This has been a strange week. Per our recent agreement, the BF slept in the spare bedroom on two nights because he’d taken the “good” sleeping pills and didn’t want to reduce me to a hysterical, sleepless mess like he has in the past with his insane excessive snoring. So I feel like I am missing my snuggles! Fortunately, the BF is going to come home early tonight (which means before 8 p.m.) and cook me fish on the grill. Yum, I can’t wait!
I also didn’t see as much of him this week because I went with a dozen or so ladies from the alum club to see a sneak preview of a movie that opens today called Away We Go. I thought this movie was excellent – do yourselves a favor and go see it. Don’t be fooled by the description – it was written by Dave Eggers, whose memoir, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, comes pretty darn close to living up to its title. In fact, once the credits started rolling and I saw he’d written it, I felt pretty dumb for not recognizing his writing 5 minutes into the movie. Which is what I said after the movie and none of the other ladies knew who Dave Eggers was.
Watch the trailor:
In other extremely exciting news, my supervisor informed me that it was free for employees to apply to take classes, and that pushed me over the edge in my decision-making. I’ll be officially a “non-degree seeking” student by next week! I’ve e-mailed the professors for two communications courses, two political science courses, and one women’s studies course in an attempt to decide what I’ll be taking this fall.
Unfortunately, the most promising course (with the nicest professor) is full (Rhetoric and the Public Sphere) and another (Game Theory) was ruled out because they’re going to do the mathematical proofs and the professor said that differential equations and calculus would both be necessary. I don’t think so! We’ll see what happens, though I am interested in game theory long-term and may also register as non-degree-seeking at the undergrad level so I can take some advanced math classes. I’ll keep you posted!
