(unlikely dreams)

dinsdag 6 september 2005

Well, school is already in full swing - I have a presentation on a Margaret Atwood excerpt in, oh, 45 minutes... and then a Spanish article ('La vida del ama de casa') to read during lunch... and then Spanish class... and then a mad dash to the Humanities department head to get her to sign my thesis project form... and then another mad dash to my tutor's office to catch him before he leaves and get him to (finally) make the official Research course change to my schedule... and then a third mad dash to the train station to catch the train to Waddinxveen (yes, the TRAIN, imagine that!).

Just another day in paradise.

My reward will be a patatje speciaal for dinner when I get back to Utrecht Centraal after swimming tonight. (That's French fries with mayo, curry sauce, chopped onions, and who knows what else. Very, very yummy.)

And the cold is better - although not gone - which cheers me up immensely.
