Anyway, so... news:
1.) I'm going home for Thanksgiving after all ... my aunt and uncle are driving down from South Carolina on Wednesday morning, so I'm driving to their house Tuesday night and hitching a ride with them the rest of the way. It feels weird to be going home, but I'm excited, too.
2.) I've been running 4-5 days a week for about a month now, training for the half marathon, and was sort of half-hoping that all that effort might, as a side benefit, make me drop a couple of pounds. Instead, I have just had my conclusion reaffirmed: that I gain muscle mass with a vengeance that would make a wrestler jealous. The numbers on the scale are exactly the same - a little higher, even - and yet I've gotten a number of comments in the past week about how huge my calves are. And, sure enough, I tried to wear my boots out to dinner the other day and couldn't zip them up all the way. *shakes head* Ridiculous. I don't exactly mind, but still... ridiculous.
3.) The Josh Groban concert ticket presale starts tomorrow at 10am... believe me, you'll hear about it one way or the other, be it in ecstasy or anger.
4.) 13 more school days... and a 15-page paper, an 8-page paper, a 5-page paper, and 3 final exams.
I feel like there was more I wanted to say, but now I can't remember......
