Hey! Thanks for the java comments! That project took FOREVER (and it didn’t help that I got distracted for a good 2 hours playing with those spirals once I got the program to work!) Hopefully I’ll be able to put some of this to use and learn some AJAX at some point.

I’ve been doing a lot of research for the possibility of me studying abroad next Fall. I was dead set on going to Spain, but once I found out I needed 2 more semesters of Spanish “just to be safe” I said to heck with it and settled on going somewhere in the UK. After going through the different options, I’m basically down to deciding between University of Edinburgh and University of Glasgow. I’m not sure if it’s all going to pan out yet. I still have to talk to people in all sorts of different departments, get all sorts of approvals, do applications, get accepted, make sure I can pay for it, etc. etc. etc. It would be REALLY cool to go though!

I can’t believe how quickly this last month has flown! It seems like yesterday I was blogging about my imminent entry to the world of adulthood, and now it’s almost time for me to go to Chicago! My plane ticket came in today. It’s pretty cool. I’ve never really been in charge of my own plane ticket before (as ridiculous as that sounds!) Looks like I’ll finally be able to cross another place off of my Wanna-be World Traveler page!

It almost snowed today, but it wasn’t cold enough (it was 34 deg.) so we only got some REALLY COLD wind and rain. I’m on the lookout and you can be sure I’m going to report it here as soon as it happens! We have a few more chances of snow this week. I just REALLY hope it doesn’t decide to snow for the first time while I’m in Chicago!

Other than that there’s not really much else that’s new. I’ve been completely swamped with work coming at me from all ends. I thought I would be able to recuperate this past weekend, but that didn’t end up happening. I’m still debating whether or not I want to go to AAW. Part of me realllly wants to go to hang out with some of the RYLA counselors, but the other part me couldn’t be bothered with spending nearly 2 full days on a bus to go there and back. We’ll see I guess.

I’ve uploaded some new photos to flickr, so enjoy! The fall colors are just about ready to give way to the winter starkness, so I figured I should get some shots in before it’s too late.

Time for bed! until next time…
