Well! My first pincushion session is over. I feel kind of spacy. Batbayar (Mongolian) is really cool, though. I had three needles in my right wrist, two in the back of my left hand, one each in my ankles, and one right on my third eye (on my forehead, goofballs).
Hehe, I feel a certain masochistic sense of validation when a medical professional touches my shoulders and exclaims, "Woah! They're like rocks!"
I have another session on Friday, and two next week, then probably one a week for a few weeks after that. God, this is going to break the bank. But I have to stick it out to see what happens.
Other than that, I'm kind of depressed because I got a B for my Government exam (the multiple choice one). And not a great B either. Humph. The final score for the class is an average of the letter grade of the three multiple choice exams, so I have to score over ninety in the next two to make an A. I hate coming from behind. I guess that's what happens when you do ZERO work on a subject all semester and then try cramming five weeks' work into less than 24 hours, despite warnings from past students of the subject that it's a tough course.
