Day 54. First Weeks.
Status: Lord of the Rings, pg94/1077.
I don’t think I’m really taking this reading challenge seriously enough. I mean, I have absolutely stagnated in the last couple of days, which really breaks my heart. I will do this, damn it. However, I have a sneaking suspicion that despite all this determination, it may no longer be that realistic.
I’ve hit the first week of university, and forgot again how much work really does go into study. I have to think up two research topics for my courses and write the equivalent of an honours project in a month. Oh God. I can feel the heart attack coming along already. I already harbour fantasies of drowning my lecturer due to her unbelievable disinterest in science, which has huge repercussions when you are teaching Law and Medicine. I understand that the average law student doesn’t know the difference between Gattaca and the real world, but unfortunately for her, I’m no normal law student, and will strangle her if she talks about the supposed “intelligence gene”. I know that there are few geneticists out there, but I can assure you that there is no such thing as a single intelligence gene that can be turned on and off. It is so rarely that simple.
In other news, I may have accidentally sort of on purpose volunteered to produce a musical. I am still working two days a week, which is a day more than I probably should be, I still want to be playing frisbee and make it to the gym three times a week, and I’m still playing my weekly D&D games.
-breathes- it’ll be ok. I’m sure.
But sorry for today’s uninformed rant. As it is indeed Saturday, I spent it playing the aforementioned D&D. Tomorrow will be some speed study and coming up with some kind of essay question for my Law and Med class before continuing to pack up my room to help the boyfriend move in, until I collapse on the couch in exhaustion. But don’t worry, in between I will post parts of Shin’s journal, catch up on the two book reviews I have yet to complete, and try to finish the two side books I’m reading as well as seriously crack into LoTR. I will not be defeated by this book again. Third time’s the charm.
In the meantime, stay positive. And keep up the good work.
I’m just going to leave this here, because….
