The failed aurora trip was fun last night. I haven't done something that random in a while. It started out badly, since my homework and my ears were bothering me (I have rather flakey hearing, and it occasionally really pisses me off.), but then it got better. We didn't see any auroras, but I mostly went along 'cause a road trip sounded good, so I wasn't too disappointed.
Wow. I just checked my savings account balance -- as long as I don't get too much of my stipend eaten by taxes (they didn't withold any), I'm doing pretty well financially. (Also assuming that my monthly stipend either doesn't change or increases once I'm working for Draper/Lincoln Labs.) That makes me happy, since I've been feeling lately like I'm living far beyond my means, and I think I'm not, despite having an apartment that rocks.
