A little snow, A little (ha) homework


I was in the library for two hours just now, watching the snow POUR DOWN out of the sky. We must have gotten a good 4 or 5 inches while I was in there. Of course I had to take pictures when I got home.

The papers are still going strong! I think I may actually only have one ready for tomorrow's class, but that all depends on how tired I am tonight and how inclined to give up and go with the actual Dec. 16th due date. It would cut into my vacation for the first weekend (really, just revisions, how bad can it be?), but I might be willing to make that sacrifice so that I'm not feeling super rushed tonight and I can do a better job. I think I can e-mail it to the professor, or I can have one of my friends who will still be here next week print it out and take it to her inbox.
By the way, I just got back my grade for that presentation on The Acts of Thecla from my Dec. 2 Ancient Christianity Colloquium, and it's an A! The prof. gave me lots of fantastic feedback, including a few interesting questions I want to talk to her about some more in terms of my future research (ooh, I'm gaining a sense of direction!), so I'm super excited about taking her New Testament class next quarter. I'm also registered for a course on Theology and Spirituality in the Middle Ages, so hooray for studying more saints' lives. I'm sure you're all just loving this jabber about school. I would switch gears now and show you the knitting, except that'll be a project for next week when I'm finally home.

Good luck to all the rest of you students, and happy knitting to the rest!!!

Oh my goodness, that snow scene is incredible!! SO completely different from our 85 degree balmy weather right now! Hope you're managing to stay warm and dry. :-) Congratulations on your presentation!! That's fantastic!! And I'm so happy for you that you're almost done with your papers- yay!! Keep up the great work and take care! :-)

I think we got that snow here about 3 hours later. Everything is shut down today, which should be good incentive for me to stay home and work on my end of sememster papers. I'm also debating turning one in a bit late--we'll see how much I get done today. Good luck with your writing!

Umm... I like reading about school! I guess we can be nerds together. I would totally take that Middle Ages class with you if I was in Chicago. I had to skip out on the Hagiography this semester, but maybe in the future, I will get to do it. My problem with Religious history classes is that I want to take ALL of them. ;) Great news about the A!

Yea for snow! We didn't get as much as you though...

Good luck with the rest of the semester!
