I am especially boring right now, what with my list of crap:
transcribe essay notes
write essay outline and give to prof to review (Sun/Mon)
edit this week's group submission in Strategic Mgmnt class
take a mid-term in Negotiation & Conflict Resolution class
sit through Business & Society class
write my mid-term essay for AmNovel class (Mon/Tue)
write my journal assignment for AmNovel class (Mon/Tue)
go to AmNovel class (Tue)
- write my short essay for British/Irish Fiction class (Tue/Wed) at least I have a topic...
- go to British/Irish Fiction class (Wed)
- check for questions/things to grade in my course (
- WORK (
I will now stop striking things off the list, because that act itself is getting tedious—I've actually finished a bunch of things! Will shortly resume regular blogging.]
So, here are some random notes in case you missed them:
Mel was accepted to a Super Big Deal conference
despite having tried to convince us, six weeks ago, that she had "no earthly chance of getting in
[BitchPhD's] Pseudonymous Kid explains astronomy
Caleb published his first article
, "The Fourth and the First: Abolitionist Holidays, Respectability and Race," in this month's American Quarterly
dutifully performed stick-meme functions.
Rhonda has kept a low-profile in the commenting portion of the academic blogosphere, but she deserves readers! Go play on her blog, she's nice. Plus, you get pictures of the Alps
As for me, I'm still moving through my list. I did get a nice little surprise e-mail yesterday, which was my grade on my British/Irish fiction mid-term: a 95 (out of 100). That includes a 50/50 on the first essay, which was "very good" and a 45/50 on the second, with a note that I could have delved more into blah blah blah blah which I already knew...because I wrote the second essay in only 30 minutes since I got all stoked and spent 90 minutes on the first one. Ooops. Bad time management. Seems to be a theme.
