how wonderful life is while you're in the world

Hi everyone-

it's the middle of the finals season and they are pretty heavy this year. You wouldn't know by looking at me right now, since I'm sitting in the computer lab across the street from our house trying to figure out ways to avoid studying!

Tomorrow's final is in a class that I'm doing pretty well in already, but I'd still like to do well on the final. I think I'll be getting up early to cram.

Last night, Nathan and I went camping. We were at Kickapoo State Park and our campsite was on a bluff overlooking a lake. It was beautiful, although it stormed complete with lightening and thunder that echoed through the forest and off of the bluff faces. It was really cool, and our AWESOME tent kept us nice and dry!

I'm listening to the "launch" service offered by yahoo, the same folks that host my email. Launch is the music service, and you can set your preferences by rating the songs and artists that you like. From your ratings, the radio plays other songs and artists that are similar to your tastes.

And boy do they have my number tonite. I really wanted to hear Seals & Crofts' "Summer Breeze." (GAP's bought the rights and has remixed it a bit and played it as the background for their summer line commercials - I like it a lot and have been closing my eyes when I hear it an remembering listening to it when I was a wee one. I don't know how I feel about a woman walking along the beach toward me and taking off her shirts, but I am glad that Seals & Crofts are profiting from it - at least I hope they are...) Anyhow, the radio has, based on my Seals & Crofts entry, suggested and played Elton John's "Rocket Man," and, most recently, Toto's "Africa."

I almost cried with delight when I heard that last one...

Anyhow, off to the land of cramming! Have a good week!
