    I think what was the hardest was losing a pet during the end of the first quarter and having all the "this is the reality of death" lectures come our way. I am thinking about getting another pet but I cannot really see it being feasible at the moment -- I am a little too busy to take care of a puppy but my partner will be here so it's still a viable option. I keep trying to convince myself that it will be a good way to structure some "outside" time since I'll have a good excuse to put the books down and walk the pup.

    My little weasel stays in my mom's room until I come home, then he barks to be let out, runs to me to see if I have treats, gives me a look after seeing I have none as if to say "What took you so long that you didn't even bring treats?", then runs back to mom's room while I dive into bed dreaming of oblivion. This is a daily ritual until next May...
