Wine wine wine!
I should be writing a paper right now, but instead I’m watching the Blind Side and prepping for football party food. I should really just give up ever trying to do schoolwork on Saturdays during football season.

I don’t drink, however I am munching down on my pizza and animal crackers and on the Bee avoiding the insane amount of stuff I have to do between now and Monday!

I’m not much into wine, but X-Rated and 7 would be nice. I’m watching Water For Elephants and munching on wings and mozzarella sticks with my chocolate lab. =} One of my psych textbooks showed up two weeks late, so I’m 3 chapters behind in the reading. I have a critique to be doing for the same class on an article I haven’t read yet. I have until next Monday to get it done. =p

Ok ok ok.
I wrote Term Paper #2 today.
It’s a group paper, but because my group consists of asshats, I wrote it alone. 15-20 pages.
Term Paper #1 was due last week, and we have Term Paper #3 due next week. (And yes, I have spoken to the instructor about the issue.)
I’m freaking slaving away at this paper…typing for hours…my ass is falling asleep in the chair…my mouth is dry…I finish it, FINALLY…print it…go to class to turn it in….
AND HE DECIDES TO PUSH BACK THE DEADLINE 2 weeks.
That’s how my day went.

I HATE group work. UGH. Why do professors insist on doing this in a college classroom? I have worked in the professional world on task forces, but you know what? It’s no where near the group work in the class room. The last group I was in was composed of 4 jocks. One of whom stole my research, and read it word for word in the oral presentation… passing it off as his own. I WORKED SO HARD ON IT!!! Grr.
Anyway, this isn’t about me, this is about you. Good for you for feeling accomplished, and having it out of the way 2 weeks early. 🙂 Now you can smooth sail for a little while, eh? That’s a bright side.

Mmm yes the joys of college. I had a nice “game plan” of all the work/studying I was going to accomplish tonight, but I had a reeeeeeally long day and finished exactly 0% of what I planned to do. Go me!
Ugggghhhhh group work. Don’t even get me started.. so sorry your group leaves you to write all that!

I’m also avoiding writing up a short paper to watch Fresh Prince and chat on the ‘bee.
At least I got a substantial amount of reading done earlier.

Hey we can vent together! When I did implore one of the guys in my group for his work, you know what he sent me? Pictures of employees of the company.
I said, “Guy. What the fuck am I supposed to do with this?”
Him: “Uh, I dunno. I guess I thought it could take up space or something.”
Me: “Uh, well, gee, you’re a fucking idiot. It’s a SYSTEMS ANALYSIS, not a PICTURE SHOW.”
But someone stealing my work?! Oh my whole body would have caught on fire. I would have lost my mind!! I hope you served him a big, steamy pile of Jules Justice!
I am glad the second paper is done, but I have a presentation due on Monday, a test, and the 3rd term paper all for this class. So no rest for the weary. 🙁
It’s okay…I’m going to screw them royally in peer reviews! Best buds forever! 😀

If you have this via email, I’d submit the correspondence to the professor to show the disparate amount of work this turd submitted. He doesn’t deserve to sponge off of your grade.
I was seething at that one guy, but after his presentation was done he knew I wasn’t happy. It didn’t change what our professor heard from him though… grr… I hope he remembers me for a long time. Chances are he won’t.

Oh man.. peer reviews. I once had a group member do NOTHING on a major project. I mean, didn’t even respond to emails/texts about it for a MONTH. (The other member did a little, but I really did the entire thing). He came up to me the day we were writing peer reviews and got right in my face and in a really low voice goes, “If you give me a negative review, don’t think for a second I won’t write you a terrible one back. I mean it.”
Some people have nerve..

I definitely set up a personal meeting with the professor last week and let him know what’s going on. He told me he’s had this guy as a student before, and he knows he’s piss-poor. He said to just keep doing what I’m doing, and he won’t tell the guy about our meeting, but it will show up in his grade. I told him I just want to graduate this semester, and he said that won’t be a problem. Huzzah!
…well, it may be a problem if the work load kills me before the class ends. :/
I would have written the most smart-ass review with a big fat 0% and as I’m handing it to the teacher, give him a thumbs up. Then as I’m walking passed him, whisper really low, “Suck my balls. I mean it.”
Hahaha I’m terrible.

This seems to be a recurring weekend theme for me. This time I demand pizza and beer. Not anatomy & physiology flashcards.
