I guess the key to succeeding in grad school is making the best use of all of your time. I try to get everything done for school during the day then have time to relax or hang out with friends in the evening. Last night I was able to cook for my roommates and other friends. It was a good time and nice to get away from the books.
Other happenings this week include an earthquake!! Yes, we felt an earthquake here in North Carolina. I was sitting in my living room and first I heard the door rocking like someone was tapping on it. Then I saw our ceiling fan start to shake vigorously. I really was worried it was going to come off the wall. So I got up and looked out the window thinking maybe it was really storming. Then I thought maybe the neighbors upstairs were playing loud music. Well, I was wrong because my friend Felicia who was in Greensboro called to ask me if I felt shaking. I turned on the news and then found out that there was a 5.8 earthquake in Virgina. Here is a picture of a food mart in Mineral, VA where the earthquake was.
