Homework & my Schedule

The first two plays we read in Shakespeare class were awesome. I loved Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream was funny! However, this final play that we are reading is going to be the death of me. We are reading Richard III. I just cannot understand the concepts of this person killing off that one to get the throne and then marrying that one even though it’s his cousin or niece or whatever she is. And then having to refer to each person by several different names? I am sooooo f***ing confused right now!

I am just going to try to get the information for my short paper this week from the internet and forgo trying to read the play because it is nothing but frustrating and I am literally in tears at the thought of reading it again.

As for when I am going to do that, I have a new weekday schedule that I am trying to implement. I want to use my time during the day as best I can and get things done. So I have created a schedule that has me getting up at 7 when hubby does and schedules time for homework, blogging, reading, writing, and more. Now I just need to get into the habit of getting up at 7 every day. So far I have made it to getting up at noon, which is a little better than getting up at 3 in the afternoon but a far cry from 7 in the morning! I’ll get there… eventually…

Procrastinating Away

Just like the title says, I am procrastinating away. I am usually guilty of this to some degree, but not with so many things on my plate. I don’t usually let things get so piled up. When things get backed up like this after I’ve procrastinated for awhile, I usually get a tad bit overwhelmed.

But I’m not getting overwhelmed today. In fact, I’ve already made myself a to-do list and I checked a few things off it before I stopped to relax for awhile again. I will probably get back to things after I’m done writing this blog post.

So what exactly is on this to-do list?

Well, I need to do more reviews for the poetry contest on Writing.Com (yes, I am still working on those), and I am also still working on my homework for this week as well. This week for homework, I need to read a short story and analyze it for showing vs. telling and I need to do a few critiques for the stories we wrote last week. And I told a friend of mine that I would critique a story of his so I need to get on that, as well as critique the two stories for the writers workshop on Friday.

When I look at it that way, it seems like a lot but I think that if I break it up into manageable chunks, I can handle it and get all this stuff done ahead of schedule. I’m thinking next week will be quieter and I can focus on some things that I want to do rather than have to do which will make it nicer, plus easier to get through.

Well, I’m off to tackle the first thing that’s due on my to-do list – homework!
