I somehow convinced myself that staying up all night would be a good way to prepare my body for jet lag. I'm regretting that decision at the moment as I nod off in Houston's Terminal E airport lounge, waiting for my flight.

The last couple weeks at school were a blur: reading week, term papers, four final exams, Christmas parties, packing, and the usual shenanigans. Basically, I was wearing my pajamas and carrying around a giant box of Heart to Heart cereal the entire time. And disheveled and sleep-deprived and unshaven. (Extremely attractive, I swear.) Which reminds me of something Professor Scholl mentioned during a lecture on linguistics - why do we only say "disheveled", never "sheveled"?

Anyway, the caffeine's already wearing off.
