I'm not going to fail! Hooray!

So, i have this Language Acquisition paper due Tuesday and today i finally went to the stats lab to use the program to search the child language transcripts to get data to write this 5-page paper which counts for 30% of my grade. Well, the search went through, but i couldn't see any results. I remember that happening when i was first learning to use the program, but the woman i was working with and i figured out what we needed to do fairly quickly. I must have thought it was intuitive because i didn't write anything down and today i tried various things but just could not get it to work. So i left phonemail for my 2 friends in the class and e-mailed the professor and the TA. See, sometimes i can manage to get over my stubborn refusal to ask for help. Anyway, Gillian called me back while i was at dinner and then saw me at dinner and we'll meet at 1:30 tomorrow [edited to add that Somebody definitely loves me because i was supposed to be filming a group project at 1:30 tomorrow, but it got changed to 7:30]. "We will beat this thing," she says. (As this semester nears its end we know lots about our professor's kids and would be happy to know them in person, but we know very little about language acquisition.)

I changed my topic for Am. Lit. because i have nothing to say about The Awakening or The House of Mirth, but i am confident that i can actually write this paper.

I did research for my Women's Studies paper and may actually manage to write a decent paper of the appropriate length.

Jelena came by my room and i helped her with planning her essay. She insists i know everything -- and says once i take economics i'll be fully rounded :)
