We're down to the last week before finals, and that means quarter projects are coming due. Fortunately, I only have one actual final (which I can take at home on the computer), but two portfolios and a poster presentation I have to turn in as well. And, of course, they're not done yet because I procrastinate like crazy.

I'm going to be OK, though. The Captain has been a real blessing through this. I actually get more homework done when I am at his place than when I am home by myself -- he won't let me slack off and go into la la land, cracking the whip on me to finish my stuff before playtime. It's actually working. He's like the disciplinarian I never had growing up.

He talked to my mother last week, and apparently Mom told him "Kevyn isn't very good at getting things done on his own." Too true, Mom, I just didn't know you had noticed! It seems I made the right choice in seeking out a captain to catch my wild wind in his sails.

Still, in the next 8 days, I have to get the following done:

JOUR 340 History of Mass Media:
  • 1 annotated bibliography (50% done)
  • 1 poster presentation on "Rosie the Riveter" in the media (40% done)
  • 1 textbook to finish reading (80% done)
ENG 351 Fiction Writing:
  • 3 stories to edit (0% done)
  • 1 "stranger comes to town 2-4 page story to finish (50% done)
  • 1 Conflict only through setting 2-4 page short story (0% done)
  • 1 Character voice through dialogue 2-4 page shot story (0% done)
  • 1 novel (Cloud Atlas) to finish reading (40% done)
  • 1 2-4 page short story continuing a thread in Cloud Atlas (0% done)
  • 1 unknown Cloud Atlas assignment that he hasn't given us yet, but will probably give us on Tuesday or Thursday
  • 1 major re-write of my "Tigers are Predators" story (10% done, and this will mostly write itself)
  • ...and all of this ENG 351 work will need to be compiled into a portfolio due a week from Tuesday.
ENG 462 Grant Writing:
  • 4 pages of boilerplate grant materials for our project. Fortunately, because of circumstances beyond our control, the actual grant itself isn't going to be written, but we still have to present the project with a mess of grant materials for them to use going forward.


It's gonna be a busy busy week. And, I still need to register for classes for spring!
