November 1, 2002

I got about one hour of sleep between finishing my paper and turning it in. That sucked. I skipped my Japan class for the second time this week and lunch for the who-knows-how-many-th time this week to sleep until work. I would have liked to have slept through work, too, but I figure with such an easy job I should earn as much money as possible. Especially since I have managed to get a few hours above and beyond my scheduled time this past month, meaning I have a nice chunk of extra change that I plan to spend as I want rather than being frugal.

So anyway, I was just taking off my Halloween makeup. I went to the PARC Halloween party as a ghost of sorts, wearing a white shirt, stockings and two slips (it was actually a rather attractive combo on its own) plus powdering my face so I had unnaturally pale skin and smearing large amounts of navy eye shadow on to give the impression of "hollow eyes." (Yes, I was asked if I'd been beat up.) After I showered this evening I noticed that not all of the eye shadow had come off, so I went at it with some cotton and water. I rubbed and rubbed but couldn't quite get rid of the blue cast. Oh yeah -- that's because I had tremendous dark circles under my eyes from lack of sleep. I'm so glad this week is almost over.

Okay, so this month won't be full of daily entries like last month. But considering I almost never uploaded the entries daily, what's the point of writing a little daily note?

I'm sorry to be so stingy with updates, but my desire to bare my soul (or even recount my life) in writing comes and goes. Weeks may go by and I won't feel the need to write out my feelings. I know it makes for bad browsing then, but I don't think I can force myself all that much, especially when sometimes the reason I can't write is that I'm in the middle of sorting through some complex emotional issues that aren't ready to leave my head.

But in recent news: I'm doing well in classes. I've gotten good grades on everything so far save one midterm on which I did not read the directions fully and thus missed out on many, many points. Ironically, it was the midterm I studied most for, which makes the fact that it wasn't an accurate assessment of what I knew in the end (albeit through my own fault) all the more stinging. Oh well. This quarter isn't much fun class-wise, and I'm overjoyed that I've been getting good marks for all this stuff I put any effort into only unwillingly. I look forward very much to next quarter, even though I'll have some more intense classes. I just hope they're more interesting.

Also, I'm again shifting my major plans. I'm not terribly worried about not really having my goals set in stone right now since it's still early plus the way I choose my classes generally leaves me with enough of a concentration to be able to pick something out and not have much catch-up to do. In addition, since at any rate I'll definitely graduate with a journalism major it's not really pressing for me to pick something else. But I'm leaning again toward a second major in Middle Eastern history (with a nominative association with Asian history since there's not enough Middle East classes to justify its own concentration). As it is, I have three of five classes within the concentration completed and have taken a good deal of social science electives that could arguably be related to a history major. Since I really like to learn about that particular area, it seems to make sense that I pick a major in which I can focus on it. I'm also toying with the idea of a writing minor. I figure it's too late and too complicated to go for the major, but the minor is intense enough to give me some good experience. Lately I've felt a resurgence in my interest in literature and my desire to create it, and I want to explore this path. In my heart, I'll always want to be a writer.
