THE FLIGHT HOME WAS GREAT. I watched the Lion King, some Big Bang Theory, KINKY BOOTS AT LONG LAST, and the Devil Wears Prada. I was going to do things like write while I watched things, but I ended up playing Angry Birds the entire flight instead. And then Greg Dobbs was clearing customs at the same time as me, which I discovered because I spotted his stack of Florida Marlins luggage emblazoned with his number. Get some new gear, Miami boy.

My abuelas are making arroz con pollo for me tonight. ALL FOR ME. Well, for everyone else who is going over for H's birthday, but mostly they are making it because I have missed it a lot and they love me. OM NOM NOM.

I don't know what to do with the Panthers right now. The team that lost 5-0 to the Flyers should not then lose 2-1 in a shootout to the Penguins the next night, especially not with how shit our second night of back-to-backs have been this season. It's weird. But we're very likely to win the division, no matter what Wyshynski says, because no one else wants it and then PLAYOFFS IN FLORIDA IN A SPORT I CARE ABOUT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN WAY TOO LONG. \o/

Anyway, I need to go try and do some work on my essay so that I can pretend I am doing work this break, but this morning when I was up way too early I ended up curious about political contributions from athletes and ran this set of stuff, specifically for hockey players because the first football player I found the information on, from a different site, made me cry.

Thank god for opensecrets.org, seriously. )

My health issues are ... bad. And knocked me out long enough that I'm now at the point where it's freaking me out to e-mail my supervisor and my course convener even though I need to have done so by this past Sunday. I'm a bit more calmed down about my everything now that I've outlined what I need to do tomorrow -- I was just at a point where I needed to reorganize the paper again and I'm going to have to cut words, which means adding more, but it should be doable today.

I am officially moving home in August or September, depending on when I finish my dissertation. I'm really excited about this and will probably punch the first person to say to me, "But why do you want to come back to Miami when you could stay in England?" That person will probably be my best Miami friend and she will deserve it. I am allowed to want to be where I want to be. (I will probably end up moving elsewhere after about a year, but the first year is to regroup and be at home and basically decide if I'm going to try for the career option that makes everything else look horrible or go ahead and do the PhD.)

This article gave me all the feelings because Mike Weaver. Tell me more about watching him use his body and his stick, Jason Garrison!

Right. Time for breakfast and then for work, I guess. Tell me happy things, internet?
