Today I asked two separate authority figures to work around me and my needs instead of the other way around and they both agreed to do it quite happily. Squeaky wheels and whatnot, I suppose.

I also finally learned what a fixed gear bike means, in terms of stop-skidding and other bikerobatics, courtesy SB.

I ALSO saw a not-alive squirrel on my way home from school. I had to stop and stare at it a while, as I thought maybe it was just sleeping or too cold to run away or something. Then I spent the rest of my walk home trying to figure out how it died. I might have cried a teensy bit.

I need to be sure to walk a different route to campus tomorrow.
