Rest? For the weary?

The short answer is no.

Thanksgiving was a nice break (with plenty of good food), but it was too short to get much work done. And now it's back to work.

There are generally two parts to a really busy week: the week itself and the aftermath, which comes anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks later. Well, the aftermath from two weeks ago has arrived, and it isn't looking bad. My paper on Aristotle and term paper on diplomacy in Chile came back they both turned out well.

My senior thesis, while definitely behind schedule (it's due Dec. 8) is coming along too. I hit some big mile markers in the last 48 hours: 4000 words, 5000 words, and 6000 words. The length is supposed to be at least in the neighborhood of 6500 words, but there is still an enormous amount of work to do.

The application process for Holy Cross Associates is also going well. Last week I filled out 3 hours worth of psychological paperwork in preparation for my clinical interview tomorrow. Why so much work? In the words of one friend: "They want to know if you're nuts. And they want to know if you're going to go nuts anytime soon."

In the meantime, there's always more reading and writing to do. Back to work....
