Tuesday Tales

Spring break is already nearing its end and I feel as though I’ve hardly done anything! This week I’ve attempted to study studied a lot for my comps. I’ve made so many study guides (Women in …., Race in …., Publishing information for…) that I’m not sure I will have time to study them all! Unfortunately even after having put all of this work into studying I don’t think that I am at all prepared for this test.

When not studying I’ve spent my time searching for apartments at my potential graduate schools. I haven’t the foggiest how to go about an apartment search so it’s mostly me searching google and hoping for the best. I head to the Syracuse admitted students visit day at the end of this month and hope to see some apartments in person while I’m there. Fingers crossed that blundering about leads to some good results!

Unfortunately, apart from the studying and apartment hunting I haven’t really gotten a whole lot else accomplished. I had high hopes of reading a great deal for fun over my break but, as usual, I have more books in my bag than I have time to read.

Here are a few instagram pictures of what I’ve been doing this week:

Pedicures with mom to start off spring break!

Rainy day reading at Barnes & Noble.

A movie trip to see The Artist.

Cirque du Symphony at SkyPAC.

Apple Crisp from Rafferty’s.

Week in Pictures: February 6

1. It has been beautiful out this week! One day, Sam and I kidnapped Rebecca

so we could all enjoy the sunshine.

2. While in town we found protestors…in Exeter. Gotta love England!

3.  There’s a really weird mural in Exeter that features medieval knights, Victorian women and

a phoenix burning–connection?

4. My television list. I’ll do a post on that soon since it’s getting out of control!

5. The mural again. Witches and a man that’s part of a building this time..the

meaning is still clear as mud!

6. Last night we tried to order Chinese food, but after calling them four times to no avail we gave up.

Guess they didn’t want our business!

7. After the Chinese food fiasco we ordered pizza, made curly fries, and got icecream.

8. This is what was left after our food binge. Feel free to call us gluttons!

9. Because they don’t split tickets in the UK, every gathering is marked by an exchange of money.

We’re constantly “settling up”!

 

What did you do this week?

Week in Pictures

  1. I got to use my new purse from Italy as a “go-to-class” bag! The orange color is so much fun and goes with a surprising number of outfits. Get your own, in brown, here.
  2. One of my fellow Ken-Exers did my nails this week. You can’t really tell from the photos but it’s a french manicure with red and purple sparkles. I felt very Kate Spade with that color combo.
  3. I worked on my creative writing project…a lot. For Kenyon Seminar we are writing a creative project about anything we want due in May. The catch is that our notebooks, where we record all of our background info for the writing, are due next Thursday. My project is set in Victorian England (real surprise there!) and is set in an insane asylum.  I’ve been spending a lot of time with “Ripperature” to get a feel for madness in the Victorian era. Here’s an interesting online source I found about opium usage in the 1800s.
  4. Who knew doing laundry could be so complicated? I washed my clothes today only to find out that the dryers were all broken. Let me tell you, two loads of wet laundry hanging around a room make it feel like a sauna, or maybe just June in Kentucky. Eventually the dryers started working and I carted everything back to dry–just another typical study abroad experience!

 

Signing off for now,
