Here’s what’s happening:
1. I’m desperately trying to figure out what to do with my summer. So far I have research that will last until the end of July, a few hours of an office job that will last until the end of June, and a solar systems class that could potentially kick my butt (but that would get rid of my very last gen. ed.). But I don’t have an official job that will earn me a decent amount of money. And this, for a girl who’s planning on graduate school, is problematic. I’ve had two interviews so far, one for groundskeeping and one for a crazy job that would entail peddling gas cards to various local businesses. I didn’t get either position, which I guess is good as neither of them sounded like they were up my alley, but still. I think my only option may be to beg for a library position. I just want to get this all straightened out because I have bigger fish to fry right now (see below).
2. I have six papers to write before the end of the semester. The semester ends on May 11th. I also have two large final exams to take. I also have a presentation to put together. I also have to do basic things, like eat, sleep, and attempt social interaction.
3. As my Politics and Film class is two hours long, we traditionally have a ten minute break after the first hour. During said break this evening, half the class (led by the professor, I might add) went into an informational session that was taking place down the hall, and stole leftover pizza. And cookies. And no one stopped us.
4. My second short story for Advanced Fiction Writing has progressed exactly a paragraph. It’s about cannibalism in space. And when/if I ever get a large chunk of time during which to sit down and write it, I will be absolutely thrilled.
