salvation undeserved

Okay, let's reiterate.

I had a 2-page essay on Wordsworth's Prelude due this Friday. I knew i should have read said Prelude over the weekend, but i didn't. Last night i started it and gave up around 1am with about a hundred pages left to go.

We've gotten behind in my Russian class (the class i'm auditing, i.e. not getting credit for) so i didn't read Pavlova's Double Life, but this morning we finished Gogol, so we're gonna start Pavlova this Friday. I actually really wanna read the book, but i really literally have no free time. I have a Linguistics assignment due tomorrow which i haven't started, and i really should read these two chapters for Sociology tomorrow (we have a short in-class-essay on the reading at the beginning of each class, so there is a grade incentive for any of you who think i should just skip that reading). And i have to write a 2-page review of a book i didn't even have in my possession until this morning for Friday (but Michael said we won't get a letter grade on it, just credit for doing it, so i'm not worried about skimming and b.s.-ing). And then there's attending all these classes, going to work this afternoon, and going to the Y Thursday afternoon.

Yes, i am insane and yes one might think i want to fail my classes.

Now, we've gotten behind in my Romantics class because of Mountain Day, so today Pat Skarda said that in order for us to be able to "luxuriate" in the Prelude, it will be due next Friday (and the essay scheduled to be due next Friday will then be due the following Friday). That was wonderful news. Sure that means finishing the Prelude, writing a 2-page essay, and reading Mansfield Park over the Break, but that is totally fine with me.
