I really haven't written in a month and a half?
That seems a little hard to believe, but time has been going by ludicrously fast. I mean, I have a week and a half left before finals, and more work than I could possibly complete in such a time frame. But it has to happen, I guess.
What's even scarier is that in three weeks time, I will be done for the semester. Three weeks! I remember the day I left for Aurora like it was 3 seconds ago.
Basically, my status is very much the same as it was in my last entry: I have a constant companion in my homework that is a Mountain of Doom (fondly dubbed George); I haven't knit in weeks; and I still haven't caught up in my reading (honestly, it's not going to happen--for me or anyone else, try as we might). I did get to pick my classes for next semester, and if all goes well, I'll get to take all of them. We find out tomorrow, tentatively.
I had a pleasant Thanksgiving break last week, even though I can't really remember what I did. All I know is that I didn't get nearly enough work done. My room is thoroughly clean though! You can always tell when I have a lot of work, because even picking up after myself becomes a more attractive chore. Thanksgiving Day was nice--I didn't get up until 11:30, and a few hours later my roommate picked me up. We went to her older sister's house for dinner, so I got to meet some of her family. Afterwards, we headed to a friend's house near school, where we hung out until about 2am. It was a pretty good Thanksgiving, actually.
Happy Belated Thanksgiving to you all!
Oh, but you know what is totally the best part?! It SNOWED. Yes, real live snow flurry action. It didn't stick around for very long, because it eventually turned into rain, but when it initially came out of the clouds it was SNOW. All the natives here were laughing at how excited I was....
That's what I love--the cold weather. My scarves are necessary here! They get to serve their intended purpose!
So with nothing else to report, I will sign off.
I'll be home soon...
