So I postponed my pending exam that was to be this Tuesday for health reasons (I had a pretty bad fever over the weekend and still am sick now but it’s gotten better). It’ll be on the 25th instead (and I have a different exam on the 23rd and a dentist appointment on the 24th, urrghh!) so on the one hand it’s great to have more time but on the other if I hadn’t been forced to just sleep and do nothing over the weekend, I’d have preferred having my exam over with. But life is what it is. No time to feel sorry for myself, I still have today to get better and then I need to do some SERIOUS studying. I don’t know how much blogging I’ll be able to do but hopefully I’ll manage a couple of posts.
So, in the last four days I wrote my thesis paper. Yes, you read that right. It has hell, it was four days of absolute stress, four days of reading so many papers that all words just lost all their meaning. Frustration, depression, anger. It also was four days when I fell in love with Pride and Prejudice all over again. Reading Austen, or well, reading about reading Austen, has shown me that there is so much more to the novel than meets the eye when you read it for the first time. However, some opinions are just wacko. I wish I could have used that sentence in my paper haha. It was an interesting experience but I must say, I hate the academic style of writing (both reading academic papers and trying to write them). I felt as pretentious as Lady Catherine. One of the funniest parts was when I had too much written M used a Project Runway quote on me (“Use your editing eye.”) He was also a sweetheart, helping me figure out how to make footnotes go from number one in each chapter. Anyways, I spent the whole weekend ball and chained to my computer and didn’t leave the flat save for walking the pig, but I did go out to dinner on Friday night and here’s what I wore.
