I just submitted my final assignment for the semester. Huge feeling of relief. It was almost a week late, due to an awful combination of illness and fatigue. But I finally got it done.

Illness aside, I wish I knew a way to study that didn't involve massive disruption to everything else in my life. Last minute/day/week assignment panic. All those days and nights where I think I will finish the thing, then discover (or simply decide) that there's lots more still to do - those darn perfectionist tendencies!! The accompanying grovelling emails to lecturers asking for extensions :(

I only have one more subject to go before I complete my Master of Information Studies. Just one more subject. And I'm going to defer it. This week I'll put in a request for a leave of absence next semester, and I'll do that last subject in the summer semester. Because I need a break. And a life.
