Remember how excited I was to be all caught up on everything a couple weeks ago?

Yeah, me neither.

In the interests of brevity, let's just jump straight into the 5.

1. The last Friday of October is a holiday here in Nevada, so I took the chance to visit my best friend in LA.  It was so much fun!  I got to see the California Science Center on the USC campus; take LA public transportation for the first time; meet a bunch of her friends; go to a lesbian night club (where I got danced on before I was drunk enough to deal with new people, and had a very close call with a panic attack -- yay crowds and strobe lights!  I make a terrible queer. =/ ); drove to Sea World (which was kinda neat!); and got to go to the Santa Monica beach just before I left.  I had so much fun, and I got to see the bestest best friend ever!  (She is also my moirail, so step back, y'all.)

2.  The downside to having a weekend of fun and not quite debauchery is that I fell behind on everything.  Most of it wasn't too bad to catch up on, but I just can't manage physics.  Lectures are at 8 am, and the exam this morning was the first time I've been since before the last exam (which I slept through).  I crammed last night, and feel so-so about the exam.  I just have to try harder on the remaining two!  If I get at least a B on both of those, I should be peachy keen.  The high A in the lab, helps, too. (I've got the best lab partner EVER.  I so wish he'd been in my other labs!)

3. It's about the time of the semester to be starting on all my independent projects/term papers/etc., and I'm really looking forward to the one in my ecology lab!  Sunday my group is going to go out to the University Station Farm, and walk up into the hills North and West of it, to (drumroll please!) collect wild horse dung!  Well, what we actually want are the seeds that may or may not be contained in the horse fecal matter -- we're looking at whether or not wild horses contribute to seed dispersal.  Personally I think that this would be a better summer study, and it completely overlooks things like sticker burrs and goatsheads that will stick to the coat, but aren't likely to be eaten and pass through the horse's digestive system intact.  But still, SCIENCE!  I'll let you know how it goes. =]

4. As some of you may know...the End of Act 5 flash animation was posted last week! I know I'm a bit behind the curve on gushing about it, but it was (is!) fantastic.  Personally I think that it makes a lot more sense after reading the 4-part explantions Andrew Hussie posted on his tumblr, but it's still a delight to the eyes and ears.  I'm working my way back through the archives, and boy does it take a while! I think I'm in Act 3 right now; Jades's just been introduced, and I love her so much!  Okay, time to step away from the exclamation points...

5. Because I couldn't let you run away from Homestuck just yet (seriously, why would you even try?!), I'd like to plug one of my favorite AU's: Brainbent.  It's a Humanstuck, where everyone is either a resident or employee of The St. Lobaf Residential Treatment Center (LoBaF = Land of Brains and Fire; the author reeeeallly loves Sollux).  My favorite thing about it? (Well, besides everything.) It's run by LUKA DELANEY!  That's right, folks, author/draw-er dude of my very first favorite web comic, Kagerou.  So go check it out -- it's not like you were doing anything else, right?
