So, I’ve gotten all of the work done and submitted for my ethics class and anthropology class. For linguistics, all I need to do is show up and get at least a 50% on the final to pass the course with an A.
The tricky thing is my literature class—I have a longer paper I’ve been dragging out (I have sequential notes written that amount to a rough draft—I just need to type them up and smooth it out into something I can submit), and then two short papers on two different plays.
I just don’t WANT to write anymore.
It’s all over on Thursday. Just tonight, tomorrow, then BAM! All done.
I had someone cover my shift so that I could relax a little and get crackin’ on my last assignments for the semester. Of four classes, only two have actual final exams—the others are papers.
So far today, I finished all of the assignments for my anthropology class—I’m getting ready to take a quiz (online) for the last chapter and then I’ll go back through the readings before taking the final.
I have to polish up two five-page papers—one for ethics, the other for literature—then write two short papers for literature, and go over some of the readings from my linguistics class (pssh… I only need to get a 50% on the final to pass with an A).
This actually seems manageable.
Monday: anth quiz and assignment, anth final
Tues: ethics paper
Thurs: lit papers, ling final
isn’t that much. Five pages on four aspects of Navajo culture. Five pages on Wendell Berry. Oh, but eight pages on language extinction.
These topics are interesting to me. Why is it so hard to make myself write these damn things?
Anthropology: quiz, bonus assignment, ethnicity project
Ethics: moral problem paper
Literature: poetry presentation & paper
Linguistics: research paper on endangered languages

Finally! I’ve barely had time to think about it (One!! One day off since Thanksgiving!!), but I’ve found presents for everyone in the two places of business where I can be found regularly: the book store where I work and the grocery store. Books and chocolates (and fruit leathers for the little kids) have been selected for each and every individual. All that’s left—throwin’ some tissue paper in gift bags (sometimes I’m such a bachelor), toasting (chili lime!) pecans, and baking a few cherry-and-cranberry studded loaves of soda bread.
