I passed my qual! This despite being sick with the flu last weekend (i.e. when I was qualling). Now if only I could get my annotations finished....

Today I burned my hand making soup. I spent the entire night with my hand in a little bowl of water instead of finishing Jackie's paper and packing. And tomorrow I will move a shitload of stuff into our house. Really bad timing, but I suppose injury is never exactly convenient...

Being sick at Reed is miserable... I have lots of work and all I want to do is sleep.

First day at Starbucks. I heard all about how Starbucks Cares for The Community and The Environment. I also received my very own "Coffee Passport" wherein I am meant to detail my impression of every coffee Starbucks sells during my first 90 days of work. Thank God I'll be working there for less time than that. It also functions as a sort of cheat sheet to every coffee. For example, the "key term" for Breakfast Blend it's "clean." I don't know about you, but "clean" make me think of bathroom sanitizer, not a mild Latin American roast.

Anyway, sarcasm aside, at least I have a job. And the Taurus is finally working again, so I can actually get to that job. I suppose the summer is going as well as I can expect. Which is to say that I'd much, much rather be back at Reed.

Goddamn fucking Hum paper. I don't want to write it.

Also, why is my friends' list at its slowest when I need it for procrastination most? I hate to see lj fail me so tragically.

Fall:
Intro. to Anthropology (Anne Lorimer)
Intro. Fiction: Portraits of Ladies (Nathalia King)
Hum 220 (Ben Lazier)
19th Century French Lit. & Culture (Catherine Witt)

Spring:
Intro Bio (yuck)
US Women's History 1890-1990 (Jackie Dirks)
Hum 220 (Ben Lazier)
Fiction: Narrative and Description (Nathalia King)

I may or may not take Narrative and Description, but it looks as if that will be the only thing I'm interested in that fits in my schedule. Fucking bio. Ah, well, it should be a good class. Although I may end up in Poetry and Poetics instead, depending on what I hear about Moschavakis.

Also, I fucking win at scheduling because I do not have class on Friday either semester!

P.S. Look at the little busy fox below... isn't he adorable? I think he's my favorite little mood icon ever.

So it looks like I'll be living in a senior single in Woodbridge next year. For those of you not in the know (i.e. non-Reedies) this means a good-sized room in a shoddily-built dorm.

"Personal DNA" thingy (stolen from Lily).

All in all, it sounds about right. Although I don't think I'm as much of a "people person" as the survey seems to.

ETA: I just changed my icon in honor of spring. Isn't it pretty? It reminds me of the canyon.

Oh, also: I fell out of a tree yesterday! It was very dramatic (not really, actually - more funny), but now my neck hurts a lot.

I am now convinced that almost all of my problems would be solved if I could only sleep as much as I want to.

Blech. Procrastination is the fucking devil. I still have hundreds of pages to read and a Hum paper to rewrite before I go to sleep.

Oh, well. It's not like I'm tired anyway - not with the incredibly inconvenient sleep schedule I established this weekend (5 AM to 3 PM, both Saturday and Sunday).
