There are three more weeks of school left. Two weeks of classes, then one last push for finals.
A lot can happen in three weeks.
- You could hike the first several hundred miles of Caleb McMurry’s Appalachian Trail route.
- You could see 1,500 dozen Stanton Brothers eggs come through MU’s dining facilities.
- You could drive nonstop from Missouri to Alaska and back a total of 3.5 (ish) times.
- You could watch Raymond Bernard’s 1934 version of Les Misérables 107 times.
- Then again, you could watch this year’s upcoming release, directed by Tom Hooper, 201 times.
- You could watch this cool video of stuff getting destroyed in slow motion 4320 times.
- Or, you could get into the holiday season with these lil guys 15120 times.
As for me, I won’t be doing any of that. Instead I’ll be:
- Finishing up my story on Mo Tipton, owner of the tiny food business The Mouse Market.
- Looking for one or two more new stories, and then actually writing them.
- Working two more general assignment shifts, in addition to my one weekend shift this Saturday.
- Conquering one more History of American Journalism test.
- Finishing the last 3/4 of the book “Just Kids” and writing a 7-page response to it for my art culture class. Isn’t that kind-of-sort-of close to being finished?
- Writing up a gallery review for the final project of said art class.
- Working on an 8-page research paper for my Spanish literature class.
- Applying for internships, scheduling advising meetings, going through course evaluations and perfecting the chocolate chip-banana bread recipe I discovered over Thanksgiving break.
Whew. That stuff can be just as fun, right?
THREE. MORE. WEEKS.
PS — journalists can work with numbers too.
LOLJK, someone check my math.
