Some things I'm thankful for: After buying/ordering all the books for Winter Quarter, I added up everything... and was thrilled that the total was only $188.07... About a third of what Autumn Quarter was! I made it through a week-long road trip and nearly two weeks with the family over winter break without any mishaps. Christmas with my extended family was relaxing, and everyone enjoyed their gifts.
I know it's been a while, loyal readers /skimmers! As I'm sure you've realized from other bloggers, one of the two really excellent times during a quarter is just wrapping up - MIDTERMS! To satisfy your curiosity, the other really excellent time is FINALS! Of course, I'm being slightly sarcastic, but in truth, it is exciting to show all the professors what I've learned so far. And the feeling once all the midterms are over... nearly priceless. So let's have a recap of what's been happening recently. The good news:
The first week is actually more exciting then my title claims but when you get down to it that's what usually ends up happening, reviewing the syllabus for an hour and then trying to figure out why your laptop won't work. Needless to say everything worked out but that's the first week for you.
