i'm learning lessons here, honest
next time, when we have a week to do a paper, i take that WHOLE WEEK. i start the first day. honest.
it's just.. this one took so much pre-prep. i had to find images to analyze. i took a long time to pick those five images. too long. so i was up until nearly 4 a.m. finishing the paper. and actually had to finish-finish it after shakespeare this morning. needless to say, i'm tired. but at least i'm done. and at least i'm all badass, all functioning and stuff today. i'm actually in a good mood. not bad for an old lady working on 3.5 hours of sleep.
i feel bad, though. i not only told chris i couldn't scratch his back before bed last night (that puts him to sleep, but knocks me out too) but didn't make his morning oatmeal before i grumpily hit the sack this morning. neglecting my girlfriendly duties, i am.
i like to work out on my long break between classes, but i pardon myself from the arc trainer when i've had this little sleep. so instead, i did the opposite of working out: i went and read a trashy magazine (in touch
, left behind by my dear sister) at patty's place while eating doritos with buddy & sebastian. i like going to see the dogs (and the bunny). buddy is so great in small doses. i could do without the happy-to-see-me hardon, though. EVERY TIME, i swear.
on a happy note, that lit theory test i thought i bombed? bad? i got a 101. !!! i seriously had a big ol' pit in my stomach when she was passing the tests back.. i mean, i figured i passed
, but i really didn't think i did well
. but i got everything right but one, and i got extra credit right to make up for that. when she went over the answers... for example, one really easy, no-brainer question was about derrida's "of grammatology" - she asked what grammatology meant (it's the science of writing). i guess people answered things like that it was the science of language and stuff. i'm just like, well, okay, i guess i memorize these things alright because it would never occur to me that that
was a difficult question. as for why i thought i did badly.. i thought i rambled on some of the answers and didn't get my point across, but i got them right, so i guess she understood. i even got a little "good!" on some of them. extra credit on one where no extra credit was offered! so, well, phew! :) needless to say, it was a HUGE (good) surprise.
ooh, gonna be late to class.
