Making the Impossible a Possibility

November {Minus the Brrrrrrr}

Senior year has certainly had its ups and downs.

Over the past couple of months, I have delighted in many of my last high school events. Some of the most notable were finishing my senior year varsity tennis career, being awarded courtship as a princess for Homecoming, and numerous assignments. The best part about senior year as of this date is the decreased amount of homework; junior and senior year are by no means comparable in workload. This has definitely helped with college applications, which I am currently wrapping up. I have decided to apply to Niagara University and Nazareth College.

As of right now, I should be completing two college essays and a ten-minute lesson plan for my GCC course in first year college experience, but I am obviously still a victim of the procrastination bug. The assignment is focused on developing knowledge within our career choice, which for me happens to be English as a second language teaching. However, I have been distracted by the lovely weather we have been having in New York! The temperatures are very far above average, which has made me extremely happy.

Now, let’s not skip over the main point of this blog post. November is National Novel Writing Month, an event that I have participated in for the past three years as of this date. This year, I am focusing on a manuscript involving my own interpretation of Alice in Wonderland, adding a story that occurs many years after Alice’s first adventures in Wonderland. My word count is currently at 15, 700, but needs to reach at least 50, 000 by the end of the month. I find NaNoWriMo to be such an encouraging, refreshing event to take part in. It’s so nice to have a drive to write, a way of helping writers make the time to get their creative juices flowing. It’s only day nine of NaNoWriMo; I highly suggest that if you did not know about NaNoWriMo or were contemplating joining in on the fun, you should give NaNoWriMo a try! It’s entirely worth all of the effort.

As I begin to adjust to my new schedule, I will post more frequent blog posts yet again. 😀

Procrastination Station.

Have you ever reached a moment in your life where you… well. Just don’t feel like doing anything?

Right now I’m experiencing this. At the worst possible time ever. What amazes me is how teachers can assign 8 different project deadlines on the same day. Say what? Not to mention… four of them were given today. Erm.

All right. I admit that I had been putting off the other four, but… really?! Isn’t there any way for there to be better scheduling? I mean, it is my fault that I have been enticed by such lovely things as stumbleupon.com and the temptation of facebook.

Heck, it’s obvious that I shouldn’t be even typing this blog post right now! But I am going to persevere. I am going to ignore my laptop and dig into the wonderous assignments from the land of Junior year. I am going to tackle that Animoto-test corrections-worksheet-essay 1-essay 2-book report-vocabulary-Castle Learning and smile. 🙂

Why do I have to worry?

Stress is just another part of the challenge.
