My original holiday plan had been to leave on Sunday. This would give me time to run a lot of errands and give my apartment a good cleaning. The fear that I would be snowed in on Sunday led me to try for tonight. I'd say I got about four miles, not even out of the city, before I gave up and turned around. It's just not worth the risk, and now I can ready my apartment for my absence properly. Of course, I'm looking at leaving on Monday now, and I hope I can borrow a shovel to get my car out.
Good news though, I bought a suit today! I was going to go home early to look for one up there, but I found exactly what I wanted here. I paid a good deal more than I would have liked, but I don't think it will need alterations.
My advisor teaches the honors gen chem course and recruited his grad students to grade the final exam today. It made for some fun and interesting times. One thing that bothers me to no end is how many students didn't put a degree sign on angle measurements. I had kids do that all the time on labs and I kept marking it wrong. Not sure why it didn't sink in that units are important.
Last weekend was pretty cool. My friends threw a small birthday party for me at their place so we could watch Christmas movies (I don't have a TV), and bought me an expensive (but oh so yummy) cake simply because I asked for it. We also went wine tasting. I now have four bottles of wine to bring home with me. If I ever get home.
