As my Facebook status suggests, this weekend has been one heck of a weekend, at least for my body/brain. A trip to Target last night resulted in two cases of Diet Coke, three packages of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, two packages of Twix bars (5 for $4; who couldn't resist?), a box of Oreo's, a frozen Target brand pizza, and a 12 oz. bag of Dunkin' Donuts Hazelnut coffee grounds. All for the low, low price of $22.
So here it is, a day later. A current inventory count (using, of course, the FIFO method when valuating my ending inventory balance--can you tell I've been studying accounting?) shows: two packages of Reese's, half a container of Oreo's (which I shared with Carolyn, thank you), 19 cans of Diet Coke, one and a half packages of Twix bars, 3/4 of the pizza, and roughly the same amount of coffee grounds. For those of you who dislike math, here's what's missing: one package of Reese's is gone. Along with five cans of Diet Coke. And four "generous" tablespoons of coffee grounds (roughly around two cups of coffee). Plus half of a package of Twix bars. And a 1/4 of the pizza.
So how do I feel? Energetic. Awake. Slightly nauseas. And how much studying has been done? In the past two days, over 23 hours. No joke.
I know what many of you are asking yourselves: What college kid studies for that amount of time for a test? Well, for starters, I do. Then there's the fact that this week will be the "week from hell". I'll break it down for you:
Monday - more studying.
Tuesday - Intermediate Accounting 2 midterm (which is often referenced as the hardest class in Carlson. The average grade on a test is around 52/100. Yes, you read that right).
Wednesday - Auditing midterm (not so bad--just a lot of memorization of tiny details/procedures/modules, etc.). A final group project is also due that night on the last night of my A-Term class (over ten pages of writing for just my portion of the project). A paper is also due for my biology lecture at noon, which is right in the middle of said midterm and final project.
Thursday - "relaxful day", which means working on homework that's due the next day.
Friday - Biology Lab set of word problems is due. And a lab quiz. This wouldn't be as stressful had I actually paid attention in classes/lab.
And then it's the weekend. Am I blowing things out of proportion? Probably. But it's still stress nonetheless. If I have one thing to be thankful for, it's that the week before Spring Break appears to be empty. Okay, I lied; I have two things to be thankful for--the other being that Diet Coke has zero calories. Because the Lord knows that I need to save as many as I can, especially considering the junk food that's already, and shall be, consumed.
My body's going to kill me once I get back on my regular diet.
