Fiona and me in the snow

(no subject)

Its really bda when your mom calls you up and says "why haven't you been writing?" She's one of my most loyal readers.

Well, I'm sorry I haven't been writing. The thing is, when it gets down to the end of the semester, you generally, if you want to do well, have close to zero time to do anything but either study or rest or eat. I try to rest and eat a lot because that seems to give me enough energy to do work.

I've been doing a lot of catching up, doing lots of assignments since I got back. The only exciting thing I did yesterday was pick out a laptop that I'll get to use for next semester / for a long while :) that the NSF is funding. It should be really neat, even more so because I should have enough battery power in using it to connect to my cel phone's modem, very cool because I can be on aim or lj while being on the road. I'll also be able to take it to class, which is a bonus.

The weather is bitterly cold out there. I walked back from Bell just about twenty minutes ago, and I'm just starting to warm up. I think it'll be time to get the really really heavy jacket out for tomorrow as it'll be absolutely bitter cold then, especially for the windy trip to class on the golf cart.

A good end to my week will be my show again. Hopefully I'll get to wram up with some hot tea and good company, as I've got new music that I can't wait to play.

For the moment though, I'm really tired as I stayed up late last night and got up early. I think I'm not making sense anymore either in this entry, so I should probably quit while I'm ahead, right? :) At least now I've updated the masses, I hope to have time to read friends page very soon. My life continues sunday after next when I can officially go home, home for the holidays.
