hi, blog, it's me, nicole.(-aret.)

Hi blog. Long time no see. But I was just talking about you, and thought I'd check in.

What's up with you?

So much has gone on here. I'm defending my thesis next week! You should come. Look, here's the link to the announcement on the Vanderbilt web calendar! Exciting, huh? You're not just a blog, you're a *doctor's* blog, now!

*pats blog on head*

Well, I need to get to sleep. I know, I know, you're upset I'm leaving so soon. But, I'm really sleepy, and it's been a really, really long week. I do think about you, and all the fun we've had together, though. C'mere. Give me a hug.

What? Wh-- hm, okay, yes, that's true, you did overhear me talking about starting another blog. Uhm, yes. Possibly a new one, on, like, a specific topic. Possibly on wordpress. But I'm not completely su-- ... aw, don't cry, blog! I'm... I'm not sure yet. I mean, I think I just read somewhere that we could go there,! To Word Press! Together!

Don't cry, lil' blog. Like I said, I think, and speak, of you fondly. All we've been through, all the places we've gone together. And, even if we go separate ways, we'll always have the archives.

I am quite happy to have gotten through infamous-rock-star-death-year. Considering the random illnesses and accidents over the past twelve months, it's good that this ominous age is ovah. The irony would simply be too much.

your close personal rock star,

movin' on up

Hey, that's *MY* program up there!

#2! In the whole country! Wow. Way to go, y'all.

See, with impressive stats like this, why would I ever want to graduate and leave this fine establishment?

(just kidding, committee, just kidding...)

happy new anus

My tilde didn't transmit via text message to some, so I sent out wishes for a prosperous anus to a few folks after midnight.

It could be fitting, depending on who you are, really.

Happy new year.

I think I might try to come up with resolutions and write them down. Somewhere. Not necessarily here.

I thought of one that I had never come up with before, in terms of New year's resolution-making. Ready for this one?

1: Graduate.

How about that?! I should have thought of this earlier.

In other news, while I have plenty of work to do on the computer here, I probably should get back to Nashville for wet-lab-multitasking. For all of my mental debating about what it'd be like to live in Atlanta again (overwhelming feeling towards the entire southeast: meh.), I sure am enjoying staying here and not feeling like heading back just yet. Then again, I'm in *Decatur*, so it's *different* I suppose.
