Why after almost 4 weeks of being back in the states is my sleep still messed up? My theory is it takes me as long as I've been away to get readjusted. So I should be re-adjusted by now, since its been 3 and a half weeks since I got home from England. And I was there for that long. I think my brain keeps me up, especially if I'm worried or nervous. Anyway.

Very busy day today, I missed Post-Colonial Literature because I was at the county courthouse observing a trial to do an article on it. Its due tomorrow, fun. The plan was for me to do it yesterday, but I got lost so by the time I got there I thought I was too late to go in. Ah. So I had to be there at 1:30 today. Lucky really, because a girl from my class also came into that courtroom to observe. So after the trial ended, around 3:30, we went to look up the criminal record of one of the inmates who was on trial for violation of probation. Of course the only interesting case was at the end. So I have to write that article for 5pm tomorrow, did some background research tonight but think I'll take it easy tonight. Long day.

I sent out Pete's Valentines package on Monday, costs me a ton but he's worth it ;) He sent out mine yesterday so hopefully we'll get them at the same time. In two days it will be 5 years since we met in person for the first time! Can't believe it was that long ago, and at the same time it seems like so much longer! Well that's about it, I should go read Rushdie.

Hello Lizzy!!

Juls, thanks so much for thinking of my sister and for sympathizing with my 4 hour class. those long classes are the DEVIL. But someone brought pizza so it wasn't so bad. I'm just tired and I hate it that Dennis is always asleep when I come home. Anyway, I hope you have a good friday. I have Dennis' V-Day gift all ready too but I know he hasn't picked anything up for me yet LOL :P Hugs, Erin
