I'm thinking about declaring homework bankruptcy.

I go home on December 21. That is 37 days from today. Between now and then, I have to complete:

  • Four research papers of length ten pages or longer. (Also the research necessary to write said papers. Ugh.)

  • Five shorter papers of various lengths
  • One presentation
  • One two-and-a-half hour movie, since I can't attend the class showing
  • One quiz
  • One midterm
  • One simulation game (and research and preparation beforehand)
  • Four finals

All on top of approximately 40-70 pages of reading per school day, just for class. And two and a half hours out of each day spent commuting.

How the jesusfish do these classes only count as 3/4 credits? For the vast majority of students at DIS, *either* they have to take five classes *or* their grades factor into their GPA. Not both at once. What the crap, Scripps. What. The. Crap.

But yeah. I got 3.5 hours of sleep last night, just doing what I absolutely had to. Me and my mental health are so f**ked.
