Now that the boyfriend is gone to Seattle, I suddenly have more time to focus on homework and reading and sleeping and other good do-by-yourself things. I'm taking two classes this semester -- 4th Semester American Sign Language and Intro to Contemporary Art -- and they've been pretty cool, more or less...
The ASL class turned out to be harder than I originally expected. I spent two or three hours practicing for the first midterm but still only got 79% on it. That's the lowest grade I've ever received on a midterm. Ever. So now I'm all paranoid that I won't get an A in the class. So I'm working hard to get 100 percent on EVERYTHING in that class now.
As for Contemporary art, I think I got a shot at an A. My paper is going to be about Damien Hirst, this guy who dips sharks in formaldehyde as a metaphor of death. I don't quite understand it yet, but I think I will once this paper gets written.

Listening to: The Edge of Glory by GAGA. An amazing song, by the way. Like nothing she's ever done before. Kind of a Springsteen-esque anthem with a dance twist. There's this pretty cool sax solo in the middle that gives it some class, and she soars on these high notes I didn't know she could sing when she came out with the Fame. By the looks of things, this is going to be a pretty good album, methinks.
Things Going On Today: Laundry, no work.
Blessings: Headphones, TA labs, and... sharks.
