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! :)

About this site

I started coding websites, in bad HTML on Geocities, in 2004 in a fit of whimsy. Since then I’ve learned PHP/MySQL, coded my own blog software, and rebuilt this site several times. With the exception of the blog, it’s currently running on the exquisite Symphony CMS. This website is hosted by HawkHost
