“The End Is Near”
By Terrence Cain
Well, this is it folks. The semester has official come to an end as of next Thursday for me. I’ve got finals every day next week and lots of cramming into my noodle to do before then. This semester has been one heck of a ride for me. A lot of late night cram sessions, sometimes up till 1, 2, or even 3 am with an 8 am class looming just around the corner. It’s definitely been one of the toughest things I’ve put myself through. One thing though, was it all worth it?
Of course it was all worth it. Yeah, this semester kicked my rear but good and I had many sleepless nights, but it sure does beat working some dead end job that I hate. I made a promise to myself long ago that I would never again be a miserable soul and I plan on keeping that promise. You should think about that yourself while you are in college too.
If you feel like college is just too tough, think how much tougher it could be on you working a job you hate on a salary that doesn’t pay you diddly squat. Of course you don’t have to have a degree to get paid well, but then you’d be working a job in the hot son or cold frigid air with almost no days off on an eighteen hour schedule. Having a degree in a job you want will help you get what you want, so just hold on. It won’t be that much longer until you’re done.
This week was review week so not much I can say about my classes. And yeah, I know something huge happened in the news this week but I’m not going to talk about it because it’s already been done and said exhaustively. All I am going to say is that I’m glad we finally got him after ten long years and I hope that this is a changing point for all our troops abroad and that they’ll be home very soon.
Well that’s all I have to say for this week. Study and do your best on the finals. I’ve got loads to do myself so I will see you all next week for my final post until the fall. This is Howard College’s Blogging Machine, over and out!
Peace - Terrence
