9th week is almost over. 6 weeks of classes left to get through. In the meantime, I have to write 4 20+ page papers and make a detailed outline of my SMP. Oh yeah, and apply to 3 more graduate school programs.

Tomorrow I will get inducted into Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honors Society.

Life continues to move on. Perhaps another blog entry will follow soon.

"No dawn, no day. I'm always in this twilight."

Another week has passed and a new one is soon to begin: eighth week by my calendar. 8 out of 15. Halfway through a semester that has been trying at best. My midterms have been completed and I have about a week before I need to seriously focus my attention on the four major papers that I must complete before Turkey Day (Thanksgiving for those of you who celebrate it).

I submitted my narrowed down topic to my SMP adviser and so now have a definite question to research and answer. AS for what it is...that is for another day.

More later. I am too wiped out by work and need to catalogue some plague treatises before 7.

Historiography and Archaeology midterms? Done.
King's, LSE, Cambridge apps? Done.
Foreign Service Test Taken? Done.

I currently look like I have been in a car wreck (literally) after an altercation that took place on my way into DC to take the Foreign Service exam. I learned that walking into the testing center covered in blood (my own FYI) is perhaps not the best fashion style to rock.

I am currently at home, but am heading back down to St. Mary's tomorrow morning to work. Two midterms to take this week...

Life is unexpectedly stressful down here on the river. Luckily, there seems to be a break in the storm clouds that have descended over my life these past two weeks or so.

So...what's new: My King's application is completely in. I should have a decision within 6-8 weeks. Also, I am now the new President of Phi Alpha Theta, the National History Honor Society, St. Mary's Chapter. I plan to use my new power to establish a dictatorial regime. Just kidding. (Or am I?) I was also accepted to Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honor Society. I will be rocking some serious bling (in terms of cords) at graduation.
