i talked to Norma last night, after not knowing what was going on in her life for a while._ it's comforting, i must say; after having written not long ago about distance between friends, it's nice to "hear" from her, know that she's ok.
i'm planning on taking a couple of courses in art this next semester; if all goes well, i'll take 'artistic anatomy'-which is exciting to an incredible extent- and 'great masters of modern art' -which seems absolutely necessary, given my ignorance of current and not so current affairs in the 'artistic world'._aside from those two, i'm planning on taking a seminar on Nietzsche and a course on Husserl as well as attending to a seminar on Aristotle's Physics._ if i manage to do such thing, i will be only three semesters away from graduating: two semesters of seminars and 'electives' and a semester for writing my monography._it seems as though i will be able to prove Amanda wrong, and everyone else who thought that this was not the right choice to make along with her._ i must say, with everyday past, i grow more passionate about what i'm doing, more interested in what is implied by following this path._i guess i'm finally starting to get a notion of what it means to acquire the ever so desired balance between what for so long seemed to be in conflict._if not that, i am, at least, starting to get a taste of the intention of doing so.
you're right, j.,i should just stop dwelling in my fears and take a good look around, to see that those that are here are in fact here, even it if it is just for now._but you must remember that fears are, primarily, haunting, and so, not easy to evade, no, not at all.
i'm getting glasses, on friday._i'm finally going to be protected from that evil light that lurks -yes, funny enough- around every corner._Marta said once that i would look terribly geek-ish with glasses; she's right, i look like a nerd, geek, dork or whatever other name can be thought of._but i'll be a nerd that can see that she's being made fun of, and that's a lot more than what i can say for now.
my mother brought me several books from her trip to spain; Aristotle's Physics , Reproduction of Animals, a manual on medieval philosophy and a book by Montesquieu, which are now of my 'to read' list._ i've read a couple of very interesting articles on Plato's Parmenides and Aristotle's critique to his arguments that are seemingly useful for my monography.
