in economics class now and am heavy-lidded from lack of sleep, boredom and studying a hastily borrowed textbook called droit constitutionnel et institutions politiques. it strikes me that nothing at sciences po really moves me intellectually except the law classes, yet at the same time it is those that i seem to have absolutely no knack for. i only barely scraped through law 1st semester last year and then constitutionalism in the 2nd. 10 pages into my book and i’m beginning to realise that the course is really quite excellent, but heavily based on law. this, coupled with the fact that my french is still pitifully inconsistent, tells me that tomorrow’s exam is going to be a nice 3-hour trip to academic hell.
wish me bon voyage.
