I'm hoping to finish my book review on a biography of Saint Thomas Becket in time to post it on his feast tomorrow. In the meantime, if any of you were wondering where I've been:
-I finished my first semester of an associate's degree in computer game programming. It was already several degrees of magnitude tougher than anything I did for my last year of my bachelor's in history. I don't know if I'll manage to survive a second.
-My application for graduate school was rejected for the second time.
-I visited my relatives in Georgia for Christmas. That was nice.
-My bank account fell afoul of the Steam winter sale. That was not good, since I don't have enough time to play most of these games, anyway.
-Today, I chanted at a 1962 nuptial Mass and attended the reception afterward. I always feel awkward at wedding receptions. I spent most of the time imagining planning my own wedding, and was terrified.
