Sweetie, I hear ya. BUT you’re in the home stretch!

A couple of thoughts: would your job allow you to reduce your time by say, 20%? Could you afford that? And is there anyone that you’d trust to help you with your DIY projects? What about craft time with said trusted people in your spare time?

Don’t worry…it won’t be like this forever!

I’m the same way. I hand-polish my kitchen floor. And um, I just redid all my notes for my midterm Friday. Re-writing helps me imbed it into my brain =]

Make lots and lots of lists! Oh, and be warned that after you get your BA, keep in mind you may want to go to grad school so it starts all over again! LOL. Oh, it’s so nice to JUST work =]

You totally have senioritis. Embrace it =]

@myraG, i’m always amazed at how much EASIER grad school is than undergrad.

Weird. It’s just nice to put that check next to your name finally =]

I am feeling you!!! Working 50 hour weeks, going to school, planning a wedding, trying to have a social life, clean house, stay sane…. It’s soooo hard! My wedding is way before I graduate, so at least one thing is out of the way soon, but I hear you on being over it, already!

@Myra:   I think we may be twins. lol.  Not only am I a perfectionist as well,  I will have been an undergrad student for 6.5 years by the time I graduate this May (HOPING I graduate this May)!  I’ve been working full time at a great job for 3 years that I was so lucky to get without a degree…so it has obviously delayed my graduation.  (That, and switching majors like 4 times)!  I totally feel your pain, I just want to come home, do fun wedding planning things, make dinner, watch TV with Fiance, and maybe go to the gym as well.  It’s almost here though, just gotta hang in there!

@alishadhs4, Well, i was a chemistry and metallurgical engineering undergrad student….i’m not an industrial engineering/MBA grad student in a program made for the “professional engineer” so it’s geared towards those of us who work at least 40 hours a week and work is a priority over school.

I think it just depends on the program =]

I’ve heard this a few times though…mostly b/c professors stop trying to weed you out or “test you” and work with you more. It’s mroe research based, open book tests, etc. They expect you to utilize the knowledge you have in front of you, not memorize it all

Working isn’t that great either!  I’d rather be back in college than be in grad school and working!  🙂

Ejs…thanks for the advice. My undergrad is in sociology and that is what my masters will be in also, I am really interested in research. I wanted to do a masters of social work, but theres only one school in colorado that offers it at about 100 miles north from where I live sot heres no way I could commute, so I have changed my goals a bit…but either way, even though soc is a little more broad, a lot of jobs are ok with any “behavior science” masters….im just so nervous about the thesis!! ugh
