I emailed my professor in my violence & terrorism class to ask if I could use footnotes in our term paper, and got back an answer about three minutes later. I'm impressed. However, she'd rather we used paranthetical cites. Silly social scientists. :) It's funny, I freaked out last year the first time I had to use footnotes, and now I love them. They're easier than paranthetical citations, look better, and allow me to ramble at will. :)

I'm feeling pretty good about my mid-terms on Tuesday. I'll flip through the notecards some more tonight, and read through my notes tomorrow at work, and I should be set.

Jeff and I got out for a good long walk today, up to Whole Foods and back to fetch a couple of things (like dishwasher soap) that we were out of. It was nice to get out for awhile - it's been such a pretty day. We've got the windows open, and the fresh air feels good.

I'm doing my term paper for the violence and terrorism class on same-sex intimate partner violence. It's incredibly depressing stuff, even in a class full of depressing stuff. For my term paper in my social theory class, I'm going to see if I can figure out what WEB DeBois would have had to say about religious violence and terrorism. I'm not quite sure what this says about me, if anything.

I've got a lot of term papers this semester. I can't say I'm complaining. :)

It's not been a bad weekend. Quiet, but not bad. Fall break is coming up this week. I don't have PE class all week, and I've got Thursday completely off (and get to see tyche, yay!), and then I work 10 hours on Friday at the gym.

    I've used Fitday for my food tracking needs for quite awhile now. It's generally done what I've needed it to do. However, I'm getting tired of things…
