Snow! Beautiful, glorious snow! I've never seen any before, well, aside from books. I've simply got to get out in it today. Mom seems more grumpy than usual; she must've had 50 cups of coffee this morning! She keeps snapping at me for little things I'm doing that annoy her, like how she wants me to call her 'Mother' now instead of Mom. I can't imagine the stress she must be under. She's considering letting me go to the local university. I'm very excitied.
I was just notified today about the juunishi banquet that's going to be held. This will be the first year that the new cursed ones will be invited as well, albeit that they aren't the focus like the juunishi are. I'm very nervous; this will be my first time to dance for Akito since it's going to be the Year of the Rooster. How will I dance? Will he be please with me?
This is going to be a very interesting winter.
