Happy Spring Break!

It's too bad I have all the things to do on my week off. There's a speech and a discussion on the Tuesday after break, 1,250 words due on Wednesday, and an essay test on Thursday. At least, I suppose, I don't have to do all of that while going to class and getting daily work in Statistics and my computer class or something. If I have time this week maybe I'll do next week's programming assignment, so I don't have to worry about all of that in the midst of worrying about everything else. But I won't stress about that. And I'll stop complaining about the rest of it.

I checked out a fun book from the library that I'll read and call research for my speech: "In the Land of Invented Languages" by Arika Okrent. Talks about the history of created languages, from Esperanto to Klingon to Loglan, all sorts of obscure ones too. That mostly just leaves me requiring a visual aid and info on Quenya for that speech, assuming there's something I can use in this book for the others. Of course, I need four sources anyway, so my search hardly stops here.

I could use this research for my iSearch project that hasn't even been talked about in class. I mean, it'd be something to do, all I have to do for that assignment is research stuff, it needs to have one or two books, various articles from the databases, that could totally work. I just need to keep track of a Bibliography and not just a works cited and then kind of write a reflection/log of my research. I could give it a shot. It doesn't take that much effort and if it's not right, well, I have other speeches to research for, too. But if I took the time for this it would be done. Then it's just a matter of cleaning up and making sure everything fits ok. I could worry about other things for other classes instead of worrying about getting this research done. Sounds like a plan! We'll see how it goes.

I promise someday I'll write about something other than school, but evidently not during this break, seeing as I have so much school to do right now.
