Welcome to the blur that is a normal life. Working, commuting, cooking, cleaning up after yourself. The cycle never stops - it's like a big wheel, just spinning you and spinning you and hoping like crazy that you don't puke all over it's shoes. Anyway, life is good. Work rocks and the pool is tropical and refreshing.

Packing packing packing. Moving thousands of miles every 3 months or so sure cramps my style. Carrying my belongings up and down the stairs here at Webb cramps my legs and back, too. It was hot and so very humid here, which didn't help a single bit. Tomorrow is the big drive south - or the first half anyway.

It's been awhile - being lazy and sleeping too much is hard. Sadly, Long Island Sound was just a shade windier than skiable today, so sloth was the order of the day. A little laundry, a couple of errands, general relaxing in front of the stereo. You get the idea. Tomorrow the packing will have to begin in earnest, as Friday is the day of final judgment (and, hopefully, departure).

Saturday was a day of hot and laziness. A group of Juniors went to Swordfish during the afternoon, then we returned to Webb to catch the tail end of the graduation festivities. Another 21st birthday party kept the class in the pub until all hours, then several of us had a slumber party in the air-conditioned library. Sunday made us lazy with rain until mid-afternoon. From then on, studying has carried the day.

The week ended with an "as-advertised" EE final, some errands, and then a surprising round of 71 at the Jones Beach Pitch-and-Putt Par 3 course. The fog brought on killer humidity, though, and all is sicky and miserable at Webb the night before graduation.

Late night of studying and movie watching last evening, then up at the crack of dawn to take the ME 5 Steam final. After the test some general relaxing before studying commenced for tomorrow's EE final. Dense fog prevented much in the way of watersports, which is a bummer since it was quite still today.

Whew! Back on the internet after a few days of downtime, what a relief. While we were out, classes ended, two waterskiing trips took place, and it got hot and humid. Tomorrow exams start: steam and then EE on Friday. But, today's redeeming quality is that "O! Brother Where Art Thou?" came out on video. Some days you have to search for the forest in the trees.

Back to Webb and the work ahead after a weekend of relaxing. Friday night was the beach party, which featured Bloo. Saturday morning I attending my first-ever fire department drill tournament, which was amazing. See more at www.fdracing.com and be sure to root for West Sayville. In the afternoon, evening, and overnight, 10 juniors relaxed at the home of a friend of a friend - in the Hamptons. We lounged in the pool and hot tub, waterskiied, played frisbee (with and without the dog) and ate a great big steak dinner, all in the name of celebrating Doug's birthday.

More waterskiing today - the sun shined down and the sound was flat for about 90 minutes. Nick, Anthony, Candace and I all took our turns punishing the water behin the Whaler. Our last Thursday of classes today...fortune smiles. Plus, bigtime RAM upgrade for my desktop today, which means no more hiccups in my WinAMP.

After a LONG night of sleep to catch up from the weekend, today was blood donation and homework catch-up day. This evening is the sports awards banquet, to which most of the school goes. Hopefully, if the weather finally cooperates, there'll be waterskiing afterwards.

Webbstock '01 down, '02 to go. Despite rain in the morning and a 4-hour break after a harsh downpour at dinner time, the day was fun-packed and enjoyable. I waterskiied and played on the rented inflatable games and jammed with the 5 bands who rocked the campus on Saturday. Sunday was a day in the city with Robin, and today I've recovered from the work I didn't get and the sleep I didn't do.
