I feel like every time I blog, the only thing I've got to say is how much work I have. Well, I have a lot of work, and there's a big test (exam, he calls it, but I don't think it's weighed enough to really be an exam) tomorrow in politics. This is actually a bit frustrating. Last semester, politics was the class where I breezed through with pretty much a 100%. (Okay, I lost one point, but shit, 100% sounds a lot better than 99.9%.) Now, I'm struggling for a B+. Depending on the grade I got on my most recent paper, I might be in A- range, not that I'd be there for long since this exam will surely drag me back down. Either way, I really hope I did well on that paper. I don't want to fall below a B+, and a sold A would put me comfortably into the B+ range.
Columbia app is due 3/15. Northwestern on 5/1. I need to write Barnard a cover letter with my class descriptions included over the weekend. Tomorrow, I plan on chilling at Starbucks with a good book. A real book, mind you. Reading for leisure is something I miss. I have both my favorite Discworld books with me (Night Watch
and Going Postal
), but I might want to re-read Watchmen
in preparation for the movie. I don't have any other books with me at school, so that's pretty much it for my options.
I've been listening to the Tutanchamun OCR quite a bit lately, and I've got to admit that I really like it. I'm not sure the music's quite appropriate for the setting, but it's certainly lovely music with a good blend of different moods and composition. That's probably my biggest issue with Marie Antoinette. I know it's meant to be accurate to the era, but half the songs have the same rhythmic structure, and all
the songs have the same mood, which drives me mad. Well, it drives me bored, and the boredom drives me mad. But anyway, my point is that I really want to get my hands on those two Tutanchamun DVDs circulating around.
Also, one of these days, I really need to start a friending meme over at foreignmusicals
