HEY MAMBO! MAMBO ITALIANO!!  
I JUST TOTALLY PWNED MY ART HISTORY FINAL!!! I LOVE ROMAN ART!! I

*cough* Um...yeah, I'm a little hyper. That happens when I find out I could very well get an A in one of my hardest classes.

Perioding Roman art is easy as Hell, cause you just have to know what group of Caesars it was under--it's not that hard to see the difference between "Augustan", "Flavian", and "Antonine", once you see examples of it. I got to scribble out my worst one, which was hard because there was only two that I had trouble on.

The essay that I freaked out over? That had to be three pages? The question was "'Roman art and architecture was no more than bad copies of Greek arts.' Defend or deny." I HAVE DEFEATED THE GREEKS!!!! Or, rather...idiots who don't see Rome as having it's own distinct culture. I ended up with three and a half pages, and had to stop myself because I was running out of room (she gave us the paper to write on, so that we wouldn't get the chance to cheat.) I basically went on a rant--in the introduction I said that it was an insult to the Romans.

And that paper that I have been complaining about? I totally pwned that, too! I kept telling myself that it sucked. Apparantly it didn't. I got an A! It's worth a third of my grade! SCORE!!

So I've been singing Mambo Italiano since I got out. Cause I totally got to defend their culture. In some ways I like Roman art better--they were the best portraitists in the history of carving portraits, and they liked colour, and everything they did all the way back to the Etruscan times had lots of movement with people actually doing stuff. Maybe I like it so much because I've been trying so hard to do that myself?

Oh, it totally did.

Now I just have to freak out about my last two >.

Hopefully these two work out just as well. I'm in freak-out mode right now too, except that I'm not motivated enough to actually do anything about it. Good luck with your stuff :D
