Well, here it is....Monday night. I'm currently at famecity's house as we both frantically write our rough drafts that are due on Wednesday.

That's right. I said Wednesday.

The paper is supposed to be approximately twenty pages in length. Now ask me if I've started.

Started? Not a word. Not a single word.

So, needless to say, I'm a bit freaked out at the moment. My problem is that I have nooooo idea what I'm writing about. I have a general topic, of course....but I'm not sure what I'm going to say about it. AAAAAGGHHH!!! And what am I doing instead of writing? Updating my livejournal... Great.

In other news, my sister's visit this weekend was fabulous. Every time I see her, she seems more mature and more sure of herself. How she managed to come up with some of the things she believes in is beyond me. I don't think my parents have any idea how progressive and brilliant she is. Anyway, it was really good. We didn't do much except hang out and talk and watch tv, which was great. I bought the 3rd season of Will & Grace, and that was super fun to watch (although I'm not allowed to look at it again until ohhhh. . . December). We also saw Crumbs From the Table of Joy at school, and it was reeeeally good. It was by far the best production I've seen in Madison and made me glad that our department can do work of good quality.

I also have a date on Wednesday....hmmm. It's been a while since I've actually been on a date - you know, like out to dinner and stuff. We'll see how it goes. I met him on the interwebs, which usually spells disaster for me. I'm just praying he's not one of the crazies that I usually seem to end up going on random dates with.

OK - time to go back to work. I have now written more on my LJ than I have on the paper. Brilliant.

Hazzah! (as somone I know would say)

#1, 2, 3, 4, and 8 from my list are done! At 2:15 in the morning....but done. Now if I can just manage to stay awake tomorrow during my presentation, all will be well.

My sister is coming tomorrow, and I'm pretty excited about that. Sure do love that kid.
Monday, October 17th, 2005 - 01:33 pm - Help!
How is it all going to get done? Somehow, I have to make it to next Thursday, when I'm going to Milwaukee. By then, this is what needs to get done:

1) History Presentation
2) History Annotated Bibliography
3) History Presentation Response
4) History Paper Proposal
5) 700 Paper
6) Directing Project
7) Next week's history readings!
8) New Play Dramaturgical Work

Ummmm, yeah. Help! :(
Sunday, October 16th, 2005 - 01:01 am - Rory Stitt....YES PLEASE
HOLY SHIT!!! Went to see Rory Stitt tonight. FUCKING AMAZING. It was really small show, in a tiny coffee shop....but it was literally one of the best concerts I've ever been to. He was PHENOMENAL. I want to buy his CD for everyone I know. I also got to talk to him after the show and acted a bit like a 12 year old girl at an N'SYNC concert (both because of his talent and the fact that he's incredibly cute). I would say he's one of the most talented contemporary musicians and songwriters that I've ever heard. He also has a phenomenal voice that blew me away. Can you tell that I have SUCH a rockstar crush on him? :)

OK - done gushing. Time for bed. Church tomorrow and then off to Milwaukee to visit Melissa.

I must get work done tomorrow.....which means I MUST go to sleep now.

Later, I'll have to talk about my break-through with my paper. (God, I'm such a dork) But that, I think, was one of the high points of my day.

My last thought: I'm sick of seeing all these cute little gay boys walking around together hand in hand. Where's my boy?
Wednesday, October 12th, 2005 - 04:41 pm - grad school....aaaaahhh!
After my rant last night, famecity was able to help me set up my LJ in such a way that even a computer-illiterate idiot such as myself can do it. Yay! Anyway, what I was wanting to post last night before I got frustrated was that after much prodding and encouragement from ubiquity75 and famecity, I have finally started my own live journal. I'm not exactly sure if anyone will read this other than the two of them, but that's okay. I haven't journaled in a while, and there is something cathartic about just being able to spew out one's thoughts.

So, my thoughts for today? I'm overwhelmed by grad school. . . totally, completely overwhelmed. One of my professors said at the beginning of the year that October would be the month where we would all have a minor crisis, and I'm beginning to believe that's the case. There was a point last week when I realized that I had pulled all-nighters four nights in row. AND THIS IS OCTOBER! AAAGHHH! (On a side note - I'm going to try hard to post something other than me bitching, but I'm not making any promises :) I can't do this for five years. I can't be crazy for five years straight. Sooo, I need to figure out how to prioritize better and feel like I'm in control of my life. Here's what I think will help me accomplish that: 1) work out on a more regular basis, 2)get sleep at night, 3)eat better. I realize that these things have nothing to do with grad school, but I feel as if I were to accomplish these three things, my whole life would improve.

I would also like to say at the outset of the "el jay" here that I feel extremely blessed to have met ubiquity75 and famecity since moving to Madison, and I love them both dearly. I would write more, but I'm off to direct handbells. . .ummm, yeah.
Tuesday, October 11th, 2005 - 10:31 pm - And it Begins. . .
I LOSE.  I have been attempting to begin an LJ for about an hour now and have not been successful.  I hate computers.  They make me want to gouge out my eyes with a fork.  A rusty fork.  A rusty fork dipped in vinegar.  A rusty fork dipped in vinegar wi. . . okay - you get the idea.  grrrr.
