Quick recap of last semester: December was absolutely insane. Prop 8 was a disaster, but the fight isn’t over. I lost all my notes right before Thanksgiving, and had resigned to doing poorly on exams. I took all my exams (over a hellish 3-week period) and promptly forgot about them as soon as break started.
I had an AMAZING break. I got to spend the holidays with my girlfriend (our first Christmas together) and my family.
The day after Christmas I left for Vegas!
That was probably the smartest decision I made all semester, planning and paying for a vacation ahead of time. I went with 3 of my best friends and my girlfriend (we survived our first vacation together w/o even a fight). I had a blast in Vegas and really do love that city…
Our scores (since all of our classes are year long, you don’t get actual grades) were returned to us the weekend before school started back, and apprehensive as I was, I opened them immediately. Much to my surprise I didn’t get any C’s and even managed 2 A’s. It has given me the encouragement I needed to really push myself this second semester.
On another exciting note, I got a Crock Pot for Christmas!
I have been making a lot of soup which is great in this weather and for having lunches all week.
Some great things have been happening in the world of Women’s College Basketball. Cal beat Stanford last weekend and is currently ranked #8 in the country!
Tennis season has begun and I have been catching the Australian Open on my breaks. Go Rafa! Makes me want to play tennis, too bad it's raining. I wouldn't mind sitting on a Melbourne beach right about now.
I knitted up a storm during the break, but have trailed off a bit now. The cutest thing I made was a hat for my friend, looking at the picture again, I should have stolen it for myself!
I am off to finish my resume and a website for an on-campus group. I hope to return to a regular posting schedule moving forward!
