Week In Review: A Day Late & A Dollar Short

My apologies for not posting this yesterday, as is my routine.  I had a plethora of coursework to do, and despite having taken out a chunk of that, I'm still slavin' away today with it.  But I didn't want to leave this go any longer than necessary, so without further ado:
Oh my gosh Fitz, I don't even know what to say XD

As of today, it's finals week, guys.
It was all of last week as well, but this is the real deal.  I had three essays for one class.  I had so many Spanish assignments I had a dream about speaking Spanish.  My psychology-statistics class was easy this week, and it's never easy.  Which means the final, obviously, is going to be treacherous.

And this week, I have at least 4 exams, 1 term essay, and some other assignments to wrap up...and the studying that comes along with it.  And this week happens to be the same week that I have CPR training re-certifications for work, the farrier coming out to trim the horses' hooves, and play practices are starting again for that 150th anniversary play I keep mentioning (which is only one month and four days away....)

*Clears throat*

Current Projects: Over the weekend, I've been writing a short AU story with my writing friend (here's a link to her blog) and through the week, I worked a little bit on Something New as well as my yet-untitled manuscript that I need to finish before August....and that's about it.  I had absolutely no time for writing this week....

Currently Reading: Still that same Star Wars novel.  I'm gonna attack it when I'm done with finals, I am....I've been dying to read it.  I'm also going to read Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, which was school-assigned but I found our selections to be pretty interesting, so I'm keeping it. 

Current Bible Verse: Which of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?...But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.  (Matthew 6:27, 33-34 NIV)  It's important to remember that worrying about something won't help at all.  Most of the time, it only makes things worse.  Stay chill, my friends. 

This week was also rather interesting because, frankly, weird and mildly inconvenient things happened.  I attempted to apply for a college scholarship with some articles I've written for my college's newspaper, only to find that the website no longer had the ones I wanted to use on it --just the ones I wanted were gone--and the archiving website I'd used recently to save the pages had, apparently, failed to save them.  This is why you save everything on USBs or whatever your preferred mode of backup is.  *sigh*

I've also been having some more personal issues with writing for their newspaper, as I have hardly been able to contact a pretty important person there this semester.  I don't know the exact circumstances, but I was more than ready to quit writing there as a result of it--but I recently learned that the situation has been resolved for next semester and I'll also be getting more articles to copy-edit, which is fantastic. I also told the advisor for the paper that I wanted to edit as much as possible since I'm considering opening up an editing business once I graduate, and he offered to help me with that, so I'm thankful.  It seems as though a little perseverance goes a long way (either that or bullheadedness, but I prefer the term 'perseverance').

Finally, a reminder to get your eight hours of sleep in.  This week, I applied for a writing and editing position at an up-and-coming entertainment website (around the same time that I contacted the newspaper's advisor with some concerns about that issue I mentioned in the last paragraph).  But let me tell you, writing a cover letter at 1 A.M. when you're final-studying-tired, you have an important phone call to make in the morning that you're freaking out over, and you're awake waiting for your load of clothes to finish in the dryer (and then your fatigued brain convinces you that the dryer seemed way too hot and dear goodness, will it burn the house down?) probably wasn't a good idea.  I don't even remember what I told them.  I do remember looking up reference links from my time as a columnist at Nerd HQ, but that's it.  So don't write semi-important cover letters at 1 A.M., guys. 

Anyway, enough of my mindless drabbles.  It's time to get down to business and write my paper on modernism...

How are you guys?  Anyone doing finals this week?  If anyone's already done with school, what's freedom like?

Week In Review: From Zero to Sixty

I wish I would have thought about taking a picture of my class to-do list this week before I started crossing things off, because it totally filled an entire copy page...with small handwriting. But the important thing is that it's done with.  Mostly. For another week.


Currently reading: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comics and Star Wars: The Last Jedi by Michael Reaves.  (Non-canon.) I'm also reading Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, partly for school and partly out of interest due to the Thor movies by Marvel (although it's Loki I'm reading up on). 

Current projects: My Compass Home, formatting A Town Nativity for publication, and I'm getting ready to start play practices for my church's 150th anniversary play.  I honestly don't know how many words I wrote this week, but between this week and last, I filled half of a composition book and then wrote on the computer some as well, if that counts for anything. 

Current Bible verse: Peace I leave with you, …

Blog Tour: Review of "Beyond Her Calling" by Kellyn Roth!

Hey everyone! Instead of the boring "writing tips" post that I had planned for you guys this week, I am excited to be reviewing Kellyn Roth's new release, Beyond Her Calling, as part of the her blog tour. This was a beautiful book and I loved pretty much every part of it. Let's get to it, then!
Beyond Her Calling "At twenty, Ivy Knight feels as if she hasn't accomplished anything of worth. Her life stretches on before her, empty and pointless. Though her faith in God and her mental abilities have strengthened, she still doubts herself. Does God have a purpose for a socially awkward, often confused and frightened young woman?
Jordy McAllen has just returned to Scotland after his education in London. Though he has accomplished a lot for a farm lad such as himself, he fears that what everyone has always said about him may be true: he won't really make a good doctor. Determined to prove himself, Jordy snatches up the opportunity to become the doctor in …
