My poor computer has been experiencing terrible fits of uselessness--freezing up every thirty seconds, shutting down, and various other temper tantrums of the sort, and I've been going a bit crazy. But today, I write.
Have been more diligent with the studies, as the end of the semester nears--speaking with teachers, finishing up research, actually cracking a book every once in a while. Took a break last night, however, to go to a restaurant in the German Colony with a bunch of people to say goodbye to Helen, who (sigh) leaves on Friday. Ksenia and Luise, praise God, got their scholarships, so they'll be here next year...but Helen was only here for a year to begin with. So sad goodbye.
Anyway, back to work.
