Next time I should not plan on trip the week before I have an exam, a quiz, a presentation and an 8 page research paper due the day after I return.
8 hours is not enough time to accomplish all of these tasks.
You would be impressed with the goals I have set for myself in the masters degree program.
There is really actually only one:
Just barely good enough to pass each class and graduate.
I think that's a pretty lofty goal.
