descent into the maelstrom
The beginning of each semester, especially with new improved glitches, is always rife with chaos, but there's a potentially swank medieval history class for the lunchbreak, and the people I housesit for leave me ample provisions along with pay for watching the Jungle Puppy and the two cats and I've got a ticket for Opeth and Katatonia in May. Reading at least two or three books a week, sleeping a little more, hitting up the art studio more frequently and trying to walk and shake the cabin fever. Snow's so much easier than cold and rainy.
