There are still things to worry about, but this semester is already identifiable as the happiest in my college life.

I tried to save a flailing bird yesterday (black with iridescent blue/green body and a black-brown head). John drove me to the small animal clinic with the bird in my hands, but I won't follow up on its condition. It seemed sickly (no voice, but convulsing with panic), so I have little hope for it.
