Good afternoon, everyone, it's 4:37pm. It's a cloudy afternoon with temps in the mid 40s and it'll remain that way through the afternoon and evening. I'm monitoring 14 this afternoon from now until 6:32pm. I meant to come at 2:24, but had some other stuff to do. I'm sorry, guys. Actually, I'm really sorry for my lack of blogging in the last couple of weeks. I've been really busy and stressed out with school, although things should start slowing down after this week for a couple of weeks, then I'm going to have to really push to do well for my finals. May 9th will be my last day of the semester and I'll have a few weeks off. In June, I may be either taking a class on campus (I only plan on taking one class over the summer, Mondays and Wednesdays from 8am to 11am) or I may start working. I'll have to talk to the Financial Aid office this coming week about that summer class, and if I don't take the summer class after all, I'll be waiting to hear about a job. But either way, I plan on doing something over the summer. Anyway, today's my sister's birthday, so I'll be spending some time with her. With that, here's crime for this afternoon.
