In the Woods and Wolves Are Chasing Me

Although it is probably the lions, tigers, and bears I should be worried about, oh my!

My final paper for my MBA program is due today, and I’ll probably puke from the stress at some point. I’m sooooo worried it isn’t good enough. Please don’t say that you’re sure it is good. You haven’t seen this 40 page business monstrosity in action.

So I’ve been self-medicating with music to counteract the nerves. Emily and The Woods (another clever reference to the post title, right?) has been keeping me calm and keeping the coffee down. Check her out is you enjoy sweet songbird British voices and indie-folk guitars.

I think this video is so cute! (But I don’t condone stealing bikes as a way to get boys to notice you)

And here’s a more recent video of hers.

I hope to be back to my regularly scheduled blogging tomorrow… if I survive this paper. Argh!!!! Wish me luck in fighting the good academic fight. ;)

    Good luck! How can your paper not be good? Impossible. If they give you a hard time, just let us know and we will protest- picket or start a petition. Whatever you need.

    I have to edit and “quality manage” documents written by people with doctorates and master’s degrees all day. If these folks managed to get through grad school with that level of writing (cough cough) ability, I’m sure you will be fine. If they give you a hard time it’s because academic types are ball busters, not because they know anything about a good thesis paper.

    Music is often a great escape from the epicness of life.

    Good luck! I hope your paper is a success!! I remember, all too well, that sinking feeling of fearing that the work I had put in wasn’t enough.
