I'm working on my killer essay right now and let me tell you, it's killer. I'm trying to shorten it down a little bit but it feels like I'm not accurately portraying the complexity of the political event which I'm writing about (the Cuban revolution). I've just recently stopped writing about the time leading up to the revolution (16th century and forward) till the end of the revolution (2nd of January 1959) and I've done a brief description of the political climate of that time. Right now I'm writing about Ernesto Guevara and later I shall determine the importance of his presence during the revolution (which ultimately, wasn't great even if he was already then somewhat of an admired and mysterious character).

What have I written so far? Well, 4,467 words should give you a rough estimate just how much overboard this essay have gone. I love the madness, but I know deep down - that I can't overdo it.

Other than that, fandom life has as you can tell, sort of stopped in midstream. I'm putting everything on pause because I have this assignment to turn in on Wednesday and it's absolutely ESSENTIAL that I get it in by then because otherwise, I will DIE.

I applied for the SAAS tutition-paying thing today! Yay! I called SAAS just to make sure that my application was correct and then I sent it in. Thanks a million for all the help I got! I know I didn't say it in the comments or before, but just so you know that I APPRECIATED IT GREATLY.

Now a question for you, flist, since I'm greatly curious: Do you have something, aside from TV shows and the like, which you are really passionate about/interested in? My own interest lies in philosophical debates and history and politics, although I'm more or less a novice on all of these areas. I just love anything that will prove to be an interlectual challenge.

good luck with keeping the essay form turning into a monster!

and to answer your question... well, I feel quite pasisonate/am quite interested in the HIV/AIDS issue. Well, I'm not actively doing anything about it right now, but it's an underlying interest you know?
And really random stuff XD Like right now I am intereste din weird animal sex life XD
I generally hate debates though... and politics. So even if the LGBTQ rights is something that's important to me I don't get much involved you know?
I like facts.

That is just a fascinating topic! I really like it. Good luck on it!

I get like a child whenever I pass a bookstore. It is like an OCD because I can't just pass it. I have to check it out. My favourites are second-hand bookstores. Where I live there is suuuuuch a wonderful second-hand bookstore. I am thankful that it is a bit to travel, because I would be ruined if it wasn't..

Speaking of books. I am passionate about poetry. I don't write, but to read. It is just so wonderful! My favourite poet is Robert Frost and Karin Boye.
