Spring Semester 2013 Half-Time Report

It’s just about halfway through Week 7 of the first ever spring semester at Ohio State University. How am I doing? Very well. I’m busy, but I’ve got a constant sense of optimisim that’s keeping me going, and this morning I woke up feeling well-rested! As you probably know, college students usually cut sleep out of their lives until they feel they absolutely need it, so I thought it was something else when I woke up this morning and didn’t feel like I needed another hour to be at my best.

As for grades, I’m doing well, though I’m going to study harder for the next two exams in Psychology and History. Speaking of which, I’ve recieved grades from a couple of classes. On my American Literature midterm, I recieved an A, only a few points short of a full one-hundred. On my Abnormal Psychology test, I recieved an 84%, which I hope to improve with the next midterm (a week from Friday, if I remember correctly). In World War II history, I recieved a ninety on the map quiz and an 84 on the midterm. For my creative writing class, I haven’t recieved anything but other’s short stories and feedback, but judging on the atmosphere of the class, it’s not hard to imagine I’m doing well. Especially with the teacher bringing in a different wind-up toy every class to use as some sort of metaphor for writing.

Speaking of creative writing, I’m turning in “Old Sid” tomorrow for my creative writing class. They’ll take a week to look over it and critique it, and then they’ll turn it in on Wednesday with their thoughts. I hope they like it and have some good suggrestions for it; I’d like to send it to a local literary magazine if possible.

As for social life, I hang out with my friends and go to OSU Hillel once a week for Sabbath services and kosher meat. I don’t have much time for clubs or organizations, but I make do when I can, like Buckeyethon a few weeks ago. I also work part-time, and I’m trying to do as much as I can as tax season is upon us, which means busy season is right  around the corner.

But I’m also trying to do a reading of some of my work at my dorm. In fact, I was emailing with the guy who’s the head of my dorm’s activity board, and he wanted to read some of my work. I hope he doesn’t get nightmares from it! In any case, if I can do a reading, I hope to film it and I hope to put it on YouTube. You’d be able to see just how creepy I can be!

Wish me luck with everything. I hope to have a cover for The Quiet Game out later in the next week or two, so keep your eyes posted for it (there’s a pun in that sentence, by the way. Did you notice?). I even took an evening photo for it. It’s going to be awesome!

  1. Looking forward to seeing your cover!
