(1) Assemble my creative writing portfolio. This entails rereading and editing (if necessary) my four major pieces, tacking on a bibliography, and - the fun part - adopting a persona and writing an introduction/critique of my own work.
(2) Study like a madwoman for my linguistics midterm, which is tomorrow morning at 8:45 and which, judging from the review we were given, is probably going to kick my ass. Example: one random graph/diagram is going to be included on the test - unlabeled - which can come from ANYWHERE in ALL the readings. We will be expected to identify it, explain it, and label it. Wacky, impractical things like that. I mean, an essay, okay, term identification, all right, but rote memorization of pictures? How does that have any bearing on my future proficiency in the field?
(3) Do some more work on my thesis. As geeky as I'm going to sound right now, I am actually having a blast working on Middle English. I never realized this before, but seriously, Middle English is like normal modern English with lots of random Dutch thrown into it. It seems like I see something noteworthy in practically every single line, be that the word order, vocab, or (based on the rhyme scheme) pronunciation. It rocks.
I have made slight amounts of progress on the choosing-a-language front in that I've decided I must take sign language. Taking a modern language or ten in grad school is not outside the realm of the possibility, but seriously, when will I ever get the chance to do sign language again? Therefore, Spanish, Latin, and sign language are yeses and German is a no. That cuts the five schedule possibilities down to three:
1.) Spanish, Latin, sign language, weight training, Greek.
2.) Spanish, Latin, sign language, weight training, French.
3.) Spanish, Latin, sign language, weight training, Writing Systems, gymnastics.
If I could find a different Spanish class - a conversational class that didn't conflict with ASL, for example - the possibilities might be different, but ISIS is closed at the moment due to the fact that it's only 5:30 AM across the pond, so I'll have to wait on that till later.
At the moment, though, I'm leaning towards #2.
