An Event-filled Weekend. If Homework Counts As An Event.

Isn’t it sad that I’m so thankful to have had a weekend without classes… so I can get more homework done?

The past two weeks have been just killer for me. It started off two Sundays ago with a 10:30 pm hockey game. Which meant – after playing, getting all my gear off, driving home, showering, and coming down from the adrenaline rush – I didn’t get to sleep until 2 am. And I get up for work at 6:30 a.m. This lack of sleep was compounded by a 9:30 pm hockey game on the Wednesday – again, not getting to sleep until way past my bedtime, especially given I was still exhausted from the Sunday night game. But the following weekend didn’t give me any reprieve, as I had class all weekend, including an accounting “quiz”1, plus a playoff hockey game on Saturday night. And then every single night last week I had some sort of event – or two events on some night. By Friday, I was so very, very, very, very tired.

But this weekend was good. I got to sleep in both yesterday and today, and I had no appointments or events2 or anything else to get in my way of being a productivity machine! I marked all the assignments from my students3, I studied a bit of accounting for my final exam next weekend, I created a PowerPoint for a group presentation (which serves) as our final exam for one of the courses I’m currently taking, I played a game of hockey, I talked to my sister and my BFF, and I did this:

Hooray!

What I didn’t do, however, was attend my Grandpa’s 90th birthday party, as he (along with all of my family) lives out east and I couldn’t get out there. I heard that a fantastic time was had by all – and the pics on Facebook certainly made me wish I could have been there. In particular, I like this photo which I shamelessly stole from my cousin Eliza’s Facebook:

Grandpa's 90th

It’s my grandpa with his great, great grandson, Rooke. Nice to see that even after 90th years, he still has his great sense of humour! Happy birthday, Grandpa!

  1. Though I find it difficult to call something that lasts 90 minutes a “quiz”. []
  2. Well, save for hitting a pub yesterday to celebrate St. Patty’s Day – but a girl has to eat, right? []
  3. Did I mention that I’m teaching stats again this term? Because, did I mention that I’m insane? []
