progress

I have finished, with the exception of making my final presentation, my coursework for my capstone class! I took the CompXM (which is basically a comprehensive type exam offered through the people who make the simulation program), and got a 55%. I of course automatically was like, "oh shit I failed!", but my prof. assured me that that's actually a pretty good score, and one of the highest he's ever had. I would have done better if my 'company' hadn't just sucked the first 2 rounds, but after I figured out what I was doing wrong, I was able to recover a bit. But apparently this is fairly common, so I don't feel like a total failure. So now its just finishing Econ, and in 3ish weeks I'll have my MBA. Whew.

Work still sucks, but we're doing a day of volunteering as a unit at a girls' shelter in Springfield on Wed, so that should be fun. The following week we're having a 1 day meeting in STL the following Thur, which is a pain in my ass because I'll probably spend more time driving to and from the meeting than actually attending it, but oh well. Plus I have class Wed nights, so I can't leave until late, which will make for a very long couple of days. Blah. Please let someone call from one of the bazillion jobs I've applied to!

Next weekend is Abi's wedding, and I'll confess that I'll be happy when it's over. I'm happy for her and all that, but we've been talking about it and planning for over a year now, and I'm ready for it to be done. :) (I'm thinking she is too, so she won't be offended by that statement when she reads this.) She'll have to take up knitting or something to fill her free time. Until she has kids anyway. So I have to be in STL Thur evening for the rehersal, and then other wedding-related things the rest of the weekend. Busy.

On a totally unrelated note, there are 3 little kittens (like only a few weeks old) that have been hanging around my apt. They're cute. Last night, however, it stormed pretty badly, and I could hear them in our breezeway or somewhere close crying cause I'm sure they were scared and cold, and I felt like a terrible person for not letting them in. They're still hanging around though, so I guess they survived, but I wish someone would just take them or that they would go away so I don't feel guilty for not wanting them!

Have a great week!
