The March Madness

It’s interesting how easily one can become distracted when they know that they have so much due in a few days time.  Thankfully I’m only 400 words short of my 2000 word goal for tonight and thus only have another 2000 to write tomorrow.  I’m actually looking forward to tomorrow’s essay.  I’ll be exploring the topic of sexual repression in regards to The Visions of the Daughters of Albion and Matthew Lewis’ The Monk. I was half tempted to discuss Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen, but honestly it was just a feel good book that was fun to read. I didn’t really feel like tearing it apart and destroying the inherent fun by picking it apart looking for an argument.  My only fear is that the topic I’ve been musing about for the past couple weeks has been overdone and is too obvious for a English 3xx level paper.  Oh well.  I have two papers due that day and it’s a good solid topic. XD

Anyway, I’m going to depart.  6am is waaaay to early for tomorrow.  But sadly work is scheduled.  Oh how I’d love to just call in sick tomorrow.

Winter Blues

Spring can come now. That would be pure awesome. But then with Spring comes exams, and I don’t think I’m ready for them. this semester has gone by far to quickly. I feel swamped because I’m sick and have no energy to keep up or even get ahead like I used to. I don’t want to look at more articles or try to come up with good ideas in class. I want to stay home and slumber away my existence till I feel better. I think a month’s holiday would be perfect.

Christmas Blessings

Mini mandarins oranges


Lovely music


Freshly fallen snow



It’s such a wonderful day.  I just had my third exam which means I’m over half way there to the holidays.  Brandon is in the spare room wrapping my presents (came home a wee bit early hehe), and he’s going on about how lovely they and how excited he is for me to open them.  I almost cried at this thoughtfulness especially when he brought me mandarin oranges as an “early” present.  It’s been a wonderful day and I don’t think I could ask for a better one.  I’m immensely blessed with a wonderful boyfriend who loves me as much as he does.  Parents who have provided for me and love me, a cheeky brother who is adorable and fun.  I’m also blessed to be able to get an education that very few in the world are able to.  I complain about it, but I love every moment of it (well minus writing essays XD).  I have a roof over my head and I have lovely things around me.  I think that this year has been lovely and just full to the brim of blessings.

What are you thankful for this year?

I really should be studying.  I am doing a good job thus far.  But all that enlightenment and Hegellian Dialectics just bore me (well that’s a lie, I do love me some Hegel).  However, I’m just not in the mood to study.  I know I know, how horrible.  But I’m enjoying the time alone this afternoon.  I’ve got some wonderful music on in the background and it’s snowing outside.  I’ll have some tea on soon and enjoy its warmth when I return to my textbooks and the history of Expansionist Europe.

Time has been going by so fast lately.  It’s actually kind of scary because I increasingly feel like I can’t catch up to it.  Yet, at the same time, it’s not so bad, because I’m done with my essays already and soon I’ll be done with exams, hence the title of this blog.  Christmas is slowly creeping up and with that lovely turkey dinners and christmas smells.  I almost want to get a candle just to make my apartment smell like christmas when i’m not cooking christmas related goodies.  Mmmm.

Winter coats.  I FINALLY got a nice fashionable wonderfully warm winter coat.  It’s blue, and felt and has a double row of buttons and i love it.  I took so pictures tonight so in the next couple days I’ll try to get them up.  But I absolutely love it.  I’ve worn it every day so far.  Haha.

Also, in other celebratory news, I’m done my classes for school.  I have a wonderful two – three weeks ahead where once I’m done exams I can relax and enjoy life and it shall be swell.  I cannot wait for christmas and I have such lovely plans laid for the boy.  Mmm.  I love the season.  I love the meaning it holds, the feeling of it all.  Everyone just SEEMS happier and it’s just a nicer place to live in.  The best part though is getting presents for people and wrapping them up.  I’ve put two under our tree and I just love looking at them and looking forward to when they’ll be opened by the people they’re intended for.  It shall be grand.

What are your christmas plans?  Is it a big deal for you?  Or do you treat it like any other day?


Brandon and I have been involved in a war. A war against flies. A couple weeks ago we went over to my mom’s house to take care of her puppies while she was gone and by the time we got back the house was infested with tiny little flies. I have scrubbed and scrubbed my kitchen and we have thrown out every bit of garbage that we could find, even boxes. They seem to have regrouped in the bathroom. But I found the Raid from our Ant infestation two summers ago. And boy did I have fun. There were dozens of little black dead bodies strewn around the bathroom. There are still a few left, but I think our latest offensive finally paid off and soon we’ll have won our little war.

On and On and On and On

It’s been a long while since I last posted. School has started, and amazingly the snow has yet to show its face here in the chilly north. I should amend that my first semester is over half done. It’s crazy how fast the last months have gone by. Midterms are done and over with and my first essays have been met with triumph and failure.

Soon my last class of my extremely long day will begin. We’ll discuss how Europe literally took over the world in a span of 150 years and how they didn’t give a damn about any of the people they met. My prof will miraculously insert pop culture jokes which will continue to astound me as somehow I think profs never do anything except write articles and marks essays.

I’m pretty sure that I do have a permanent frown etched into my forehead from the constant squinting at lines in the novels I have to read. Most of them have been intriguing and have kept my attention long enough for me to finish it without trying to go the Sparknotes route. I have a feeling that I should be reading Candide instead of writing this blog post. However, I have a feeling that procrastination is slowly going to win over my desire to be studious.

Happy November everyone
