My costume went down great! ♥ I may have had nearly twenty pins holding everything in place on my head, but it worked like a charm, and was mostly not uncomfortable. I had a bit of a headache by the end of the day, of course... But it wasn't that bad!

I just saw my anthropology prof posted our current grades online - the whole class, organised by id number. I got a 129. Out of 130. Which I'd call a resounding success! Although I didn't get the highest grade; somebody got .2 points more than me. I do have the highest overall grade in the class, though! And I don't even have an A! (I have an 89%, so a B. B+, if you're feeling charitable.) I had thought I was doing passably decent in anthropology, but it's a relief to know that I'm doing brilliantly despite the... not putting in as much effort as I could be. I have pretty much the highest grade in every category, but I completely forgot to reply to an e-mail so I'm down sixteen random points (replying got you eight; not replying lost eight); I'll ask the professor about it later tonight. ...Or I guess I could just eat the deduction; it should get a lot smaller by the time final grades go out, since there will be about twice as many points factored into the final percentage.

I started writing today, although I started late and so am pretty behind. I think I only have about 400 words so far. I'll probably work on it in class tonight, and when I get home, as well. I'd like to hit 2k by tonight... If I make every chapter 2k words, then I'd hit the goal before the end of the month. Of course, the prologue is only about 350, so there's that plan out the window. Other chapters should be a lot longer, though.

It's kind of weird; I breezed through the first day last year. Of course, I also spent more time writing on the first day last year, too, so there's that. Assuming I somehow magically end up less broke (or at least only about as broke as I am right now) I might go out to Starbucks or something tomorrow and write a bit. ...Or I might just sit at home and procrastinate; that works too. I kind of want to do all my writing this year by hand, since I have a convenient notebook for it and everything, but I'm not sure how productive I'll be doing that when I'm not at school with no other options. /: I guess we'll see.

Anyway, got to start getting ready for class now!
