Ugh, that sucks about your schooling! I didn't have quite the same situation but classes tend to do that to me as well in the past. At least it all work itself out! It will for you too! whee

And I went to Redding for the New Year! We wanted to watch the ball drop in the beginning but we were playing such a FUN game that we didn't want to anymore! xd I think we went to sleep around 4am or something. waaaah. But I loved the game we played! Also, yummy food!

And wow, you went body searching?! In that cold water?! Ugggggh. OR! If you were in Florida it shouldn't be too cold, right? Still, what an awful situation to be in. sad I hope s/he is okay!
