I love my girlfriend. She was with me here in Oregon for 5 weeks before she went back home to Houston. Since then I have been trying my best to work hard on projects I started a long time ago. Catherine starts College tomorrow, and I wish her well. I'm working on figuring out what I am going to do to get back in college myself in a way more meaningful than community college. I want to be on a track for a PHD from a nice "ivy League" school some day. I would probably be tempted to rip down any English ivy I found on an American school though since it is an invasive alien species that devastates native plants, and wildlife. Remind me to talk more about Catherine's amazing visit when I am not so sleepy.
