Cool stuff (long)

So the term's over, and I've got several pieces of good news. From soonest-affecting me to latest:

Term's over. Duh.

I'm going to a ball tonight! Andrew (nightskyre) got an invitation for two from his IQP advisor at the Higgins Armory. He even went out and borrowed a black suit coat and bought a white shirt. It's so nice to be able to go to some kind of formal dance with my boyfriend :)

I just got a Discover Card. Credit is good (as long as you use it responsibly, of course).

My taxes are done, I'm actually printing out my copy for my records right now. I didn't get anything back, but I also don't owe anything, so it's all good.

MQP has been officially extended through next term, but this is good news. It means I'm not going to be overloading myself by trying to do it along with 3 normal classes. It's also good because we found some definite errors with our experimental method; so now we have time to do it over and do it right. (This is actually why it's being extended.)

I found an apartment!! It's really nice, though slightly small. The two girls who I'll be living with are also really nice. I'll try not to be overly gushy about it; I'm sure I'll write more later.

Go home for the week. I don't really like spending a lot of time with my mom, but I know I need to go home and clean out my stuff to help her out with selling the house.

Find a job. No luck yet; I haven't even managed to get an interview anywhere (to speak of).

Figure out whether I'm going to be a full-time or part-time student next fall, and how much it's going to cost me, either way. I want to be taking enough classes to be considered a "half-time" student, so I can defer my loans farther.. but I have a feeling that once I get up to "half-time", I'll just be paying full tuition anyway, so I might as well take 3ish extra classes.

In any case, I'm pretty happy right now. I hope things keep going well for me.
