I finished reading by Tracey Chevalier today. My father "ordered" it for me on Mooch.com where users can trade old books to get rid of their stashes and acquire other books. I really enjoyed it (and finished it in about 3 days - reading on the train, mostly) and thoroughly recommend it. It sorta had a
    Da Vinci Code
vibe about it, with a mix of family history, art history, France and a mystery. It definitely held my interest and was a page turner!

I.am.so.super.stressed. I'm not totally sure I'm functioning normally - I find myself worrying about really dumb things, not being productive and just generally not being pleasant around others! And I so don't mean it, but there is just so much I need to be doing, and then I think about what I need to do, and then I won't get any of it done, then someone will ask me to either do something and I snap cause I know I should be doing homework, or I'm just so obsessed with planning my homework in my head that I seem to mutter something incoherent. It's really not a good thing. I want the semester to come to an end, but at the same time, I don't want it to at all because then that means that all my work would be do. And clearly I need more time for that.

It's 11:09. I'm going to go to bed. To go to bed before midnight would be fabulous. I was planning on trying to get done a page or 2 or a 12 page paper that is due next week, but honestly, I don't think I can write coherently at this point anyway....

Ooh I liked The Virgin Blue too! Oh except I thought that French guy she ends up falling in love with was kind of stereotypical...the whole jazz pianist/librarian thing...

haha, that's true. I figured he had to be a librarian to be able to help her with her search. But when the got to the piano bar, I was like, now why does he have to play piano too?? haha
