Such a fun time. What have I been up to?
I just finished writing a five page research paper. Five pages is normally jack shit to me, buy unfortunately I had to write this one in German. This was my last big project for the semester, though. After today when I do my presentation on it I’m more or less home free. Just finals left.
All of my Christmas shopping is done as well, other than my mom, who is being stubborn about choosing something. I think I finally figured out what I want to get her, though. Some of them are going to be great surprises, some of them were picked from lists. I can post nothing about what I’ve chosen right now though, obviously.
Last night I finished my two-week reading project as well. I’m now up through Storm of Swords in the Song of Ice and Fire. I love this series. It moves like a glacier (or so it seems, although three years have actually taken place), but the characters are very deep. Best of all, people die with reckless abandon! Why is this so good? Because it gives actual tension and fear to scenes involving danger. And scenes of utter complacency, too. You never know when you’re going to die at random. Just like real life.
