And then after that, we had to present our Anthropology projects at the Student Union, and basically everyone just stood around doing nothing for two hours while the professors went around grading our posters. What a waste of time, though we did get extra points if we stayed until 9:30.
But the thing is, I looked around at the other posters, and everyone else's projects seemed so much more interesting and fun than mine. Like there were people studying the different "cultures" of the CNU campus; one girl went around wearing a veil for a week to see peoples' reactions; another group did their project on homeless people and they actually lived outside and begged for food themselves. And me? I did research on environmentally-friendly cleaning products. And actually, the part I researched didn't turn out to be as relevant to the overall conclusion as the rest of my group members'.
It's the same with my Fear and Magic project. Other people seem to have interesting topics, but as for me, I don't have any transportation, and I don't really know anybody in the class. So I'm working alone, and my project is testing oracles. In other words, I flip a coin for some yes/no questions every day to see how often it's correct. How BORING!! It's so boring I want to cry, especially considering other people are going out to graveyards and stuff. It's such a great opportunity, and I don't have the resources to take advantage of it.
And now I'm worn out from standing around all night and I still have to research and write an argument paper due in the morning. Guh. But after that, I'm going to Anime USA with the Anime Club and may possibly get to watch the new Avatar episode with an Avatar cosplay group. That would be very cool.
