Off for a month!
It was a tough semester but it's over! As of 8:00 this morning when I walked out of Phillips Hall after completing my Social Science final, I am free for a month. No homework, papers or exams for a month. I can read whatever I want! It's all very exciting! I did enjoy the classes I took this semester, excluding Social Science. One of the classes was about book production in the Middle Ages. It was just fascinating on how books used to be made all by hand. It was a slow process but the quality is beyond anything we have now a days. They were made on parchment which is basically indestructible, as long as it isn't attacked by bookworms or is in a fire. This class inspired me to take a book making class in the spring. I'm totally stoked about that because it's the first art class I've taken since high school!
Now that school is out of the way, I can look forward to the holidays. I have my shopping done and I just have to wrap a few more presents and send out cards. To be honest, I liked the holidays a lot more before I worked in retail but I've decided that no matter how rude or obnoxious the customers are the last couple of days leading up to Christmas, I'm not going to let it dampen my spirit. Earlier this week Kat and I went to the store and bought big lighted stars. We were going to hang them on our porch but then we discovered that we didn't have an outlet outside so Kat hang them up in our kitchen window so they can be seen outside. We also bought fake snow and stencils. We could never do that at home because we had cats. And we also have my scooby Christmas lights, that my mom bought me last year, in the living room and the wreath on the door. We are officially decorated for the Holidays!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
