It’s I’m Dead Week.

So this week is the week where for other schools it’s a time to prep for finals, but here at Butler it’s just another week to remind yourself that you don’t go to an easy school. It’s only Monday, and because of how much stuff I have due I already think that tomorrow is Wednesday. Yes, it’s that bad.

I know I tend to do this a lot. I mean I like to list things a lot, which is to show you that I’m crazy, but then also to remind myself the things I need to do this week. Today I’ve already completed my Spanish oral exam as well as work on my personal branding project, but if you don’t mind I would like to list again! Here goes nothing :)

12/10: Research Methods group assignment due , Group presentation for Indiana State Library
12/11: Women and Rock research paper due by 5 PM
12/12: Firebelly Marketing (my other job)
12/13: Spanish quiz

I realize this may not seem crazy, but then just wait until next week.

12/16: Graphic Design presentation (FINAL) self branding/ save the arts project
12/17: Research proposal paper due
12/18: Women and Rock FINAL due
12/19: Research Methods Test 2

It doesn’t seem a lot, it’s just that all of these take a lot of research/time, so I’ll be hiding out for a little bit. On top of all this I’m still trying to figure out Australia shenanigans out, because my counter part in Australia is taking forever to get back with me. Wish me luck everyone!

Almost Done

At a lot of other schools there is a week at the end of semester called Dead Week. This is the week where you are supposed to be preparing for finals and getting everything set for the stressful week that is ahead. Unfortunately, at Butler dead week doesn’t exist, so this week has been completely insane. Today at 215 PM I will finally be able to say that I am completely done with everything for this week, and I can relax. To say I am excited is an understatement.

Here is a little snapshot of what I had to do this week:
Promotional Writing 15-20 minute group presentation
Spanish 102 Cultural Project 20 minute group presentation
Arts Administration 10 minute presentation
Design and Production online portfolio
Global and Historical Studies research paper 5-6 pages

All this on top of still completely assignments for the classes, as well as trying to figure out my life with summer jobs, and balancing sorority craziness. Thankfully the company I am talking with for my possible summer job is extremely understanding. To explain the sorority craziness, this week is not only our philanthropy week but also our senior week. This means that we have to do a lot more than usual, which is totally fine besides it is the craziest week ever. However, I am extremely excited for our philanthropy event as well as senior week. I love the seniors and will miss them so much!

Tomorrow expect to see a blog of complete excitement from me. By then I will have been probably a complete 24 hours stress free, that is until Sunday when I realize I need to start studying for finals. Good luck to all the students out there! We are almost done! Here’s a video of how I look during finals week.

Dead Week

Dead week at Butler is never dead week. It usually means a time for projects and any other random thing the professor would love to give you. This week it seems like everyday I had something due. It gets kind of difficult to keep up.

This past Tuesday I had something due in every class or needed to do something to prepare for every class. Not to sound ridiculous but literally every class I wanted to skip, but couldn’t because there was something holding me back each and every time.

My Tuesday:
PCA 241
: Had to go to class because we had to practice our performance that we had to give on Thursday.
SW 266: Presenting my group’s public service announcement to the class.
COM 101: Had homework to turn in
SP 101: In class writing assignment to due

That may not seem bad but when this week at other schools is called dead week, here at Butler it may as well be called pre finals week where they give us more work than they have ever before during the semester in one week. The only positive to this week was that the class I have Monday, Wednesday, and Friday got canceled Wednesday and today, which means last night was my last class for the semester and now it’s on to FINALS!

I’m not extremely worried about finals and I should be all done by Tuesday. Good luck to everyone is struggling. We are almost done!
