Easter April Books

I didn’t really know what to expect from In Cold Blood. One thing is for sure, I didn’t really expect it to be this good. I’m about halfway through and I started the book on Monday.

I really liked Lord of the Flies. There is more coming on this a bit later on. There is a story behind the copy of the book that I read. More on this in a later post.

Monday End Of Term Four More To Go

Worked all day.

Taught four classes.

Was able to study for three hours.

I studied Numerical Analysis. I’m starting to get a good feel about the subject matter.

I have to go buy some  see-through post-it notes for my studying. I hate people who write in books. Books are meant to be kept pristine, especially school books. That’s true for all of my books.

I’m totally out of it. I went to bed at 2:30AM and got up at 6AM.

I did some paperblogging, but not the arty kind. I just wrote out a few posts on paper. Will posts those later this week, once the exams are done. I got about three original posts done today. I wrote another one last week. I’ll have to type them up at some point. Saturday or Friday. After my finals.

Spring In Quebec

So.

Is it spring yet?

Yep.

Most definitely.

That doesn’t take away the snow that we still have on the ground. It’s been a record breaking winter, with about 500 cm of snow.

Today was the first day of nice and warm weather. Warm enough to walk around in a short sleeved shirt. Hormones are in the air at the university. Girls are coming out of their shells. I no longer need to wear any extra layers. That is amazing. I’ve been wearing thermal underwear until a few days ago. I finally put them aside.

End of term. Last week of school. Actually, there are still two more weeks left. Next week, I have got four exams in two days. The next week, I’ll have to finish my last homework that’s due on May 2nd. I’ll try finishing it this weekend, but things are not looking good for that.

It’s going to be raining all weekend. At least that will make me study. I was planning on running a bit in the neighborhood, but I’m not that well equipped. Actually, it should be too bad since I’ve got some shorts.

I cut my hair last night. It wasn’t the best idea, but given the tools that I had at the time, my hair’s looking good. I waited too long to cut it and ran into all sorts of problems. I think that there might be parts in the back that aren’t all that even, but I’ve always recently gone for a mini mohawk Beckham style. It doesn’t matter. Cutting your own hair, without a clipper, is kind of like a work in progress. It’s simple enough and I don’t do things like layering, but the end result is alright.

I finished a class today. I still have classes tomorrow. Next Wednesday, I usually have 6 hours worth of classes. In one class, people are presenting their projects. In the other two, the professors will be answering questions. Then on Thursday, I have two exams. I have two more on Friday. I’ve already started preparing. I think it will go well, but it’s going to be stressful.
