Today did not have the best of starts. It was just more of my freaking out about not doing well in my classes and feeling as if I had not prepared enough for my Law midterm.
I skipped out on German just for today in order to squeeze in a bit more studying, but I still went to my New Writing class. It turned out to be particularly interesting because we talked about editorials, columns, and reviews/criticism, which are all topics I find much more interesting than the same day-to-day reporting. So that was nice.
Then came time for Law. I did a bit more studying before the class started, which I feel freaked me out unnecessarily. The rest of my study group seemed like they were also very nervous for the exam. I did not really know whether to be comforted or even more worried. The exam went out and the multiple choice questions went well, but I had to BS a couple of the short answer questions. I felt I did a better than decent job on the case studies, so that was reassuring.
To reward myself for not having a nervous breakdown mid-exam, I went to Starbucks and had yogurt and iced mint tea. I also started working on my second article and I think it is going fairly well thus far. I need to interview a couple more sources, but that should not be too difficult (I hope).
While I was working on my article, B. called me and said that he wanted to make lentil soup together. So he met up with me at Starbucks and we headed back to my place. We ended up making some delicious soyrizo lentil soup (which I now have a ton of in the fridge) and had a nice talk about everything from school-related stress and our families to holiday plans and Arabic.
It is always nice to see him during the week. Having him over for dinner definitely made my day much better.
