Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

For about three hours I studied -- well, studied in between conversation -- with Robin for my Russian Imperial History class. The Napoleonic Wars confuse me because there were so many of them and countries kept switching sides and forming Grand Coalitions. I know the knowledge will solidify in my mind eventually, but probably not before tomorrow at 2 p.m.

Tomorrow at 3 p.m. (West Coast time) passes the deadline for applying to Slate's Book Club. I think I'll write something during my lunch break and send it on in, either on Name of the Rose or on Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. If I'm feeling adventurous, maybe one on each!
