A quick What's Up Wednesday
What I'm Reading
I finished THE IMPOSSIBLE KNIFE OF MEMORY by Laurie Halse Anderson (hoping to post a review soon!) and am still working through THE CORRECTIONS by Jonathan Franzen for my Contemporary Novels class.
What I'm Writing
I finished a rough draft of my South Africa travel essay! This was a pretty hard one to write because my motivation just wasn't there. It's about visiting an Islamic high school, and we all wore headscarves and got to watch morning prayers and met a bunch of cool people. I'm going to look over it today before sending it out for workshop critiques. I have a ton of small exercises to write for Travel Writing too that I just need to sit down and knock out.
What Inspires Me Right Now
Not much. Searching for motivation anywhere I can find it. I'm just not into school right now. All I want to do is watch TV and do puzzles.
What Else I've Been Up To
Again, not much. School, work, homework, puzzles. For work, I had to help interview and select the resident assistants and orientation leaders for next semester. We had them all come to the gym at once and did team building exercises with them. It was nice for me because I didn't have to do the activities, just facilitate. Team building stuff stresses me out!
Okay, I'm off to do homework before my motivation entirely wears off. Happy Wednesday everyone!
