I sort of feel like I should apologize for writing of almost nothing but Marcus. I imagine that it could get kind of boring after awhile for those of you that don’t know him. Which is all of you. There are other things going on in my life! I swear! It’s just not that much. And not that exciting. And I don’t think about them as much. But I’ll try to have my blog be more multi-faceted than it is now.
Like… Joseph and I made a bat trap yesterday! Kelly was at a birth so I picked him up from school (Michael was home sick) and when he got in the car he told me that he wanted to get himself a pet bird. We thought that catching a bird in the daytime would be hard though, so he decided to make a trap for bats and hang it in a tree in the backyard with fruit in it to attract them. We spent almost 4 hours working on it and it’s always nice when he is occupied because he’s a chronic complainer of being bored and hungry. The trap didn’t end up working but that’s beside the point. Joseph is such a creative and determined mind. It was frustrating at times, I’ll admit, but it was fun too.
I got an A minus on my Leibniz philosophy test like I had on my Descartes test. It was another pleasant surprise. Now we are studying Aristotle, Kant, Sartre, and possibly some Nietzsche. I think I am better at school than I thought I would be. Definitely better than I was last time I tried it. I’m looking forward to continuing and for my classes this summer and whatever I will take in the fall. School isn’t THAT bad I guess. I wish I had study buddies. That would be fun. I wish I had taken some classes in Minneapolis because I would have had plenty of other friends to study with and bike to school with and SpyHouse to sit at and work. But whatever, it didn’t happen that way. Maybe/Hopefully/Undoubtedly things will be different this fall.
