Are radiators supposed to hiss so loudly they wake you up every night? Our bedroom sounds like a ship creaking through a squall. The radiator is the sea crashing against the rocks. I think it might be louder than Corey's occaisional snoring, which I would actually prefer to the horrible hissing sound.

Speaking of Corey, my fiance, he is just so good to me I can't even stand it. Twice a day, he dons rubber gloves and helps me put cream on a disgusting and horribly contagious fungus I have growing on my entire torso. Who would do that for me? I am trying to think of something nice I can do for him. I'm never home to do anything for him. I can't even make him dinner!

I'm probably only going to take two classes this spring for several reasons. First, if I were to take three classes I would be halfway done with the program and would have no coursework for my third year. Second, if I only take two classes I would have everything totally paid for through my assistantship.

On the other hand, it might seem attractive to get my courses all done and just write my third year. But do I really want to take out thousands in loans to get some extra time to write? I don't self motivate very well anyway...

These are things I think about while the radiator hisses away. At least we aren't paying for the extra heat!
