Oh no! What have I gotten myself into?
(after turning in an assignment) I did it. I can do this.
(staring down another 20 hours plus of reading) OMG, this is a lot of work, how will I keep up and manage it all?
(after completing 3 weeks of schoolwork) I did it. I am doing this.
(laying down on the couch or bed because my body is too tired to move) Why did I choose this particular form of punishment and is it too late to cut out?
(after a great discussion in class or reading) Wow, this is really cool - I get to do this.
