Late Night Blogging with Mary: Part 20

late night blogging with mary

I’m exhausted. Just like physically exhausted. My IT class has already kept me up until 2 am two nights ago and until 12 last night and it’s only the second week of classes.

This semester is going to be long. I just know it. Maybe this light dusting of snow will give me a delay tomorrow, I would not complain. I would like to have a week off due to snow delays and days off in total because they added a week to our calendar. We’re supposed to get this huge snow storm this weekend, but I have a feeling that it won’t happen. Also, I hate that, weekend storms are the worst. I always have to move my car through the icy campus and they wait until Sunday to actually plow/salt anything. Maryland doesn’t do snow well.

My classes thus far are interesting, yet I know they will be challenging. I’m already learning new things in nearly all of my classes, which is great because usually it’s still a review. I’m glad that I’m finally getting interested in what I’m learning about. Advanced Reporting is probably  my least favorite class, but Online Journalism is probably my favorite, we all know I have a little obsession with the internet.

This weekend I have a lot to do, and I would like to do some scrapbooking. I know I live a fascinating life and you were all dying to know that I just want to scrapbook. I want to try and get a head start on my homework that way I’m not procrastinating. This week when I tried to get ahead on my IT homework, the site was down, so that didn’t help my procrastination at all. My philosophy is this semester the farther ahead I get the easier life will be in the long run. We’ll see how that works out.

I really want to get into being more creative. I feel like I’m just letting all of my creative energy fall to the wayside while I don’t do much with my free time. I need to devote more of my free time to creative things and less to Netflix and doing nothing.

I don’t know if I’ve written this anywhere, but I’m very glad to be back at school with my friends, but it does take some adjusting. I hardly recognize anyone and all of last week I just felt like I had to leave soon. I think it’s just starting to sink in that I’m not going back to Ireland anytime soon, however, I am glad to be back. You can’t dwell on the fact that you’re back in the US, otherwise you’ll never move on in life, so I’m just accepting it and moving on.

Everyone seems to just be going back to school, but how are your semesters going so far? Or jobs? Or just life in general?

    I’m in my second week of school back in Mississippi. It’s super cold and if there’s even a CHANCE of maybe getting one little snowflake, the entire town will shut down. (which I’m hoping for) Are you a journalism major? I am!

    I hope your classes go well and you find a creative outlet. I’ve been wanting to start exploring watercolor because I’ve heard it’s easier than painting (i can’t draw worth a flip anyway). Have a good week!

      I’m a communications major, so close haha! That’s almost what it’s like here, not quite as extreme, but I’ve had off for as much as an inch of snow. I can’t draw either! I just love to be creative, crafting especially. Like DIY kind of stuff. I hope you have a good week!

    Hey Mary! I’m glad that you’re enjoying some of your classes and that you’re finding them interesting! I know classes can be tough, but if you work hard, you’ll get through them. Working ahead can be a good idea, just make sure that you don’t go so fast that you lose track of what you’re doing (I kind of did this in typing class and things got a little more difficult than they could have been).

    Be careful with the weather and have a great weekend!

    Hey Mary! I just started my semester too, and I’m trying SO HARD to resist mediocrity, but I feel it coming for me. And I’m also trying to find more time to be creative, but I will admit it can be difficult. Annnywaay, I hope this semester goes well for you!

      Thank you! I hope you have a great semester too! Resisting mediocrity is so hard sometimes, I completely understand.

Tell me what you want, what you really really want!
