♬ Finally finished my Incomplete from last semester, which ended up taking ridiculously longer than it should have. But at least that means I have an official GPA now. 3.733. That's so much fucking better than it's ever been in my life, seriously. (No, really; my GPA from St. Kate's was ~2.7, I think.)
♬ I'm thinking of writing some fics again. Although unfortunately I got mad at myself for spending too much time doing useless things and threw away a bunch of pages of a long fic I'd been writing, so about half of it's lost now. Oh well, I'd have a lot of rewriting to do anyway.
♬ Listen to Hester go squeeeee about books: Finally actually read The Master and Margarita. (I'd started it years ago and wasn't able to finish it then because I was being a dumbass.) Somehow that's just such a strangely adorable book. It doesn't hurt my perception of it of course that by the time I read it I already knew that Bulgakov really was a pretty cool guy and didn't afraid of Stalin. Also, now I'm reading Dictionary of the Khazars, which I've only just started but which I highly recommend.
♬ Got registered for Summer and Fall semesters. (Which apparently = EPIC EXCITEMENT!!11 in my world....)
Astronomy 1001: Exploring the Universe Geography 3161: Europe
Norwegian 1003: Intermediate Norwegian Earth Science 1007: History of Life on Earth, from Microbes to Mammoths History 3959: How to Do History History 3101: Introduction to Medieval History Music 1051: Piano for Non-majors
SQUEEEEEEEEE. I think I may actually squee more about school than about most other things these days. -.-
♬ Also, as implied by the above point: I AM TAKING FUCKING PIANO LESSONS NEXT FALL. To understand why this is a source of extreme excitement for me, you have to understand that I'm not even remotely musically inclined, but have wished I were for a long time. So this is like... equal parts excitement and terror. I am going to attempt to actually succeed at playing a musical instrument. Never done that before. D:
♬ Also, hopefully going to teach myself Latin over the summer. For some reason, the U decided to be evil and not offer beginning Latin Summer semester, and I won't have time to take it Fall semester... but I do have to learn it, since I've become enamored of medieval history.
♬ Still writing Epic Giant Term Paper of Doom. It's due in a week, oh noes. -.- Actually, it's not that giant, but it should be a little over 30 pages when it's done, which is certainly longer than anything I've written before. And I remember in middle school when writing a two-page paper was DO NOT WANT D: D: D:
♬ New season of Doctor Who! You have no idea how happy this makes me. Especially since Eleven is adorable~~~~.
♬ Thinking of finally sitting down and reading the original manga Sailor Moon. The anime used to be of severe sentimental value to me, so....
...Aaaand, that's really all I have.
So tell me, how are you, flist?
