Staring at a blank piece of paper doesn't inspire me.........

(Bing images)

I've actually used this image before......and I'm annoyed that this happens whenever I have a paper to write.  

I have some data.

Printed out a map.

But I have yet to write a single word.  This paper is due in 8 days.  It has to be 6 - 8 pages long.  The best thing about this paper is that it represents the final assignment.  Then I will be free of this class that is soooo depressing.  Because basically it is about the injustices that exist in the world, have always existed, and probably will always exist.  Humph.

In other news, Romeo has obtained his interim license to teach and can now apply for a teaching position.  He has been substitue teaching at least 2 days a week.  The pay for substitute teaching is abismal, but he has to have at least one job a week to maintain his interim license.  Once school is out for summer he won't have to worry about it, as he has already been told that because of the budget issues for APS (Albuquerque Public Schools) they won't be using substitute teachers.  In one of the schools he was at last week, the EA (educational assistant) mentioned he didn't see how that was going to work, but hey!  I'm sure that the bureaucracy knows what they are doing.  Right?  Sure.

My honors application is in, and now I'm just waiting for them to approve it so that I can register for the class this fall.  It is being held from 1pm-2:15pm on Mondays and Wednesdays.  I haven't discussed it yet with my co-workers, so I guess I am assuming they will be ok with me being out for two hours twice a week.  I had sent a request to the Anthropology department to please consider non-traditional students when they decide when to hold the honors class.  Looks like I was completely ignored.  What a surprise.  If my co-workers don't agree, I guess I just won't take the honors class, and find something else to do/take.  

Well, gotta get busy.  Love, 365


  1. I have gotten to the point that paper is never where I write. :)

    College is a racket. They don't care what you think or what you need... only about themselves and perpetuating their existence. I don't think your full time job and a real life make any difference to them. Ever want to tell the world to take a hike?

    1. You're right, I don't think it will make a huge difference in real life, and certainly not to my employers (since there are two doctors). But, hey one never knows where this path will lead. I am doing it mostly for myself, to earn a degree. It has proven that I can succeed in college ~ giving me a huge boost in my confidence....which is no little thing for me. And yeah, much of college is a racket, but it's the only game in town where I can earn a bachelor's degree.

  2. Oh those damned blank pages. They do haunt me too!

  3. I saw that cartoon in a blog roll and clicked over. Looks like you are working on some type of degree while working in the real world. I do think older (past young 20's) students make better students. They are serious. Best of luck.

    1. Thank you! I am nearly done with the paper....hopefully it will be received positively. I'm working on a degree in Anthropology, btw.


History in a history class

Well, I'm not quite at this age, but sometimes it certainly feels like it... The truth is, she's probably a visiting professo...
