hello there!

in an effort to redirect traffic, anyone who is interested in anything that i am up to currently should go here:

i am no longer updating this or any of my other wordpress pages, sorry!

New blog, again

I know I said that I was back, but I probably won’t be updating this blog too often and will instead be focusing my efforts on my fashion blog,  THE SWATORIALIST, which is in conjunction with my column of the same name for Swarthmore College’s newspaper, The Phoenix.

I hope you enjoy it, and I’ll try my best to keep it up to date :)

I’m back, for now…

Oh it sure is nice to be home.

Classes ended a couple weeks ago and since then I’ve been caught up in the craziness that is finals period.  By Wednesday this past week I felt like I’d done enough work for all my classes, and realized that I still had three out of four to go.  By Thursday I was halfway there but wanted to go home, desperately.  By Friday, I almost cried when the tri-co shuttle to take me home to Haverford was 20 minutes late.  It took a few episodes of Top Chef before I felt at home, and completing my Shakespeare take-home exam to feel some relief and return to normalcy.

The contrast between finals craziness and returning home is astounding–I don’t really know what to do with all of my time.  I had lots of plans for break, yes, but so far I’ve been unable to do anything but play Wii, go to the grocery store, watch Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.  Oh, but I am starting to read War and Peace, as it’s on the reading list for a class I’m taking next semester and the professor said we should get ahead.  Although I’m enjoying it so far, I guess the work really does never end…

Taking a break

So, as you may have noticed, my posts on this blog have been trickling along, mostly due to the fact that I’m really really busy and a little overwhelmed by how many things I have to do and keep track of here, so I’m going to take a little break.  I’m not ending this blog, but I am going to wait and start it again when I feel like I have everything together.

In the meantime, I am going to starting my blog for my school’s newspaper, The Phoenix soon.  The blog is based off of the column that I write, called The Swatorialist.  I will post a link for that later when it’s up soon.

Also, I’m still blogging for quadblogs, but I feel terrible because I haven’t posted in quite a while–maybe if I downsize this I will feel more inclined to post to that.

So adieu for now!  But I’ll be back, I promise.

I’m sorry…

I’ve been so MIA lately.  The first week of school turned out to be a thousand times more hectic as I now realize that I have class and work ALL the time.  I dropped Latin, so now my Tuesdays/Thursdays are really full since I added Greece and the Barbarians as my fourth course. So now my schedule looks like this:

Monday/Wednesday/Friday: Calc class from 10:30-11:20, placement for my Ed class from 12-3 on Monday and SAC meetings Monday night, work/research in the Ed lab from 1:30-4ish on Wednesday/Friday afternoons.

Tuesday/Thursday: power yoga from 9-10:30, Greece and the Barbarians from 11:20-12:35, Shakespeare from 2:40-3:55, plus my Ed. Psych seminar from 7-9:45 at Thursday night.

So, all work all the time.  Plus writing for the Phoenix, SAC stuff on the weekends, Olde Club duties, working for the November election hopefully, and just generally trying not to go crazy by making lots of music.  So please excuse any lapses in posts from time to time…I don’t mean to, really.

p.s. Broken Social Scene last night was AMAZING, more on that later (and I know I say that a lot and usually don’t follow through, but for this one I have to)

New blog!

Last night I started blogging for a collective group of blogs called quadblogs.  It’s meant to help prospective students with the admissions process by offering a view into the lives of students at various colleges.  Sorry this is so brief, but I have class fairly soon and need to get ready!

Here’s the link: http://www.quadblogs.com/

So I’m typing this from my bright and sunny room at Swat right now.  I like the location of our room, but with the window open I hear EVERYTHING outside, which means that I got up at about 8ish even though I went to bed really really late at night because there are already people (freshmen) outside getting ready to move in.  Also the walls are terribly thin, so I heard 2 or 3 neglected alarm clocks go on for minutes before they were finally turned off.  Basically my room is a mess/one big pile of stuff right now.  More to come later (pictures), but for now, just trying to get settled in and organize…
