Sleep? Psh. Sleep is for wimps.

You know your life is hectic when the prospect of sleeping in the next day fills you with an inordinate amount of excitement. I’m pretty sure the only thing keeping me vertical at this moment is the knowledge that tonight I may actually get a full 8 hours of sleep. I can’t wait! 😀

But before I can sleep, I have to finish work, read, start writing a paper that’s due on Monday, go to class, and prepare for a presentation I’m doing tomorrow (on the UN Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force).  In tonight’s class (Comparative Politics) I’ll be getting my midterm back.  Monday I turned in the second paper for my International Terrorism class (an analysis of the 1946 King David Hotel bombing). I’m very happy with how I did on my first paper, and hopefully he likes this one just as much.

As usual, lots of stuff going on at Korbel this week. Internship search strategy sessions, internship student panels (you get to hear from the 2nd-year students about where they went, how they got the internship, and whether it was amazing or awful), a showing of “Seoul Train” by CORD, a presentation by two Cambodian victims of human trafficking, a Peace Corps information session, and a Korbel Halloween Party on Saturday. I’m sure I’ve left out a few things, but I think you get the picture.

Speaking of Halloween…. I LOVE Halloween. What I don’t love is figuring out a costume. I was going to be a character from TrueBlood, but I’ve since abandoned that idea and I now have less than a week to figure something out. The fact that it’s going to be freezing cold will definitely need to be taken into consideration (it’s been about 42 degrees during the day recently, dropping into the 30s at night…brrr!). On Friday some friends and I are going to a haunted house but we haven’t figured out a plan for Halloween yet. I’m hoping for a huge costume party in a mansion. I’ve always wanted to go to one of those. Anyone have a mansion they’d like to share?

Hej då!
