Ike may have brought a lot of destruction and grief to central Ohio, but it also brought fall weather. This morning when I went out to walk the dog I could see my breath, which is wonderful to me. It makes me think of home (Northern Minnesota). I just wish that I had more time to go out and enjoy it. I could just sit outside in the cool weather forever.
Some readers have wondered how I manage to post about things like football and squirrels and weather when the exam is so close and I am so stressed. It is simply, this blog is both an outlet for me to express my stress, and also at times a procrastination tool. When you see a post like this one - seeming unconcern in the face of a huge task (i.e. my written major exam tomorrow), it means I am procrastinating, distracting myself from thinking about the stressor, for better or worse. Today, it is probably for the worse, because I need to be getting studying for the minor exam out of the way.
I do not plan to post again until Friday afternoon or evening (when my written major exam is over). Wish me luck!!
