Movie night tonight, day off tomorrow, and Orion guiding me up my driveway and home.

Betelguese, Bellatrix, Rigel and Saiph at the corners, Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka in the belt, Meissa the head...well, I'll probably remember at least some of that.

Short-term plans: more star memorization (curse this bitterly cold weather), more Czech reading, and a trip to the library tomorrow. After eight hours of sleep.

Edit: Am acquiring a tripod, will experiment with astrophotography tonight. And memorizing some stars in Lepus, and trying to find anything visible in Monoceros. Finished "Smrt morĨete" the short story today, handwritten, will try do type some tomorrow. Oh, the editing I'm not doing.

more star pictures! *since we only have fog, even during the day, thick mysts surrounding our campus, not letting through any sort of daylight - not that I would know the difference, I'm in my finals week!*
in short: more stars :)

Thickly clouded the last three nights. I've been trying, though.

I'm glad to have remembered to look here. I am close to having more time to write and more interesting things about which to write. My first day in Prague is one month from today!

I've missed you.
