I woke up this morning, at 9:30 again :(, and everyone was scrambling around trying to get the main living room ready for Scott to check out, The fun started at 10:30 when this guy from KNWA, the local NBC affiliate. The college of engineering has been distributing a fact sheet around about me in hopes that my story can have some exposure and in hopes that maybe some day a chemical company or some chemical industry person might see me and agree that yes, I can do chemical engineering. So I wasn't surprised when I got the call. What I didn't eexpect was taht it was 10:30 and he wanted to do the story on me at 11:00, thirty minutes away. I wasn't even close to being ready; I hadn't had a shower and I wasn't shaved. The only thing I had time to do was shave, so I did that, and met with the guy. We basically sat in the tutoring room in the quad and talked about me and how I do things. They had asked me to bring my laptop down, so when we were filming me using the computer, the only web page I thought to bring up was my journal. I hope he does a good job on the story because it's going to be on both the 5:00 and the 6:00 news. I'm sure it will be fine. I guess I'll just take a shower tomorrow early just in case this thing happens again. Reporters, guess you gotta have em, right?

I did go to the ELC this afternoon to go to the going away party for our current director. Though she'd only been a director for a short time, she'd worked for the ELC for two years. She's only going across campus, bud we tutors will miss her. We had good food and I got to talk to all kinds of cool people that I hadn't talked to in a long time, so that was cool.

And that's about it. I think I'm going to start to pack a bit tonight so that I don't have to do it all in one night and totally stress out. Gotta feed Fiona, and watch this news story. More soon.

    The plan is to go to the beach this afternoon, but I'm not sure when. We don't have too much special planned besides that, but it's the last full day…

    I'm not sure what the plan is today, but we have done what, in my opinion, is the perfect vacation activity, slept in and veged out so far. I think…

    Well, we made it, finally! Everyone's up right now, but we're not doing anything so I'm writing. We got here last night, after several delays and…
