Since last we spoke (March 2012 edition)

Of late I have...

...given up our community garden plot. I still get SO GIDDY every time I remember that we don't have to go weed or plant or do our service hours. Turns out we kind of hate gardening. Who knew? (Above photo taken last spring by my dad. See you in hell, garden.)

...procured a new doctor named Dr. Dai. Pronounced "die." He has now officially joined Dr. Slaughter on my list of Specialists With Terrifying Names. Fortunately, he's just an optometrist, so I'm not totally convinced he can inflict any mortal damage upon me. I'm keeping my guard up, though.

...gotten interrupted halfway through a paper-writing all-nighter by an email from our TA explaining that our professor had been in an accident and broken his leg, class the next day was cancelled, and papers were now due Friday instead of Tuesday. Which left me with two dilemmas. Moral dilemma: Rejoice or feel sad for the professor? Intellectual dilemma: Finish writing the paper while I still have momentum or go home and put it off until Thursday night? In conclusion, I think we all know how I resolved both of those. Ahem.

...gotten progressively worse at packing lunches and dinners for school days and getting all my homework done early. O early-semester resolutions, how quickly you fade.

All that being said, school is good, three-class courseloads are the best thing ever invented, March in Austin is as gorgeous as it is every year, and I have faith that someday R will finish reupholstering the living room couch so that it will consist of more than just cotton batting on a wooden frame.

Also, this happened.

Hope everyone is doing well and having a good spring!

  2. I interrupt my commenting hiatus to let you know that I love that you hate gardening. Worst. hippie. ever.
