That embarrassment of exammy fun was completed this morning, then I rather mindlessly existed in Atmospheric Science while people gave their presentations (two sets of people ended up treating the same material in slightly different ways, the lattermost of each admitting the first had done better), after which I took the bus to the library to pick up Sandberg's Lean In
and a surprise book which caught my eye, Russia Against Napoleon
. I am sipping my Guizhou tea remorsefully.

I got up evilly early and last-minute reviewed little bits and pieces of Russian and Chinese history. None of which ended up proving useful... let me explain what happened. I stuck my bag in the reed room, then wandered towards Lawrence with two pencils, a blue book, and my student ID (to get back into the reed room afterwards). I ended up coming an half-hour early, so I spoke politely with the disabilities secretary and went to the restroom twice more, besides when I had stopped in Main Hall (in between Swope and Lawrence) and spoke with Dr Speh briefly. I uselessly drive up the plumbing everywhere, but I was stressed.
Oops! That isn't in bullet form! I am so bad at this. orz
*awake early, stress-stress-stress with random pile of textbooks
*mixture of Earl Grey créme and Earl Grey with lavender imbibe - too many leaves, not enough water, which may have augmented the stress
*made it to Uni an hour before I was to take exam
*left bag in reed room so it wouldn't have to be crammed in the belongings drawer in the test room which is too small
*went into Main which is in between where I'd been dropped off [Swope] and the test site [Lawrence] to use the restroom
*spoke with Dr Speh since that's where she lives, about Russian stress most likely
*walked to Lawrence around 9:30
*sat in test waiting room, where the secretary envied my warm faux-mink cape
*used restroom at 9:40 (stress)
*finally went into the test room at 9:55, where the proctor made me put the cape in the drawer which couldn't fit my bag
*EXAM! My professor messed the envelope up a bit but not as severely as I'd remembered - the proctor offered me a fresh blue book for my answers but I refused it since I already have millions "to practise" (and never really use them)
*actually used all the time afforded - usually I do not - unhappy that it was only a LITTLE like the review sheet - enough so I can't get MAD since it WAS all stuff of discussion - my notes didn't really talk about anything useful besides Magna Carta's sign date of 1215
*took the sealed envelope with the test back to Ruby Jones (REALLY
it's virtually right next door
to Lawrence, especially in comparison to Swope all the way across campus, so I have no idea why my professor told me not to go back and get a fresh envelope when it got messed up yesterday - the distance between his lair and the test site is about a third of what I travel from the music building to where he professes in Ruby Jones)
*was advised by a lady in an office across the way from my professor's to just slide the envelope under the door
*worried for my professor's well-being since the office lady said she had no idea where he was and she lives right across the way so something must be up! Such was my mindset, so sent him a concerned email
*got 6 bags of tokens as bidden by father
*had lunch of something weird from the Lunch Box foodstand - chicken Thai basil fried rice? Spicier than normal
*was a shadow of my normal self by the start of Meteorology
*noted the presenters were Jose, Erin, Dan, Drew, Miranda, Miles, and John, discussing atmospheric pollutants (which had everything to do with what I said about AQI and Chinese air), the sea breeze, monsoon being Arabic for "seasonal change of wind", the causes of lightning, the causes of fog (repeat of something from another day), more lightning stuff, and downbursts
*was assured by professor that he's fine, the office lady knows nothing
*took the bus the other way to retrieve library books - the one I had thought was in I took too long to retrieve so it went away, but the one I thought was still in the works had made it in so now I have Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In
*properly arranged Rite Aid intersection with Father to come home
*began typing this
Tomorrow I signed up to come to a conference at my University about Marxism in education - it is most likely at West Chester University of Pennsylvania since it has always been a teacher's school. I think it will be just like what Turchin was talking about! :D I turned that book back in to the library a while ago - The Inertia of Fear and the Scientific Method! I loved it and I don't think I can very clearly explain why...
