This year I was faced with the tough decision of whether to go home to my aunt, uncle, and cousins in The Woodlands for Thanksgiving or stay in Austin to not only catch up with school (which wasn’t exactly accomplished) but really to be able to go to the Texas v. A&M game, which I always wanted to go to and I came to realize that this would be the last year while in school that this game would be played at home.
With time running out, it seems everyone is trying to tie up loose ends and do a lot of fun things before saying a (hopefully temporary) goodbye to the city we’ve grown to love this past semester.
Well, fall is here. Kinda sorta. As is usually with Texas weather, it hasn’t quite made up it’s mind. Some days it’s cold enough for me to be wearing two jackets and other days I can manage with just a T-shirt. But either way, fall is here.

If you listen to a lot of music on your computer, you should definitely check out Last.fm “scrobbling.” Basically you add a plugin to your media player and whenever you play a song, it sends that song’s information to a server, where they compile information about the music you listen to.
Only a few more weeks and this first semester is pretty much over. Wow.
It’s hard to hope for sunshine,
When for miles and miles there’s only rain.
It’s hard to make it through these tough times,
When you’re constantly bombarded with pain.
No wires – just chords.
