More Work, More School

Recently I have just been working. Today was actually really busy for me in the office, but really slow at the restaurant. I finished work early tonight. Luckily I am finished with most of my homework for a while, so I dont have to worry about that. Yesterday I went to Boarders and studied for 2 or 3 hours. Tomorrow i will probably wash my clothes and then go to the library. I need to start researching for my paper. It isn't due until November, but i want to get started early because I know I will be really busy in about a month.

Just a word of advice: Buy gas now!!! The price is only going to get higher for a month.

Here is a poem about Helen of Troy. I think it is interestinng because she is usually thought of as the most beautiful woman ever, but this has a different take.

All Greece hates
the still eyes in the white face,
the lustre of olives
where she stands,
and the white hands.
All Greece reviles
the wan face when she smiles,
hating it deeper still
when it grows wan and white,
remembering past enchantments
and past ills.

Greece sees unmoved,
God's daughter, born of love,
the beauty of cool feet
and slenderest knees,
coul love indeed the maid,
only if she were laid,
white ash amid funereal cypresses.
