School Daze

This summer has been a complete blur.

I can't believe it...both of my professors decided to not have a real final. In Ethics, we just have to do our final group presentation and turn in our papers...yipeeeee!

However, the work I have to finish for Econ between now and August 12th is more than enough to make up for that. We have a major presentation next Saturday, plus a case analysis based on that presentation which is also supposed to summarize everything we've learned this semester. That should be enough, but nope...we also have 2 essays to answer - one macro & one micro - that will be posted for us by Tuesday. Plus, our 15 page take home "test" from last week. Oh joy! Luckily, my take home test is over 1/2 done.

I am getting in a run and hopefully a ride on my borrowed bike tomorrow. Because after that, I think I might be way to busy to even think about running/riding. Sigh.

But, then I have 2 GLORIOUS WEEKS OFF instead of only one! Wooohooo!!!!!!

By the way, I went to Bike Barn today to pick up helmets for me and the kiddo. OMG, now I see why Lisa had trouble picking out a bike! I looked at various models and have definintely caught the bug. I tried not to look too much, because I promised the hubby that I would be true to our budget and wait until we get our bonuses at November. It seems like an eternity away, but I know it will be here before I know it. One thing I realized is that I have a ton to learn about bikes! Aluminum, carbon fiber, components...don't even get me started on all the gears! I have to admit, it's all a bit intimidating.

There is so much to learn about bikes it's just amazing!! I also couldn't believe how much it all ended up costing. Wowzer! I am really happy now though! Let me know if I can help at all!

Is it "ethical" not to have a final exam. I feel you must petition your professor to do the right thing...
