Surviving Midterms
Topic: WtTS Stuff

Reading: nothing
Enjoying: nada
Listening: --

Finding yourself at the end of the tunnel staring into the bright light that is Friday is a blissful feeling, especially after knocking down the bulk of your midterms for the quarter. Not really knowing what the inside of your eyelids look like for any given stretch of time is a mildly disturbing feeling, but it ranks closely with the feeling you get when you try in vain to remember a single thing you wrote in the two hour essay midterm that you submitted earlier that morning. I'm looking forward to sleep, the weekend, and taking a more balanced approach to life.

On a completely different note, I experienced my first rain fall in California today. I think I saw a total of 26 rain drops, and if it hadn't been cloudy out, I'm not sure I would have believed it was actually raining. Rumor has it that SoCal winters are actually quite wet.

Despite the fact that my midterm week is over, I actually still have two more midterms to be completed before October gets out, so I still have some serious work to do. And three large papers. And finals. But for now, for a few short moments, things are looking good.

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely.
