This week started with a bang, to say in the least. I had originally planned to be out of town mid-week for my mother’s birthday and a dentist appointment (need to get that in before the move!), which made
the week crazy enough. Now, I have a job interview Wednesday morning in Washington D.C.—super exciting? Yes. Totally messed with my plans this week? Also yes, but I’ll take it! Now, I’m gearing up for a drive this afternoon to Washington D.C., and I’ll be back in Athens (900 miles and roughly 16 hours of driving later) on Friday—Wish me luck!
Aside from the crazy travel schedule, classes are beginning to come to a close. We have our Economic Development Policy presentation next Wednesday, where I’m focusing on rural economic development—there’s also a paper component that I need to start drafting. I have to start thinking about my fundraising plan, also due during finals week. Also on my plate is my portfolio defense on next Tuesday (Eeeep!!).
To make things more complicated, we have to start thinking about the move. If I get a job, when it will happen; if I don’t have a job, when it will happen; renting a truck; finding an apartment; getting settled; yadda yadda yadda.
One thing at a time. Travel, school, move. If I focus on more than one at a time, I might go crazy.
Remember when I said I was ready to get out of school? Looks a little scarier now that it’s almost here!
Hope everyone has a less stressful Week 8 than I do!
