Been a Stressful Week

This has easily been the most stressful week yet in CreComm. It has been a week full of assignments, and research projects. I've been lucky, because I had my review mostly written last week, but I've still felt the pressure. Twice in the last 24 hours I've found myself on the verge of bursting into tears because I found myself in a spelling dilemma, but one has been dealt with for sure, and the other is most likely okay as well. I'm a worrier by nature, but my reaction was a product of my stress. I'm thankful that tomorrow is Friday, and that I have plans with a friend on Friday, and I'm going out with Kirk on Saturday. That will give me an opportunity to unwind a bit.

I do a lot of my homework at home in the evenings, so on days when I can sleep in a little bit, my favourite way to unwind for the evening is to finish it off with The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien. I've spoken before about my great admiration for Conan, and I find that watching his show, and getting a good giggle calms me down and helps put a nice end to my day. Last night I was so stressed when it came on, but I had to tell myself that the situation was out of my hands until I received an email in the morning, and I sat down to watch it...and I felt better by the end of it. :)

I want to share a cool video I found a few days ago. The Muppets do Bohemian Rhapsody. I love Queen, and Bohemian Rhapsody is one of my favourite songs ever, so I got a great laugh out of this!


  1. Whatta great video. Animal is my favorite drummer, after Keith Moon.

    In just two weeks, the stress will be over, and you'll get to have the best sleep ever.

  2. Oh, I had the best sleep ever last night. Was out until 1:30 am, not sure how I stayed awake that late but I did it, got home, went to bed and slept until 11. Made me feel SO much better. I'm counting down the days until I can really relax and do that every night.

  3. A beer and sleep are always better after working hard, because it feels like you earned it!

  4. I'm not a beer drinker, but unwinding with a drink is awesome after a long week. It's also especially great to celebrate end of term or end of exam week.
