Woody’s face pretty much describes how I feel right now…
It’s that time of the year, papers and midterms…and everything involves writing. The prompt for this blog post was to write about something writing related, and it really made me think of how much writing an average student does everyday! There’s my political science classes which involve papers and grant proposal writing, and there’s my psych classes which involve more papers and exams with “short” answers (which is equal to writing a long paragraph for each question, for 5 broad questions). Then there’s writing emails to the Michigan Pre-Law Society members as the PR chair. Plus writing case reports and notes in my work as a facilitator at the Office of Student Conflict Resolution, which ends up equivalent to about 3-5 pages a day. Oh, and then you could add on texting, facebook wall posts, and editing my brother’s college application essays.
Out of a 24 hour day, I spend about 8 hours a day sleeping, 3 hours a day in class, 4 hours a day at work, 2-3 hours in meetings, which leaves about 3 hours of studying and 3 hours of relaxing/procrastination time. And writing is involved in almost every activity, except sleeping! It just really makes you appreciate assignments where you can do something besides writing – like our re-mediation project! I look forward to working with a new medium, and perhaps an entirely new presentation style!
Hopefully as I fall asleep tonight, I won’t be seeing letters 😛
