A Little Perspective

Now or Never

I know I if I don't blog now I probably won't do it for 2 weeks because the end of this semester just might kill me between 2 papers, 2 essay finals, a comprehensive spanish final WITH and oral exam, and a stinkload of spanish homework I've successfully procrastinated for a month. Boo. Anywho, my sister Sara came up this weekend and we had a good time eating our body weight in fast food and watching movies. The best part of all this is that I am now destitute. Aside from when Sara was here, I've been forced to eat all the food in my cupboard that I did not want to eat all semester. My diet has consisted of ramen, boxed pasta, frozen chicken nuggest, power bars, and goldfish. Seriously, a month of that can make the thought of food nauseating. Yes I whine, but really I'm just glad to still be eating.

In other news, I finished Persuasion for my Jane Austen class last night, and I've officially decided it is her best novel and my personal favorite. Let me just give you a little taste though, of what's so great about it...

"If there is anything disagreeable going on, men are always sure to get out of it."


"She was deep in the happiness of such misery, or the misery of such hapiness, instantly."

"Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you."

Seriously, if you haven't read Persuasion, you really should. It's only about 200 pages, and if you have a sentimental bone in your body, you will appreciate it.

I feel bad making you spend money on food. I spent way too much money there too. We should just not eat when were together lol!
