Well, school was to resume yesterday. <pauses to let the Northerners and Midwesterners laugh for a bit> Yea…that did not go according to plan. I was largely unperturbed by the cancellations as they–well, let’s be honest here–they really just delayed the inevitable.

If you can imagine the most chipper of individuals, the morning-est of morning persons–that is not me. I am a creature of the night, of the wee hours.

Conversely, I am truly excited about the course. It’s being taught by a friend of mine (J.

My family has been encouraging me for a while to start seriously writing, so I’m testing the waters…at 8:00 AM…in 2-degree weather. It’s like the schedulers don’t even know writers. I should request hot cocoa and blankets for this class. Or I suppose I could bring some…

Other than that, I’m taking Neurolinguistics and a LIN elective titled “Doctor Doolittle Deluded.” You guessed it. I’m taking the latter for its name. For now, that’s it. Just those three. I’m kind of excited by the easier semester. It may set me back a tad, but I think I can live with that.
