Scott Hardie | March 15, 2002
I'm leaving in three hours to go to St. Charles for the weekend. Originally I was supposed to spend this whole week there, and see everybody one last time before I moved out of Illinois. I had to cancel that plan for a number of reasons, the foremost being that I had too much homework to do this week. How much homework have I done? Very fucking little. :-(

So, I could cancel the weekend and do my homework, but it's my own fault I'm this far behind, so I'm going to go. We want to see Lori and Ray and Serena on Saturday; I'm hoping to watch "Moulin Rouge" with them because I think Lori would love it. Jason wants to see "Resident Evil" on Sunday and get dinner afterwards, which is fine. We'll also see Ryan at some point, probably lunch on Sunday. And Kelly wants to see her old friend Derek, but I'm not sure when. In-between all of this, there's a doctor's appointment for Kelly, and spending time with Kelly's family. I'm glad we're not leaving until Monday morning.

I will probably be online some nights, late, to check messages. I will have some of my homework with me, will type it on the Lees' computer, and email it to myself. I'll be back on Monday morning at 10am, just enough time to take a short nap and then work another sixteen-hour shift (a la March 6th) getting all of my homework badly done, but done. Sounds like fair punishment.
