The Five Year Plan

The Five Year Plan -- I'm on it. And in two days, I start my first day as a fifth year senior. Can we just talk for a minute how happy I am to know that in just 277 days (which is 9 months and 5 days if you're counting) I will finally be graduating with my bachelor's. I can't wait to get this semester over with. I only need seven more classes, all of which are upper levels for my major/concentration.

That's the damage -- six classes totaling eighteen credits. This is the most I've taken on in one semester, but I had to do it. That leaves one class for the spring, which I'm hoping will be offered as a once a week night class so I can work more but that's not something I'm even going to think about right now.

My internship (Professional Experience) is with WTMD's membership director working with their Fall Fund Drive and Membership stuff. That'll be Monday/Wednesday 10-1 and Thursday's 10-2. So essentially on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, I will be on campus for about ten to twelve hours a day. That also means I will be eating lunch and dinner on campus and must force myself to not eat at Panera for every meal. I'm limiting myself to Thursday's only, haha.

Luckily Professor Paul was my Entrepreneurship professor last semester and always lets you out of your night class around 8:30/8:455 and is a really nice/helpful professor. Good thing I have him for three classes!

I have a meeting with the woman I'm going to be working with for my Independent Study, who works in the office at my dad's work. I'm going to be working with their "Christmas Committee" who does fundraising in the fall for various local charities and families who don't really get a Christmas. I'm going to be in charge of a silent auction for the Ronald McDonald House.

Three of my books have arrived. I only had to purchase four online, I have the one I need for Business Strategy&Policy since I bought it from a kid last semester, along with my Project Management book from the summer. I purchased two International Editions because they cost about half of what a domestic used book did. I also snagged Seven Habits for Highly Effective People, which I need for Professional Experience for $0.01. That's right, a penny! Granted I paid $6.95 for priority shipping, I figured it was still my cheapest/most economical route.

I'm going to be so busy. I hope I can still make time to make yummy meals and desserts and cupcakes!
