Well, I made the extremely long drive to Michigan for the holidays. I actually did it over three days this time around. It started with a short drive to NH to visit my friend Josh, where he promptly took me out to dinner. It had been quite a while since I had been out for a nice steak dinner. Afterward I was able to give him his xmas present. And here it is on him:
I took my time getting to the Canadian border in NY, and finally got my car setup with EZpass before stopping near Buffalo at a Red Roof Inn. Hotels are kind of a guilty pleasure of mine. So I enjoyed it. But now, I've spent the past few days at my parents' house, and I'm going a bit stir crazy. The holidays will be here soon enough though. I just need some things to do. I will certainly enjoy the actual holidays, but right now I am yearning to be back at my own place. The tree looks nice though.

It's finally the end of the semester, and it has been a crazy few months. I dislocated my shoulder for the sixth time since my senior year of high school. I've been in and out of a relationship. I have met some brilliant new friends, and reconnected with some old ones. I have knit a lot and finished little. I've gotten braver in the kitchen. I voted for gay marriage in a second state and watched it fail. I have gone on real dates. I gathered 13 weeks worth of data. So was it a good or bad semester? I'm not really sure yet. It was exciting at least.
