8/19 - Get paid. Swim at Cecil, dinner at Town Center with Anna, Nika, and Hayley. Buy my Philosophy Pumpkin Pie 3-in-1 stuff at Sephora. Also, Catie moves to FSU. (Oh, the shame!)

8/21 - 9:00 open-water swim practice. Possible second Ichetucknee trip with Shannon, etc. to make like UF varsity and swim against the current. Probable trip to Moe's with Greg (co-worker), who wants to buy me my last Moo Moo Mr. Cow.

8/23 - Get shortest haircut of entire life. Lie in dentist's chair for two hours and promise to floss
8/24 - 12:47, fly out of Jacksonville International Airport.
Anyway, I finished the Yale application this morning, so now the only two schools left are Harvard and Brown, who are dragging their feet. I don't actually particularly want to go to Harvard (I'm holding out for Yale and Georgetown), but it'd be nice to have the acceptance letter and bragging rights. Although I don't think I'm actually too likely to get in - my GREs are 630 verbal (88%), 720 math (72%), 5.5 writing (86%), which is certainly not bad, but not fabulous either. I just retook it this morning and did even worse (ran out of time) so I guess I'll be sticking with those May scores. I usually top out standardized tests, so this is sort of a kick in the ego. *cries*
People who rock: Yale Tech Support (for resolving my issue literally within 20 minutes), my grandmother (who gave me a check for $1000), Martin's new girlfriend Jolanda (for lending me a pre-paid phone for 4 months in NL), and Richard (who gave me an aluminum Trek bike, for free! Granted, it needs some new parts, but it's an aluminum Trek!)
"Th-th-th-that's all, folks!"
