  • Waking up in a usual Wednesday haze, I finally had the chance to relax before dragging myself to school.

    I coached my mind through whatever few fleeting thoughts of responsibility may lie ahead for the weekday (did I study for that test on Catullus? Or what about that anatomy lab practical I had to prepare for?) as I pored through my e-mail. And there it was. I wasn't expecting to get a cowbird acceptance response any time soon, but it was staring me right in the face.

    As I stumbled out the door just moments later, I found my mind assembling the entires I would be making today, next week, and years to come. In short, I was excited to begin my digital journal.

    So I begin with a "getting to know you" post. A quick look at a daze of a morning and a photo with a shock of yellow hair.
    Hi. I'm Claire.
