it's not the end of the world now, darling

so the world was supposed to end today. or something. to be honest, i completely forgot about that whole thing until i was flooded with facebook statuses saying that it didn't end. but anyway, in light of the fact that there still is a world, i thought that maybe i should stop being lazy and come write an actual blog post.

i had my last final tuesday, and my qual exams start january seventh. tomorrow is my first qual study group and i decided to stop thinking from tuesday until then because my brain is tired of trying to be smart.

a kid in one of my classes that skipped more often than not missed his final presentation. which was worth twenty percent of his grade. i used to be a big class skipper, but there are just some things that you do not miss. final presentations are one of those things. i don't understand why you would even take a class if you're going to miss everything.

the killers came to mason again on tuesday. last time they were here i had a final presentation and couldn't see them. this time they came (thanks to sandy and her not causing us any damage but still getting our finals pushed back a week) i had a final. i am starting to think that school will always be in the way of me seeing them.

i really wish i had something more exciting to tell you, but end of semester stuff has pretty much taken over my life. after refusing to clean my apartment for weeks because i was "too busy with school" it is finally clean. qual exam prep will start shortly and then hopefully those will be out of the way. i am also working on a few different writing projects (some that may have potential to be shared with the world and some that are only for me), so that hopefulness of writerly things to come that i had earlier is still hanging around.
