So... hmm. Life is good. =)

Let's see.

My grandmother (father's mother) died at the ripe old age of 92, 93, or 94, depending on who you asked and when you asked. She was... quite a character, to say the least. Learned more about my fascinating family history, which apparently is more scandalous than I thought - and that's saying a fair bit.

Social activity's been up as well. The experiment is proceeding quite satisfactorily - I have actually managed to be sort-of out for some six Saturdays in a row now, which is a major breakthrough for a certified geek such as myself. ;) I got somewhat claustrophobic, however, as this Saturday involved a gazillion relatives packed into a small room...

On the plus side, several friends dropped by. =) That was really nice.

Updates for the New Year. Oh, right, last New Year I got dragged off to Daet and Legaspi for a vacation. It was actually pretty okay, once I'd gotten over the shock of having a completely unplanned vacation (we had to buy clothes one day at a time!). It took me a while to get over that shock, though. I was, like, "I want to be home!"

I did sort of learn how to... Well, not surf. More like hang on blindly to a board while desperately trying to keep my balance.

Love life still non-existent - Mom, am I even allowed to have a love life before I get a PhD? - but friendships looking up. =) You know who you are. Suffice to say that I feel really, really lucky to have such friends.

And I have a grand total of 22 pages - 10 on Plato, 12 on Aristotle - to write before Monday next week or I will get royally chewed out by one of our most temperamental teachers. Rumor has it that he doesn't read papers all that closely, but still. So I will be pretty much invisible for the next few whatevers.

More stories to tell, but not enough time - I promised to sleep early tonight (if 11 can be called early), and the dark shadows underneath my eyes have started to get really noticeable.

Life is good.
