I just had to take a quick break from the continued torture which is my Data Analysis Essay. I’ve been actively writing/avoiding writing it for over a week now. I’m pretty close to being done though. I’m got all three data sets either graphed or tabulated, and I’ve written 2,038 of the 3,000 words describing in minute detail everything I did and why I did it. That’s part of why I’ve hated doing this. I don’t really mind putting things into the graphs and everything. At least the math parts are pretty basic. No, what bothers me is having to go back and quantify all those tiny little decisions that you make in trying to make things look nice or understandable. Then there’s the fact that I’m not entirely sure I’m doing any of it right in the first place (which makes you sound really stupid when trying to justify it) . . .
So insomnia struck again last night. Third time this week. I think I finally passed out at about 6:30 am. I would say congratulations (<–I've never been able to spell that word. It looks wrong, but I'm too lazy to go spell it on Word to find out) to me, but the end result is that I slept until about 2:30, 3:00. Which means that even if the insomnia doesn't get me tonight, my out-of-synch sleep cycle will. That's not too bad now I guess, since I don't have to go to classes anymore, it can still just be damned inconvienient at times!
On the happy side of things, Meggers is coming to visit soon! Yayyyy! I have NO idea what we're going to do for a week, but I'm sure we'll figure something out. I can almost guarantee that it will involve Edinburgh and movies though. And the renting of Mulan. Inside joke, don't ask. So anyway, hurry up Meggan! I'm so bored over here! Entertain me.
Almost forgot! You guys need to ALL go and check out the latest SIK Enterprises original website. It's Nate's new yet improved music page at: www.nateandamy.com/nate/. Not only can you find out all about Nate and his music, but you can also download clips of all his songs and even order a P-CD (a Personalized CD with your choice of songs, title, and even album cover!). And if you’re curious, pretty soon there will be information on Amy’s and Nate’s wedding under the, yup, you guessed it, wedding section. To just kinda explore, go to www.nateandamy.com.
I guess that’s probably enough of a break. Why did I go to grad school again?

There’s a magical feeling so right
