Noooo Legend of the Seeker was canceled! It's not one of my absolute favorite shows by any means (I would choose renewing Chuck over it, in terms of shows that are on the bubble), but it's so enjoyable! And I wasn't paying attention to its ratings at all or how likely it was to come back, so I just kind of took it for granted that it would. And there are only a few episodes left in the season, so I'm assuming they didn't write the finale as a series finale, and I always hate it when that happens. boo.

So this weekend was a super fail in getting crap done that I should have. I wanted to be done with my 8-10 page Mood and Anxiety paper by the end of the weekend! Ok, that was never going to happen, but I was thinking at least halfway through! Instead, I did nothing on Saturday (wait, not true! I totally solved Einstein's Riddle without cheating at all. Although I think it's more a test of patience and organizational abilities than intelligence) and wasted many, many hours on Sunday before only getting research done.

On the plus side, I find my topic really fascinating, as I believe I've mentioned before. But that just means I find reading the research really interesting; writing the paper is still going to be a pain in the ass. Have I mentioned how much I hate writing papers? Because I do. Which would be why I procrastinated starting this all weekend when I really should have just gotten it done.

I totally got an A/A- (yes, the professor gives out half grades like that) on my class facilitation for Mood and Anxiety! Along with the grade, she supplied us with the comments we were given on peer evals, so on the one hand, I'm a little disappointed based on the A- part of the grade and the fact that despite the majority of the feedback I was given was very positive, the negative tends to outweigh the positive in my mind and I can't help but focus the criticisms I was given. But on the other (more important and not idiotic and overly self-critical) hand, I wouldn't have guessed that I would have done that well! I thought I'd have more negative feedback than I got, and I would've expected an A- to be the highest I would get. And that's higher than the midterm grade I got (an A-), so maybe if I totally rock this final paper (which I'm still having a hell of a time writing, ugh) and maybe if the grade on the group presentation was good (which obviously I can't change now, but I think we did decently?), I could still get an A in this class? Maybe? That would be pretty awesome. And I'm no longer worried about getting a B/B+ in this class, so that also helps.

um, what else. I don't know. My life is very boring right now. This is the last full week of classes, and then next week is finals (well, we have classes on Monday and Tuesday, but I have exams in 2 of my classes, a review session in another, and in the last one we're going to do course evaluations and discuss what we wrote our final papers on, so it doesn't really feel like normal days of class). And then I'll be done with this semester! Finally.

I am so sad that they canceled Legend of the Seeker! I remembering hearing awhile back that it was on the bubble for I thought for sure it would be renewed! I don't understand what there isn't too love about this show, it's total crack and super pretty to look at.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I remember hearing it was on the bubble awhile ago, but I guess I just assumed it would be renewed for some reason. The show started off a little slow, but I've been really adoring it this season. And it is definitely one of the prettiest shows on TV right now.
