    Just finished my story plus the epilogue at 94064 total. I am so happy I finished. But rest is for the weak. I begin on story two tomorrow.

    EDIT: I really need to stop posting places on my ipad. The autocorrect makes me look like a bumbling fool.
    So, I have this blog. It's here
    and a book blog
    I tweet too.

    Been studying a bit more today than on previous days. A fair amount of it is starting to sink in...

    So glad I can take my notes in with me! There's just so much to remember!

    It's meant to be 6 questions (your choice out of 21) and I'm just hoping that the 10 or so contingencies I'm really hoping are in there (and have been studying for) will amount to 6 questions or more.

    Seriously, I can't study for all of it and actually hope to retain more than a little bit. Studying for less means retaining more. I hope.

    But the subject is the Sociology of Everyday Life.

    Everyday Life. So basically, anything we encounter in life might be present in some form or another. That's a fuckload of things to be prepared for! Ack!

    Doing my best. Trying not to be a perfectionist. Doesn't mean I'm not trying - I'm just not going to beat myself up for being less prepared than the lecturer.

    Stopped at 34,290 last night, so I've used up my lead. Fortunately, I'm almost done the other project that's been borrowing my time.

    I'm hoping to get ahead again this weekend *crosses fingers*

    Just broke 30k. I need to average 2k/day in order to make this work. I think I might be able to do it. The story's fun to write
    Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

    I'm about the same; I've dragged myself past 31k, writing almost 5k over today. Want to sleep now please...

    I do love my story, but after a while my brain just makes clunking noises and then I forget how to type, and how to think. I was almost contemplating letting my first try at NaNo go by without a win, but my husband gave me a pep talk yesterday. And I think it's doable from here. As long as Life doesn't get in the way.

    There's less than a week and a half to go, after all - though I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing!

    I'm without about three or four thousand words of the "finish line." Nowhere near finishing my stories, though!! And yes, feeling utterly exhausted and like I've been neglecting other things.

    Win at NaNo, lose at life?? I hope not. -_-

    So stuff happened, and I lost my buffer, and I didn't write for a few days, and now I have to put in like 2.5k days for the rest of the month.

    It's no problem, right?

    Go go go everyone!

    ...

    Just went through 30-40 pages of notes (which I read the other day) to put asterisks at the top of all the important pages, and at the important parts of those pages.

    So I now have another 10-15 pages (some part-pages) along with my 10 readings' notes to study as much as I can tomorrow. Still very thankful I can take the notes in with me, though! Even with culling a lot of it as I've done, there's still sooooo much to learn!

    Starting to freak out about the exam now. I'm having horror thoughts such as, "What if I fail this subject?" I probably won't... But I just don't know 100%, and won't until after the exam (or perhaps when I get my grade, if the exam goes badly).

    I mean, at the moment I'm planning on doing 4 subjects next semester. 2 of the ones I want to do are only available to me if I pass this particular subject... If I fail that poetry class that I sucked at, no big deal (apart from needing to do an extra subject at some point). But this one... It could set me to the point of being a part-timer next semester, which would mean the government would get on my back about getting a job...

    Ugh. Trying not to freak out... In all probability, the exam will go well.

    The turkey is in the oven, football is on the t.v, and I haven't written a word yet.

    I really need to get started on that.
