Blog Entry 43
February 21st, 2010
Well, that’s that. I just submitted my final brief for ALTA. The past two months of my life have been spent working on this assignment that culminates in a clicking of the “submit” button…so anticlimactic. Not even a “congratulations Meagan!” from the submission page, just “Your assignment has been submitted.” Oh well, completion of my ALTA assignment officially marks the start of my SPRING BREAK(!), which means that I am a happy camper.
This assignment was pretty grueling…but I don’t know if I have ever been more amazed with my writing abilities. This brief involved a lot of different kinds of arguments and it was a challenge just to figure out what should go where and how everything worked together. I was pretty panicky on Friday after I met with my professor, told her about some organizational problems, and realized that I needed to make some major changes to the structure of my paper. I feel very fortunate that our wonderful ALTA TA, Chris, was dedicated enough to come to campus on Saturday morning (a weekend morning during his spring break…) to meet with those of us who needed close-to-last-minute help. Wow.
Anyhow, to be frank, I really do not want to sit at my computer anymore today. It’s Sunday at 2:45pm, and my weekend and spring break are just now starting. I need to get off my chair and go conquer the world…or, at the very least, go clean my room…
