UGH! It's not even so much homework as it is a case of OCD that is keeping me up way past my bedtime! I finished my school work, and I feel like I have to get the house in order. I told myself in the beginning of this grad-school adventure that schoolwork trumps housework. I think I am doing some wacky self-talk like, "You've quit your job, so you have to do better with cleaning."
Time to let that go, huh? Sleep also trumps housework.
I gave my first presentation of the semester today. My classmates and I -- in sets of two -- presented power-point presentations about briefs that were based on Cornell University's Department of Sociology's initiatives and studies. My partner and I discussed CaRDI, a university program that partners with community leaders to strengthen NYS. I have to say everyone in the class did great work!
