Blogging always seems like a better idea when there are other things to do.
I actually only have one bit of homework left to do for tomorrow, but there are two essays due next Tuesday, two midterms next Thursday and a final on Friday. Unfortunately, perhaps, I find myself unfazed by these facts. Everything always gets done, and I haven’t failed anything yet (or even come close, apart from that one D on a French paper Freshman year).
In fact, a nap sounds delightful, but I shall not indulge. My housemates are going to be watching a movie in an hour, and I shall be social (and likely procrastinatory, as it is highly improbable that said homework will be finished by then). I am planning on enjoying a toasty mug of cinnamon hot chocolate as well. And grapes.
One of the four non-school-related books I am currently reading is City of the Mind by Penelope Lively. Vic often suggests her to be one of the greatest contemporary writers, and I am inclined to agree. I rather enjoy how she weaves story and plot around an idea she wants to explore. Whilst in Lyon I read Moon Tiger and was entranced by her language and the insights she offered through the experiences of her characters. Halfway through CotM, I would recommend her to anyone who is willing to put up a little more effort to delve into a novel.
