I'm back! Had a wonderful and hilarious dinner and a movie with friends tonight. I feel welcomed back :) AND bought a Ken Ken 365 desk calendar on sale at Borders. Ken Ken is essentially Sudoku + small math problems inside. One time when looking through the New York Times for Sudoku, all I found was Ken Ken and since then I've been a huge fan. Now I have a year's worth of brain sharpening and entertaining puzzles.
On another note, hopefully I will be adjusted and ready to tackle academics by Tuesday. Winter Break was too fun.
