nightwatch

Ordinary's just not good enough today.

Here's what's going on.

This week is much less stressful than the last few weeks, although I'm still fairly busy. I totally rocked the free world (and several small, third-world African countries, in which there were multiple rock concert benefits held in my honor) in Russian today. So THAT'S what happens when you study! Gosh.

I got an A on my French test, but I still have to write the five page paper. That's okay; only two people have even done it. Dr. J bashed my Tolstoy paper, but hey, at least I didn't have a three-page paragraph this time (sigh). Um, I register for classes next week. I plan on taking Int. Russian II, Survey of Russian Lit II, Modern Russian Novel, French Lit II, and JINS. Hopefully I'll get into the JINS class I want.

I'm kind of vaguely thinking about studying abroad at some point in the next 1.5 years. I'm too late for next semester, and I'm spending next summer at a Russian immersion program, so that leaves senior year. I'm leaning toward second semester (when I plan on graduating), but is that even possible? I have no clue. Well, regardless of study abroad, I'll be heading to Russia when I graduate, so it really doesn't matter.

NaNoWriMo starts in t-minus 7 days! I'm not planning on actually doing a full novel, I just want to finish up one I began over the summer. It's rather depressing and in the first person, present tense, and I'm truly passionate about it; it's radically different from what I normally write. Kara is planning on participating as well, so I'll have someone to motivate/motivate me, which will be totally awesome.
