There's light at the end of the tunnel. Spanish oral? Done. Creative writing portfolio in all its facets? Done. Linguistics paper? Done, assuming Sergey doesn't notice that I only have 2654 words when I'm supposed to have 3000. I've said everything I needed to say, and I'm almost following the 'ten percent above or below' target rule... so I don't think it's going to get much longer. I'll just fudge the word count a bit.

I also bought postcards for Flat Stanley yesterday - one 'springy', of the tulips, one 'summery', of a windmill with water and blue sky and green grass, one 'wintery', of a foggy early-morning pink-purple sunrise by a row of windmills, and one of Utrecht, with the Dom in the middle. It's really neat to look closely at that card, because I can see a lot of the streets that I know so well... even one of the buildings where I used to have class.

My hair is also becoming so long and flat and mullet-like and annoying that I am resorting to wearing a corduroy hat much of the time. I am not a hat person, but this one I seem to be able to wear without looking like a Muppet. I even got complimented on it yesterday. (By Trung, though, so who knows if that can be counted as a genuine compliment... LOL.)

Off to class now. (Only 6 more days of classes! Yippee!)
