I had a lot to think about today. Now, especially after talking to mom, I know what I want to do. I'm going to keep my major in International Relations and keep my French as a minor instead of a major. So: I have 9 classes left to take to graduate. I don't know if my scholarship will apply to the first year of grad school or not. In any case, I'm going to enroll in classes (next semester) that I need to graduate. When it's time to enroll for next spring, Jamie and I can decide if it would be better for me to go ahead and finish or to take another year after that. I've also decided (w/ mom's help) not to apply for the scholarship. I would only have a week to do it in, and that week includes 6 finals. Too much stress. I'm just happy that Prof. Cox nominated me! Also, watched the Orange Bowl tonight, decided w/ Morgan & Sarah to look for a cheap studio (for 3) and found out that Mom's cookies are already in the mail for me! I love you, Jamie!

I got to talk to him for a long time tonight. :) I had a fairly productive day - I bought stamps, envelopes, writing paper, and a highlighter, and did all my laundry (besides hand-washed stuff). Morgan and I ordered two big lemon meringue tarts from the patisserie - we're going to eat them (with everyone else) tomorrow night while we watch the Orange Bowl at the SUEE. Tomorrow during the day we're going to study litt. at a cafe... (sigh) I can't see how I'm going to pass that test, so I can't motivate myself to study. Vicious circle. It's past my bedtime. :) G'night my wonderful, wonderful man! I love you!

Mary and Sean are engaged! And building a house in Texas - and she bought a new car. I'm very happy for them, but I'm jealous of their financial situation. Jamie and I are going to be poor - in debt - for a long time. At least we know that now - we're already preparing. :) I had an email saying that Robert Cox (prof at OU) has nominated me for a scholarship! I need to check out the website tomorrow to print off the application. Had a run-in w/ Martine today over my missing the next two weeks, but it's over and I'm not going to worry about it anymore. I wish I could talk to Jamie... only one more day! I love you, sweetheart!

Talked to Dad & Mom tonight. :) I love my parents! Mom said she'll send me some cookies and her gingersnap recipe. :) Dad now knows that Jamie and I had my finger sized for a ring and that we're wanting to get married probably the spring after I get back. Dad, especially, helped me a lot with figuring out the money situation. I'm going to cut back my February vacation and go see Matt & Nat. Now it's Amsterdam, possibly Brussels, possibly a castle in Germany, and then Matt & Nat's. I'll do Mont St Michel on a long weekend some time. I have to be up in less than 3 hours for teaching; don't know what I'm doing for that. (sigh) G'night Jamie. I love you with all my heart!

Our 2 yrs, 11 months anniversary! I forgot to say that when I talked to him earlier. :( I'm really upset about money issues. I don't know how I'm going to do all the traveling I want to and still pay rent and eat. (sigh) I wrote a letter to Jamie tonight, but I still have a lot of others to write! Hopefully I'll do some of that tomorrow along with thinking of what to teach and making bunches of pbj's and fluffernutters for my classes. I need to go to bed soon... I finished the last book of the three dad sent - just to find out that there's a fourth! I'll have to ask him about it when I call tomorrow. Bedtime. G'night Jamie. I love you!

Our supplementary lit class was almost an hour and a half long. Yuck. And I didn't get any mail today - pretty disappointing. I really need to start my letter writing again. I have... (well, I just went through and took the time to address some envelopes, but I forgot to count - so)... some/lots of letters to write. I finished the second book of that series tonight, and started the third. My writing/thinking skills go downhill as I get more and more tired. Sarah and I had our x-ray and doctor appointments today. X-ray was quick - strip from the waist up and press yourself against a COLD metal thing, take a deep breath, and you're done. We waited about 45 minutes before getting in to see the doctor. He asked "height, weight, wear glasses, any problems" and we were done. I love you, Jamie sweetheart! G'night.
