Have you ever started laughing so hard in a dream that you've actually woken yourself up? If not, then I highly recommend it.

The last few weeks have been a blur. A general pattern emerged: work hard during the week, relax during the weekend, and spend most evenings curled up in bed with a good book. Believe it or not, I've devoured nine books already, several of which were more than a thousand pages long. I bought Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows around one o'clock in the afternoon, and finished it just after midnight. Which isn't even counting the time I took off from reading to eat, or the two hours I spent talking to my mom on the phone that evening. It feels like being back in high school again...

But that's not to say that I haven't been working around here. I've been pulling some long, long hours in the lab, especially in the last week or so. I've even had to come in and work on the weekends, and on Saturday I wasn't able to drag myself away from the lab until nine-thirty at night.

Though it is kind of cool to come in on the weekends. The labs are completely deserted, and I'm literally the only one around. There's a dining area on the top floor, and the windows overlook the entire city. During my longest days, I would take breaks every three or four hours and spend them up there. The silence and the view make for a really stunning combination.

So...I'll be home on Monday. It's a bit strange to think that the summer has passed by so quickly. Though it'll be a relief to be back to using my own computer, and not having to come to the college library whenever I want to check my email or type something up. Which is generally why I haven't been posting here much.

Which reminds me that I've missed a ton of birthdays since the last time I posted. So happy super-belated birthday to Becky, Megan, Phil, and Richard! Here's to the ripe old age of "Twenty-Something". May we all be "Twenty-Something" forever.

I need a sound off from those of you in Florida; who's still going to be around when I get back? I'll assume that if you see this bit and actually comment, then you're not opposed to the idea of seeing me at some point. I might even travel a bit; there are people to see all over Florida, after all. I'm definitely going to be visiting USF; I still have a year-long pass to Busch Gardens waiting to be utilized.

Oh, Busch Gardens...I can feel your sweet siren's song plucking my heartstrings from here...
