For some reason I feel the most need to blog when I am crazy busy with no REAL time to spare.
It is almost ten on Saturday morning. In two and a half hours until the CAO leadership somethingorother I said I'd go to for Senate, and History Club. That lasts until four, and then ... well, I guess I will have a few hours before going to the Acadia to celebrate Ali's getting into grad school. Before I can dream of grad school, let's talk about all the great stuff I'll be doing this week!
My assignment book for today reads:
Morning w/ Visser, Central Library- Never happened :(
Lingerie? - probably won't happen, but I DO need lingerie.
Bar w/ Ali
Too Much Love- I don't want to go to Too Much Love. I want to stay here and watch cartoons with Alan.
Apply for Jobs, internships
Noon Rally at Capital-- CAN'T GO BECAUSE OF CAO!!!
Read: Polybius, Foucault
I've heard that Polybius is boring, so I think if I read anything it is going to be "The Use of Pleasure" by Michel Foucault... or maybe his Short Introduction-which I got from the mail room yesterday... and read during economics.
I am really excited about Foucault. For Queer Studies, I had originally thought about doing my paper as a historic analysis of the significance of Molly Houses and gay bars for networking... but my interest waned, and I ended up not doing the required work... So I talked to Professor Lowe yesterday, and now I am super jived up to write about Foucault. My thesis is going to be something along the lines of, "What the ___ Is Foucault trying to say in the second volume of his History of Sexuality?" It's great, because though Foucault comes up all the time, I don't really know that much about him, so this paper will help me get started. So I want to do that... and I know that I can't justify sleeping, or being lazy any longer for any reason, because while I did work hard this week, I could have worked harder, and I have no excuse.
I also need to do a Queer studies post class response from two classes ago. :P pphhhhbbt.
Oh, and let's see, what else:
My Abeng rough draft. I submitted my first three, hastily written pages for peer review on Thursday, and my peers were very helpful. Now I need to finish that by next Thursday.
Besides that, I guess it's not so bad (NOT REASON ENOUGH TO BE LAZY!)
My unstarted numismatics(study of coins) project is looming in the background, as well as the nagging internship and job gremlins that will not let me rest until I apply for them... yet I can't bring myself to do it... just like I can't bring myself to loosen the strings on my guitar so it doesn't warp, even though it will take three seconds... brb.
I didn't want to do it because I tuned it up so nicely last week... but I'd rather tune it again, than not be able to play at all when the neck is bent... Sigh.
So, that was easy. Do I take that as initiative to kick it into 2nd gear? To put on some pants and start my day?
I think so.
