I've been in the same room in the library for the past 8 hours, writing a paper. I have 8 pages - 4 of which were modified from a previous essay. That's such poor efficiency I don't even know what to say. The great thing about this room is that it's a seminar room, so I can play my music and sit at this big long table, all by myself. Fortunately it's a 7-10 page paper, so I'm in pretty good shape right about now.
In fact, I even have time to go eat and plan out this waltz lesson that I'm supposed to teach tonight.
Tonight I also get to face the wrath of BLAST President Nikki for not having sold any magazine subscriptions. Truthfully, I would rather teach 5 private lessons and donate the stupid money to BLAST than sell 5 magazine subscriptions to people who don't even want them in the first place. Ugh. I should never go into marketing or sales. I would suck a lot.
Anyway, I'm in pretty good shape, or I feel like I am, in regards to my work. It's a huge weight off my shoulders to have gotten the bulk of this paper out of the way. The thing that's going to suck is my Reading & Interpretation paper due next week, which I haven't started, and which is also supposed to be a research paper of 8-10 page length, and that is NOT going to be based off of a previously existing paper. Boo, boo on 200-level classes that make you do ridiculous amounts of work.
I had an amazing Thanksgiving break, thanks to a multitude of people who I got to see, most especially my family. There are no words to describe the wonderfulness of my family, and how much I miss them and love being around them. *sigh* And a special thanks to Dan and Janet - always good to get beaten up when I come home. Nobody here at NU will do it.
Well, I should go grab some food and work on that teaching thing. So much for my brain to do. Wouldn't it be great if people's heads expanded as they put mor eknowledge in? You'd instantly know who was more well-read, or academically gifted. Also some people's heads would be huge and some would be small - it would be a whole new form of discrimination. And who doesn't want more of that?
Hm, now that I've started making vaguely politically incorrect jokes, I think it's a sign that I need to stop writing.
