Saladin Sent Richard the Lion-Hearted Fresh Peaches, Pears, and Even Snow from Mount Hermon When He Heard Richard Was Dying from a Fever

Today has been chaotic! Wow! I spent the first half of the day enjoying my new German course, the one on nonfiction! I think it's going to be very exciting despite the lack-lustre, academic title fate bestowed upon it. We get to do research projects on subjects of our choice, and the book we're using is going to introduce us to a variety of random and pertinent vocabulary! Grammar is also going to be looked at in a practical manner, which is exciting for anyone that verges on giving high-fives for seeing someone use the subjunctive correctly like I do. I had time for a short breather, grab some lunch, and explain my misunderstanding about a class meeting time. (I'm extremely capable at making extremely silly mistakes at times, and I entirely missed that the time for one of my courses had entirely changed until this morning, after the first meeting had been held! Thankfully I didn't lose my spot; I've heard so many good things about professor Olmstead and his classes that I had to take one myself!) The second half of today saw me running back and forth between the book store and my dorm room; first checking book prices and realizing my modest pocket change would not do(I'm trying my best to be optimistic about book prices; I've been lucky thus far- my neighbor paid over $100 for one book!), and then to try the ATM machine in Ham Will. As luck would have it, the machine stopped service sometime between my leaving and returning, which allowed me to quest with a moderate level of excitement to The Bank in downtown Delaware. A few blocks and a wind-whipped nose later, I convinced the machine to provide me with the proper amount, which the bookstore promptly consumed all but $2.89 of. My prize? Six books, ripe for the reading and a slim, no-need-to-diet wallet! I get to dig into a healthy serving of Global Issues reading tonight as well!
It’s great being back on campus, seeing everyone and starting new classes! Tomorrow I get to attend my tutorial that I have with Shannon; it’s about children’s fiction. I’m rather excited about it! Shannon and I had a small ramen party yesterday when my computer freaked out, and I needed to borrow the wireless you can pickup from someone’s router there to download Window’s Defender. Our ramen parties are always fun, and AIMing someone two feet to the left of you can be hilarious, especially when you attempt to do so in an accent that doesn’t translate well to being written!
It’s getting colder here and finally acting like an Ohio winter, even if it’s a bit late and still giving us a relatively easy time of it. (Not that I’m complaining!) Some vague attempts at snowing made by the clouds today were not exactly applause-worthy, and a mass of squirrels still played in the grass. I saw seven(!) playing and eating in front of Thomson, their poofy tails twitching as they busied themselves with chewing on random things found on the ground. I still want to have a pet squirrel for our room; Abigail even liked the idea, since Kevin Bacon would make too much noise exercising all night if he came!
