The semester (the last semester!) is well underway. I've got a fairly decent schedule this semester, I'm only assisting in one class, Research Methods, and I've had this assignment before, so I'm overly prepared. In addition, I'm only taking one structured class, an environmental sociology course, and my other credits are made up in directed readings and independent studies that will help me prepare for the preliminary exams next fall.
So, I only actually go to school two days a week, Tuesday and Thursday, and I have two regularly scheduled meetings every other Wednesday. I now have huge pockets of time with four day weekends and Wednesday's off. What will I do with my time? Well, I will need to be doing a lot of reading, I think Gretchen and I just picked out about 16-20 books that I should try to tackle this semester! Oh sheeot...and it's not like these are novels, man, I could read a dozen novels in like a week, but 20 medical sociology books? It sends shivers down my back, and this is what I want to do with my life.
In other news, Andy I talked about what we should make this weekend. Kim will be back in town, so that will be fun. Andy wants to make arroz con pollo, which I've seen made a few times, but haven't exactly made myself. A few times last summer I made a chicken and rice dish I saw in Rae's African cookbook, it looked like arroz con pollo does, but it had a lot more spices (cinnamon, curry) than arroz con pollo does, so we'll see how it goes.
I want to make Italian wedding soup! It's definitely soup weather, right now it's like 23 degrees.
