It hit me

Between work, school, family and getting ready for the munchkin, I have way too much to accomplish and not enough time to accomplish it. This simple fact may result in my 3rd B in a grad school class...yeah, call me a slacker. I hope that's not the case, but while everyone else has until May 10th to complete their semester, I am trying to wrap everything up by April 29th. I hate it when I feel like I have so much going on that none of it is being done as well as I would like. The whole mediocrity thing bugs me...but a girl can only do so much, ya know?

I just received the official review questions for the MIS final and our topics for our final paper in Ethics. The MIS questions are going to be a total PITA, but the Ethics paper doesn't sound too bad. I think I can easily use what I learned this semester to do a moral analysis on Wal-mart and determine whether Wal-mart is a morally good company, how I can make it morally better, etc. It's either that or examine my own employer and I'm not going there. Sounds like a stimulating topic, don't you think?

Speaking of Ethics...last night we discussed moral marketing. This led to us watching about a 1/2 hour of Super Size Me. After seeing that, I don't know if I ever want to eat fast food again. True story.

I have avoided eating fast food as much as I used to because of SuperSize Me. Of course, there is also the other argument that Spurlock purposely made himself sick and could have made smarter food choices. But, I know I don't always feel better later in the day eating junk food anymore...

Good luck with everything! You'll do great!

That is a cute pic, and it's exactly what I think of when thinking of you :-)

I saw a great documentry of Wal Mart on PBS. "Wal-Mart Is It Good For America". That might be good research for you.
Just looked it up you can see the whole thing online.

Good luck with the school work!
