this is me

è perché son certo che con te la vita è

I wrote my Russian & Soviet Film paper in just under three hours (8:30-11:20) last night. It's 5.5 pages long. Why, yes, I am amazing, thank you for noticing.

I'm including the paper behind a cut, just because it's such an obscure topic that I doubt anyone'll be "borrowing" it. Plus, who knows? Maybe someone out there's curious enough to read it.

This is going to sound kind of ridiculous, but I had a lot of fun writing that paper. I know, I bitched and moaned about it for weeks, but it was really enjoyable. I think I actually missed analyzing books/movies. (For the uninitiated, I was a total English-whore in high school. I took the AP classes & exams, was always a teacher's pet, and received an award or two for my writing. I started college as an English major and changed majors within a week. Why? I hated the pretentious BS I had to read/write, and analyzing medieval Scottish poetry just wasn't any fun. So. Now you know.) But yeah, maybe grad school for Russian literature/film is an option?

I have various French papers I have yet to edit/write/rewrite, but that's okay. I have a Math test tomorrow that I kind of want to do well on. I have summer course registration this evening, followed by class and then a study group for Russian.

All I've eaten this week has been pop-tarts and peanut butter. I think I might've had ramen once or twice, too, but I'm not certain. I'm just not hungry or in the mood to eat anything elaborate.

The weather has been amazing this week. It's been in the 70s for the last few days. No need for sweatshirts or jeans! Very pleasant. It'll be going back into the 40s tomorrow, but apparently it'll get better this weekend? We'll see.
