Sorry that I haven't written in a while; last week was busy. I had an essay due today, and I was working on it a bit obsessively. But what is truly rare about this essay is that I not only want to do well on it because I want to do well in the class, but I genuinely love the subject matter and I had to stop myself from writing through the night sometimes. I would skip other homework because I wanted to write the essay. The class is parasitology, and the essay was an examination of parasitism. It was sort of trying to define it, which is harder than you may think. I won't bore you with the details, but suffice to say I really enjoyed writing it and I am quite pleased with it.
Now on to other topics!
On my birthday three years ago I went to school with a grocery bag full of little plastic party favors; you know, just little monsters and finger puppets and the like. I spent the whole day giving them out to my friends. At one point I handed one to my friend N and he looked at me a bit strangely and asked me why he was getting something if it was my birthday? I didn't really have a good answer for him, and I still don't.
I suppose maybe it's that I like all the people around me to be happy, because it makes the air hum. That's a possible explanation. But I also like to give people gifts. I like to see their faces light up, I guess. I don't know; yeah, it's stupid. Sorry.
But it's the truth...
So anyway, in lieu of my birthday (which is tomorrow, btw), I'd like to wish you all a wonderful day. And I'd like to thank you all for reading my blog. It brightens my day whenever I have comments (which hasn't happened now in a while, aHem) and I love to know that I'm reaching someone. So: have a wonderful day, do something fun, and come back and tell me what your day was like! Thanks, y'all!
