i've been awol

and i know it. but things got nuts after my splendid birthday party - or rather starting then - and i'm a busy girl. tomorrow is like a haven - my one class has been cancelled, and i'm not going to set my alarm and i'm going to take a dear friend formal dress shopping and i'm going to work on a paper and we have a volleyball game (of course).

thankfully, we did better at today's game. much better, in fact. we almost won! it was kinda trippy.

i have five papers to write before the end of the term, and a trip to st louis and thanksgiving in between now and then. it's kinda intense.

things are looking not only up, but downright ducky.
