Your petition to drop Political Science 111 from the Winter 2000 semester
has been approved. Your academic record should reflect this shortly.

Stephenie Bulmon

With these words, the two-month process of my late withdrawal from Poli Sci 111 has come to a close. I received these exact words via e-mail earlier this morning. Not only have I finally won victory on this count, but now my reinstatement is much more likely. I mean, if the Scholastic Standing Committee actually acted this quickly, and this reasonably, about my late-withdrawal petition, they should hopefully act likewise when it comes to reinstatement. I still don't know when the whole process will be completed, but let's just say that I've reached the base of Mt. Everest.

All things considered, this has been a very busy, but very enjoyable week. Aside from my normal classes, driving, and social life, I've accomplished quite a bit this week. One downside to this week has been that I've been forced to switch discussion sections of Japanese 101, but I won't have another Poli Sci 111 in the making since I've never been "officially" registered for J101.

If only I had any time tonight, I'd go out and destroy both brain cells. Hell, I could apply some of my Japanese knowledge: Saki onegaishimasu.

But, I have to go to Briarwood first thing tomorrow morning with my mentees, before I drive Nite Owl. I think I'll use Sunday to sleep and catch up with class stuff, in which I've been slacking a bit over these last two days. It seems that I can always do more towards the beginning of a week than at the end. Anyway, I'm just going to keep working as hard as I can, and not give up when stuff seems too hard, and I should be all right.
