Dramatic Lit was interesting, as usual, even though we were talking about Everyman, the most stunningly terrible play ever. Well, not really. It just wasn't my cup of tea.
Egyptian Lit was boring, as usual. I think I actually fell asleep a few times, which I continue to feel bad about. I really don't want to be disrespectful, and I really don't want to get caught, it's just sooo boring! Maybe I'll grab some coffee right before class next time and see if that helps. It's worth a shot at least.
I also got a paper assigned in both classes today. The Dramatic Lit paper won't be too hard, it's just six pages on a pretty simple topic, but the Egyptian one might give me a little trouble. I have all quarter to write it, which is already encouraging procrastination, but since it's supposed to be ten pages at the bare minimum, I won't be able to procrastinate for that long, just because I'll have to do some real research to even find that much stuff to talk about!
While I was in the library today, I came across this. Some of you have probably already read or at least heard of the article, but I thought it was interesting, so I'll post it. If you're interesting in seeing how you score on a similar quiz, go here. You can also compare your results to the people who were actually surveyed and see how well you did compared to a bunch of different categories. I did pretty well myself, I thought. Actually, I was pretty proud. Good for me.
Because my friend Jen is going back to the States tomorrow, we all went out to dinner to Abu al-Sid tonight. The koshary was just as good as last time, and luckily, we got to sit at a table this time, even though once again we didn't have reservations. I won't push my luck again, though, next time I'm definitely calling ahead!
We also went to the waffle place again for dessert. What can I say? Waffles are delicious.
When I got back to the dorms, I did my homework, then started to pack for my trip this weekend. Yes, another one. This time, we're visiting St. Catherine's monastery in Sinai, and also climbing Mt. Sinai to see the sun rise. Yes, this means another weekend of catch-up blogging. I know, it makes me sad too. I don't like it, but once again, I'm not willing to miss writing anything down. So, tonight's will be the last blog I post until Saturday night, when I'll do my best to post both tomorrow's and Saturday's. Or something. It will work out, just like it did last time.
In really sad and frustrating news, look at my favorite pair of jeans:
|that hole is right where you think it is|
So, I'll be off to Sinai tomorrow, and I'll be back blogging on Saturday night, just in time to do all my homework and then go to class the next day. Still, Mt. Sinai. Wow.
