Juggling and... Struggling?

All work and no play makes Michelle a dull girl. *sob*

Here's a little something funny I read in The Star today:

McDonald's is miffed, but Merriam-Webster editors say "McJob" is a word that is here to stay. The 11th edition of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines a "McJob" as "a low-paying job that requires little skill and provides little opportunity for advancement."

Haha, apparently the word has been in use for 17 years. I'm lovin' it!

What I Learned

Today I had another art project (research) due. It took me forever to finish because I was handmaking (cutting, colouring and pasting) 30 booklets for everyone in the class. I thought for sure that I would have been able to finish by midnight... 2 am at the latest. My mom even helped me do some colouring, which probably saved me about 1.5 hours. Then as the hours progressed I kept thinking, okay I'll finish at 3:00... then 4:00... the 5:00, then 5:30. I finished at 6am (why do I always end up overshooting by so much?!) During the night I kept the TV on and played my Beauty and the Beast DVD twice (actually the first time I played it since I bought it last fall): the first was the special edition version of the movie, the second was the special edition version with commentary. Yeah, that was my fun night.

Sooo... I did my research on colour in 1950's consumer culture and here is what I learned:

  1. Doing your research at Chapters for 2 hours yields 10 times more information than 2 weeks of research in the library.
  2. 30 is a really large number.
  3. Mrs. Potts is really just a hopping head.
