"On the highway of regret the winds of change are blowing wild and free"

3-5 page synthesis of my semester’s Blackboard postings for WST 150 = most self-indulgent (could i have used the word “I,” particularly in the phrase “I feel” more often? -- well, yes; i do have some standards after all) and full of bullshit (is heterocentricity even a word?) paper ever. I’m still not sure what they were looking for, but i basically ripped apart 2 of the articles we read for 4 double-spaced pages; proof that i am a humanities person after all. I mentioned other issues (most of which i also bitched about), quoted Ani DiFranco, and almost made “working within the system” analogies to Angel and The Matrix. My favorite thing, though? In this my last paper for Introduction to Women’s Studies at Smith College, i wrote, “As an ideal, capitalism is right up there with communism -- people demand things, other people supply those things; a competitive market keeps prices low and quality high.”

The semester of crap is over. I have learned that it really does help my work ethic to care about what i’m doing, or at least it hinders it when i don’t care. We’ll see how my next few academic endeavors go. I need to just suck it up and do the work, preferably well. And i really need to not procrastinate so much. I used to be able to do well without trying, but that time is past, and i need to get over it and just work hard. This summer is going to kick ass, though, as is next semester, because i said so.

Can we just pause for a second on the fact that i am halfway done with college ? This is frightening. I really do not feel like i have done enough to be halfway done.

Damn, real food tomorrow night and possible celebratory alcohol sounds good. suspectplaces?

In other news, i really like this song, though i find the Joan Osborne cover more aesthetically pleasing. However, the chorus “make you feel my love” is way too reminiscent of the attempted rape scene in “Seeing Red” (restrains self from ranting about what a bad idea that plot twist was).
