Midterms, Work, and Soccer!

Midterms are going well for me. Two of my classes are English classes, so I do not have midterms for those. Of course, I just finished a chapter for this class, and I am working on expanding a paper to 15 pages for 3210, so that is stressing me out more than any midterm would. For history, I just took a midterm and did really well on it, so I am happy about that. I also just took a Political Science midterm and got an "A." Now, I have to start on a major writing assignment and a group project for that class.

It seems like every semester is more difficult than the previous one. Still, I am managing. It helps to have a loving and caring wife, great professors, a supportive boss, and awesome friends. I am trying to take it one semester at a time. I should be done with most of my coursework by next summer, leaving only my capstone project—and hopefully graduation—for the fall of 2012.

This always seems like the most stressful and difficult part of the semester. We are halfway through it, and I am already exhausted, yet the other half still remains. At least when the semester is beginning, I am fresh and excited about my classes. And at the end, the hard work seems worth it because I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. The only thing getting me through the semester (and particularly this week) is my beloved Real Salt Lake. I do not know what I will do in the off season. Going to Rio Tinto and yelling and screaming for ninety minutes has been a tremendous stress reliever. I forget about all my assignments and troubles, I let the rush and excitement of the game take over my brain, and I release aggression in a very healthy way (others might disagree about this) during game days.

I guess there is always next season to look forward to. Until then, I will be hard at work at the center and in each of my classes.
