    STUDYING?
    I should be really excited about Thanksgiving. I am flying out to Tucson to have dinner with my boyfriend's dad and his wife. I love the desert and I haven't seen my boyfriend in 3 months, so I should be excited, right?

    Well I am...but on the other hand, I have to write 2 papers while I am gone. And when I come back, I have 3 exams in 2 days. And I should really start preparing for my Organic Final while I am gone...
    But whatever...this is the price of being a student...

    Just thought I'd share something completely irrelevant :p

    Take Care!

    Why not really put in some good effort Sat/Sun/Mon/Tues/Wed and then enjoy the desert and your boyfriend and his family for the whole break knowing you put in the time beforehand? --Trek

    U of I gets a full week of at Thanksgiving. And since I'm only taking 10 hours this semester, my schedule is...

    Sun: watch football

    Mon-Wed: sit on butt, watch bad daytime TV

    Thurs: watch football and eat two turkey dinners (one at each grandparents')

    Fri: Marathon sport shopping. Gotta get those Doorbusters sales at 6am. ;)

    Sat and Sun: get Christmas tree, put up decorations, bake cookies

    All in all, not a bad week. :)
     
  14. Woots,
    you guys at U of I are lucky to get a week long break. I don't understand how two sister schools, UIC and U of I, can be so different. We only have holidays from thursday-Sunday.

    well,
    Monday: Classes and Work on my lab report and paper and study for physics quiz.

    Tuesday: Classes and Work on my lab report
    Wednesday: classes are cancelled but I will be putting finishing touches and turn in my lab report and go home.

    Thursday-Sunday: (in any order)
    Relax with family, catch up in physics read two shakespear's plays, study for finals, go shopping (ughh!!) , and hang out with a friend, whom i haven't seen in a month.

    I am working a 12 hour shift on the ambulance (private comp.) on Thurs which will probably turn into 14 hours. Those dialysis centers never close ;) .
