This week, I've been working on a number of things, including annotated bibliographies for American Lit and Anthropology, and a critical log detailing what my term paper is going to be about in Romantic literature (I could not find sources for this stupid paper! I had to switch my topic 6 times)! I also had to read tons. Has anyone read Lady Susan by Jane Austen? I'm a die-hard Austen fan, but that book made me want to chuck it across the room. Apparently I do NOT like epistolary novels.
Tomorrow, I'm starting (and maybe finishing??) my Anthropology term paper on the collapse of the Maya. Thursday/Friday I'm finishing up the paper --if I'm not done-- and starting the second book for history that I have to review. Luckily, some of my friends have already started it and said it's much easier than the last one (THANK GOD)!
So that's what school/life is looking like for me at the moment. However, I do have some good news for you!
- That scene that I was having troubles with? Yeah, it's done *smirks* I ended up wiping most of it and redoing it, but I'm SOOO happy with the results. It's smashing! I also got a standing ovation from Mum and Chris. And I don't care what people say, my Mum and my boyfriend are NOT easy people to please. They want me to succeed. Period. No, they won't flat out say something sucks, but they will tell me. Trust me.
- I got another $1000.00 scholarship! WOOHOO! In 3 years, I've now received 4 scholarships! The grand total is now up to $5000! I hope I get more next year too! I guess working hard really does pay off ;)
