Welcome back, paid account!

I am setting out on the final reading!push of Princess Arjumand Draft 1, Chapter 2 (to be followed by a nap - hopefully longer than the one I just TRIED to take, boo - and then the final writing!push). By the time I am finished, I will (uh, hopefully) have finished in three days, hazardous amounts of Red Bull, a polyphasic sleep schedule, many, many hours of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 26 in D Major on repeat, and a partridge in a pear tree, what usually takes me a good week of skulking sullenly around the library and procrastinating.

Maybe this is karmic redressment for the wailing and rending of garments / library shenanigans / drifts of paper everywhere that accompanied Ch.1? Whatever, I'm not complaining.

Anyway, my point was: COMMENT SPAM. Quick, before I decide not to push my luck and delete my LJ again until everything is handed in! Pretty pictures! Rants! Drabbles! Retarded youtube clips of babies and cats! GO.

Now entering the gently unmoored stage, including, but not limited to, rocking back and forth, getting up and then promptly forgetting why, and talking quietly to myself.

Ho hum.

You can tell me to stfu any time now.

Now I'm writing about phonological changes and reductions in the Latin vowel system, except I keep checking back and misreading /o/ as me having mistakenly lol'd italicised...ly (italically?) in my linguistics essay.

Getting hopped up on caffeine and learning how to decline nouns is way more fun than I thought it would be.

I have six cans of Red Bull, ten hours' writing time, one set of awesome notes, one set of shitty notes, thirteen pages to go, and all of livejournal to spam as I conquer them.

I'm amazed at how coherent this linguistics essay1 looks on the surface, considering I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT LINGUISTICS.

1An explanation of the loss of Latin2 case endings w/r/t nouns and adjectives in the evolution of Spanish.
