Huzzah! The comics shop across the street has finally started stocking new stuff! The store isn’t very large, so the selection isn’t fantastic, but I get what I need. Today I just picked up the new issue of Astonishing X-Men, despite the new issues of Fables and Runaways enticing me from the shelves, urging me to get through the Fables trades and start feeling the Brian K. Vaughn love.
Of course, I’m trying to keep distractions and temptations to a minumum. Next week is going to be one of those “magnet” times, where just about every class has something due.
Monday I have a math homework due and a quiz, but the past homework has been coming fairly easily for me, and I believe I won’t have a problem being prepared.
Tuesday, I’m giving a short talk about my summer internship experience to the Siggraph kidlets.
Wednesday, I have a Physics quiz, plus the hefty amount of weekly reading for my Fairytales class (we’re on Snow White, and we’re reading Snow, Glass, Apples, among other stories).
Thursday, I have my first film paper, which is getting off to a great start. Thursday is also Neil Gaiman and John Hodgman day, and while I’m definitely going to have to miss Math, I’m fairly sure I can still attend film class and get to New York in time to guarantee a seat.
Friday, I have my first assignment for Computer Graphics, which is going to be a real challenge. I’ll definitely have to bring my laptop to the Hodgman/Gaiman event.
Saturday is PhauxCon, and I’m doing a brief talk on Jim Butcher’s books.
