     So, for the longest time now I've been having a lot of trouble coming up with posts for this blog. Sometimes it's because I have waaaaaaaaay too much to say, and sometimes because I have nothing to say at all. So, since I mostly made this for myself anyways I've my discipline is somewhat lacking, like right now, I'm supposed to be working on another paper, but I'm doing this instead #irony? So, I guess it would be neat to give myself writing deadline goals that don't have grades attached to them if I fail (plus also they'll be fun!). So! Now to the challenge. Every month I'll give myself a theme (usually a literary one), and will attempt to post at least twice a week with that theme. Since October ends on Wednesday I guess I'll start with November. I can post on anything really as long as its in that theme and is of a reasonable length. My theme for the month of November will be......

Edmund Spencer's Faerie Queene (one of my most favoriteist books ever) Look for it in the month of November!

I don't have time for this

   But that's never stopped me before! I keep meaning to post something on here, but I really have nothing interesting in my life at the moment. Midterms will be over tomorrow, but I don't get to breath yet because I have a five page paper due Thursday and a 10 page research paper due Friday. After this week things will get a little better I guess, this weekend I'm going to a symphony and next Tuesday I'm going to an Opera... for free... that's cool I guess. Also, I did read Silver Chair this weekend, I haven't read that one in a long time. Still not my favorite... The rest of my papers won't be due until the end of November, and then there's finals... but after that CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!! I'll tell you what I am ready for a little holiday cheer. Not that I'll get to relax much over the break either though.... Children, being a chronic procrastinator doesn't make your life better. Even if you can do it, doesn't mean you should. Take it from someone who knows. #notworthit.

     Ethics is not as fun of a class as I expected it to be. Because of that I have amended my expectations for next semester and have no illusions about the interestingness of Epistomology (although I still have Hope for Metaphysics). I love my major, but I mostly love electives. In fact, I've arranged my senior year so that I will take nothing but electives. Electives are the classes you actually care about. Like, next fall I will be in a Lord of the Rings class. MY SCHOOL IS OFFERING A LORD OF THE RINGS CLASS!!!! So, on that note I will now mindlessly transition into a geekfest about the new Hobbit trilogy. THEY'RE BRINGING IN THE APPENDICES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH IS THE VOICE OF SMAUG AND THE NECROMANCER AND MARTIN FREEMAN IS BILBO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHH! IAN IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CAN"T WAIT FOR THE 14THHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. So yeah, that Hobbit thing... it'll be pretty cool, I guess... If you're into that sort of thing.

     Thank you for indulging in my procrastination. I think it was a successful attempt to waste time until lunch so that I could eat, and then have to pack my school things which will take the remainder of my time before I have to leave for class so I don't have to work on my paper which I should be doing right now, but am not. Fish.
