around this time every year, I find myself looking around at everything I have and just thanking God that everything I need has been provided to me. Then I thank God a second time for the fact that everything I need doesn't have to be picked up, packed into boxes, and crammed into a dorm room the size of my bedroom closet. seriously.

Speaking of stuff, I got a new TV a bunch of months ago, and have finally made use of the picture-in-picture feature. I can tape the olympics when I'm not home, then come back and play the tape while letting the live coverage play in the inset picture, then swap whenever I feel like it. so cool. track has been kind of sad lately, I was so heartbroken that no American women pole vaulters made the finals. We're the ones who let women pole vault in the first place! sigh.
