A cornicopia of projects to complete

I love being home for Thanksgiving.

Hal and Layla and I rolled into my parents' driveway at about 6:30 yesterday, toting clothes, Layla's crate, and my mass of homework I need to accomplish over this long, supposedly relaxing, weekend.

On the agenda for me is 167 3-4 page "research" papers on celebrity journalism. I'm going to try to do 20-30 a day, which will allow me to have a good chunk done when I go back to school and all craziness erupts.

Also on the agenda is my theory paper, which is due on Wednesday, exactly one week from now. Oh dear, that's very soon. I'm going to try not to think about it until Friday so I can enjoy eating lots of food tomorrow. I also have a presentation on my theory paper on Wednesday of next week. Following that, I have my law paper due on Monday, Dec. 3. Then I have my methods paper due Tuesday, Dec 10. But I have a presentation on that paper on Dec. 4. It's going to be so much fun for the last couple weeks of school!

Anyway, I also made a pilgrimage to the haircutters. I love getting my hair cut, but I haven't wanted to find a new place in Bloomington. So I usually try to go when I'm home. I haven't had my hair cut since August, and I've been growing it out for some time. Today I did something I've wanted to do for years.

I donated my hair.

Hal has never seen me with short hair. My hair is officially short, and not all of it fits into a ponytail. I'm still getting used to it, and I'm sure washing it will be interesting tonight. I haven't had short hair since I was a freshman in college, which was 7 years ago. I will post some pics of the new do soon.

I hope you all have fantastic Thanksgivings!
