I am not feeling too great. All I can think about is everything I need to pay for this summer. First of all, I need to pay my share of the AX AA table & save money for hotel & food, find something to get for my dad's birthday [which is not that big a deal, except it's super hard to shop for him], and most of all I need a ton of money for all my Maid of Honor duties. Y'see, my best friend is getting married this October, and I am one of 3 Maids of Honor. So I need to buy my own bridesmaid dress, jewelry, shoes, and nail & hair service, buy a bridal shower gift, and pay my way through the bachelorette party, which will be a day at Universal Studios Hollywood and an evening at City Walk, plus going out to breakfast that morning.
I know I really shouldn't be freaking out about this since I won't be dealing with it for a few months, but I'm worried about school too. This is my final semester and will be graduating next month. I need at least a C in all of my classes this semester in order to receive my gen ed AA degree. I'm more worried about geology and Latin-American history. I haven't done well in the tests/quizzes we've taken so far, and I have a presentation coming up for Latin-American history on Carnaval in Brazil. BY MYSELF. I'm so anti-social with my classmates that I'm terrified to ask if anyone would like to work with me on the presentation. I'm even planning on making the entire presentation in a video so that I won't have to stand and speak in front of the class. I think I'm more worried about that class than geology; geology isn't too bad. I just need to study more. Mexican-American history is a cinch because all that I'm graded on is my attendance, 2 research papers, and 2 movie reviews. THAT'S IT. No tests and no quizzes. Of course ceramics is simple; all of the assignments are to make certain pots, and in the semester there are only 2 quizzes and one written final. At this point I only need to throw/sculpt a pitcher, a bottle, and my final project.
Sorry about the stress rant. I feel I've been put under more pressure since Panda's passing. God, I miss him so much. Anyway, I think I might close commissions so that I can properly price stuff.
