S Am Houston

Today in history:
  • 1836- Sam Houston is inaugurated as President of the Republic of Texas.
  • 1964- Jean-Paul Sartre is awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature but turns down the honor. (a wise precedent, perhaps...?)

Inspiration from the Berkeley College library:
not sure it's true, but poignant nonetheless

Shaw didn't include pain and hand cramps, which were center stage during my International Studies midterm today. Being done feels great though—never before in my life was it so cathartic to predict the disastrous consequences of climate change, the danger of nuclear proliferation, and general world doom. Now I'm done with midterms...until Monday.

(Also, my TA said she would give extra credit if we incorporated a cat into our essays, but because I ran out of time, I just wrote "MEOW" in large letters on my last page. I just realized that might seem kind of creepy...)
