Jeremiah was a bullfrog!

I’ve spent this week of dance class going crazy because I can’t dance and have to just sit and watch everyone else. They’re learning stag leaps, which I love, and these great turns in contraction, and spot turns, which I’m bad at and could really use some practice with. Argh! But today Marni set them up to do turns across the room in groups of three, one group coming from one side of the room, and the other group coming from the other side, so that you wound up with six dancers weaving through one another, doing turns in opposing directions. I watched my classmates doing this and I was filled with joy.

Now I’m home because I had to come back and make a phone call, and they put me on hold for a while so I was going to be late for my Chinese class anyway. So I decided not to go. ;b I’m just too comfortable here. But I’ll do something productive to make it worthwhile.

I’ve been talking to some friends lately about how this semester is shaping up. It’s my last semester and I hardly have any real classes, yet I’m busier, more tired, and simultaneously more stressed out and more relaxed than I’ve been in any other semester in the past four years. How does that work?!

  1. Hi there,

    I saw your LJ link in your Orkut profile.

    hi lisa! i don’t know the answer to that last question, but if you get an answer please share! i’m not taking a whole lot of real classes but i feel busier than when i was! maybe it’s because the “not real classes” usually involve independent work, and when it’s something you do independently it’s also usually something you enjoy doing more because it’s more real to you, and then you work harder at it or work more at it because it’s more important than doing a dumb problem set. (okay maybe the YOU really means ME) what do you think about that? πŸ™‚

      Sometimes that’s true. With my thesis class I definitely put in way more work than I needed to just to get by. But this semester, even though I’m only taking classes I enjoy, I’m not even putting as much work into them as I would like to. So I don’t think that’s where all my time is going. Erik thinks it might be because I’m working. There’s probably truth to that. And, since I feel like I have more money (I say “feel like” because I’m trying to SAVE my earnings, not spend them all!), I tend to go out more with friends and shop and eat out more, which sucks up time but which can also save time, at least when it comes to eating out. So I don’t know. 😐
