Well, this is the beginning of the third week of the term, and school is definitely starting to get stressful. Stress always affects my body in a number of ways, and I am already seeing and feeling the effects of the stress. The next 24 hours are going to be stressful for me, because I have a paper to write, a book to finish reading (I'm only 1/3 of the way through), and 20 or so pages to read of Augustine (early philosopher).

Today is the dreaded Tuesday (also Thursdays), where I watch the clock as my professor drones on and on about Neolithic Egyptian Art. Not my cup of tea. I hope she sees the big word ENGLISH major next to my name when she grades my exams, so she'll know why I might have trouble recalling these terms, as I'm not an art historian, and have no intention or desire to know or retain what an art historian knows. Well, I'll retain what I have to for the exam, but prehistoric art is very ambiguous, because we don't know a lot of why they made this art, or what a lot of it means. It is really boring to me. I think I would have enjoyed studying any art from the past 400 years, but prehistoric is just plain boring to me. I can't even pretend to like it.

So, here we are. It is 2:40pm, and I need to finish eating lunch, do some quick reading, then head to work. Tonight and tomorrow will be very busy (and stressful) for me.
