This week has been so long. Of course, every week is really, really long this semester. I know so many people who feel that way. Last night Michele and I were talking in German, mostly about how we are so tired and how German never ceases consuming our lives. I mean, I love German, but last night I was so fed up with it. In fact, I just went to bed and then skipped class today to write my close reading on "Tintern Abbey." I felt so irresponsible, but I just couldn't focus anymore. I had already studied German for a couple hours, taken a 90 minute German test, had a 15 minute conversation in Deutsch with Michele, done at least 90 minutes of dedicated, non-distracted homework...and I hadn't even gotten 1 page into my reading assignment and it was so late and I hadn't started writing about "Tintern" yet (I did know what I was writing on, however), and I wanted to go to sleep. So I did. And this morning I woke up, showered, started my paper, went to work, and then skipped German because I didn't get my reading done and because I really had to write this paper. So yep. That's that. I still feel really irresponsible and guilty. Hence this long justification.
Anyway. Eloquence is failing me right now. I am rather pleased with my paper on "Tintern" though. Especially considering I wrote the outline really, really late at night, the first half of it when I was half asleep at 7 this morning, and the 2nd half fairly quickly just now. But still. Trying to write this post I just feel like I'm rambling and rambling and rambling with no purpose. But there is a purpose. The purpose is to CELEBRATE FRIDAY!
Things that are wonderful about how today is Friday, in chronological order:
- Getting to watch Bones
- Sledding at Soldier Hollow with the Ward
- Waking up sans alarm tomorrow morning
- Sutdying Preach my Gospel with some of my favorite girls ever on Sat morning
- House/Apartment hunting
- (Hopefully) the BYU vs. Utah basketball game
- Catching up on life
- And many more...
