13.30: It seems that I am once again having difficulties being productive. So, a revival of the list is in order.
What I did so far:
Repeat 60 words of Latin vocabulary.
Enter 40 new words of vocabulary.
Look around for the handout on epicureism and not managing to find it.
Remembering that said handout is crap anyway and shrugging it off.
Reviewing lecture notes and remembering that we never really made it to epicureism because of the professor's love affair with Aristotle.

Will now finish reading sodden Introduction to Epikur, and then march on to another of the oevres I have borrowed, because I have to hand them in on the 30th. Shit.

I just realised something that really shouldn't be so much of an epiphany.
About 90% of the characters in movies and TV shows that I adore were either played or spoken by Thomas Fritsch.

I mean, seriously, check out his Scar in The Lion King:

Is this the hawt, or is it?

I danced with my best friend's boyfriend in an elevator because that's how I roll.

Well, well, well. And the first week of my second stage has passed. And I am dead tired. Though it's getting easier to get up at 6 am every morning. All it takes is some getting used to, it is.
The teachers are mostly nice, and now that I know the names of a few of them, I don't feel quite so lost.
It gets quite boring to just watch the lessons and take notes after a few days, but today, I finally got to help in a group that was preparing posters in French. It fest good to be doing something.
I hope that I will be able to maybe teach a lesson soon. Hopefully. It makes everything so much more interesting. And it helps that my schedule is slowly coming together as I'm finding regular groups to accompany.

Unfortunatly, a friend has been less lucky. At the school she's been sent to, the youngest students are 17, they're almost all males, and about 1 1/2 heads taller than her. She, the History and Latin student, spent her first hours of work experience watching some tarts wash each other's hair.
She's seriously considering doing her attempted teaching in that class. I can already see it:

Tarts: *brush hair* dominus
           *brush* domini
           *brush* domino
           *brush* dominum
           *brush* domino
Friend: Alright, girls, and now "libido"
Tarts: *brush* libido
           *brush* libidinis
           *brush* libidini
           *brush* libidinem
           *brush* libidine
Friend: And now say something smart.
Tarts: *implode*

Cela pourrait être une idée de continuer ce journal en francais, même si je n'ai pas tous les symbols sur mon clavier. Mais j'ai besoin, éperdument, d'améliorer mon francais, et surtout mon vocabulaire (lequel est dans un état horrible. Voyez que j'avais déjà eu besoin d'un dictionaire pour trouver une possibilité d'exprimer le désespoir en facon adverbiale).
Et de plus, c'est risible de faire des études de francais et de ne pas s'exprimer dans cette langue à chaque opportunité.

J'essayerai donc de faire mes entrées à la francaise, n'ayant pas de c cédille, vu que c'est une necessité absolue.

Well, we always kind of guessed it, didn't we?

16.00: Spell-checked and printed French paper. Didn't do much else yet. It's as of I'm coming down from a short productivity high after finishing Cato and the paper so soon after one another.
That shouldn't be happening.

Finished translating Herodot I 80. There was a lot in there about horses and camels and mules.

10.30: No wristslapping yesterday and the day before, spent almost all day at uni, translated Herodot I 78, did some reading in De Re Publica, learned my vocabulary. Will now learn today's vocabulary, then either translate more Herodot or get started on goddamn French paper.

11.50: Translated Herodot I 79. Totally butchered it. Am very ashamed.

15.15:  Wrote about half a page for my paper. Am now ready to start conclusion. Can you believe how badly I was procrastinating the whole thing? Although, the conclusion won't be very long. I think I can watch a little DVD first ...

19.10: Am halfway done with conclusion.

21.00: It. Is. Done. Including bibliography and everything. All that's left is some intensive spell-checking.

And a new to-do list:

Read De Re Publica
Read Metamorphoses
Read Les Misérables
Translate Herodot
Write Greek paper
Learn French grammar (to be more precise, direct to indirect speech)
Learn Latin grammar (focus on conjugation)
Learn Latin vocabulary
