And wow. Just wow. It looks so overwhelming, yet so not, when committed to paper.

This list contains all the major things I have to do between now and 9 May 2009.

* Senior seminar draft due 7 April (this time for real)
* Senior seminar presentation 14 April
* SpARC presentation 22 April
* Senior seminar paper due 28 April
* 490 paper due 30 April (2nd reading day)
* nonfiction personal essay
--first draft due 14 April by 3pm
--second draft due 21 April by 3pm
--third draft due 26 April (Sunday) by 3pm
* nonfiction portfolio (due 5 May, the end of the exam period for seniors)
--final draft of personal essay due
--all the work I've done in the class also due with any substantially revised works marked as such, along with a reflective essay. I know I'm revising at least one work.
* French oral exam (toward the end of classes or exam period, date to be determined)
* complex final exam, to be taken during exam period at a time of my choice
* Script Frenzy (now through 30 April)
* that oh-so-wonderful job search
* complex problem sets. I'm guessing there are about three left, not including the one I haven't started yet due Wednesday but should have since Monday's seminar day.

Also, in theory there's supposed to be a second French test. Whether this will actually happen or not is to be determined.

Wow. I'm really glad I got my French presentation out of the way in March. The rest of the class can HAVE April. I don't want this madness.

Reading this and your response to my "Art of Madness" entry, I thought you might be able to appreciate this poem/speech by Marianne Williamson. The ever-wise <lj-user="zincii"> gave it to me a few weeks ago when I was waffling with the idea of jumping, just as you are now. It's fitting:

<i>Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

—Marianne Williamson</i>

Re: I thought you might appreciate this.
That is beautiful and just what I needed right now.

Thank you.
