Things On My Mind Right Now, When I Really Should Be Sleeping:

1.) I got into Chapel Hill. This is good. This is excellent. But now I have to shove around a few of the precious free days I still have in April to try to go visit the campus before my three-week deadline ticks away and I have to commit to going SOMEWHERE.

2.) I still do not have a theme for my Spanish presentation, and it is a week from Thursday. Even worse, I am supposed to turn in my idea tomorrow. Ugh. I hate it when teachers say, "do it on anything you want," and then proceed to give you all sorts of guidelines as to what is 'entertaining' (read: worthy of a high grade) and what is not, as viewed through the eyes of a verbose, slightly hyperactive Spaniard.

3.) We have a swim meet at the University of Georgia on the 7th and 8th, which may very well be my last competition with this team, and I might not get to go because my French exam doesn't end until 12:30pm, events start at 5:30pm, and the drive is 6 hours. Hopefully my teacher can hook me up. Based on my grades so far, it's highly unlikely I'm going to screw up now.

4.) 3 weeks and 4 days until the Tampa swim, and I felt my shoulder again during practice today. Am I not done with that yet??? Also, I have to buy a million things before then, including PowerGel packs, zinc oxide, seasickness medication, and Maxim powder if I can find it.

5.) Tomorrow afternoon, I am going to have more homework than I know what to do with, mostly Latin translations.

6.) My frozen yogurt addiction is becoming dangerous and must end. Now.
