girlnamedxena: (swing my thing)

So, last night in class the people who were suppose to be presenting thought they weren't presenting until February. Scary English Prof was not amused. Then later we were talking about a short story we were suppose to have read for class and she asked a girl a question, and the girl admitted she hadn't read the story. Scary English Prof then asked how many people didn't read the story and about half of the class put their hands up.

Scary English prof really was not amused.

Oh, and we're making a class chapbook, and I'm helping with cover design. That should be interesting.

Swing tonight. It's just the lame n00b drop-in lesson, but after there will be dancing at the Den, and that's always fun. Plus I think someone said something about the Swing club buying nachos again. That would be pretty sweet.

My reading for this week is coming along ok. I probably won't read any of the online ressources for my History Class of DOOOOOM!!!!1! but everything else will probably get read. I also have to rewrite my short story that I'm handing in on Monday and get started on my history presentation, but so far this is all manageable.

For my next story for my English class I think I'll try magic realism. The thing about magic realism is it's really tricky to keep it that and not sci-fi/fantasy. But I think I'll be ok.

Yesterday I went to this free drop-in meditation thing. It was lead by a Quaker, and from what I can tell being a quaker is about as pagan as you can get while still being monotheist. It's interesting. I could see myself going to their meetings from time to time. Afterwards I had lunch with the Quaker lady, the chaplain guy who organized it, and this keener girl who seems to be a big part in it. It was interesting, sort of. The quaker and chaplain talked about politics a lot. And the chaplain guy figured out my major on the second guess. I was pretty impressed-- usually when people try and guess they go through all the fine arts majors, and then philosophy and English before they give up and I tell them I'm doing history. We also talked about our goals for the future, and mine had to do with school and my girlfriend. It was interesting being able to come out to a Christian priest/reverend (I'm not sure which he was, or even the difference between the two) and have him think it's cool. He has one of those rainbow-triangle "positive space" stickers on his office door.

Anyway, the chaplain also organizes a drumming circle on Wendsdays and I'm still trying to decide if I want to go. The thing is it starts at three thirty and I don't get out of class until 4:15. I'm guessing the circle only goes for an hour, so by the time I get there they'd probably  be just finishing up. I should find out how long it actually goes for.

This entry is really long, but I haven't been posting much lately so instead of having five short posts in one day you get one long post in five days. Anyway, my lunch is almost ready. So I'm gonna eat it and maybe watch an episode of Sugar Rush before I leave for school.
