Here I go again complaining about school, when I know there are problems much worse. But can I just say--this has been the toughest first week of school I ever went through (and am still going through as of today, Wednesday). Despite the four-day schedule I have, things aren't any easier. I've only gone through the first three days of the term and already, I've filled up those dates on my planner with so much things to do. To top it all off, I have professors who are well, not the easiest to please... definitely not easy. So I'm stuck with to-do checklists and pages and pages of readings.


My planner full of checklists!

So much things to read! More where that came from! :(

But I can't not do well this term! I should make up for last term... my parents were very disappointed to find out that I wasn't on the Dean's List anymore. Not that I'm really bothered by it, to be honest, because I know I did what I could to hang in there but I guess it just wasn't enough.

Professors have also been mentioning thesis to us quite often now. We're already on our 6th term out of the 9 terms of our stay in the University, so we're already supposed to be doing thesis in the next school-year. It's so crazy! I mean, I knew three years in the Uni is short, but I didn't think it was THAT short that I am already constantly reminded to think of what I want to do for my thesis... and later on, what I want to do with my life! Oh goodness! I don't think I'm ready for this. The pressure! Just thinking about it makes me want to just crawl back to bed and just dream that there's nothing to worry about. Sigh. So one of our professors already told us some of the theses that have been done in the past. Being Communication Arts students, we are encouraged to be as creative as we can with ours, as long as we are able to stand by it. As far as what we can do, "Sky's the limit," our professor said. We've also seen a lot of the short film theses and they were really good... which then made me think, How did they come up with such good ideas? I hope I'll be able to do something to that extent with mine (or ours--depending on whether or not I go with the group thesis or the individual).
