What I enjoyed about this school year versus the last was that Spring was soon in coming. The crabapple tree underneath my window is in full flower; there are cherry and pear blossoms along the sidewalks I normally use to get to classes; the temperatures have been reaching 60° almost every day! There are even panicle hydrangeas and magnolias in bloom.

Though it had been raining for the past two days, the sun was shining brightly this morning. It was snowing.

Humans and nature just...don't get along, do they?

I'm lucky the due date for one of my papers was postponed to May 11th. Now all I have to do is write fifteen pages before then, and ten pages before the 6th, while preparing for the Russian and Japanese finals. ...Which, um, I'm obviously doing right now. Yes.
