So I've got 9 pages of notes thus far from my readings for the Ethics final paper, which has a limit of 6-10 pages. I'm not done reading for it yet - that means maybe another three or four pages of notes to be written. The good thing is that once I get through the note-taking phase, I can turn this porcine verbiage into a silk purse, or at least a pleather purse, within the length limit fairly quickly.
It's just that tomorrow I have Fat Club first thing in the morning, icon writing at noon until 2 or 2:30, Saint Middle School contemporary service 41 miles away with set-up starting at 4, then taking PH out for his birthday dinner at 8:30. That pretty much kills Saturday.
Sunday I've got Saint Middle School all morning, leaving the house at 7:15 and getting home probably around 3 pm. If I have four cups of coffee, I probably will be able to put in another 3-4 hours of work afterwards. Next week is a bear. I still haven't finished the Trinity Sunday sermon for Homiletics on Friday. Come, Holy Spirit, come!
Oh, and I've got to develop the revised version of the honors thesis proposal so I can get it approved by my advisor and the Dean and register for next fall's courses by Wednesday night.
And then, of course, I need to study for exams. One more week of classes, then reading days and exams, and of course candidacy interviews.
I can do this....can't I?
