Once in Action, Always in Action

Okay, so here I am, one week older. What's happened since last we met? Well, the semester @ Purdue is winding down (only two-and-a-half weeks of spring semester left), and as expected, things are absolutely crazy. I have a fifteen-page paper and a test due by the nineteenth, a lab final on the twenty-seventh, and tests the first four days of finals. Needless to say, Red Bull and the library are about to become THIS man's best friends until it's all over.

And even after that, it STILL won't be happily ever after. I have three courses to take over the course of May through August, plus take the MCAT (think SAT for medical school), and keep working @ University Inn (my job for 10 months and counting). But right now, I'm just worried about keeping my sanity amidst this storm of parental units going on a "DANGER! DANGER! WILL ROBINSON!" bent.

Joanna, I realized that you and I haven't spoken on the phone since forever, but I want you to know that I do love you, now, forever, and always. I put a card in the mail this morning for you...should get there in a few days. Hopefully both of our lives will calm down in the next few weeks so we can get back to normal. Talk later, sweetheart. Love ya. Oh yah. One last thing - send me picture of you in those dresses (^_^).

Anyway, last time I promised more on my Spring Break Trip. Well, the first challenge was getting there - I left W.Lafayette @ about 6 in the evening, drove for about three hours until I ended up near Cincinnati (or was it Cleveland? I forget), stop for the night, get up the next morning for about 9 (I think) and then drive all day to reach Connecticut (in at 10 PM - was I ever glad to see theorygirl). Next day, we go to church, out to lunch with family (aunt & grandma come included), then back home to work for the rest of the day. As a side note, a piece of advice - NEVER work during Spring Break unless you HAVE to.

Monday was spent doing...something. I don't remember in particular. Tuesday we went to Mystic Aquarium and the shopping village right next door. Wednesday, however, was our big day. We went to Manhattan in NYC to go see a Broadway production - we wanted to see Curtains (with David Hyde Pierce of Frasier fame) - but the remaining tickets weren't to our liking, so we saw the Drowsy Chaperone (good comedy). Thursday we went to go see La Mirage (the place our wedding is supposed to happen) and went out to a local Italian place for dinner.

I was supposed to leave on Friday, but a snowstorm prevented that, so I spent the day doing whatever, and then left on Saturday morning, arriving back in W.Lafayette early Sunday afternoon. And THAT was MY Spring Break.

Well, I have to be running now - I have to go get dinner and prepare for a long night.
