The Final Days….

Dear Blogging World,

I think I may be losing my mind. I’ve spent the entire day (after class) doing homework.  It is now almost one in the morning, and I just came to a point where I am okay with stopping.  I think I may have a problem with being too prepared (ha, like there is such a thing!)…”Hi,  my name is Megan. I’m overly concerned with my finals.” Group, “Hi Megan.” haha, sorry had to add some humor in there (reminds me of this clip from Finding Nemo–you have to go to 2:35 in the video)! Anyway,  I’m exhausted, but my French class is officially done except for a meeting with my professor to turn in my final exam. Yay me!  Part of the French test was writing an essay about a very nice girl who came and spoke to our class today.  She was from Cameroon, and told us all kinds of interesting facts that I certainly did not know.  Anyone out there in the blogesphere from Cameroon?  In addition to completing all my French stuff (it’s 1am, I can’t think of a better word than stuff at the moment), I also worked on my final history paper…I am 1.5 pages in…only 7 more to go! This paper is on two more books I’ve read for the class I mentioned previously in a post.  The books this time were: Murder in Amsterdam by Ian Buruma and Cafe Europa by Slavenka Draculic.  Neither of these were books that I’d heard of, or would likely pick off a shelf to read, but both were actually quite fascinating to me! I didn’t know nearly enough about the Netherlands or Croatia (the settings of these books), but now I have a little more insight into the way the Dutch & Croats lives have changed….don’t quiz me though, it’s far too late (or early, depending on how you look at it)! I’d love to get opinions on these books if anyone has them—you could potentially help me raise my B+ to an A  … I’m just sayin’  :D

Okay, at this point I’m pretty sure my sentences are no longer making sense, and my fingers seem to have troubles tapping the correct keys, so I am off to bed.  Up again tomorrow at the crack of dawn to work on more finals stuff & studying… oh joy!

Goodnight all!

Summer Reading

Hello Blog World,

It’s been too long since I posted something, and because tonight is a joyous occasion I thought, why not blog about it!  What’s tonight you may ask? Well my answer will completely make my age and status in life quite obvious.  My amazing news is that I finished my 7 page history paper that has been staring at me saying, “MEGAN YOU HAVE TO GET AN A, THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE, WHY IS YOUR PAGE STILL BLANK?”  I know this not exciting for anyone else, but trust me it feels FANTASTIC!  The books that I used to write my paper were of course history books, but they were actually on my favorite history topic: World War 2.  I swear I’m not sadistic, I just cannot fathom the idea that, not all that long ago people like Hitler and Stalin were in control–it fascinates me.  If you are looking for a good history book (for whatever reason) I suggest checking out the ones I read: Everyday Stalinism by Sheila Fitzpatrick and Backing Hitler by Robert Gellately.  On the note of reading, this week I decided that I was in desperate need of some good reading material for the summer.  The picture above is what I plan on doing during my free time this summer: reading and listening to my iPod—the best combination in the world!  Don’t judge me on the books I picked (list below), I know they are primarily really girly, romantic fluffy stuff, but who needs dense reading during the summer especially when I do a TON of reading during the school year of stuff I hardly ever enjoy.  So bloggers, what is your favorite summertime activity? Leave comments below! :D
