After 14 days of reading snatches here and there, I've finally finished The Secret History, by Donna Tartt. I think I love it, but I'm going to wait until tomorrow to make my final decision on that. It's one of those books that takes you on a rollercoaster ride, and you need some time to come down from it.
Some snippets from my day:
Two of my classes are done for the semester, with the exception of their final exams next week. I'm pretty flippin' thrilled to see this hellish semester end. Unfortunately one student still can't make a complete sentence and doesn't know the difference between a paragraph and an essay. *throwing hands in air*
I got the contract for the grad assistantship today. It specifies that if one works an outside job it should be kept to 8 hours a week (who works 8 hours a week?) or the teaching of one course at another institution. My question is, what brainless work-Nazi decided these policies? What fucking business is if of theirs if I teach one course or three at another instituion? They're obviously not paying any bills or investing any money!
I came home around 1:00, and I've done nothing but clean up a little around here, shower, and read. Oh, and I took a break to watch American Idol and Sex & the City. Bo sang "I Don't Wanna Be" by the ever-sexilicous Gavin Degraw. I almost creamed myself. If I could have a threesome with anyone, it would have to be Amy Lee and Gavin Degraw. Now, if only I could talk him into doing something with that nasty hair.
