Spring Break!

I had such a great time in Indian Wells! The tennis was great. It was great to see Fee and Susan again and Caryn, Christine, Angela and Mel were awesome!! I learned a lot about what it's like to be a working journalist at the tennis tournament. The one disappointment was that one of my favorite players, Juan Carlos Ferrero had to pull out because he had the Chicken Pox. What is a 24 year old man getting the chicken pox anyway? The poor guy.

So that was the first half of my spring break. The second half, my mom and I went to the mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota. I love that place. We didn't do the as much shopping as we usually do but mostly just hung out. That's what I love about my family, is that we genuinely like being with each other. We all have our own interests but try to include all of us in our interests. It's great! I hear all the time of other families don't get along and fight all the time and feel lucky that I come from a family that I can talk to and feel comfortable joking around with. My family is Wonderful!!!

School News

See this is what always happens to me. Every time I start a diary or a journal, I write on a regular basis for a couple of weeks and then a couple of months later, I realize that I haven't written in it for a while. *sigh* I think I am just too lazy to keep up a good diary.

In other news, I've really enjoying my paper making class. I'm getting ok at it but it's a lot harder then it looks. In our last class, we made stamps. How cool is that?! I've been doing better in my other classes as well. I got an A- on my first midterm of the semester. So that's a good sign. I also got a B- on my book report for African American History. Personally, I think my professor was an easy grader in this case because I don't think it was a B- paper but at least a C but Hey! I'll take it! I have two midterms and a paper due on Thursday, so wish me luck.

The best thing about midterm time is that it means that spring break is soon. Kat and I are going to Indian Wells, CA to meet up with some friends and see some world class Tennis! I love tennis but I think I've mentioned that before but what is going to be really cool is that I'll be doing some work while I'm there. I'll be one of two reporters covering the event for My friend Christine started this site so our little tennis community could have an outlet for our work. I like to think that this experience, along with my work last year, will help hone my journalism skills. Who knows what I will end up doing after I graduate but hopefully this will open some doors.
