How has it only been a week? I feel like I never left Carleton to begin with. Though I have encountered lots of little random changes around campus, like changed landscaping, new ID cards, slightly changed policies and new organizations. The weirdest thing to me is that I've never seen two out of the four classes of students before, so I only vaguely recognize half the people.

It's already cold, earlier than usual. It's not too bad yet. Northfield is even more amazingly gorgeous with my ability to see perspective now. The first time I walked past the chapel I was staring so hard that I started to worry about veering off the sidewalk. I swear Northfield is like a collection of postcards in every season. The leaves are starting to turn, which is cool.

I'm still pretty stressed out about things, but I've still managed to accomplish a ton of stuff. I now have a Japanese comps project and will start that seriously on Monday. I'm starting my job as office assistant for the Asian Languages department next week after I sort out some paperwork, which is good. My classes look good. It's so great to be doing clay again; it makes me so incredibly happy. Painting is frustrating so far because I don't know how to do it right yet, but I'm hoping I'll get better at it soon. I really want to do part of my art comps next term in painting so I hope I can get it to work.

In dog news, poor Durin hurt his front left leg last night. I was chasing him around the living room (he gets to be in there during the day now so that he has more space) when he suddenly stopped and looked unhappy and couldn't stand on it. I think he pulled or twisted something, like that time he fell in Tokyo. He's a little better this morning; he can stand on it now and limp around. Poor baby.

Before that he's been doing great and getting lots of walks by me and Maraia (one of my roommates this year). I'm getting him neutered next week at the Humane Society, so that will be good. It's been needing to happen.
