You have got to be kidding me. It’s already November!? First semester of sophomore year is going way too fast. Where are the brakes on this thing?

In other news, the campus celebrated the most anticipated holiday of the year with much fanfare. Yes, the entire campus was bedecked in revelry for the most glorious holiday…the end of Daylight Saving Time. Oh, an extra hour of sleep is such a glorious luxury! Although, the sun set today at 4:30ish. When I left the library at 5:00 tonight, it was pitch dark.

Oh, yes. Halloween was also a lot of fun. Ashley was on duty, so we all stayed up until three o’clock in the morning watching scary movies. I was tricked into watching The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I really need to stop listening to my friends when they tell me that a horror movie is good. If I can say so, my group of friends had some really creative costumes. We always try to have a “be what you aren’t” theme. Ashley was an indie kid, Katie was Pluto, and one of my friends, Andrew, was a nudist on strike. I decided to dress up as white trash. It was really a hilarious night!

As much fun as this weekend was, this upcoming week isn’t really going to be that much fun. My study abroad application is due on Friday, as is my Medieval Lit. paper. The Oxford summer group is going to try to get back together for a dinner sometime this week. I’ve been talking with one of my friends who is currently abroad there, and our conversations have just cemented my desire to go back there for next year!

Oh, yes – a Classics plug. If you have the time, go and visit the following Web site . The Classics department has been working a palimpsest of one of Archimedes’s treatises, and it was finally published. Many of my friends worked on it, so I’m quite happy to see that they’ve been part of an influential accomplishment during their undergraduate careers!
