I promise I remember I have a blog

What is it my Dad always says? Winners don't make excuses? Well, I'm going to anyway. I haven't blogged lately because 1) my camera is broken so I can't get pictures up, 2) it's been a busy semester, but I've been procrastinating, and 3) I've been waiting on replies from grad schools. See? 3 decent excuses. If I had to write a paper about it, I could.

So I'll get the boring part of my update done first. As of this morning, I haven't heard back from any grad school. I'm hoping that this is a good thing because they weed out the ones the definitely don't want first, right? Well, whatever happens there, I'll be sure to let you know when I find out.

School is going well, but I'm struggling to stay motivated. Last semester, I was working towards grad school and this semester I feel like I'm biding my time until graduation. Not the best attitude for getting homework done. But don't worry, I'm trying to buckle down and I've even managed to get an A on one of my many Spanish tests.

In social/entertainment news, I watched Leap Year last night and I think I've found my new favorite movie. London movie nights have turned into dollar movie nights (we watched all the movies we owned). Last week was Princess and the Frog which was good, but I was seriously laughing out loud during Leap Year. Let me list all the reasons I loved it:
lovely Irish landscapes
an even lovelier Irish romantic lead
hilarious scenes of Amy Adams falling
Amy Adams slipping down a hill that reminded me of our climbing adventures in Scotland
cheeky dialogue
an anti-materialistic message
and a way cute ending
Yep that's it and it didn't hurt that I was sitting next to Ashley who laughs at my reactions to movies and then I laugh at her for doing the same thing.

Well, that's it for now. Au Revoir! (or should I say Adios now?)

I'm praying for a speedy graduation too. Sooooo hard to keep up the motivation.

...And at least we both have a place to be in the fall :)
