I read, write, code, and knit.

Shortened weeks are killer. Yes, four-day weekends are awesome. But right now, right before midterm, at a critical juncture? :/ The thesis for my history ISU is due this Thursday. I've sort of got a thesis down, but I'd really feel more comfortable handing it in if I had some solid research to support it before I get in too deep. Unfortunately, I worked tonight and I'm working tomorrow. On the days that I work, I get home at about 8, and I'm too tired for serious work (like research). Methinks I'll just word my thesis very convincingly and then do as much research as I can on the weekend. I'm blogging instead of reading about Locke and Hobbes right now. :D

On the up side, the first six of the books I ordered from Chapters came in--The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher. I've been watching the Sci-Fi Channel series based on the novels, so I want to read the novels, since they sound pretty interesting.

Anyway, back to history. Thanks for taking the time to read about my laziness! :)
