Weekend Plans

This weekend will be a mix of total work and utter fun. My summer class started a week late, so we have a make up class tonight. Yes, that’s right. My professor thought we’d all appreciate making up that three-hour class on a Friday night. He obviously has his pulse on the lives of his students. We’ve only met twice so far and the first session went by quickly. Tuesday’s class dragged beyond belief, though, and I’m suspecting tonight’s will be the same. Luckily a classmate / friend and I are getting together with our Todds (her fiance is also named Todd) for dinner after class, so at least there’s that to look forward to.

This weekend is Figment, which is one of the best art events of the year in NYC. It takes place out on Governors Island, which I adore. The whole island is transformed into a collaborative and interactive art space, and I can’t wait to see what New York’s most creative minds have put together this year. Unfortunately the weather will suck (NYC has recently turned into Seattle in terms of rainfall, overcast skies, and an inability to produce any sunlight), and I’ll be doing mad amounts of homework for my class. My first big paper is due on Tuesday and I was randomly selected to do my presentation (everyone has to present one paper this semester) in the first round, which means I have to put together a plan for that, too.
