Today was super stressful; worked from 9-1:30P, came home and ran around writing up my Landscape Architecture term paper outline and proposal, went to class, came home and watched the Forgotten then worked on my Landscape paper for American Art.
For my landscape paper, I ended up viewing in person (for extra credit, yes) Frederic Edwin Church’s A Country Home at the SAM and writing three pages on its aesthetic, formal and ideological contents. It was ALMOST fun, if not for Prof. Casteras’ “23 Rules” page which lays out the 23 things that will guarantee failure for her course (including things as silly as italicizing the titles of pieces as well as avoiding dangling participles… still not sure what that means, grammatically…) Finished at midnight and then studied for my 17th C Rome midterm. Do I know how to have fun, or what?
71 hours =)
