belle réussite

I have managed to pass the intensive readings course in French for Graduate Students with an A. That certainly helped my GPA out a bit. Part II started today and thankfully, I only have to meet 2 more times: on the 4th to talk about Part I of my translation and on the 16th to talk about Part II. This gives me much more time to focus on packing, moving, unpacking, and working on my generals readings list. I'm trying to do 2 books a day, one from each of my minor field lists, until I come up with my major field list.

Kyle has been gone for a few weeks, the weather has been miserable, and I've been so overwhelmed that it feels like I haven't gotten anything done, even though that's not the case. But for now, I have errands to run and a house to pack, so I should get back to it.
