So. New Year's was great.

Spent 8-10 PM (approx.) talking to Rachel for a while. She dropped by to kill some time before her family thing. We just talked about stuff, nothing in particular. There were a few things I'd meant to talk to her about, but we never got there. And I still owe her a tarot reading. Did give her a gift, though - an angel I made, with wings of broken mirror. I'm sure there's symbolism in there somewhere, but I don't feel like looking for it.

Went to Kate's (inprotest) party after that. Got there around 10:45, stayed till about 5:15. Met some cool people, kicked some ass at Set, passed the Hat around for people to wear, taught a few people Euchre. Oh, yeah, and played with explosives a bit after midnight. Party was cool.

People also watched Bridget Jones' Diary. I didn't see a lot of it, but I did get one thought from it - I'm going to start keeping a daily journal for a year and see how things work out. Not here - this is for more public postings - but on my own computer. Personal things. Track my progress, for 2003 is going to be a big year for me. I can feel it already.

I don't believe in New Year's resolutions, as such - I believe it's a good time to start things, but that's more to do with calendrical convenience - so I present my resolutions, not to do with New Year's so much as with the term change.
*Get a 4.0 in my class work this term.
*Update Scatterplot three times a week, at least twice with comics.
*Start working out on a regular basis. (Mondays and Fridays will be good for this.)

This is all due to having an easier courseload. These are my winter-term resolutions.

Happy New Year, friends.

Oh, cool. Hey.

Yeah, you were getting good. And I'm not normally that good at it, either - or maybe it's just that I play with people better than me.

You nearly had me at Scrabble, though.

it was sheer luck on the last turn that did me in during scrabble. i've been playing a lot of that recently (like 5 games over break... and i think i won 3 of them.)

i'm still proud of my 20 points with just a 'w'. oh, and i looked it up in an official scrabble dictionary, and "ow" was there. exclamations are acceptable.

i also envy you for the once-a-week-euchre night... loyola totally doesn't have anything like that.
