it's alright, even when push comes to shove. [Oct. 23rd, 2002|02:32 pm]

i've decided to start using my other userpics more, because i see my sylvia plath and i sometimes mistakenly think it's me. although i might sometimes wish i really was sylvia plath [to some extent], it's simply not true.

so. i'm amazed and surprised and appalled and confused by the complete lack of work i have this semester. three classes, and only one has regular work -- weekly reaction papers on the weekly film, plus a midterm and final. i've got an A so far, hurray. my politics class requires a couple of reaction papers and a presentation, then a final paper. there's also a take-home final, months away. also reading that i don't do, and seemingly don't have to. history course requires readings for discussion, which i mostly do. also a big paper coming up. so right now i'm reading a little while for a couple of days a week, and writing one short paper a week, usually the morning of the day it's due.

it's ridiculous how much free time i have. i know i should be starting on those papers soon, but still. it's great for now. i have more time with james, and more time for writing, and more time to listen to music and make CDs and watch tv and read books and and and... i love this.

i don't have much else to say. oh, here's something. in my politics class we were talking about the first lady and her role in the administration, how they almost always take up and issue or a cause to champion. quote from my teacher: "laura bush's issue is literacy, and not just for her husband." haha. biggest laugh she's gotten all year.

i'm in a weird mood, and i'm not sure what to blame it on. but it's a good weird. greg and i are acting like we're in love again, and (gasp!) could we mean it? james makes me smile with nearly everything he does. his comprehension is growing. ask him 'where's daddy?' or 'where's mommy?' and he knows who to look at. i think he knows our fish, too. cute, no? he'll be talking before too long.

i want to write but i don't have much journal-appropriate stuff to say, so i suppose it's time to turn to my notebook. i've been doing really well about writing regularly, or at least every day.

haha. i just posted this but came back to say, isn't that 'full' face [mood] just about the funniest thing ever? i meant full of life and stuff. duh.

That Laura Bush joke is fantastic. And yes, the "full" icon is funny. Hee. Humor all around.

I'm glad you're feeling up these days, albeit a bit weird. Here's hoping it lasts.

Love you.

give james a big hug - it goes by so fast, doesn't it? i still look at madison and think wait a minute! when did she grow up?! i can't believe she's almost 2.
love you.

You do seem full of life (although not like the icon), big yay for that! I wish I could get my shit together and write regularly too, but I'm very good at wasting time. (Unfortunately.)
That Laura Bush joke is priceless (:
