Too much of life, can be a bad thing…

Dateline, February 15th, 2001… Three midterms are finished… Final grade on 1 out of the 3: B. Status of Chris, ecstatic. Life seemed to slam me from every which direction at the same time, mass amounts of everything was too much; midterms, the job, the kids, the wife, classes, and general ick that life can be at one point or another; but it has turned for a better, like I promised. Like I said, I received a ‘B’ on my Enviromental Philosophy midterms, for a 300 level class I’m happy, right now my Philosophy Dept. GPA sits right at 3.5, which means a Philosophy degree with Honors… whoo hoo. The other midterms, well, we will see how they come out, but I am not fretting over them. I am still amazed about my Environment Philosophy course, not the midterm, but the actual course… I am never bored in this class, and I swear, I have to have a dictionary to attend this class, Professor Lysker uses words I have never heard uttered by another human being (I think he makes them up, I mean come on: nexus… is that really a word? Nexus Nex”us, n. [L.] Connection; tie. Man is doubtless one by some subtle nexus . . . extending from the new-born infant to the superannuated dotard. –De Quincey.) Another thing that has me astounded is that amount of notes I take in that class, usually 10 – 12 full pages every day I have that class… totally unlike me.
Another stress factor that is now over is my applying for a summer job, I went through, did all the essays and today I went and had my interviews, which I think (or at least hope) went well. Hopefully by the end of next week I will be a summer RA, or a Conference Assistant. Well, more updates to come…
