So I'm worn out.

Tuesdays are killer.  I had to be ON CAMPUS at 8 am today...

And then had class all day...I am about to head to another one here in a second so.  At least Danny is in this one!

I'm just TIRED.  I can't believe how tired I am.  I guess it's because I haven't been sleeping well.  The street noise is just INSANE.

Anyway we just got an email that says we have to clean EVERYTHING because the landlord is coming tomorrow...


so when I come home from my class I have to clean.

I'm getting really worried about classes.  I didn't really think about it but our GPA does transfer.  Classes are harder here and people rarely get high distinction.  One of my classes ACTUALLY says under what is accepted for each grade "publishable material".  Which means INSANE.

If I get here what transfers to a B at home, it counts as a B and a half too since this is a semester!

I can't afford that!  Which means I have to work REALLY REALLY REALLY hard.

The papers are going to be rough...mainly because I don't know how to site and write like an Australian...I'm supposed to do some library tour for a class too and do all this citation stuff.  Everyone keeps saying "so easy, easy grade" but for me it will be hard.


The things I do for this experience! ;-)

Time to go back to class and learn about children's books!

Don't forget about the librarian who said she'd help you however she could, Elizabeth (Libby) Brackenridge:

Might be a good idea to introduce yourself now and see if you can make an appointment to go over your citations on your first draft. Hang in there!

are u gettting enough iron? That could be why youre so sleepy...on top of the street noise and such. I mean your diet sounds pretty crappy right now, though i checked to day and peanutbutter does have 4% of iron in it. Regardless, that is not enough! Make sure you eat some red meat, i know its expensive, but at least twice a week. Oh and make sure youre getting plenty of vitamin C because that absorbs iron well. Unfortunately, peanutbutter doesnt have Vitamin C in it. Well if u cant afford it, maybe get some supplements. Make sure little lindsay is too! love you girls
