Ok, Arkansas isn’t exactly a steppe, but I couldn’t resist the visual pun. It did feel like spring today–my car was actually very warm when I left work at 3:15, and green things are popping up here and there. It is quite nice to live in place where there is ocular proof that seasons exist. I had begun to believe that southern California must have boycotted the whole season thing; perhaps it is just too uncool to wear warm clothing and scrape ice off of cars. Good news: 7 of my papers are completed and the 8th is very nearly so. When the 9th is done, I will mail the whole kit ‘n caboodle to TMC, hopefully on Monday. Then, as soon as Dr. Larson enters my grade, I will be finally and officially done with college! What a relief. Don’t worry though, I still intend to study for the rest of my life 🙂 Would appreciate prayer that I will be diligent to finish the last two papers and check all 9 for errors and source citations in time to mail by Monday.
