At long last, an update! [Nov. 28th, 2006|12:41 pm]

Ok. Now for something about my actual life:

BUSY! 3.5 weeks of school to go. I can't wait for it to end...my brain needs to be catatonic for a few days. I will miss it though...besides the overloaded mental capacity I really like my classes.

Thanksgiving Break was blessed. It was one of the best Thanksgivings I've ever had. I love Ari and his family...it was great to spend it with them. I even took a three-day-long break from homework and it felt wonderfully great to not have to memorize the reproductive structures of mosses and research for all my papers and such. I needed that. And I still should be able to pull off all A's this semester.

My new roommate is GREAT compared to Vicky. It feels nice to be living with an actual, feeling human being for a change. She's interesting and...the novelty...she even talks to me! I'm no longer scared of going back to the Hilton each night. Wow.
Oh, and we had the hearing. The housing guy's supposed to call me this week and tell me his decision. It's over. Yay!

Ari and I are planning a trip to California this summer, if everything works out. We're gonna take Amtrak across the country and see Mama and my family in the bay area, and probably my dad and Linda too. We'll be there for over a month...I'm so excited! I've been terribly homesick and this gives me something to look forward to.

I'm continuing with counseling and it's helping me be aware of new things to work on. I had forgotten how wonderfully constructive it feels to go there and discuss these things. Such a stress reliever!

That is it. Sorry I've been MIA on LJ lately. Between class and work I've had no time for anything, not even homework. In three weeks this should change drastically and I'll be able to pay proper respects to all my lovely friends on here.

I just thought I would extend you an invitation to talk in my journal a bit, as I'm really feeling isolated right now. I'm starting to wonder what the point is. I wish there was someone I could get help with my living situation about now.
