On Friday, I took my jazz exam. (The same one that WF, MZ and I were studying for in the emergency room on Monday night -- believe it or not, that study session really helped me.) Two hours, and the professor for that class wanted us to write the two hour-long essays by hand. I feel really Old Skool, but I also understand with a much deeper understanding why the GMS lobbied to have Comps done on computer.
Today, I finished my Bartók paper. It's short, as the professor requested, though it's a topic that could certainly be expanded into a longer paper or a dissertation. But he was specifically looking for short -- that's why he assigned a 10 - 15 pager instead of the more seminar-length 20 - 25 pager. He came right out and said that he wasn't interested in reading 20 - 25 pages per student, especially because he had undergrad papers to deal with as well. So I gave him essentially the 12-page version of an argument that could be much longer. And there was much rejoicing.
All of which means that this quarter is basically Done.
