The Student is Mightier than the Sword.. or at least Sharper!

Here’s the reading for TOMORROW…

As I take a breather from my flood of reading that drowns me during my first week of my senior year at UC Berkeley, I thought, hey, what BETTER way to take a break, but to WRITE about the massive amount of reading I am subjected to on a daily basis. Gee, how refreshing. Writing… about reading.

I do get a massive kick out of stacking my books up in the center of my living room to see the physical girth that I will attempt to squish into my head – only, you know, hundreds and hundreds of pages. This week. Then I spread the books out in a horizontal line to see how far they stretch out- a nice visual to the way my head feels right now – absolutely stretched thin. …and it’s only week two. Go Cal!

To give you an idea of how much reading we’re talking about, here’s a couple pictures I uploaded from my camera phone:

Vertical hell o’ books and Horizontal hell o’ books

This is a little scary since I’m only taking four classes this semester, “only” being a laughable term because each class expects an unmanageable amount of work on its own, let alone the whole lot of them together.

And naturally, I can’t include pictures of the readings that are housed online. Oooh, don’t even get me started on that! Why would you do that to my eyes, Professor? Don’t you realize that I ALREADY WEAR READING GLASSES? Are you going to make me pay for my chiropractor, now, too? Ahhh! I do not want to lose my sight by reading a mass of online journals. I’d rather strain my eyes looking at porn, or, at the very least, online comics (xkcd, QC). Then I’d at least go blind while smiling..

….

Enjoy your eyes while they last.
