I was going to go to Philly today, but had to cancel because I absolutely had to have a meeting today with the Drewids researching for Thom Jackson, and today was the only day they could meet. I hope everyone else had fun with all that Lauper goodness, though. |
I haven’t heard from my internship in DC, which is just adding to all my end- of- semester stress… I really want to make concrete plans for the summer, and I’m worried that if I wait too long I won’t be able to find housing in DC. I know that if I were to intern for my Rep the work would be menial, but I’m dying to find out!!!!
Unfortunately, I’m kind of dreading my fall class schedule, especially “Biology of the Mind” and “Love, Sex, and Spirituality in Early Modern Spain”. I can’t stress strongly enough how little I want to take those two classes, but I don’t have much of a choice, really. I have to take a science (and I think I found the most dumbed down science class possible) and while I still needed some grammar classes for the Spanish major, my adviser actually decided to make a recommendation to the dep’t that I skip my remaining grammar classes and take lit instead (though I didn’t have any say in that decision). And that really, really sucks. I speak and write in Spanish much better than I read it, and Early Modern Spanish Literature sounds especially difficult, uninteresting, and quite useless.
Yeah, but quitcha bitchin, already… right??? I am really excited about campaigning for Thom Jackson and Corzine in the fall. Speaking of Corzine, I went to a fundraiser for him at Liberty Science Center the other night with Jeremy and some of his friends from Ramapo. Corzine is seriously the warmest and most down- to- earth person I’ve ever met (or, more likely, he is just a fabulous campaigner…and shit, I think it’s crystal clear by now how easily starstruck I get). I wonder about his future ambitions (like, for example, for 2008… as a very minor point, I think it'd be a bonus for all of us Dems who can only manage to be lukewarm on Hillary, that Corzine has some deep fucking pockets… but then again, I don’t think Warner’s doing too poorly in the finance department, either :) ).
I’ll be honest, though, and say that I’m even more excited about getting some valuable experience with Jackson and Corzine to help defeat Rick “man-on-dog” Santorum in 2006. That douchebag needs to go... It just doesn’t get much worse than Santorum.
Yeah, but overall, my sophomore year has really been one of the best years I can ever remember having, and though these next couple weeks are going to bite, I’m quite excited about the summer (reading, lots of sunshine, the College Dems Nat’l Convention in DC, a couple road trips…yes, it will be great, I’m sure).
I hope everyone hangs in there with finals!!!
