School

School has been being more interesting, and slightly less depressing than it could have been. I've adapted, and I think I'm over my case of the blues. Extra credit on failed Combinatorics homework assignments helps a lot.

Work

Lots of interesting stuff going on in the possible summer job front.

Life

Lots of interesting stuff has gone on. Let's see. Last week was sorta bad, but I figured I would make up for it with the weekend. No such luck -- while walking to supper I slipped, fell, and sprained my right ankle quite badly. Hiking boots that only decide to have traction halfway down aren't very useful. So the rubber band is now all stretched out, and I can't put pressure on the ball of my foot without shooting pains up the Achilles tendon. Nurse Bob says that I've been very sensible about the whole thing and shouldn't suffer any permanent damage, so it's all good.
Let's see. On the girl front, not much. My friend thinks that a girl in my Econ of Gender class has a crush on me. Sadly, she's not the right girl in my Econ of Gender -- I'm currently interested in Emilia. Communicating that interest is proving somewhat entertaining, but I'm trying. I keep getting distracted by her eyes. And smile. And sense of humor -- it's hard to ask someone out when you're cracking up. Pity I can't really ask her dancing now. Meh. Isn't it funny how that kind of thing works? The one with a crush on me seems nice enough, just not really my type.
Other than that, my dad should be calling for a nice uninterrupted talk, so that should be good, provided that I actually manage to wake up. We've got some stuff to discuss, mostly about finances and medical insurance and stuff like that.
I accidentally offended Katrina with a email mean t to be a simple joke. It seems I'm destined to constantly screw up there. I keep trying, though. The road to hell and whatnot...
