A.D.'sblog prompted me to check out what I was up to a year ago today. Apparently I was signing my life away in student loans. Which reminds me that my leave of absence is almost up, that for once in my life I will not be looking forward to spring. Spring looms along with papers and deadlines. Although, most likely, I'll be running to class. Even if the only reason is to get out of making more pine cone bird feeders.
