Sorry it's been so long since I updated this last. Let's see, where did I leave off? Oh yeah, Rick and I went to Newport over spring break for a few days. It was really really nice. The weather was pretty good (sunny, which is more than can be said for now) and we had a good time relaxing and getting away. We took the bikes with us and just rode into town from our hotel. And on Palm Sunday we went to the tiniest Episcopal Church we'd ever been to. The people were super nice (almost clingy), which I partially attribute to their community and partially to the fact that Rick and I are a young couple and small churches especially get really excited about that. Anyway. School is definitely dragging me down right now. I have so much to do, which is the main reason I haven't updated this in a while. I have four papers due in four weeks. Luckily one is almost done (only another 3 page section to go and then revisions) and I've started researching another. I'm hoping to have two done by next week and then I'll have 3 weeks to do the other two. And Greek on top of all of that. Classes have just started to feel like they're getting in the way of doing the research I need to do, and I'm frustrated because all of this school work is keeping me from spending time with my friends, most of whom will be graduating with me in June. So that's a bummer. It's just very very very stressful right now, and I can feel it wearing on my system. and the weather is horrendous. Nor'easter and now just rainy and cold. It's oppressive. It's almost the end of April and spring still hasn't arrived! The bright side is that in a month I'll get to go home to visit the fam and school will be done for the semester. Blaine turns 1 in May, which is so unbelievable. It will be good to be home for a while...I'm hoping to be there for a week. I haven't seen anyone but my brother since December. They're all coming up for graduation which should be great. I'm excited about showing them Boston, etc. Other than that...I think I'm going to go to bed now. i spent about 3 or 4 hours today translating the rest of the first chapter in Xenophon's Symposium for tomorrow, and started some reading but I keep reading the same paragraph over and over again. So that means it's bedtime. Oh and stay tuned for great news about my brother...I don't know if it's officially public yet, so I can't announce it, but once it is I'll let you know! Hope things are calmer your way, wherever you may be.
