I woke up this morning after a glorious ten hours of sleep and did one of my favorite things: loaded up on coffee and took Bailey for a walk around my snowy neighborhood.
Wait, whaaaaaaat? That doesn't look like Eugene!! Did I fail out of grad school?!?!
But what does it all mean?! Okay, this mostly just means covariance. Incorrectly calculated, I might add.
Sorry, that was dumb. School's awesome. I'm obviously just home for the holidays. And a long holiday it is: 3 weeks in total! I think my body was about to kick the bucket if it didn't get some serious R&R/detox/real food STAT so I'm really looking forward to the time off.
The idea of updating you on #every #detail #of #my #life in one fell swoop makes me nauseous so we're going to use one of Holly's favorite tricks and chunk it. Today's update is easy: Bailey!
Remember Bailey? Bailey's the best. Bailey lives with my parents again. She also apparently struggles with looking happy in pictures.
The vet evidently told my parents that Bailey needs to lose ten pounds, so I expected to be greeted by an enormous dog. Fortunately, she looks roughly the same as I left her. I mean, no, you can't feel her ribs, but she's not wheelchair-bound. Good thing, since we went hiking at a very chilly Flattop this afternoon.
It was very windy
What else is there to say about a dog's life? Bailey went apeshit when I got back a couple of nights ago, which felt awesome. I was worried her adorably-demented brain wouldn't remember me, but that was not the case. In fact, she refused to move from my bedroom door until I woke up the following day at noon. She wouldn't even eat or go outside. I'm pretty sure she was afraid I'd leave her again if she wasn't there to stop it. I'm already anxious about going back to Eugene.
So there you have it: Bailey!
Next up, what you really want to hear about: running! Oh dear.
