Yes, I am still here
I suppose I should write in here, as it's been a while. I don't have much time, though. New episodes of West Wing air tonight - I think they're showing two? It'll be strange to see Leo, as his actor is the one who died in December.
The last couple of days have been a strange blur. Working, though my last day will be tomorrow. I had meant for it to be Thursday, but the schedule just worked out that tomorrow's my last day. I am okay with this. I also decided to reread the 5th and 6th Harry Potter books. I'm about 1/4 through the 6th, having started it this afternoon. Those books are dangerous, I swear it. You pick one up and without meaning to, you lose yourself for an hour and a half until, a hundred pages later, you look up and realize that you had meant to get some things done in that time. Oh, well.
I do appreciate J.K. Rowling's writing style. Whenever I read those books, I feel as though my grammar improves, or maybe my sentence structure. Her characters and descriptions are always so intelligent. Of course, a Harry Potter reread wouldn't be complete without my raising questions. I've marked quite a few passages (mostly from book 5), though, and expect to write in my LiveJournal about it at some point. Rereading book 6 is quite fun now. It disappointed me because it wasn't what I expected at all, but now that I already know what to expect, it is a more pleasant read.
Ryan has leant me the first two seasons of Battlestar Galactica. After starting just Friday evening, I am already 1/6 through season 2. That show is so good! I love Apollo, holy crap. I need a new background image for my laptop when I get back to school. He is (so) hot.
I rarely spend any time on the Internet, because, as you all know, I find this computer and its Internet connection frustratingly slow and irritating. When I go back to school, I'd like to spend a bit more time online than I'm doing right now - maybe once per day, but I'd really like to cut myself off from it. I spend way too much time on it, and if I have that much free time, I could spend it studying (I sound like my mother) or reading the mountains of unread books I own or writing or even watching anime. So, I guess I can add that as a 14th resolution for the New Year.
Anyway, I should probably go. Kristy is dog-sitting for Chad's family and we should probably figure out how to set up the TiVo so that Chad can watch the episodes when he comes back.
I have very much enjoyed this break from school, and I feel I've accomplished a lot. However, I'm not really dreading going back to school. I miss my friends and I'm very excited about all of my classes (no science this semester - 2 poli sci and 2 English, yes!).

I just remembered that we didn't go get my Christmas present from your house last night. Do you want to just save it for my birthday?
Well if you're going to be a snot about it, MAYBE I'LL JUST KEEP IT, >O
