Grades and Stuff

Results from my first three tests this semester are in. I got 90.3% on my German test and 90% in Math. I don't even want to tell you what my grade was on my first Geology test. Suffice it to say I didn't take it seriously enough, but now I'll know better for next time. I can also boost my grade by doing extra service hours. I'm planning on working on the Cumberland Trail during spring break, so that should help. Tests and Papers for all three of my Philosophy classes are rapidly approaching. (Studying German is leading to the random capitalization of nouns in English!) I'm actually looking forward to it. I'm taking Ethics, Contemporary Moral Issues and Ancient Western Philosophy all at the same time, and I'm noticing a lot of overlap in ideas, and even in some text readings. I think I'm giving myself a strong foundation for my study of Philosophy this semester, and even though I cringe when I imagine myself studying ethics, I'm actually really enjoying it.

Nik is finished at the truck wash, which is such a good thing. He starts his new job on Monday working for the cable company. At some point, we'll be getting free cable. Just what I need. Oh, and even better, we might be getting a free phone line. It would be nice to have a home phone line again, especially since my cell phone reception is always crummy in the apartment.

At the Phoenix, UT's Art & Literary magazine, I am a candidate for the position of art editor. It's between me and one other girl, and we've both been working for the Phoenix for the same amount of time and have the same amount of knowledge about art. I really don't know who the position will fall to. In truth, I am somewhat ambivalent about it. I'd much rather have a position like poetry editor than art editor, but I believe I have the capacity to be art editor, it'll just be a new area for me. Anyway, I'm in wait and see mode right now and whatever happens will happen. How's that for a tautology?
