I’m gonna say it.

Parks and Rec is the new 30 Rock. It’s just so funny, and the other one… just not as funny anymore.

We kept saying these at dinner last night and I wanted to cry from all the genius.

Now I can finally concentrate my time on more important things like Coach Taylor, and Season 5.

I still say that Season 1 rules my life, but whatever, I’ll keep watching as long and Eric and Tammy are killin’ it.

A friend of mine that I know from Paris is working on this project.  It looks so great and this video makes me love stuff and love Paris so much.

Watch this.

He’s trying to get it funded through kickstarter, so if you wanna just donate a dollar, I’m sure he wouldn’t be mad.  A DOLLAR!! DO IT!!!

Procrastinating? Again? Well, yeah.

I’m just really tired right now because I woke up at 5:30, but guess what, you can get a lot done when you wake up and it’s still dark out. I showered (not NBD), bought Nutella, bound a 50-page project, and ate a cookie for breakfast all before 8 AM.  Boom.

Also, even though I am procrastinating the rough draft of my 12-page paper, at least I made an appointment for the dentist.  (It’s been numerous years.  Oops.)

Oh, and I gave up Diet Coke. 90 days without you, here I come.

About that time in the semester.

Filed under: Uncategorized — irenejk @ 1:50 pm

I have 3 days of classes left before Finals start, (PS – i have a final on a Saturday… how does BYU get away with this???) which means it’s about that time of the semester where I ignore real responsibility and then spend all day every during finals grading French compositions from January. Oops.

Last week, I was gonna go to a Jazz game and then decided not to because I thought I should do homework. I went home, and proceeded to… make a lasagna. I have to say, it was delicious – trick is making your own sauce… however, it was also is very time consuming and obviously didn’t work on homework at all.  (I did use vegetables in my fridge that needed to be cooked, so I don’t count it as a total waste.)

I did, however, finish a proposal for a grant this weekend and submitted it this morning. Check.

Other things on my list:

1. 12-page paper on the city theory portrayed in Banksy’s Exit Through the Gift Shop. (2 down… 10 to go)

2. Translation project due… tomorrow. (Haven’t started.)

3.34 French books to be read and analyzed, able to compare and talk about themes, characters, historical context, etc. (This isn’t til May so it doesn’t really count, just dramatic effect.)

4. Write a final, grade final, conduct oral exams (there really needs to be another way to say this…) for 22 students.

5. Do grades for 28 other students. (KILL ME NOW.) Plus their final at 7am in Provo. Ew.

This is actually turning out to be a really good to-do list.

But guess what I’m doing right now?? Blogging, and tonight I’m going to Arcade Fire.  And guess what else? I’M NOT EVEN MAD. (They better blow my socks off though.) Somehow I care just enough about school to enjoy it, but not enough for it to stress me out.  Cool.
