’s nice to know that being open-minded doesn’t mean abandoning your beliefs.
I have traditionally posted on Thanksgiving about being thankful and what I am thankful for. I’ll admit, I forgot, but being thankful isn’t limited to one day of the year, so I won’t let that stop me from at least saying that I am very thankful for my fiancée, my family, my friends, and all of the other important people in my life, as well as our health, well-being, and all of the material things I have, both that I need and don’t need.
I didn’t go shopping on Black Friday like I used to do. There were no deals I really wanted besides the Dell Mini 9, and that was online. I already had about half of my Christmas shopping done anyway, and I got even more done on Sunday.
School is coming to a close for good. Getting a masters degree seems like a waste since my degree by itself is actually useful, and I have a feeling once that degree is in my hands, I’ll never want to sit in a classroom ever again. But hey, I may change my mind, so we’ll see.
This entire semester, my management professor has been referring to a “Wild Card” assignment. In our syllabus, the exact line used to describe the assignment is:
Students have the choice of earning 30 points through an additional project relevant to the course.
See that key word? “choice“. Now, reading that, you’d think that meant the assignment was a bonus assignment, right? Nope! Wrong! Just last week, our professor informed us that “choice” apparently means you don’t have to do it to pass, but you’ll lose 30 points if you don’t do it. Pretty much, it’s kind of like saying you don’t have to take an exam, but if you don’t, you’ll fail it.
To do this week:
Meet with Carolyn Bourne for my ISDS 3075 class
Make cheat sheet for my MGT 3830 class
Write “Wild Card” paper for my MGT 3830 class
-Write final case paper for my MGT 3830 class
Finish presentation for my ISDS 4125 class
Prepare for ISDS 4117 presentation
-Go to the registrar’s office
Go to the bookstore and buy my cap and gown
-Write my (last?) Tiger Weekly article
Oh, and I’m sure you figured this out, but I’ve implemented a new theme…again.
