Congratulations to Eric and Tina on their lovely wedding and reception last Saturday. I was honored to be a groomsman, and I’m very happy for them. I’m also quite jealous of their Hawaiian honeymoon.

On a more selfish note, it was not a very good weekend for them to get married. I had a bio midterm on Thursday, a physics midterm on Friday, and an organic midterm on Monday. So far, so good — I did very well on the first two. I’ll hopefully know how well I did in organic tomorrow. It was definitely my hardest exam so far, and I barely had one day to prepare for it; on top of that, I fell behind in the two weeks leading up to the test. While I answered everything, I’m not certain that I got it at all correct. I was planning to goof off until next Monday, since Thanksgiving is cutting the week short. The problem is that I would then be starting next week behind again. The result: I’m probably headed to school early tomorrow so that I don’t have an insurmountable pile of work on Monday. We’ll see how I feel about it in the morning.

I’m looking forward to the break. We’re all tired, and finals are only a couple of weeks away. On top of that, I’d like some time to introspect and evaluate. It’s easy to get caught up in the daily affairs of life, and the big picture sometimes gets a little cloudy. Expect some more musings in the near future. Possible topics: Career direction, academic stamina, the conflicts of ambition and personal commitment.

(Side note: My writing style tonight is terse and clippy, Hemingway-esque. Interesting.)
