I got plenty of sleep last night, and the night before, so it's not that I'm fatigued. Though I have been having very vivid, some-what disturbing dreams as of late. That's not really anything new...but when you wake up having fled the home of a psychotic aristocrat who keeps dead and dying prostitutes in his basement dungeon...it tends to throw you off for the rest of the day.
And the weather today was perfect. It is entirely overcast, not a clear patch of sky in view, and is constantly seconds away from raining, though I haven't seen a drop. It's a cool 71 degrees and I think if it stays like this into the weekend, it will be quite pleasant. (Chris - you should plan on it raining all weekend.)
But classes were terrible. I felt I was wasting my time and I learned a total of NOTHING new...I hate that. In anthropology, all we did was watch video, and chemistry was an in-depth analysis of phase changes (you know...melting/freezing, condensation/evaporation). Boring and obvious.
Not to mention, I have my 19th Century Art exam to study for, so that's not helping my foul mood. This time, we have 31 artists to learn...the highlights being Ingres, Gericault, Delacroix, the Pre-Raphaelites, Constable, and Turner. Thank god we finally got to Realism. Neoclassicism is nice and all, and I like the theory of Romanticism...but 19th Century art, for me, is all about the realism. The sooner we get to Impressionism, the better.
Additionally, I have a leg twitch. I'm used to eye twitches...I used to get them all the time. But this is a muscle spasm in my right leg, just above the knee. It is REALLY ANNOYING, and rather uncomfortable. Nothing I do will make it stop. I wish it were an eye twitch.
I'm sure there are other things that are adding to it...outside frustrations and most likely repressed aggression somewhere along the way, all I know is that I'm in a snappy mood, and it's not good.
