I took the long way between classes today. I wanted to see people I knew, and the more people I walk past, the more chance I have to run into them. I'd say it's chilly out, but really it's about 65, so I don't think that would fly. Wearing jeans and a t-shirt, I wished for a half-sleeve.

I feel like a student this semester. I'm a week in, and I haven't skipped a class. You would think that's not an accomplishment, but then you wouldn't know me.
