Hey folks,

Just wanted to let you know what's up with little ol' me. I am...exhausted. The last exam session is taking its toll on me. Hard. I think I'm going to take a small break from blogging and critting (I'll try to get everything in, but I don't promise anything).

I've been going through a harsh time, intellectually speaking. It's stressing to finish college. I know I'm not the first or the last who goes through this. And I'm not complaining. It's a very exciting time for me, when I get to put my efforts into getting the job I want and start building my adult future. (I'm still a kid deep inside)

So, here's what I'll be doing for the following days days:

Today - lay around, sleep, watch some House MD, maybe crit a story or two. (I had an extra tough exam today. I thought it went pretty well. Not perfect, but well enough)
Tomorrow - First semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest(ESC). People from the UK/Europe might know what I'm talking about (I'm actually rooting for UK - I love Blue, and I want them to win :D). For those who don't - it's this mega live show where a band from each country performs and one country wins. Romania is in it too, of course, and the song is pretty decent. Also, I'll try to finish my crits for the week.
May 12th - Second ESC semifinal (Romania and UK are both in there - bummer)
May 14th - ESC final -Woot!
May 15th - Give away the copy of Myti's book. Exam in Social Security (funny, I always have an exam right after the ESC final :p)- Officially my last college exam ever!
May 28th - UEFA Champions League final (FC Barcelona vs Manchester United) Yes, I'm a soccer nut. And sorry friends from the UK, but I'm with Barça on this one ;)
June 3rd - My graduation ceremony (I'll probably blog about that and give you pictures :p) Also, the prom.
June 29th - My graduation exam.

In between, I'll be studying and heavily editing both Hunters (so I can get my proof copy of the second draft) and Ruby (so I'll have something to stick in the queues on CC).

But I'll be seeing you before then! Just wanted you guys to know what I get up to when no one is watching ;)

I do this too, but shhhh - Don't worry, it's not loaded
So, what are you guys up to?
Signing off...


  1. Fire that thing on the day you take your last exam. I remember that day. It felt great!!! I left the building and gave out a big WOOHOO!! People looked at me like I was nuts of course :)

  2. Lol, I think I'll do that after my graduation exam :D Thanks Mysti!

  3. Enjoy a good break, Steph. Seems like the popular thing to do. Yeah, I remember exams. My Finals was short but intense - 8 x 3-hour papers crammed in to a 4 day period. Hope you do well.

  4. CongratZ, almost! My graduation was anti-climactic. We were able to be hired out of class and still get enough credit to graduate on April 15th (1991). I was the third person hired out of my class, so I left school the 15th. They mailed my graduation papers to me. No ceremony or anything, because I had to move about 5 hours away.

    That was 20 years ago. I'll let you know when the grown-up, adult thing starts to set in.


  5. Thanks everyone. I will try to get a bit of a break (though I should get on my Social Security studying).

    Lol, what you're saying sounds promising Jay :D

  6. Good luck with the exams, Steph. Hope all goes well. Bet you can almost smell the freedom round the corner :).

  7. Lol, yes, almost - too bad I have to keep learning until the end of August for my career exam. But then I'll have 3 weeks of complete freedom :D Yeey!


Show me the love :)
