In fact, my grades are going pretty badly by my standards this semester, so luckily I have picked the year where my transcript is already finalized for law school to slack off. My senior thesis seems to suck up a lot of research time without having that much to show for it, and this is sort of irritating. Going to Stanford for research this summer was fun, though, and I am thinking very seriously about pursuing a career on the west coast.
ALSO, ALSO I finished Son of Neptune. It was glorious. No spoilers, but I can say that this one hugely benefited from Percy's return as a narrator. He just shines whenever he gets page time, and you know, I don't want to sound like an angry fan girl, but the other characters don't have the kind of charisma he does to hold up a story. Just to compare, it took me six months to get through The Lost Hero. It took me less than ten hours to get through Son of Neptune.
But I suppose it's early yet to figure out whether it would be a good idea to do NaNo, but I figured I should think about it and toss around some ideas. Good lord, someone give me some organization in my life, please. Someone tell me they are also doing NaNo. I certainly need a buddy if this is going to happen.
