Semester's End

1 semester down, 1 to go. I finished my finals yesterday, and new classes start on Tuesday. I'm actually sad that I'm done with my Russian Lit class, and I hope that Psychological Lit can stack up to it. We read Crime and Punishment among other things, so it's got to be good. We finished up Russian lit with the poem Requiem by Anna Ahkmatova. It's one of the most powerful and haunting pieces I've ever read. It's so subtle in describing the Soviet regime, and yet she cuts the reader to the core. Opera is in two weeks, and then college auditions begin two weeks after that, with two in one weekend.

We've had snow nearly every day since the we came back after break. It's pretty outside, but really cold as well. The students from the South have gotten used to the cold and the snow, but we'll all be sick of it come March, or April, or whenever it stops. It's reported to have snowed on graduation, oh the horror!

I have a digital camera now! Lydia's moving up in the techno world. Will an iPod be next? (gasps of shock and awe). Probably not. I'll post pictures as soon as I can figure it out to do it.

Book things

This is something I discovered from David. Get the nearest book and go to page 123, sentence 5. My nearest book was the French book that Seth gave me. On page 123, which happens to be the part of the book containing a section from Les Miserables, the sentence is this:

"Elle repondit."

It's quite interesting. Try it out!
