Achieving the Impossible

I like to think of myself as a pretty responsible person. While, much to Mamaduke's dismay, I'll still rage the weekend away despite the onset of a cold, or navigate the labyrinth of a subway system in NYC while flying solo, most of the time, I make the right decisions. Namely, I'm often a champ at staying on top of my work, despite countless commitments that keep me busier than the gift wrap department at Macy*s on December 24th. However, this semester, I was hit with more work during finals that I've ever had in my four years at Stonehill. Somehow, though, I made it through: my 15 page Shakespearean analysis of Romeo and Mercutio's homosocial bond (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz) is closerthanthis to completion, and I couldn't be any happier!

PS: This procrastination post goes out to DS and JD, two strapping young Stonehill gents who helped me maintain a moderate semblence of sanity as I spent my day in a deep, academic trance... Yeah. Right. ;-)

First let me say I am a long time reader, first time commenter. I am a true fan of your writing, it is fun and enjoyable everyday, and you are clearly very attractive from the picture you've posted. I read your bio everyday and everyday I fall in love. I don't want to come off as stalker-ish, but you are truly amazing. I hope someday fate will let our paths cross.
