So yes, I am this organized [insane]; I have basically figured out my fall courses.
choosing between C, 30, 40 (apparently 30 is awful but that’s about where I’d fit…)
choosing between French Feminism and French witches….yes, you read that right.
Language and Culture intro!
trying to take two, but as you can see, I already have 3 courses which would technically put me over the limit but….definitely taking Problems in K-12 Education (US and the World) and hoping to take Stat 101 Psychological Statistics (which would count for my math…I don’t actually want to take it, but I’m not ever going to want to)
I really want to take Silkscreen; only problem is that it would take up my LIFE. Also there is a loitering class…um, yes.
Bah. We will see.
Any way I combine these, none of my classes would meet on Friday. HOLLAH!!!!!!

Je suis très occupée avec mes travailles, mais c’est pour beaucoup d’argent alors c’est pas un problème, même si ce saurait trop difficile. Alors il y’a un problème plus grand, qui me fait mal, donc c’est quoi? Mon luggage! J’ai seulement une valise, pas deux, et j’ai besoin de voyager à autobus alors plus que ça serait trop de toute façon. Bah. Je crois que ca serait difficile de re-faire ma valise :( mais il faut que je le fasse. C’est tout.
The lighting in my room is horrible— my lamps are all gone, and now I only have the fluorescent wall lamps to brighten the bare walls of my cell. I’ve packed up all my things and moved them away, save for a month’s worth of clothes, my linens, and some other necessities. Soon I’ll be relocating to another empty room with horrible lighting, and I’ll spend my days cleaning more empty rooms in preparation for new inhabitants. Next year, someone will live in the room I called home (or, more likely, use it as their common room instead) and I will live in someone else’s room, where they studied and slept and were passionate. While talking to a close friend tonight, the topic of Commencement and dissolving relationships came up. His friends were having trouble letting go, saying that they’d never see their friends again, and he said he replied, first warning that he was acting cold-hearted, with something along the lines of ‘it doesn’t really matter.’ I had to agree with him; there’s nothing we can do about time passing, about friendships passing, about the waves of people that come in and out of our lives. Our relationships are only relevant in the present, where they are still alive. We’ve just got to keep floating in our sea and see whatever flotsam happens to get stuck in our current whirlpool.
