-my away message for most of Thursday (the last day of classes this semester)
I participated in my myth class. In my Linguistics class we watched a video on dialects (Boston represent!). After lunch at the post office i got free low-quality hot chocolate and a yearbook, and my mail included a paycheck and a Christmas card from my parents. In my two post-lunch classes we had sugary goodness. I learned that Jessica in my Modern British Poetry class who is hardcore and brilliant and whom i was somewhat awed/intimidated by and thought was a senior is only a sophomore and seems willing to hang out with me over J-term. I successfully recited “The Second Coming.” In Soc class i chatted with Sam from Hampshire. I really should have gotten her phone number because she’s very nice and intelligent and thoughtful and it would be cool to hang out sometime.
Allie came to the English Department party at my urging, for which i am very happy. She didn’t realize there was a costume contest, somehow missed my numerous mentions of it in here. (Yes honey, i know you said you skim everyone’s; i’m just teasing. Besides, given the insane amount of posting i was doing recently, i expect most everyone’s been skimming.) I wasn’t in costume either, though, just dressed nice ‘cause i felt like looking classy but couldn’t come up with anyone to be. Anyway, we hung out with Jessica a lot and saw Jessie and various other people i know. I’m used to being the person at the social gathering who doesn’t know anyone, so it was kinda weird being all comfortable and social while the person i was with did the awkward I-don’t-know-anyone thing. (You did have a good time, though, right? I really hope so.) Then she came to my house and i had some real food (although i had lots of hummus and pita bread at the party, so i wasn’t totally malnourished) and then we hung out in my room before she had to go to her evening class. Yayness.
Today’s papers? Milton redux. I have never had so little motivation or focus in my life. The papers are too short and are just bad papers, but i have an exam in each class and a solid B or better as a current grade, so as long as i can force myself to really study i should be fine. I’m just really relieved to have them done. Two down, two to go. The next seven days are gonna be pretty much nonstop, what with papers and exams and work and everything. But one week from tomorrow i am home. Praise be.
