happy opening day

Red Sox! Baseball! Today!

The beginning of a new baseball season is a harbinger of spring, bringing hope, renewal, and... the end of school! In a few days, I'll be done with another term and can turn my attention back to the rest of the world, including wmtc.

Also in a few days - Tuesday at noon, but who's counting - I'll be finished with 75% of my degree, three of four years. I'm extremely restless and eager to finish. Since starting work as a library page, I'm working hours equivalent to a full-time job, plus school, and I'm really feeling it.

Some days I feel like I just can't do it anymore. But then I get some rest... and, as Jackson Browne said, get up and do it again, amen. Each semester is 13 weeks, and I figure I can take another 26 weeks of this.

Meanwhile... baseball! Today!

Yay! Too bad I will miss it. :(

One more year---wow! Good for you. I remember when you were just thinking about doing this, and now you are most of the way to completion. I know it is has been and will continue to be a lot of work and not always the most exciting work, but I hope when you are done, you will look back and know that you made the right decision.

Thank you, Amy. :)

I do feel I made the right decision. There are no guarantees in life, but I think this will work out well.

I'm sorry you can't watch the game with us today! Happy Passover and hope to see you on a gamethread asp.

Thanks, Laura. I may try to catch part of the game once I get home, but since I will also be cooking for tomorrow, I don't think I can also game thread, though if I can, I may jump in just to say,

GO SOX!
