Should I stay, or should I go…

Ah ha! If you’re observant you’ll notice the template change. I had trouble adding links with the other, so I switched to one where I didn’t need to add them. All I had to do was change them. Besides, change is good.

I am debating whether or not I should go to tutorial tomorrow morning. I’m in the studying mood right now, and don’t want to ruin it by going to bed. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

I guess I need to review the Dixie Chicks concert. In one word: amazing. I saw Melissa Etheridge in Portland this past June, and that was a great concert. But I didn’t know a lot of the material, so most of it was lost on me, which was too bad. But I knew pretty much every song at this concert. I’m a ‘recent’ Dixie Chicks convertt, only really beginning to listen to them when they came out with their bluegrass album, ‘Home’. On Thursday night I witnessed what true musicians they are, from violin, to mandolin, to banjo and every type of guitar in between. I felt like I was listening to a CD – that’s how good they were.

I was thanful that there wasn’t a lot of politicking. I’m paying for music, not propaganda. ‘Not Ready to Make Nice’ got a standing ovation, and the Chicks seemed a bit taken aback at the response. I got goosebumps, and because of my cynical ear, I don’t get those too often.

To sum up, it was a great experience, and I’ll gladly go see them again.

The weekend was okay. I went home to Rosthern on Friday for my Aunt Delores’ funeral, stayed the night, was woken up at 5:00 am by Sadie, went to church, was fed lunch by my Grandma and retreated back to the city to do homework. And homework. And more homework.
I had to read Margaret Atwood’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ for my Women Studies class. I’d never read anything by Atwood, and avoided her novels, for no other particular reason than I thought she was weird. I think I can now say I was greatly misinformed. ‘Tale’ is a strange novel, but it makes its points clearly and provocatively. I’ll read more of Atwood’s work, but not now. I need to recover from this one first.

Today I did more homework (I have 3 essays due in the next 2 1/2 weeks on top of my other readings, summaries, etc.). I then went to Michelle’s where she, Jessica and I watched the ____ beat the Stamps (for an explanation of the ____, see my sports blog). Then I came home, made a few phone calls, had some supper and now I’m procrastinating a little by updating this here blog.

And now I need to get back to work. Feminism is calling…
