Last Saturday...

...I was at the Issaquah Farmers Market. And, I got on video:


Make sure to check out Chris Pirillo's website at shop.lockergnome.com. I've browsed around on the site a couple of times, and there are some really cool nerd items available for purchase!

Finals Week

I probably shouldn't be blogging, since I have an exam in three hours, but I've been studying all morning, and I don't think this test will be unreasonable. So, on two of the last papers I turned in, one about Thomas Paine and one about Fort Duquesne (hey, they rhyme!) I got an AB and an A, respectively. That, as far as I'm concerned, is a fine way to end the semester!

I don't have an Honors class next semester, since junior year is set aside for Honors students to study abroad. In fall I'm planning to take three history classes and two literature classes. That's the current plan, anyway. I need two more European history classes and one more American class, and then HIS 101 and HIS 102, but I also need another Theology class. This is where things get interesting, because I don't think they offer history classes at ACD, which is where I'm going in spring, so I have to take it here sometime. They do offer European history classes there (obviously) so I might drop one of my European classes here. I would hate to do that, but... need to do what needs to be done. We'll see.

Let's see ... yesterday was my last Sunday at Fairview until fall. I won't be in a dorm next semester, I'll be in school housing instead! I'm planning to go on Dr. Moldenhauer's Italy trip this January, and go straight from there to Ireland! I really can't wait to get to Ireland, since I bet it will be a fantastic adventure!

Oh, I'm planning to get a new laptop when I get home, probably a Toshiba satellite. Karl, would you like to buy my current laptop off me? I'll sell it to you for cheap - how about $70?

Happy Mother's Day, Mom!

It's the good old end-of-spring-semester panic attacks. Again. I just turned in a 10-page paper today (about Julius Caesar and Richard III) and you'd think I'd be able to calm down, right?

Nope. I have five more short-writes to write by tomorrow sometime, and then another nine pages about Fort Duquesne by Monday. Then I have a take-home essay to write for one of my finals. Summer will be a relief if only because I'll be done with homework until fall. Good. Grief.
