Another song I've really enjoyed throughout this whole week is Ella Fitzgerald's "These Foolish Things." Another beautiful, subtle song with such romantic and vulnerable lyrics. I had it on repeat one night while I was writing into the wee hours.... and now, the play count on my iTunes has reached a quite embarrassing number for me to admit. That's how much I've enjoyed it. Maybe you will too!
What's new? Not much I suppose. Speaking of writing, I just wrote a couple of short stories for my Fiction Writing class, which I'm enjoying quite a bit despite the heavy load of work and reading. If you're interested, let me know & I'll shoot you a copy! With taking that class, I really came to truly appreciate fiction and the craft of it. It's really been insightful and eye-opening... and the best part of it is the discussion after the assigned readings. I could say I've learned a lot more in that class than I have in any of my other classes combined this quarter. Sadly, as my fondness grows exponentially, comes another ending of a quarter. Oh well... I'm definitely looking to take another creative writing course soon like poetry.
I've barely had any time to breathe this quarter, but I haven't felt so fruitful and excited in quite some time, especially during school time. 20 units, 5 classes. Wasn't all that easy, but it was all well worth it.
Spring seems to be just around the corner! Can't believe winter quarter's almost over already. Time to study up for the finals...
