Mood: fascist

I just walked to work and practically froze to death. It's 14 degrees. Obviously I would not survive a winter in Russia. (Note how I rationalize my decisions. Sigh.) Then again, wearing a hat might have been a good idea. Just maybe.

My finals week:
Monday: sleep, rest, relaxation
Tuesday: 11:30am Russian Drama "final". We'll be eating food and acting out a few plays (Zoya's Apartment by Bulgakov, Theater of the Soul by Evreinov, and Squaring the Circle by Kataev).
Wednesday: reading day. I will be recovering from working the previous night, and I might even study for my Russian final.
Thursday: 1:30pm Russian final. If I study a little, I should do fine. I might also study for my Stats final.
Friday: 7:30am Stats final. I'm only kidding about the studying. Oh, and I work that night.

Saturday I pack; I head home on Sunday. It'll be weird to be back in Chicago. I haven't spent more than a week there in the last six months. That's the longest I've ever been away from "home." I plan to spend my break reading, writing, resting, sending off applications, and attempting to give my cat shots for diabetes. (Which was just diagnosed yesterday. Kind of worried about it, but you know, things will work out one way or another. That's life.)

Not to mess with your rationalizations, but it might be warmer in at least parts of Russia than it is here. I have a bunch of different cities' weather forecasts on my phone. It's seven degrees here (here being Milwaukee) this morning, but it's 34 degrees in Helsinki, which is pretty much right next door to St Petersburg. So, you might actually be able to get away with saying, "it's colder here than in Russia!" :P

hahaha... well, there IS a Facebook group called "Kirksville is an Arctic Tundra." Apparently they're right!

Of course, I suspect it's significantly colder in Yakutsk right now. Yakutsk also happens to be the coldest city in the world, and coincidentally (consequently?) my dream vacation spot...
