I don't think I like this very much.

I'm a morning person. Not the kind that bounds out of bed all brightness and sunshine. Hell, no. The kind that grumbles but would rather get up at 5:00 in order to accomplish everything she needs to in order to have the late afternoon and evening as free as possible for very important things like Jon and Kate Plus 8 reruns on TLC. (Will Maddy throw a fit? Will Hannah scream loudly? The new episodes are like reruns.) Including school. I would much rather solid classes after eight and be home by two. Seriously.

Mondays and Wednesdays I'm not finished until 4:45, which means I won't get home until after 5:30 when you factor in the bus of doom. I do not enjoy this. I thought I'd be okay with it, but now I'm home and it's seven o'clock and my hair is wet and needs to be straightened (shut up, it's a delicate process), and I need ink but I don't want to go buy any because, dude, it's like nighttime out there, and there's still a load of towels in the dryer that I have to fold and How I Met Your Mother is on and I am not in an appropriate How I Met Your Mother-viewing mode, instead snapping at The Artist Formerly Known as the Boy.

(What else is new, you ask? This was an unprovoked snapping.)

Things went okay, though. Cuban history looks as good as a Cuban history class could to someone whose only interest in Cuban history is a fleeting glance at the Moscow-funded Cold War proxy battles. I have a feeling we're going to get a lot of discussion on how Castro is misunderstood, though. Cry me a river.

Methods is the most ridiculous class ever, because it's basically a tutorial on how to use JSTOR. I know how to use JSTOR. I have written major term papers using primary sources. I know what a primary source is. I fail to see how throwing my keys on the table and describing them as a primary source is going to help me at all in the future, even my history-centric future. Ugh.

And Minoan and Mycenaean art was the scene of, quite possibly, the best thing that's ever happened to me. The professor got my name right- on the first try! Seriously! I was shocked. After that, I stopped paying attention, but I think it looks easy.

Tomorrow is US/Israel relations, Ireland, and chemistry. So murder, famine, and then some history classes! HA! HA! See what I did there?

Yeah. I need to go eat something.
