Study, Study, Study, Study...

I really hate the system of having finals after winter holiday. Everyone goes into the break with the best intentions of studying at least a little every day. This, of course, never happens. I know my plan was to reread most of the English books and do an exercise from the Gaelic workbook everyday just to keep my mind going. That lasted about a day. So, now my days are filled with trying to remember the main point of "Confessions and Memoirs of a Justified Sinner" and the narrative style of "A Study in Scarlet". Not to mention the fact that I'm trying to read the few pages of each book I skipped (yeah, I know, I shouldn't have done that, but some of the chapters didn't seem too important to the book as a whole...especially in "At Swim-Two-Birds"). I'm also translating at least 10 sentences a day while working on vocabulary and the paradigms in Gaelic. Today I have a study session in Art History which will *hopefully* help me remember some of the technical terms used. Darn University...

By the way, yesterday was my brother's birthday and I meant to post about it, but I was more or less busy all day. I did my Wordless Wednesday on my other blog, but forgot to come over here and post. So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the bestest Big Brother ever!

This is actually the only recent picture I have of my brother that shows his face. He doesn't like taking pictures so much. Anyway, this is us at my dad and step-mom's big wedding this past summer. Greg is the only male in the group.
