I know, I know. It seems as though I'm always taking long vacations from this blog, lately. But with homework lurking around every corner and a million other things to do, I just can't seem to find the time to write! I decided to start exercising again, although it seems like I don't really have much time for that, either. The addition of a guy to my life makes everything that was already hectic even more difficult to deal with, although I guess I'd prefer him in my life than out of it. Anyway, rant over. Just wanted to offer up some explanation. Today, I'd just like to mention a few things before I go translate some Hungarian: 1. Heroes: Season 4 premieres tonight at 9pm on NBC! 2. It's Groundhog Day today -- will Phil the groundhog see his shadow? I hope not, because that would mean an early spring! (Although, how much stock should we put in whether an animal sees its shadow or not?) 3. Friday, February 6th, there is a poetry reading at 7:30 pm at the Barnes and Nobles on Sixth Avenue and Eighth Street (I hope I remembered my AP Style for that address!) -- feel free to drop by and read some of your own work, or just listen in to other people doing their thing! 4. With the approach of Valentine's Day, everyone (including me) is wondering what to get others for the holiday -- whether its for your significant other, your parents, your kids, or just your best friend. I'm trying to think of some nontraditional gifts this year, so any ideas would be helpful. When I think of some, I'll write up a post about it. And don't worry about being single on Valentine's Day -- I always liked being single better because it took away all of the pressure to get the right thing for your boyfriend or girlfriend. Instead, find someone else to give candy or a thoughtful card to; I bet they'll appreciate it! And who knows, maybe you'll be surprised and get a Valentine too!
