And They're Off!

So tomorrow marks the first day in which I will have all of my classes. This is both exciting and slightly scary, because I know for a fact that I will now be extremely busy with schoolwork. One would think that by now I would know that even though I can handle 18 credits that is a lot of work. It also appears that I may not have to take one of my classes if I can get my hands on the syllabus for the class. I hope I still have some of my work for that particular class, but I am not sure. If I do have the syllabus and am able to prove that I am competent I will not have to take the class. That actually would be sort of nice. But we shall see. I am actually kind of excited for this semester to get into full swing. Because I have an interesting lot of classes and am ready to get to the learning. Im a huge nerd!!! Of this I am well aware... but it makes life fun!

Fancy Smancy Shopping

Everyone has hobbies at least I hope they have hobbies. Some people like movies, some like books (i like books... i bought a new book today), some like music and some like video games. These hobbies can all be expensive and time consuming depending upon how you plan to use them. I like almost everything except for the fact that i lack Hand-eye coordination to enjoy video games--- Im rambling.

One of my favorite hobbies is shopping and today allie and I did fancy smancy shopping in the city which was quite wonderful. It was fun to see all of the pretty clothes and the shoes and handbags... oh so many designers. I got a pair of glasses that are readers but im going to have my eye doctor put my prescription into them... they are red, but they are totally cool. But hanging out with allie was fun, listening to music in the car was fun, as was eating doughnuts and drinking hot chocolate from the convience store.... the outlet mall we stopped at on the way there was excellent as well.

Another hobby I have is my love of board games. apples to apples is amazing (and i rock), monopoly is good, life is excellent, and one of my faves is risk... i have always liked the game. But ever since coming to my current university i have become better and better at it. Some day I truly will kick butt at it, but for now I dont because I keep falling asleep because of the time that we start playing at.

I dont really have anything else to say right now. Im exhausted though. It was all of the driving I think.

This Week

Hello Everyone!!! (that is if anyone reads my blog). It is now FINALLY time to get back to the daily grind that is school. Im tired of just just having work to do. It makes life kind of boring. i have esl & culture, french, math (yuck!), issues in bilingual and bicultural education, some sort of technology for teachers class, american english which totals to 18 credits this semester... it seems like a lot, but I ended up only taking 12 credits last spring because I was burnt out. I am a little sad because im suppose to be doing my student teaching this semester like the majority of my friends but i am not, and even though its depressing and it seems like I haven't accomplished anything but I have-- and its something to be proud of. My mum asked me the other day what i was going to when I graduated and I have not idea because its actually a long ways away from now...
happy 2 months!

So now that Im not puking my guts out anymore, I am starting to enjoy the new year. I am going to my friend j's wedding this saturday; that should be interesting and fun. Today I had a meeting with my advisor and I was reassured that I most definitely was on track for graduation... so much in fact that I applied for graduation. 3 SEMESTERS TO GO!!!! I am totally excited, but a little nervous. Its kind of scary to actually have a light at the end of the tunnel. I will have to write more about that later... What can one actually do with a Bachelor's of Art in Linguistics? Well, Im not exactly sure so I am going to have to take a look at that. Laters!!!
