Patios make the semester longer and shorter at the same time...

Doesn't it seem like the spring semester is about half the time the fall semester is? With twice the work?

While I LOVE grad school, and I love history, and all of those other things, I am really ready to be done with this semester. Last semester was awful, and I certainly don't want that kind of disaster again, but...this one is boring. And made even more so by the few awesome things that broke it up.

1. Spring Break. Glorious break, the first half of which I spent eating birthday cake and lounging, the second half of which I thought was going to be my last days on earth, due to the flu. The flu that I didn't get over until after...

2. Prague. Yeah, I flew 15 hours with the flu. Couldn't hear for a day when I got there. Nothing like panicking in a country where you don't speak any of the language. Conference and trip were great though.

3. Winning a paper prize. Hooray! Validation for my life choices!

4. Having my last day of grad classes cancelled!

5. Being done with classes!

6. Starting my comps? Yay?

So, in an effort to add even more procrastination time to my day, I'm going to start writing down all the ridiculous things that happen to me and my random thoughts on the universe (or maybe just on Memphis, we'll see). Because who needs to write about Ottoman relations with modernity when you can write about the crazy woman you saw in Panera today who refused to put her headphones in and listened to Billy Joel. Loudly. These are the things that happen to me constantly - enjoy?
