Totally sitting in an icky hotel in sea-tac waiting for a shuttle to come get me. I think there may be a camera in the bathroom. Creepy.

Get to see Greg today!

Workout plan [28 Aug 2006|08:32pm]
I just added singing at the top of my lungs while attempting to mimic the voice of the singers on my ipod while working out. Dude, doing this with an ab workout is hard and surprisingly fun. Although embarrassing if someone catches you doing it.

Today has been insane...I have no idea what's up with my body.

I'm going to be honest. I sort of feel sorry for Tom Cruise. Not only does he get let go from Paramount (do to the fact that his "recent behavior is considered unacceptable" to the corporation, etc., etc)., but it's national, maybe even international news. Embarrassing times.

Don't get me wrong, he still creeps me out.

Wow, Livejournal seems more convenient than ever. What an age we live in. Although, for Mac users, I think if you open it in internet explorer it looks a little diseased.

I am at home watching CNN and getting ready for my appointment this morning. I have to somehow make it to Puyallup without getting lost. I think I can do this, although Puyallup to me is one of those vortexes in which every corner looks the same. Hey--they have a pickling farm there! Too bad I hate pickled things.

I am starting to slowly get my act together in terms of school next year. Grad schools, etc. Thesis, etc. Jobs?, etc. Fellowships, etc. What a time to be alive!!

You know you miss Russia when you go to Safeway at 8:30 at night to buy instant coffee. Ah...

Back home until Aug. 30th. I've been researching grad schools, Fulbright, etc. My Greg is in Scotland driving by sheep and wearing a hat around Glasgow. Watching 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.' Things are aaaaaaaalright.

so, i have a presentation on "Russian feminism" monday and am doing like ten minutes of research on the internet in preparation. now that's applying my energies sufficiently! honestly--i'm the last person giving a presentation, it seems to become more and more informal with each one, and i'm tired of all this poop. i am pooped.

tonight i'm leaving with the russ fam to go to the dacha. i will be strolling in their magnificent garden, sleeping in a tiny attic with an 8-yr. old girl, going to the beach, and doing homework. only, i will not swim because it's too cold out there on that gulf of finland. too damn cold.

i also have one more week left to get all the photocopies of the books i may use for my thesis. kind of ridiculous considering i still have like 20 to go through.

what else...going to moscow in like a week or so. don't know what to see.

Today after classes i have two very important goals and they both involve libraries. by and large navigating the libraries here has been relatively easy, except for going into one and being handed like five million little papers which you must take to five million different libraries. just to photocopy and fuckin' book i have to pay money. THEN i have to pay for the copies, which are all done on weirdly-shaped european paper. and i hate weirdly-haped european paper.

i think i am chillin' with my host mother this evening. i love our evening chats about life's problems. she is wise beyond her years.

next week: G8 conference in Petersburg! we are important! i wonder if there will be protests...something tells me yes. finally protests not about bread (that was rude). Poka.

Also, dear russian men. enough with the mullets already. they are gross--did you not get the memo.

Well, here I am. At the end of the year, in Fauver apartments, getting ready to go to bed, but getting immersed in Iron Chef America, a goat cheese battle. It's cool because I've been to the challenger's restaurant, come to think of it--it was good. I don't like that he's cooking with lamb. That is not ok, esp. if it's goat cheese, people.

I am feeling a little bleh since everyone left. BUT. I am done with Russian House (thank God). And I do not have to stay there for senior week. I have much work to do tomorrow, however, and begin working with a music professor on a project and getting some hours in at the history department for one last week. Hopefully I can squeeze another $100 or so from Wesleyan before I leave.

Bed time. I guess that might be one word. Whatever.

I got my grant!

I am beginning to think that no one in my Intellectual History class understood Kristeva. Neither do I, but it's funny that I pretended to follow this stuff in class along with everyone else. An excerpt:

"In an interpretive undertaking for which there is no domain heterogenous to meaning, all material diversities, as multiple attributes, revert to a real (transcendental) object. Even apparently psychoanalytic interpretations (relationship to parents, etc.), from the moment they are posited by the structuring learning as particularities of the transcendental real object, are false multiplicities; deprived of what is heterogenous to meaning, these multiplicities can only produce a plural identity--but an identity all the same, since it is eidetic, transcendental."

And that, I think I might actually understand. Please find me and kill me (joke).

The short essay question I have chosen to answer: Using text as support, provide a description of Kristeva's concept of the "semiotic" and how this relates to her concept of the "symbolic". (hmm, he uses European punctuation. very interesting.)
