Today, we had a pre-holiday division lunch. Our Division Administrator treated us to pizza, and a move with legit movie theater popcorn and she put on the movie Christmas vacation.
I am probably the only one in the world, who don’t particularly care for this movie. I mean it is funny, but I am not really into stupid humor. Wynn, one of my co-workers said it best, we have all of these characters in our families or someone that is close to resembling them.
While the movie was playing, we were all hoping that we would be able to leave early for the day since it was going to be the thanksgiving weekend. At the end of the movie, she said, “You may all go home now. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!” I was ready for Thanksgiving. I left the conference room and went down to my office and got all packed up and got ready to leave. I walked to the Cathedral to get my keys. Drew was going to have to take the bus home.
Also, I have been back and forth with Nikki, another TA in my class, who has been helping me with my rewrite. I feel as though I was almost done. It was a process and required a little bit of research. Now we are in the expanding portion of the paper. I am feeling pretty good about it. The rewrite was due November 26th.
Thankfully, I already started the third and final paper. However, Andrew and I are going to North Carolina on Friday, November 31st, and will be going on Saturday and return on Sunday, December 2nd. The final paper is due on the 3rd of December. I am so ready for this all to be over, but at the same time, I am trying to breathe in each moment and take it all in and appreciate every step and learn something from them.
Once I got home, I sat down and sent some corrections that I made to my rewrite and worked some more on my final paper. Thankfully, I had already started the last paper a while ago, or else it would have been so much to do on top of the rewrite. I was ready to rest and relax for the rest of the evening. I took a nap and waited for Drew to call me and tell me he needed to be picked up. I was so exhausted.
