I'm trying to decide if I want to do NaBloPoMo this year. It seems a shame not to take up the challenge again, but I'm frazzled from working on getting in my 100 practicum hours for my masters degree this past month. 11-hour days suck. I'm already into the 80s on my hours and I haven't even gotten around to any of the required tasks. That's mainly because those take planning and foresight and I distinctly lack the ability to excel at either of those things. I'm much better at showing up and just doing what's sitting there in front of me. I also refuse to give up sleep for work or classwork.
The good news is that it's all over after this month. I'll have my new degree and a pay raise for the new year and increased prospects for a new job in the next school year. Of course, that's assuming I actually get off my ass and do the damned practicum assignments so it doesn't end up as an incomplete. It'd suck to lose my 4.0 GPA for the program, but I really don't need to pay for another semester, either. Shit's expensive.
