Can't Sleep

Haven't slept well at all since I went home for the holidays. My phone keeps ringing at weird hours with just a grindy noise, but luckily it's not waking me up as I'm already awake! Gonna head to the store tomorrow to see if they can diagnose my phone. Another weird story, I woke up this morning at 4AM and I was sitting in my car with all the windows rolled down. Not a clue why! Never sleptwalk before, must be all that collegiate stress getting to me!
Holidays are going great though, got a nice new book about trees I've been scouring for any info. I haven't heard from any of the seed packet people yet! Have you planted them? Have they started growing? Any idea what they ARE?! Ha!
Amateur Dendrologists, let's figure this out! Will be heading back up to school in a week or two as well, so I'll get to check the progress! Apparently it snowed pretty heavily, I hope the tree took that well!

Merry Seedmas

Exams are over! I'll be heading home for break so updates on the tree will be limited. Last note, checked it earlier. It snowed, but the tree was completely powder free, as was the rest of David's backyard. Kinda weird! Very dry back there. Anyway, the seed packets should have arrived! So let me know what you guys think of your seeds!

In the Mail!

My seed giveaway packets are in the mail! All you amateur botanists get ready, because a package is headed to your mailbox soon! If you are able to better identify the plant, please let me know! I got an extension on the deadline for my first proposal paper as Dr. Basire didn't show up for his meeting yesterday, and I'm still clueless! A friend of mine said it's starting to look sort of like a black Bristlecone Pine. Other than that deep red coloration. The bark is really smooth too, almost shiny. It's a pretty exciting plant.

I've been going over to David's less, which is why updates have been a bit less frequent. It's really warm at his house, which is nice in this winter weather, but I keep getting this strange deja vu feeling. Like there's a pit in my stomach or something. Probably just exam nerves, those have been stressing me out! I'll keep you all alert of any new developments, and watch your mail!
