There's a carpet of snow on the ground tonight - it fell swift and flurried all afternoon. I lost myself gazing out the window. Now the lamps cast long shadows into darkness, the flakes have melted off the branches, the snow is chopped up by enthusiastic 2 am snowball warriors. It will be icy tomorrow.
My sore throat is less painful today. Instead it has degraded into an annoying cough. I can hardly eat without the damn thing kicking in.
We had showcase for BLAST tonight. As always, I was blown away by the amount of character and talent everyone has. What energy and enthusiasm! The show this year is so, so strong. You should all be there, if for no other reason than to see me get tossed around in the air by Dyer, who is big :o) April 13, 14 and 15! Block it off your calendars, everyone.
Alright, well that's enough out of me. Mostly I just wanted to say how thankful I was for the companionship today. I hate how sometimes I'll be walking on campus, somewhere between a class, or Norris and suddenly I'll be struck with loneliness and longing. In the past I've always brushed it off, but lately I've been listening to it, because it's reminding me how important moments with friends are. And how I cannot treat them as the buffers in between the waves of work.
On a different note, I'm starting to get really tired of being woken up by my suitemates being loud at hours of the day after 3 am. For example, this morning it was 5:30 am. I mean.. come on now. That's just getting ridiculous.
