OH! The other thing I meant to mention about the CD Assignment was that I used BARE!!! Twice! Legitimately! And Academically! WOOT!

... in which David is the worst university student EVER!

Why, you ask? Because for my last essay, which I handed in two days late (incurring a 4% penalty), I referenced Wikipedia. Not once, not twice, but thrice! (Also, for one of them, the reference was bogus; I did not get my information there, but could not remember which page I had seen it on.) So while the late fee costs me practically nothing, given that my essay on the post-Beatles works of John Lennon is full of references to a dodgily verified Participatory Media source, four songs, a YouTube clip of an interview and only one real, actual, proper source... well, I think you get the picture. The other essay I had due on Monday was not actually an essay; it was liner notes for a compilation CD of songs related to a political issue. Mine? Prop 8 and Gay Marriage. 46 minutes of music (though I would have liked to have had a lot more on there), 1500 words discussing how the music relates to gay marriage (both lyrics AND the actual music). Was one of the best assignments I've ever had to do.

In other news, I'M FINISHED! Sure, I still have two subjects to complete next year, but they're basically just performing in SUMS and writing two essays (total - one each semester)so I'M FINISHED! Graduation ceremony is ONE YEAR AWAY! (+/- small fragments of time)

Thirdylymost, my braces come off in two weeks from yesterday. You do not know how many kitten-like balls bundles of joy this fills me with. Four years of orthodental torture, prepare to be smited... smoted... smitten?

High fives? :D

where and when should I be looking for results on Prop 8? While I don't really need to know, per se, it would be helpful for my Music and Politics final essay.

Am yet to even think of a topic for 60s. Eep; only four days left!

Oh, and Margaret Cho is pretty damn awesome. Find and osmote her, people!
