I'm back in South Bend after a good thanksgiving break, though a terrible drive home (snowing, traffic, blah). A did pretty well when she met the family; lost a little money at cards, which was probably a good investment. I went back to the hometown bar to see if I could run into any old friends from high school, but it turned out that I didn't really want to talk to anybody that I saw there. Ironically, Minnesota was nicer and milder than South Bend; when I got back to the Bend it was cold and snowing. Now it's all ramping up to finals.
