School, The Great Escape, Top Gear, and Being Human  
Oh my god school's been keeping me busy.  Basically, last week it was midterms week--I had two midterms that week, and I had another one this past Thursday, and I've been trying to concentrate more on not procrastinating and studying for tests and so I basically ignored updating my LJ so I could focus on school.

But now midterms are all done so I can have fun and reply to comments \o/

I did drop the comparative literature class a couple weeks back (well, it was during week 2 so it wasn't a couple weeks back)--I didn't really like it, and I didn't need it at all, and I didn't like how the majority of the students in the class were either whispering to each other or playing with their cell phones or not paying attention.  Also, I kind of want this quarter lighter because I know next quarter I'll have this upper division writing class for European Studies and I'll be probably busy with that class.  (I think.)

Another thing that happened this month was the grad expo.  I had the chance to order my cap and gown and all the tassels that go on the cap (I ordered a social science and a humanities one--even though I'm pretty sure I'll only be walking in one of them, because as a double major in different schools I can't walk in both the school of social science and school of humanities.  From what I've read so far on this website about commencement and walking).

I also ordered my class ring :D it looks so pretty (I can only assume) and I can't wait for it to get here so I actually hold it in my hands and (probably) wear it.  I only say 'probably' because when it comes to jewelry I'm crap at wearing them.  I have a ton of earrings that I only wear during special occasions that I don't wear the rest of the time because I just hate how they feel on my ears.  The only jewelry I actively wear--sometimes--are necklaces, but they have to be ordinary looking type of necklaces.  If they look too fancy, then I don't wear them.  If they look somewhat interesting then I'll wear it.  But for the majority of the time, I really don't wear jewelry.  So maybe for the class ring I'll either wear it or maybe I'll hang it on a necklace.  IDK.

I'm really liking my philosophy class, which is odd, because I've hated all the philosophy classes I've taken in the past.  But the teacher makes it awesome, and I'm just actually interested in it.

The only thing I hate about the class is that it's just messing with my mind in a major way.  We're mainly focusing on Augstine and his philosophical theories and this past Thursday in class we talked about his concept of time and creation and OMG my mind 0_0 Augustine is messing it up with his crazy theories.  But it was a good class because it did give me some inspiration for my time travel fic :P (the one I was planning to write for NaNoWriMo and then I didn't)

Anyway, that's enough real life talk.  Now it's time for fannish talk :D

I've been obsessing over The Great Escape lately. Feel free to skip me obessing over The Great Escape )

Now it's time for me to talk about Top Gear and Being Human (both from the last couple weeks).
