Finals are coming up, and Thanksgiving vacation took all my work ethic out of me for the past couple of days. I've got two huge reports that I'm working on, one on the Civil War and the other on the Congo. Not having fun writing those. And on top of that, I've been having problems concentrating on them and classwork, and I've been really forgetful about things. At least the power's on so I can work on this stuff.
Talked to Lexia today, and it's kinda scaring me at how fast the London trip is coming up. I really can't wait to go, it'll be really something to do. Trying to work out a budget for it, as well as getting a ton of small details out of the way. Gah. Over the break, I went through my music list and came up with a list of travel-related songs to listen to. Here it is:

Okay, back to the reports...
