Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
I leave Friday which is much too soon if you ask me, but there's nothing I can do about it.
This'll be fun.....

United Airlines # 938
Chicago O'Hare International (ORD) to London Heathrow (LHR)
Departure (ORD): May 15, 9:05 PM CDT (evening)
I. Am. Awesome.
Got (most of) my grades back last night and they're all As again. Except for stats which is an incomplete because the teacher was sick when I took the final so he couldn't grade mine before he had to put grades in. I'm 90% certain I'll get a B of some nature in that class, though, which is better than I expected from a stupid math class I never wanted (or really needed except for general core requirements) to take. And even if it is a C, I don't care because I never cared about that class. Just as long as it's nothing lower.
But... I am extremely emotionally frail right now. Last week put me through so much that right now, I'll feel like I just want to break down one moment, and then feel like nothing at all or like sleeping the rest of the day or something without doing anything else the next.
I gave up crossing out the things on the list, mostly because it felt like a waste and I wanted to elaborate on them separately, so I'll do that here. Here's how last week went:
(that's this week)
1: Finish this scientific controversy paper for philosophy. Finished as of Thursday 4/30, three days after originally intended.
2: Study for Spanish final. Take Spanish placement exam for study abroad by tomorrow morning
3: Take Spanish final tomorrow at 1
4: Revise my history paper, which really needs it. Refocus it around Parliament because that's way cooler and more specific. Due Thursday; ask for an extension, lol
5: Somewhere find time to study for my theology final Friday
6: Somewhere find time to study for my Statistics final Saturday
7: Don't die
8: Write a review? lolololol what riiiiight
9: Pray I can get on AIM sometime before I have to leave because I'd like to unwind, thank you.
10: Don't die
My history professor for teaching a 2½ hour class with a migraine! Despite being somewhat loopy as a result of it (and possibly the painkillers she took for it), she still managed to teach quite competently, and only really struggled with remembering specific details about specific French and English dynasties, which she then remembered correctly anyway.
Kudos, and I'm really glad she didn't just cancel even though she probably had every right to because the 100 Years War is fun. Well... that and it's a 2½ hour class, which means a lot of material gets covered... and there's only one week after this of regular classes... and there's stuff with the paper that I was worrying about...
Poor woman. I feel quite bad for her, though. That couldn't have been comfortable.
Stress messes you up. Seriously. Like... really bad. My whole day was ruined today because of it... The backlash from the events of the past few days finally caught up with me, and today I was just utterly exhausted. I had no energy - all I wanted to do was sleep all day (and for the most part, I did). I had a headache all day (it's still there now actually), and it also produced some discomfort in my joints, particularly my knees. But that last thing could also have to do with the sheer amount of walking I did yesterday because I only had about 8 million things to do....
I just got accepted into the Mallorca program through my school. So now the only things I really need to worry about are my passport actually getting here... which should be in another week or three... and finances.
Now that I'm accepted, they[re eager to start billing... The remainder of the program fee's like $1100... and tuition'll be like $4000ish. I... technically have the money in my checking account, but... that'll drain me considerably if I have to use all my money for the program. Fortunately, I think $1000 of that will be paid by financial aid... and maybe I can get the rest (or at least a fraction of it) from familial donations or something. I realy can't afford to take out loans for the summer, though, since I already do that during the year...
