State of affairs

I guess I'm kinda just gonna ramble for a while today, since I'm still figuring out the whole blog scene.

It's finals week at Michigan State, and I'm procrastinating big time. I have an entire final essay to write and another two finals to study for. I'm not even clear on what the essay is supposed to be, It's supposedly asking me to "reread the papers and projects that you have created this semester" and reflect upon my growth as a writer... Damn this sounds exciting. It also has to be in the form of a letter addressed to my professor and future students. All that, plus making it 5-7 pages... I'm blanking on how I'm supposed to put my reflections into 1500 words. Our earlier essays have all been about what my professor calls, "literacies." He defines a literacy as knowledge in a certain subject that allows one to see the world in a different perspective. This literacy can be something common like a language. But can also be something like having the literacy of running, or mathematics, or politics. Our 1st paper was about one of our own personal literacies. 2nd paper was about a literacy that's vital to our culture, (a cultural literacy). 3rd paper was about a disciplinary literacy (as in writing about our knowledge in our respective majors). Anyway, that's kinda the rundown on what we've been doing in that class.

In other news, my dorm room looks like utter shit right now. My roommate and I just took our loft down manually and we have our mattresses lying on the floor to sleep on. Plus we have at least 200 cans in bags that we need to recycle so we can stock up on energy drinks for this week.

Yeah, so that's about it for now. Thoughts on my first legit post would be cool, thanks.

P.S.
Lions draft ftw. We're gonna have the best D line in the league. Not to mention an electrifying offense with Stafford (hopefully staying healthy), our core of receivers and tight ends, as well as our two headed monster RBs in Best and Leshoure.

  1. The end of the year is stressful as hell. It does get better after you move out of dorms though.

    Also, Lions D-Line is NASTY.

  3. Ugh, I hate high school finals, can't imagine college ones, and procrastination is something that no one outgrows. Good luck on them though.
