We've got final after final and assignment after assignment rearing their ugly heads daily, which is why I haven't had time to do very much at all since I left for Russia. Speaking of which, I'm working on a [very lengthy!] write-up about my trip - we saw and did and learned so much in those 7 or so days, and there's a lot to share! The only thing is that I will post this reflection on Dreamwidth and share the link on LJ rather than directly crossposting. Because of the nature of my study and the country I traveled to, I necessarily had much to comment on in terms of the society, and I'd rather not risk any mines that might be lurking hidden in my writing. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed the trip, and I will definitely be going back to Russia at some point in the future.
My political theory final is tomorrow. I'm not screaming into a pillow, what are you talking about? :P It shall certainly be easier than the midterm, of course. We are doing ideologies, essentially - conservatism, socialism/Marxism, liberalism, nationalism, war & peace - which is markedly easier than social contracts and governance theory. Still, I'm nervous! I have so much respect for my teacher and for the subject, and it's probably just overly high expectations of myself. I want to do really well.
Anyway, I hope to update soon with my reflection on Russia (and a link, for LJ), and with more about uni, fics, other writings, and other adventures!
This is crosspoted on my Dreamwidth! Please feel free to leave a comment here or there :-)
