It's been a quietly productive day. I wrote two out of the three lectures for my first week of courses, and prepared an accompanying Powerpoint presentation for one of them. I won't have to stand in front of my class and amuse them with my bad impersonations of cartoon characters, which is always good.

Then, I went to pilates class for the first time in months. Pilates is still pain. They seem to have discovered some new, even more painful exercises in the interim.

I got an e-mail from Phil's parents to thank me for the Christmas card and letter I sent them. They were very nice about me. I'm starting to think that I am the sort of girl that guys take home to their parents, because they inevitably like me. I'm not sure how I feel about that, though. Being likeable to parents is not exactly the most sexy or exciting trait.

Speaking of Ohio, I'm thinking of applying for an MA in Education at OSU as a back-up plan. It's one of those degrees that I've planned on getting, and it would only take about a year or so. I just really want to go to OSU. They have the English programme that I want. I've looked at tons and tons of institutions, and no other English programme suits me quite as well. I'd feel like I was getting second best elsewhere.

Plus, I'm not going to lie. Phil is still a factor in my decisions. I still care very deeply for him, and I want to see what we can have in the future, because I believe it will be amazing. Some of you might think that I'm being stupid, but, well, you'll have to think that. It's not like I'm choosing the hope of a relationship with him and abandoning my own ambitions and plans. I ultimately have to do what is right for me, and this feels right. So . . .

Anyway, I'm operating on the belief that I will be accepted into the Ph.D programme. (touch wood, etc.) This application would simply be a back-up, a safety net if you will. Acrobats using them don't believe that they will fall, but they're glad to have them anyway.

Besides, I think it's perfectly clear to all who know me that I've already fallen. Hard. :P

A reminder: I'm going to make the move to the new journal soon, so add kae to your friends' list. I'm still setting up the icons there and deciding on a look for it, but I'm almost done now. I just need to put up the more personal, photographic icons.

Did you decide that's going to be your user name? I like it - I don't know what Thomas' issue was... :P

No, I'm going to change it. I just need to clear my credit card so I can buy the name token.

Who knows what Thomas thinks? He's a crazy person. :P

I'm pretty sure that I won't be doing that, if I do get to meet them. I'm normally pretty anxious about making a good impression.

Your parents said I was an intelligent, independent and delightful young lady. XD
