more school talk

Kim handed back our papers in class today (all but 3 -- she was up until 3:30 this morning). She said she wanted me to talk to her about my paper, because she had really waffled on my grade and could be convinced to up it a point. So i was feeling really nervous about my grade and flipped to the back where the grade was as soon as she handed it to me. 22/25 (= 88%) I read her comments (never let it be said that she doesn't really spend an hour per paper) and i'm not really sure i deserve a 92%. And i have class during her office hours, so i e-mailed her tonight to ask to make an appointment for Thursday afternoon (afternoon classes are cancelled because of Otelia Cromwell Day). That gives me a day and a half in which to figure out what to say to her.

Speaking of which, why are my 2 favorite classes on Thursday afternoons and therefore cancelled for Otelia Cromwell Day? (I don't plan on attending any of the events except for Sarah Jones at 7:30. But i should take my Romantics midterm Wednesday night, not put it off until Thursday afternoon. Right?)

Also, i was talking to Ariana today and she said Doug is teaching a class at Mt. Holyoke next semester, around which she is scheduling her entire schedule. Tuesday/Thursday mornings, she doesn't know what time. I didn't even think to ask what the class is about (does it matter?). T/R mornings i'm currently planning on auditing Women Mystics and taking Language Acquisition. Those can both be dropped in a heartbeat for Doug. Why do none of the other 5 Colleges have Spring '03 course schedules up yet? *pouts*

"Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand. I don't care, I'm still free; you can't take the sky from me."

I had begun to form an idea of where i wanted my nano to go, so of course it promptly started spiralling away into nomansland. So i'm just writing. I have no idea where it's going. The protagonist seems more committed to her independence and the secondary character much meaner than i had thought. I'm thinking perhaps she wasn't meant to stick around all that long, even though i wanted her to. We shall see, i suppose. (Or rather i will, since i don't think i'll be sending excerpts to anyone.)

tonight's Buffy episode ("Him")

Sophie was complaining about how the show really hasn't been light and fun so far this season, despite Joss's claims. Also, it hasn't really felt together. Tonight's episode was a total answer to that. I say "Bravo!" Classic Season 1. And i'm way excited about next week's episode.
