I have officially finished my work for fall quarter. I am not "done," however, since I have to produce that annotated bibliography for the first week back in class. 

I am proud to say I already got one of my grades back for the two classes I took, and it was an A. Hurrah...I felt worse about that paper than the other one I wrote, so hopefully that bodes well for the other class. Unfortunately, the professor who grades that paper did not produce a grade for my previous class with him until May, and I took the class in fall quarter. I hope he does not repeat that pattern again. Maybe he won't since I am going to work with him as my thesis advisor this year. 

I am irritated about people not shoveling their sidewalks. Unless the weather is truly heinous, I try to get out on a walk with my kid every day, but today was truly a challenge. There were several stretches where it was a job just to keep moving forward and remain upright, since there was several inches of mushy slush underfoot. At least it made it more of a workout since I couldn't stay out as long as normal due to the cold. I feel bad for the baby sometimes in that sort of weather, though I hardly ever hear any complaints. I have a giant, adorable fleecy snowsuit for the babe that keeps everything as toasty as possible. 

The other irritating thing is when people shovel their sidewalk, but leave a thin layer of snow that nearly instantly forms a sheet of impossibly slippery ice. That, to me, is WORSE than not shoveling at all. Sigh.

Soon I will produce as a Christmas present for my 3 readers: a top ten list of the worst Christmas song performances of all time. I am a self-proclaimed music nerd, and I am particular about my Christmas music in particular, so I am offended when good songs are murdered. I shall do my best to provide links to listen to the crappy carols if you feel like having a good ear-bleed.

So, until next time!
