Well at least my eye stopped twitching.

Week 4 is over, and things are definitely starting to pick up. My first assignment, a research prospectus for Comparative Politics, was due on Wednesday and while attempting to formulate a research question it finally sunk in that I have a ton of stuff I need to get done in a short amount of time. I freaked out for a second (or a couple hours), but quickly got things back under control and planned out the next few weeks and when I’m going to start which assignment. Time management is key, remember? On Thursday we had a debate in my International Organizations class on whether the Obama Administration has made significant advances toward a more multilateral foreign policy. My team pretty much dominated (although admittedly the other team may disagree with that. That’s okay- we know the real truth, right?). This weekend I’ll be working on my first paper for my International Terrorism class, which is short- only 5 pages (yay!). I’ll be writing an analysis of the Israeli terrorist group Irgun Zvai Leumi. It’ll be nice to have a short paper to ease me back into the paper-writing process.

Tomorrow night I’m going to a birthday party downtown that’s being held for me (my birthday was Monday, and despite having to work and go to class, it was fantastic!) and two of my friends whose birthdays are around the same time. As of right now, close to 30 of us Korbel folks are going to be invading a bar in LoDo. It’ll be a nice break from reading and writing. I can’t wait!

Oh, and as for the title of this post… my right eye started twitching about 2 weeks ago (probably due to stress) and got progressively worse to the point that it was very noticeable and very embarrassing. But it’s finally gone. Phew! I can stop wearing sunglasses indoors now. Jk.
