"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

who else hates snow?

In case anyone was wondering, I still hate snow. Get ready for many more snow laments to come over the course of the winter. In fact, it seems as though we skipped Fall entirely and headed straight for winter. It's only October. It was warm up until it snowed, though complaining about snow is not the purpose of this post.
Edit: I started writing this post before I left this morning; before I saw what had happened while I was sleeping. This video accurately represents how I feel about that "annoying, icy, frozen water stuff" that is now all over the place.]

And I digress.
I finished my paper about
The Winter's Tale and will turn it in very soon. (Huzzah). Indeed, I'm happy I no longer have to worry about it. Time to move on to other papers now. Last night, at midnight, I registered for classes for next semester. It was an oddly liberating feeling because it was the last time I'm ever going to do that. That's right, folks. I am so close to graduating I can hardly stand it. The lucky classes that will round out my college career are as follows:
:: one final religion class ::
:: Contemporary Literary Criticism ::
:: Studies in Women's Literature ::
:: Classic American Detective Fiction ::
Sounds fun, no? The best part is that it's only eleven credit hours, so it'll feel like a breeze.

Sounds like a really fun semester. Still sorry about the snow. We had a toad frog strangle thunderstorm today and there is a tornado warning. Eek.

Gilmore Girls is priceless and I loved this clip.
I DO love the snow but this post reminded me of Freshman year when we would just hang out at your apartment and I can remember looking out onto the snow falling in the Wyview parking lot.
Good times. :)
That Classic American Detective Fiction class sounds amazing! Is it open enrollment?

I looked out the window this morning and I'm not lying, almost cried. But I really did yell about it a little.
Anddd I register shortly- nervous!
SOO excited to have you at water aerobics tomorrow :)

I guess if I lived in Utah, I might not be happy about your weather..but try 90 degrees at the end of October.
Seriously!!! And we had some of that thunderstorm action last night as well. Forecast: Cool and dry. huzzah!
And I remember that first text photo of the snow at Wyview your freshman year :)
Classes sound wonderful, and 11 credit hours even more wonderful!!
