My head hurts - learning Chinese

Ow. My head hurts. I just finished my first Chinese lesson in a month or so. It was depressing how much I forgot but actually kind of encouraging how much I remembered (which is anything at all). It was only my second class solo, since Tom,…

Lost in space

I wrote a great post about the Backstreet Boys concert last night but Jacob ran up here after school, eager to get on cartoon network.com and somehow managed to close down everything I was working on, losing that and some other stuff.…

Getting ready to head back
