It may seem as if your brain is your enemy instead of your ally. For every thought that comes up, you might think of two more that contradict it. Then suddenly you have four thoughts contradicting the two contradicting thoughts. Pretty soon you find yourself going around in circles over an issue that is quite simple. Don't get angry with yourself, and try not to get frustrated. The key is to take things more slowly, and don't mentally jump ahead of the place you are at now.~My horoscope for today

Isn't it interesting how that horoscope seems to come at the right time? I mean think about it. We are at the end of the semester and I know that my thoughts are going 10 ways against the middle. I'm thinking about finals, about the presentation I have to do tomorrow, Christmas on the Hill, and many other things. It just seems that my mind can't stay focused on one thing for very long. It's like at this time of the year we all develop a mild form of ADD or ADHD. You people may laugh, but seriously. Even dedicated students end up just throwing in the towel and heading in another direction eventually.

A perfect example of this is last night. Athena was telling me today that while she was studing for her Art History final she started thinking that Leonardo and DiVinci were two different people. Now this is a girl that loves art and loves to learn more on it every day and she is starting to mix things up that are commonly known! How crazy is that? Others are having a hard time concentrating too, or not even just concentrating but staying awake. I don't know how we get through, and yet we always manage.

I was helping Kathy Fajt in her office today. She has an insane amount of work that needs done and she was so chipper I just had to ask her why. She told me that "Some how, some way the piles always seem to disappear. So why worry?" I have to say that I didn't think that I was going to make it through the last two weeks. I made a list of all that was due, none of it small, and it was two pages long! However I did. Everything was turned in on time, and I did my very best on all of them. That's all one can do.

As I approach the last of my assignments (a presentation in Spanish). I find myself procrastinating once again by doing this blog entry. Stephanie just asked me to make her do her work, but I can't even bring myself to do my own! And yet off I go to attempt to focus one last time and make all of the things in my brain be quiet. Good Luck all in the last day of classes and on your future finals.
