Finals ended for me on Wednesday. I started this quarter really strong, but i just couldn't keep caring for those last few weeks. I'm hoping/somehwat expecting a B+ average, but we'll see what happens.
I'm not going to school this summer, but only working. Since I went to school last summer (albeit in Egypt), that means I went two years without a break. Most people wouldn't call working 30 hours a week a vacation, but my job is easy enough that I'll let it go. I get 3 days off a week and spend most of my shift reading books or bullshitting with my coworkers. Not a bad set up.
Today I finally booked plane tickets for ian and I to go to EDC/visit my parents at the end of june. Hopefully that will be pleasant.
I've noticed that I've been mixing up my [+mass] and [+count] noun quantifiers a lot lately. That is, putting "much" and "many" with the wrong nouns. I have no idea why.
Yesterday I bought a new, bigger bookcase because I was out of space again. Ian put it together for me, which I appreciate. I would have fucked it up I'm pretty sure. Then we moved the living room around a bit and I am pleased with the results. I always like rearranging the furniture.
So it looks to be a fairly relaxing summer. Going to read a lot of books. and study arabic a lot becuase I need to try that placement test again in september. If I don't pass I'm fucked, but there's no way I won't pass. How do I know? I'm too pissed off too fail.
On an unrelated note, I watched Iraq in Fragments yesterday. For as much hype as it got, I was pretty nonplussed. There's no commentary, just three vignettes of Iraqis doing their daily stuff; a boy in Baghdad, Shi'a extremist leader, Kurdis trying to vote. It was moving as a tale of personal stories, but not as a big exposee on current feelings of the man on the street in Iraq. The only thing fragmented in this movie is the point of view (sorry, I had to say it). Obviously with such a big issue it's going to take more than one documentary to detail it, but this doesn't really cut it.
Anyway, back to video games and obsessively cataloguing my books on LibraryThing.com
