finals. nor’easter. sigh.

Tonight is going to be an all-nighter. Sigh. It’s that time of the year when massive amounts of caffeine and sugar get ingested and I seclude myself in my room and my room turns into an absolute mess. Oh yes, it’s finals time. No exams of course, just papers. And a presentation tomorrow … er, in nine hours. I kind of feel disgusting right now. A few days ago the weather was really warm, then cold, then kind of nice. Today my room once again turned into a sauna, because outside it’s cold and rainy and the heater (which I cannot control) only has two options: off or full blast. Apparently there’s this thing called the “Nor’easter storm” which is a type of storm that affects this area, which is causing the frigid rain outside and thus this tropical ecosystem in my room. Sigh.

Last month when I went to Boston over spring break, I visited the New England Aquarium. The jellyfish were so pretty. And so peaceful-looking. And definitely not dying of stress or heat. Sigh.

back from boston

A few days ago I took a trip to Boston with roomie D and it was a doozy. Boston was fun, but it’s nice to be back in the city. Anyway, there were a whole host of tourist attractions that had to be seen, so we definitely did the Freedom Trail and saw all those places. One of the places I was most excited to see was the Old North Church, where two lanterns were hung to warn the patriots of the British troops’ arrival by sea (“One if by land, and two if by sea”). Ah yes, the American Revolution was always my favorite war to study in school. The picture is of a chandelier hanging in the church.
