The first of the last days of winter

The icicles are melting in Indiana, Pennsylvania. Do you know what that means?

Spring is coming.

The sun is getting brighter. The little grasses are wiggling around under the mounds of slush and ice. The snow is melting enough to reveal the dogshit that people left there in January. Pretty soon I'll be starting the slow process of stripping off layers of necessary clothing, till I can head off to campus in a tank top. I might just make it through the semester.

And weirdly, I think that Dr. Zens' classes help combat the evil of winter. They're informative, useful, fun, relatively easy, and involve random tangent storytime at least once a week. Best classes ever. (And what am I taking now? Environmental history? Why did I think that was a good idea?)

Holy Shitbuckets, THAT'D BE SWEET! HEYEHEYHEY, can you have guests in your dorm room? Cuz having (1) serious hang-out time and (2) not shelling out $90 for a hostel WOULD BE AMAZING. We'd have SO MUCH FUN.

Hey, you should come at least for the actual awards ceremony. (It's not really a con, but the weekend-long event centered on the awards ceremony.) IT'LL BE SWEET AND THERE WILL BE FAMOUS PEOPLE THERE.
