Actually it’s not that bad. Back on Saturday, I made a Final Study Schedule which allowed me to study in the morning and then have the afternoon and evening to relax. Today I got through all my studying before noon and I have been hanging out in my room like a couch potato the rest of the day. It feels pretty good.
I had a fun weekend. Friday night I hung out with some friends to celebrate the end of classes. Saturday I got together with my family and celebrated the first day of Hanukkah. I definitely ate way too much food but it was totally worth it. Sunday passed by uneventfully until midnight (which I realize is technically Monday but whatever) when one of the dining halls hosted a midnight breakfast. Now, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, and I love eating breakfast foods at all hours, so I managed to keep myself awake and have midnight breakfast. It was awesome!! Thankfully my friend and I got to the dining hall a little early because after we had already gotten our food and sat down, the place was completely mobbed. Another dining hall is having midnight dinner tonight (or tomorrow) so I think I’m going to go to that.
Knitting has progressed. I have about 3-4 inches of the solid purple section which will have to end up being 6 inches so things are going well. I started watching Greek which is a pretty stupid but very enjoyable TV show to watch that doesn’t require a lot of attention.
I finished my book selection for Grenada, The Ladies Are Upstairs, by Merle Collins. It’s a collection of short interconnected stories and I really loved it. It took a little while to get into the groove of reading it because Collins does a great job with the colloquial speech of Grenada. Once you figure it out, however, this book is very difficult to put down. Now that I’m done with Grenada, I think I’m going to move onto Russia. My mother recommended the novel, A Hero of Our Time, by Mihail Lermontov, so I’m planning to read that. So far, this project is going very well and I am totally loving it. Let’s hope I still feel that way after 100 books.
