ROW80 Sunday exhaustion

Hello ROWers.

How are you? How’s the writing coming along? My creative writing is currently at a stand still, but academically, I’ve written about 4.000 words this week.

On Monday I posted my To Do List. Here’s how far I got:

  • Added again: MA501 Assignment #4
  • Submit MA501 Assignment #5
  • Submit CCC502 Assignment #4
  • Complete Filmmaking module #5
  • Complete Cultural Studies module #4
  • Complete Theatre & Globalisation module #4
  • Complete Global Health & Humanitarianism module #3
  • Complete International Development module #3
  • Complete Dutch module #2
  • Complete Modern Business & Organisations module #2
  • Complete Australian Literature module #2
  • Complete Interviews module #1
  • Complete Modern Middle East I module #1
  • Write ROW80 Wednesday update
  • Write ROW80 Sunday update
  • Write Weekend Coffee Share update
  • Finish reading The Vesuvius Club by Mark Gatiss
  • Start reading Devil in Amber by Mark Gatiss
  • Write a review of The Vesuvius Club

I didn’t manage to hand in one of my planned university assignments. But that’s ok. The deadline was self-imposed and the final deadline is not for another month, writing this piece next week is not too bad.

The modules with Sunday deadlines are done and all Quizzes / assessed discussions and assignments passed. I ticked off Modern Business & Organisations already, I just need to finish one short essay for that course. But once again, there is no strict deadline, so I can take my time. It’s 10pm and I’m just finishing the Australian Literature module (formatting the video transcripts to print them properly is a nightmare and takes longer than everything else). I’ll get Dutch done tonight as well, so that next week I’m only left with the Filmmaking modules (which I started a week late anyway).

Considering I had to work late on Monday and Tuesday and didn’t get anything done on Friday either, I think I did alright this week. I’ll have a few more hours next week, so catching up and staying on top of my list should not be as hard. Also: some of the courses are already coming to an end, so the busiest week is now over.

I haven’t decided yet whether I’ll post something for #1000Speak on March 20. It really depends on how tied up I am to post anything, even though I have a lot to say about bullying.

I’ll also need to make a start on my A-Z Challenge, which I will use as the basis of April’s Camp NaNoWriMo. And I need to come up with a Sherlock Holmes short story.

Never a dull moment over here.

  1. I think you did a great job getting through everything, all things considered. Looking at your to do list and what you’ve accomplished always impresses me! Keep up the work but try to get a little bit of time for yourself. We all need to relax a bit…even just long enough to watch a movie or read for pleasure (I set a time if time is limited).
