Fortunately the professor actually cancelled class to let us study for mid-terms so I didn't have time to stew as I rushed home to try and get some studying in for my history mid-term. Unfortunately I didn't get a heck of a lot of studying done and wasn't as focused as I usually am when actually writing up the test. I don't think I did well at all, although certainly not badly enough to fail or anything. Oh well, if I do better on the final he won't even count the mid-term so...
The TA for my film class approved our proposal for a film project so that's definitely a good thing. She did say that she was sorry she wasn't going to get a chance to read the paper I proposed, which is also a good thing. Not that she's sorry, but rather that the fall back plan is one that has potential. How can I lose? I think some of my lack of focus in my other classes may have to do with how oriented I am towards film at the moment, for a variety of reasons, some rational, some highly irrational and ANNOYING.
Of course I am also slightly under the weather so that may play a role as well. Equally annoying but hey, it happens, especially to someone like me who is incapable of varying wardrobe to match weather.
One good thing that came out of yesterday was external confirmation that my sharpness is getting back to its previous levels. It's been a year or two since I've been academically intimidating, or had an instructor actually interested in my work. Maybe it's the ginseng in my vitamins but more likely it's the better diet.
Of course the diet hasn't been going to great but I might be retaining water due to illness. That has been known to happen.
2 classes today and then spring break, glorious break. Good stuff.
