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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.
Spent too much time reading books instead of brutally eliminating them from "must have in new flat" selection. Now, checking my grades. And... they're all in! B in Imperial Russian History, B in Political Psych, pass (duh) in handball, and -- wait -- B+ in Russian?! I was sure I took that pass/no pass! Oh well. I think we get 3.25 or some such around here for B+s, and that'll help my GPA.
I'd really like to keep/get my cumulative GPA to 3.5 after next semester and graduation. I hear that'll help keep my options open for fellowships and grad school and such.
