Just wanted to pop in and inform all of you that I will be entering the black void of school life known, collectively, as Dead Week, and once I get my ducks all in a row (it wouldn't hurt to know where, exactly, my finals will be taking place) I have plans for reviewing a really just wide variety of the things that have been assigned to me by the three literature courses I had to take this term.

 

To be frank, it is, quite literally, a stack of books, and to be fair, I didn't have to read the entirety of the materials I had to read.  To be even fairer, I didn't damn well read ALL of it (I mean, come on, Emma and Dickens made me sob in frustration), even what I was assigned to read.

 

I thought that I may as well take the lemons of what I was forced to read, and turn them into the bitter lemon juice that is a chance to review things that I may not have read on my own.

 

Also, screw my job - I believe that I am scheduled to work eight hours tonight, while I am supposed to be preparing for finals.  Well, maybe I shouldn't be working on this like this, either - but dammit, I am still a person, I AM NOT A MEAT PUPPET.
