"... you took my dreams from me, when I first found you."  
I'm not going to lie to you here.

My first reaction to this was "I swear to God.  Faithlessness just knows no bounds."

It's just the idea that a soldier goes off to war and then his girlfriend/wife/what-have-you can't hack it and goes lookin' for something else.  Happened to a friend of mine who did a tour of duty in Iraq, which parobably also colours my view.

I freely admit that there exist a huge number of considerations in any individual 'marriage failure' situation.  I concede that I am presuming on the idea that these poor servicemen (and women, truth be told) are just being abandoned by disloyal partners.  I take no umbrage at the fair and just contention that I'm providing zero benefit-of-the-doubt and have no analysis on this to speak on.

Still.

Digusted by these people.

Five.  Times.

Exams are coming up!  The stench of fear in the Law Library has reached phenomenal purportions.  The air is thick with the terror and discontent of my fellow students.  It permeates the corridors and some of the grounds around the Law Centre.

I love it.

Thanksgiving was fantastic. 

Ate too much.  Gained ten pounds (literally).  Happiness!

For a time I wondered if my grandparents were fattening me for the kill.

Looking forward to Christmas.  Good times to be had by all.  Even better, a lot of friends I haven't seen in a long time are being drawn - perhaps against their will in some cases - back to Hattiesburg.  Many happy events are being planned.

Also - Barak Obama won the election.  If I'm not complaining, I don't want to hear you do it.

The whining grates on the ears.

A weird thing - really weird - happened to me today.  It'll end up jotted on here eventually, but right now I'm still soliciting outside analysis.
