Last weekend I visited South Dakota for the first time and really liked it. It's nice to see green space and streets that aren't packed with traffic and covered in litter. I am going back there for Fall Break and I can't wait. Oh, and I'll be bringing a new kitten back with me. I think his name will either be Samson or Simon.

I really can't wait until I graduate and get out of Knoxville for good. I like the weather here and there are a few other redeeming qualities about Knoxville, but mostly, it just stinks (both literally and figuratively).

I'm not alone anymore. I will physically be alone again for the next 5 weeks or so, but we have officially resumed relationship status.

My new ambition is to graduate as soon as possible. That means dropping my German minor, which is sad, but it's what has to be done. Most of the time I'm really tired of Knoxville and I think I'll be beyond ready to leave in the Spring after I graduate. I want to get out of here and go to South Dakota, to a place that isn't completely covered in litter.

We saw the boomsday fireworks display last night from my apartment. I guess there are some redeeming things about Knoxville. I thought I had seen fireworks shows before, but I really hadn't. They know how to do fireworks in the South. The whole thing was practically apocalyptic.

I don't know what else I can write about. I don't talk to a lot of people about things. I have to focus on academics, and I'm not thrilled about it. I am counting the days until Fall Break. I am using the thought of my graduation to muster up enough motivation to keep going.
