Whee! Holographic egg hatched
! It's an embryonic gecko! I shall name him...George! For George is a good name for an embryonic gecko!
ALSO ALSO. Lookit! DIGIVOLVING OCCURRED
!!!!!! Sylvia is now a bigger winged fox! With wings! And Felix has become a big radioactive cat...lizard...thing. With a big fluffy tail! OMG HE MUTATED FROM THE RADIOACTIVITY. ;_;
So, um, yeah. I guess while I'm here, may as well give an update. I'm alive! Barely. School is trying very hard to give me a beating I won't forget. The problem is there's still about half a semester to get through. I want it to be over.
Right now I'm in the midst of trying to finish up the analysis part of my project, and trying to get resources together for my ancient/medieval science course's term paper. GOD it's hard. You'd think it'd be easier to find stuff on alchemy, but nooooooo. I'm having a very hard time settling on an exact topic. I want to do something on the Philosopher's Stone and its relation to concepts of nature, but my prof seems to think that might be fruitless. So she instead suggested I look at one of Bacon's works and try to figure out what he was thinking. The funny thing is, I think I'm finding less on Bacon than I am on the Philosopher's Stone. So I dunno what to do. And I really want to turn in my proposal tomorrow. Sigh.
I'm also fighting with the problem that I *desperately* want to write something that's not school-related. I've got two stories and three RPG characters bouncing around in my head, and allowing myself fifteen minutes to working on them each day (usually when I'm eating), just isn't enough. I wish I could use the upcoming spring break to work on them, but I doubt I'll have much time. I've got several projects to work on over break. Oh well. We'll see.
Other things...um...the weather screwed around with the trees. In particular, it killed off all the flowers on my favoritest tree on campus--a humongous Japanese magnolia that looks absolutely gorgeous in bloom. Seriously. The flowers are so prolific the tree is downright NEBULOUS in its floweriness! I call it my star tree, mostly due to the fact that I walked up to it one day on my way to class when it was in the midst of budding, and between my sleep-deprived state and the fact that the large yellowish buds were fuzzy enough that they could catch the light and give them a little bit of a glowing look, it looked almost like the tree was growing not flowers, but tons of little stars. <3 <3 <3 <3
Also, the Bradford pears are blooming. Ugh. Remind me to write a rant on Bradford pears.
Anyway, I should work on getting going. My supervisor for the project is currently off in the West Indes collecting specimens, so I'll have the herbarium to myself. I dunno that I'm really up for spending the next several hours completely by myself, but oh well. I can always keep myself company by singing along to the grooves of ELO. <3 <3
