I don’t know if it’s like this for everyone else, but for me, whenever it gets close to a school break I always get REALLY homesick – like I just can’t wait to get out of here and have things back to “normal” again. It’s kind of like when you get to a restaurant when you’re not even hungry. You know that the food is just around the corner, and you weren’t even hungry when you got there, but all of a sudden you’re absolutely STARVING.

My friend Ashleigh is coming this weekend. I’m pretty excited. She’s my first non-family visitor from home. It should be a lot of fun. It’s supposed to rain ALL weekend, but that’s alright…we’ll find SOMETHING to do! I’ll be taking the trip home with her on Sunday and then I have an ENTIRE WEEK of relaxation at home. Sure, I have a TON of work to get done while I’m there, but just being off campus slices the stress level in 1/2!

Other than that, there’s not much else new. I’m done with all of my exams until finals which is SUCH a relief. I did REALLY well on one and absolutely bombed the other, but the mean was somewhere in the 60’s, so I guess it’s fixable.

All that’s left are my 3 papers for independent study, my media diary for Psych of Social Computing, 2-3 CS Java projects, and a final presentation for History of Computers. Oh, and about 8-10 labs to catch up on for CS. Then it’s the end of the semester, study week, finals and DONE! I should be going home sometime around the 16th or 17th…a month away!

I know I rarely ever talk about TV, but LORELAI AND CHRISTOPHER!?!? I don’t know what to think! And the Lane and Zack thing is really cute! I’m so happy for them! (notice the lack of spoilers there.. you’re welcome ;))

Well, that’s about all I think. Maybe I’ll get a head start on some of those labs??

Thanks for all the comments everyone! I really appreciate it!

Until next time…
