So, Jamie's update made me feel guilty for not updating. I've also been doing "nothing" even as my individual moments are often accompanied by the thoughts "this would make a funny blog entry." But the overall picture is that I'm accomplishing "nothing" with the trajectory of my life, and therefore it feels empty. But even that's not true. So here's what is going on with me:
I have a really nice boyfriend, even though he stood me up at the concert I had to go review last night. I burned the inside of my mouth on a burrito. I fell asleep in the bathtub. I have a golf-ball sized growth on my thyroid and need to get a biopsy WITH A NEEDLE IN MY NECK on Monday (I KNOW!). I play and enjoy D&D a great deal and will miss it in the coming holiday season. But I am looking forward to being home this Christmas for almost a month, even though I will miss aformentioned boyfriend. I will probably go to Russia over spring break (ahh, balmy Russia in March), and am looking for funding to get me back to India over the summer. Right now, I'm in the middle of administerting oral exams (8 hours a day, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday), which leaves me no time for my actual work, especially considering I'm going to the symphony tonight. I'm looking forward to being out of school and getting a real job. I am skipping my upcoming high school reunion. All my my friends are breaking up with their long-term bfs. My radio show is going pretty well, and I record it as often as I can with the hopes of setting up my own website with like a podcast, as illegal as that is. I am playing Word Challenge less, which is a relief on my time demands (this was a word game on Facebook that I literally was addicted to; it didn't even bring me pleasure to do anymore because I had no more goals to achieve). My cats are still the light of my life, and there was a funny incident involving a squirrel, but if you're not a cat person, you wouldn't understand. They sleep under the covers with me more and more because my heater isn't set up properly (I have to take the thermostat apart and switch some wires around; pretty awesome of me, right?). I bake cookies pretty often. I've eaten so much sugar in the last few weeks that my face has broken out despite being on hormones. When my boyfriend was out of town, I removed 6 months' worth of recycling from his home and washed 6 loads of his laundry. I discovered the reason most of his clothes are on the floor is that there is no room in his closet or two dressers for all of them.
But now my next (and last for the day) student is coming in, so I have to pay attention to hypothesis tests and p-values and things.
