Dear April, I hate you!

I really, really, really hate the month of April! I keep thinking that after college, I won't feel so much animosity for April. Of course, there's always the chance that I'll go to work teaching comp at a college somewhere, in which case April will be back on my list. It's a vicious cycle. The bottom line is this: April is hell. It's nearly the end of the semester, which is always hectic.  This semester, in addition to school, I'm also teaching and tutoring, which involves grading papers. There's only about three weeks of school left and I still have two long paper's to write, two finals, two discussion posts, and a response paper.  I am literally going to pull out my hair!  I just keep on hoping that the summer hurries up and gets here, I need a break!

On a good note, our oven is fixed!  The repairman came on Monday and installed the new panel so it works again. Thank goodness, because I have been so annoyed not having an oven to bake in. That said, I haven't exactly had much time to use it this week, but I'm hoping that this weekend I'll have time to bake a New York-Style Crumb Cake from a recipe that I found on Noble Pig's blog.  I got all of the ingredients when we went to Wal-Mart earlier this week; for now I'm just waiting for a moment to present itself, or at least a moment that's not totally and completely wrong.  There is no way I can bake a coffee cake at midnight, for example. I can't want to try it, anyway, it's going to be blueberry!

I just realized, upon reading that last sentence, that I'm probably rambling, so I may have to call this quits for the time being. I have to work tomorrow, so I really need to go to bed anyway. It's late, I'm tired, and more than anything I'm worn out. Friday, I go to the Spring Writing Center conference, and then, the weekend is here!  Of course, I have a ton of homework, but I enjoy the weekends nonetheless because I get the chance to stay home and spend some time with Matt, who I miss when I spend all of my time at the school.

Okay, I really am going now.  Good night.
