Work list Update 1... ♫Let's / get down / to busi / ness...♫

    Made it through the week.  That's a good thing. People on the CC boards who have called in are saying they've called the C:GS office and have been told that depending on when everything was submitted, applicant's may get acceptance notices through May 1st. I don't know if I can survive that sort of anxiety. Especially, since NYU and Barnard my be out of the picture because of lack of application money and the inability to navigate the non-trad independent unfriendly CSS Financial Aid Profile to gain a waiver.
    The stagecraft quiz was a bomb, there just wasn't enough time to study as well as I want to. grr... It'll prob be a low B or High C *ugh* I left class and campus crying, utterly disgusted that I know I can do better. The speech went well, supposedly I went over...I don't even want to guess how much, I didn't bother to ask this time.  All semester, my speeches have run long.  There is a competition on environmental speeches that prof is offering 10pt extra credit for participating in. *looks meekly at Gulf Hypoxia speech from last semester* hmmm...
    I also didn't get my entry in for the pinnacle scholarship for PTK.  *sigh* It sucks, and there really is just no other word for it, that I qualify for things like these "honor societies" and because I can't pay exorbitant membership fees I don't get the honor.  I'd be willing to bet I'm not the only one. Same thing is sort of happening with NSCS.  On one side, I suppose you could argue that it's all redundant accolades, who cares it's too late to really participate in anything with either org.  My answer to that is, well I've qualified for both for numerous semesters and every semester the price of the accolade my hard work has earned, seems to go up.

In the end, it should “say something.” Think about what you wish to shine a light on.  It may be a serious topic or be a humorous slant on some aspect of pop culture.  Have fun with this, but spend some time on it.  It is easy to spot the haphazard attempts.
