I’m not dead! Can you believe it?
OK, so I know the whole “I’m not dead” bit is getting pretty old. You see, I’ve been finishing up my last semester of college. And you’ve heard how seniors are always the busiest, and yet the least motivated to finish their homework?
Fortunately I’ve not suffered much of the senioritis syndrome. Instead, I’ve just taken somewhat easy classes. Linguistics? Homework is done in five minutes. Rhetoric? I don’t even read the book anymore and I still ace most of the little quizzes.
That’s how easy some of these classes are for me. Case in point: in the rhetoric class, to illustrate the importance of metaphor and language in carrying meaning between people… we spent 3/4ths of the class time watching an episode of Star Trek. “Darmok” was certainly entertaining, but sometimes I question whether we needed to spend so much time (about 40-45 minutes) watching it just to illustrate this bit.
On the other hand, my co-curricular/extra-curricular activities have eaten up more time than they have in previous semesters. I’m working like four-ish jobs (one of which I’m getting practicum credit for). I just finished my senior honors project (thank goodness that’s done! though I did enjoy it). And I’m in the women’s chorus of the drama department’s spring musical, “The King and I.”
Thus I am rarely back to my apartment for good until about ten o’clock at night. (Except Wednesdays. Wednesdays are wonderful days.)
