I know I'm a little nerd-tron, but I really loved having Monday classes today! We had make-ups for International Criminal Law, because Gerry's going to have to be on leave this summer term. While I didn't appreciate the 9 am start and 6 pm finish, I just feel like I've gotten the week off to a really, really good start. I liked having something that made me boot my butt out of bed so early. Then again, I might be liking the novelty of it all and would be a very unhappy camper if I had 9am Monday classes every week. Apologies to those of you who have real jobs that start much earlier on Monday mornings!
Tomorrow's Sine Die in the Indiana General Assembly! That concept just always excites me.
The line-ups are out (or just came to my attention, anyway) for the Irish Fests this year and I'm really, really sad that I'm going to miss them. But, it's really expensive to fly to the States in the middle of summer and I'm looking at a November trip, to visit my grandma, be there for Duchie's birthday and see the Blacks! My godfather doesn't talk on the phone and it is likely to be the first time I've spoken with him since I left in September. It also makes sense to go while my visa's still valid and I haven't officially graduated. It's very close to actual graduation, but it would be nice to be home for Thanksgiving and I'm fairly certain that my grandmother won't make it over for the ceremony. Or, I could think about flying home for Christmas and take all my stuff with me: then, I can travel to somewhere else without all my stuff. Actually, that's not the worst idea ever. This would all make so much more sense if I knew what I was doing next! Spain? Peace Corps? ACK!
Finally, I went to the National for the first time in absolute AGES today to do reading on my dissertation. We've got a proposal due this Thursday and I'm still trying to figure out what I'm writing about. It's complicated. I'm going to go read my pirate book. ARRRGH, Matey!
