I proposed to the most wonderful girl in the world today and she did me the great favor of not just skating off.  :)  Yay!

I just want to chronicle my last week, so that I can look back and marvel at the fact that I've survived it.

Last Friday was hockey, 8-1 win.  Drinking afterwards.

Saturday was Will's housewarming party, followed by Mary's birthday party, at which I was up till 6 AM.  Managed to get a rugburn during said party.  Probably in a battle for a glowstick (which I won).

Sunday was a practice LSAT, at which I was still slightly hungover.  Still dominated it.

Sunday night I had to read 120 pages and watch a 20 min documentary and then write a 5 page paper on said stuff.  Did pretty well.  Only got 3 hours of sleep.

Monday I had class and work and then wrote a 5 page paper on Machiavelli's The Prince.  Dominated that too.  Got 2 hours of sleep that night.

Tuesday I had class and work.  Possible finger fracture at work.  Slept for 9 hours afterwards.

Wednesday I had class and work and then studied for my test.  Got 4 hours of sleep.

Thursday I woke up really early to read for my second class.  Managed to slip off my bike pedal and severely cut up the back of my leg. Took the test, did okay, went to my other class, went to work, and came home and studied for another test. Got 4 hours of sleep.

Friday I woke up at 8:30 AM to get to work to do a training session on the new projectors I will be fixing.  Left that to take a test and go to class.  Did pretty well on that test.  Found out that Eugene's lease app didn't go through.  Dealt with that and the electric for the new apartment.  Went back to work for a couple hours.  Went and signed my lease and got my keys.

Tonight (Friday night) is hockey.  Good times.

Tomorrow I'm flying to Alabama.

Sunday, Eugene and I are moving him back to Texas (hooray!).

Wow.  What a stressful week.  And yet I've been in a pretty good mood and I've handled all of it pretty well.  I feel like a real adult now.  I'm doing what needs to be done and I'm not sleeping through classes anymore.  Now I just need to find someone to take over my old lease.

Naptime now, then packing for the weekend, then hockey.

What a great game.  Congrats to the Penguins.  The Stanley Cup Finals are more intense than anything in any other sport.  Unbelievable game.  I miss the days when that was the Stars.

I just noticed that I hadn't updated in quite some time, so I just figured I would give anyone interested a quick rundown of my life as of now.

I'm quite thoroughly in love with a wonderful girl named Elise.
I'm a political science major, and I'm planning to get my PhD and teach political theory.
I work for the school doing A/V stuff, and the job's got its problems, but is pretty much okay.
I started playing hockey in November and am the goalie for a team including my brother and a couple of my best friends and am doing pretty well at it, as well as enjoying it more than just about anything else I've ever done.
I'm currently on vacation with my family in south Florida and am quite enjoying it, though I miss my Elise.

That's pretty much the summary.  More to follow if I feel like it, though chances are I won't.

My Grandmother died early this morning from complications due to advanced Alzheimer's.  Basically, her body finally forgot how to breathe.  She'd been in bad shape for quite some time, so we've known this was coming, and it's really for the best.  She's with God now.  She was a wonderful woman, and she will be missed by many.  I just wanted to ask those of you so inclined to pray for her soul.

I can only hope to one day have enough money to do something this cool: http://www.wired.com/techbiz/people/magazine/16-10/ff_walker?currentPage=all

That room is my life's dream.

I didn't think it could snow this much in Texas.  I bet it hasn't snowed this much here in recorded human history.  There's currently seven inches of snow on the ground, and it's still snowing hard.  Freaking crazy.
