Well, on the upside, I started.

My oh my.  Why is it that time seems to go so much faster when you have so much more to do?  Like, I feel like it was Monday morning, then I blinked and BAM! It's after 8:30 pm on Wednesday night.

This stupid paper is taunting me.  I'm pretty sure I can hear it.

On the plus side, I at least have some words, and past experience tells me that it's always easier once I get going. 

But still.

There's approximately 42 hours until I have to have this complete.  And that makes me nervous.

Thank you God for the fact that I will have NOTHING to do tomorrow night except this paper.  I hope Ryann's not mad that I can't go to her game tomorrow.  It'll be the first home game that I haven't been to, aside from the one that was during Fall Break.  She seemed irritated when I told her I wasn't sure if it was possible, but maybe she was just tired.  I don't know, I don't exactly have a choice here.

I'm excited though because next Saturday is the game the team is playing against the one other team they're competing against for #1 in the conference.  Mom is coming up for it because a) she loves soccer and b) she likes Ryann.  Ryann said afterwards there's this big barbecue cookout tailgate type thing that we're welcome to come to with her.  It's gonna be so much fun.  Mom will probably spend the night in my dorm again just to get a break.  :)

Speaking of Mom, yesterday was her birthday, and I'm so glad to know she had a really good day!  She treated herself to a mani-pedi and even better, which I know is hard to say because few things in life are as awesome a birthday treat as a mani-pedi but it's true, Holly surprised her and went home for the night. :D  I'm thrilled that Holly did that for her.  The least that amazing woman deserves is to have a good birthday.

I'm also really looking forward to the 125th Anniversary Ball on Friday.  Amy's gonna be my date and after I get out of a required-by-my-English-professor viewing of Twelfth Night, she's gonna come over and help me get ready.  I'll be sure to take some pics so y'all can see my amazing dress.  It's gonna be great to have a night to get all dressed up and pretty and go to my first "adult" black-tie event.

Maybe if I close my eyes and just wish really hard, I'll open my eyes and it'll suddenly be Friday night and I won't have to worry about this paper anymore. ;)


  1. Friday sounds fun! Tomorrow night I'm going to this fancy dinner party for work at a swanky county club on the Main Line. It's the annual Domestic Violence Awareness dinner, so there are lots of political figures and local celebrities coming. I have been thinking about my outfit for days! :) It's fun to do things like that once in a while! Definitely take pics!

  2. Hope the paper goes well! Praying for you. :)
