My iTunes: Overture from Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro
Sorry for missing yesterday -- I moved into my new room (or should I say, closet?) and couldn't get the internet set up until this afternoon.
My nickname for my room is The Closet. It's tiny, and we don't even have a closet, so my joke is that we got a closet instead of a room. It doesn't seem bad when you first walk in, but as you look around, you realize that between the two beds, two upright dressers, two desks, and armoire, there is NO wall space left. I had to stack my nightstand/shelving unit on top of the dresser. I went to Target to get the organizer cubes to make some more storage space, but they won't fit anywhere. So, I loaded up my car with what won't fit, and will have to return the cubes. The sad part is that I had already majorly down-sized what I brought.
I also found out that my roommate is studying abroad in the spring (surprise, surprise!). I hope she has a good semester -- I think much of this semester will be spent in tears getting over last semester's break-up. Luckily for me, one of the girls in the MASSIVE double upstairs (it has a bedroom the size of ours, PLUS an equal size room with the desks and such!) is also studying abroad, so I can move up to the other room next semester. I will have had 5 rooms and 5 roommates in my 4 undergraduate years.
The worse news -- I realized last night that the 50-page Latin paper I wrote in gone. Really gone. I could cry. I'm going to see the professor tomorrow. If anyone would say, "I'm sure you did the paper, I'm sure it was excellent, so I'll just give you a grade and not make you rewrite it," it would be this professor, but I don't know if she really will. Maybe I can negotiate taking that independent study as "Pass/Fail" and not have to rewrite the paper.
If it wasn't for losing my 50-page paper and possibly all my senior seminar research, I'd be excited about the start of the semester. As it is, I just feel slightly sick.
The happy thing about the past few days -- since connecting my phone to my computer apparently kills my computer, I finally gave in and bought a new ring tone. It's what I'm listening to on iTunes right now. It makes me happy.
