Clearly I'm bad at this. I figured I should have one last wrap up before I disappear again. I got  my grades back last week, and they were as follows:

Ancient Astronomies = A
Beowulf = A
Roman Comedy = A-
Music Theory = A-
Voice Performance = A

You are looking at... or at least reading the words of... a soon-to-be Junior with a GPA of 3.85 for the semester and 3.77 overall. *preens* AHEM. Moving right along...

So NO clue how I managed an A- in Latin, I must have done MUCH better on the final than I thought, or everyone did much worse (since my professor grades on a curve), both rather scary and unlikely occurrences... but I don't suppose I'll know until I get the exam back... I also am rather surprised about the A in Beowulf, because I expected an A- or so, but I guess my final paper was better than I thought it was? Anyhow, HOWEVER it happened, I got the A's, and so I'm not going to complain! 

Also, one last dose of photos that I took over the last few weeks at college.

Well, I really can't think of anything else to say, other than enjoy the rest of your Memorial days, and I'll update when anything interesting happens!

just one more day....

and then finals week... one more day... and... oh dear... The question is will I survive?

I have WAY too many lines of Anglo-Saxon to finish between now and tomorrow morning. I DO want to finish the poem... but am highly skeptical of my actual ability to do so before then. I might be able to manage it between now (10 PM) and 2 AM... since I already finished my Latin... My wrist hurts from all the writing!

Second question. HOW AM I ALMOST A JUNIOR ALREADY? Where did my first two years of college go? And more importantly, how will I SURVIVE next semester?

Ankle update

I'M DONE. I just need to make it though finals!!
I'm not going to do anything this afternoon but sleep, watch Dr. Who and ... well... ok... maybe work on my paper. The weather is gorgeous too.

I know I'm tired when...

1. I think scyld, ond, and Wiglafes are proper translations for shield, and, and Wiglaf's
2. I'm exhausted, even after going to bed at midnight (granted, I did wake up at seven which I'm not used to, but still...)
3. I stumble over my words when I KNOW what I'm saying.
4. I fall down the last two stairs and sprain my ankle because apparently I didn't realize I hadn't reached the bottom.

*SIGH* I just can't win.

On a slightly less ominous note, Astronomy is DONE, and I only have three days of classes until finals week...and then only a week till I'm home... I CAN survive... maybe.... possibly... I hope...
