I spent labor day laboring away, as usual.

MCAT scores back tomorrow, and I'm not sure if I can check them. I'm really serious. Having spend $500 dollars on apps, it's a very scary prospect, indeed. I finally got a personal statement that I kind of liked, and I figured that it most likely wasn't getting any better than that.

Got a new phone, a snazzy Blackberry. No, it's not an iPhone, and yes, I will get carpal tunnel from typing in the infinitesimally small keys.

I've been commuting to work by bike every day for the past two weeks or so. It's such a great workout, and SO addicting!! I do get a little sweaty, but no one really likes me anyway, so my BO shouldn't make such a difference. Most of my nearly 4-mile ride to the lab is along the waterfront, and it's the best part of my day. No question. It's times like these when I could never imagine myself ever leaving Portland. It's so lovely.

Not much else is new in Zoe's life, but that is to be expected. I did get a fabulous new haircut, and have bangs that I actually like for the first time in my life. I can't even imagine having long hair these days. Absolutely insufferable. Ok, maybe an overstatement, but all the same.

I'm reading The Brothers Karamazov (slowly, for the second time, with a better translation) and I came upon something that I can completely relate with. Amazing how great literature has concepts still relevant to any era. Anyway, so at one point says that her love of humanity grows and grows with each passing day, yet the more it grows, the more she hates individual man himself. It sounds awful, it sounds HORRIBLE, but how true I find it.
