The Weather Outside is Frightful

And I'd planned to try and get myself into the spirit with some Christmas tunes, but iTunes radio has apparently removed the holiday category. So I'm still ba humbug!
I think today will be the coldest of it, with the low falling all the way to an absolutely nutty 14. It gets worse though, as they're calling for snow on Thursday. Please be wrong. Wah, wah, wah!
Ok, so I lied. I've still not gotten the grades back for my manual and case studies. I'm a bit concerned, as the professor sent out a mass message yesterday stating that some of us had neglected to put names on our case studies, and they were thus lost in the shuffle when printed. I realized I'd done this, gah how dense do you have to be to not put your name! So I've been trying to call her and I've e-mailed her the corrected version, but I've still not heard anything. *sigh* I just don't know.
So what's a winter day with largely nothing to do good for? In my case, too much thinking. I've actually done that for the better part of the last three days. My cousin dropped in to visit me for a bit on Thursday, Sunday, and yesterday. Thursday and Sunday were particularly nice, as we did a lot of reminiscing and watched some football. I think I probably miss that aspect of my former life more than any other. My cousin is also getting ready to make big changes, which I think is great. While I wish we could go on living like 20-something's, there obviously comes a time when settling down and making a life for ourselves becomes a priority.
Speaking of making a life, if you could do whichever job you wished, what would it be and why? I'm really giving a lot of thought to this, as the spector of losing my graduate school opportunity still hangs over my head.
If my hearing weren't so shot, I'd have tried to become a reporter for NPR. If you've been reading this journal for any length of time, you know how much I love that network. I just feel that it would give me a little of everything: the opportunity to travel, a space into which I could project my messages, and most excitingly, a never-ending pool of new people and stories. I at least hope that I can tour the studios one day and meet some of the cool people I've listened to for years. That is one of the coolest things about Twitter: I've actually been able to hold conversations with some of those very reporters.
Well enough of my dreaming today. Right now I need to scrounge up something to eat. I've only had a box of raisins thus far. I'm hoping to go on a mini-grocery run to touch up on things, just in case the dreaded snow does in fact arrive. Ta-ta for now.
