Today I became an official British Citizen when my very pretty red passport arrived in the mail. Yay! Going to go bum around Europe now. :P I WISH! Damn my useless degree that won’t be finished for another year and a half. Still, it’s good to have gotten the paperwork done and have it for when it’s needed. Thanks, Dad, for being a filthy immigrant (I joke.) <3
I can’t watch horror films because I have terrible nightmares that lead to days to weeks of insomnia and now I’m getting ads for horror movies in my dashboard. Thanks, Tumblr.
I finished that damn essay last night. That means all my written work is done for the semester and all that’s left is a visual test for Portraiture and exam for Classical Mythology, oh yes!
Here in Australia-land though it’s now just mid-year. Winter is the best! Love being snuggled up in bed and scowling at the children outside playing on the street who should be in school but aren’t!
Next semester I have two English courses: Gothic and Passions. Can’t waaaait! And Northern Renaissance Art and Visual Culture, and Uniting the Kingdoms (British history involving well, you can guess by the title.)
All my favourite things, I can’t wait! Gonna get my reading oonnnn!
One of the worst feelings in the world? Getting to your last point in an essay you’re writing and realising you still have 800+ words to go.
University is over in a few weeks. Can’t wait for the middle holidays. Just want to veg and do nothing for 3 weeks. :P Though we might go camping with friends sometime.
I have two essays, an art history visual test and a classics exam left. :O
Not feeling very motivated to work though. On Friday we had to put down my cat, Babbet. I had him for 14 years since I was 11 years old. Feeling so down about it. Miss my best furry friend. :(
Finally sorted out my major essays for this semester.
My Classical Mythology only has 2 minor essay, one I’ve already done, but my second is on Artemis, Athene and Aphrodite and which one is more vengeful, BWAHAHAH! Love it!
My Medieval Europe one is discussing the rise of the Cult of the Virgin Mary from the 12th Century. So that’ll be cool! I looove Medieval history and I wanted to do a Masters in it but this course is kinda bringing me down about it. We had to choose our own essay topic and I had no idea. Maybe I’m not cut out to be a true Medievalist?
(I’m only doing 3 classes soo…) My last is Portraiture and Power and I’m doing Boucher portraits of Madame de Pompadour. WOOO! Because I saw the amazing one in Munich Alte Pinakothek in December. Easier to write about art you’ve seen in real life. ;) There’s another one in Melbourne but I don’t know if I can really fly over for that before the essay is due. ;_;
Anywho, that’s what I’m working on for now. Oh, and a visual analysis on Las Meninas by Velasquez after my group presentation on it. ARGH! Maybe I should do Art History Masters?
