b/g - in the library

(no subject)

It's over.  The belief that I can do math unaided.   I had faint hope - but it was dashed today. [ side note - dashed was not in my online dictionary... it is now, but how weird is that? ]

On the up side, apparently I'm not half bad at this lit/language stuff.  Thank god.  Otherwise I would have had to drop this whole academic endeavor (and give up my pretensions to some kind of brainy-ness).

I drove outside Austin today for the first time.  Of course it was for the GRE so I didn't really get to look around San Antonio.  But hey, I made it outside of the city!  San Antonio looks like every other major city that has freeways. I didn't drive through any of the pretty parts, or so I've been given to understand.   Luckily I had a fantastic phone conversation with D. on my way back when I got stuck in bumper to bumper traffic.  Had a belated breakfast once I got there and generally ignored most of my scholastic duties until 8ish, when I assembled my packets for Grad School references.  It's all beginning.  GAH!
