I normally post on Saturday’s, but yesterday I decided to give myself a day off. Mostly. I did some physiology reading to prepare for summer and autumn quarter, and then I played video games. Bruce and Douglas were also being extremely cute so I gave them lots of cuddles! I was feeling incredibly burnt out; I had been grouchy and exhausted all week. I’m glad I took some time to just relax and have fun yesterday.
Bruce also did really well with his training this week. I’m so proud of him! We still need to work on certain things, like not approaching strangers and their dogs without permission. I think he will be able to master that over the next few months though and will pass the Good Citizen test in no time. Bruce and Douglas played together this week a lot too, and we finally got it on video!
We learned about the house of Atreus in CLAS430 this week. We read the Oresteia by Aeschylus, Fabulae by Hygnus, and Pindar’s Olympian. Moral of the week: don’t commit hubris by feeding your son to the gods for dinner and always follow through with promises or your family will be cursed. Also, I totally understand Clytemnestra. I mean, her husband Agamemnon was gone for like ten years and he sacrificed their daughter for the wind. I’d be pissed off too. As Lucille Bluth said, good for her. We are going to read Virgil’s Aeneid in our final week which should be fun. We have a final exam, but it’s multiple choice and open book/note and I’ve done well on all the quizzes so I’m not super nervous about it.
I also finished my third paper for ENG281, I wrote about basic income programs like universal basic income and guaranteed basic income. My argument was that it could stimulate the economy, alleviate poverty, decrease the economic inequality gap, improve health outcomes, and allow people to start their own business. I’m not really a fan of Andrew Yang, I prefer Bernie Sanders, but the data looked promising in my research. Hopefully the professor likes it! We have an essay for our final exam, but I won’t know what the topic is until June 4th.
In ENG288 we had to write a press release, so I used the product from the report assingment as my subject of the press release. We have to do a portfolio in our last week, and I’m a bit nervous about it. We have to revise all of our assignments for the portfolio, and now I wish I had left room for more improvement. Hopefully it will be fine.
This will likely be my final blog post, as this blog was created for ENG288. I may continue documenting my studies on studyblr using a different account though, so if you liked my blog send me a message and I’ll let you know how to find me on tumblr. I hope you all have enjoyed reading about my life! Wish me luck on my finals!
