Spring Semester is OVER

Tennyson, with the van outside of the Stratford. She really wanted to drag this beast home. I thought it would be a good car for Banner to have when she turned sixteen. A new paint job, with a shiny magenta stripe down the middle, that would be so cute. Too bad Mom and Dad turned it down.

I just finished the semester this past week. I wanted to take it easy. I felt a little overwhelmed at the end. I had never taken 18 credit hours before, and add working 20 hours a week, and you get an insane combo. I have a new appreciation for those who have done it before, and those who have yet to do it. I got a little crafty this past week. I made another bag for my roommate Ashley's graduation. She has a Masters Degree now! She is amazing. Also, I started putting together all of my charm packs together. I think the quilt is going to be cute. Unfortunately, I have not taken any pictures. For other news I started working full-time this week. 10 hour days could potentially kill me. I applied for three jobs on my break. When I got back my supervisor informed me that they were going to start letting people go. They don't want to let 1600 people go at the same time, so they are going to be doing every week. That stinks, but I need more than a temporary job. It was great to refresh my Spanish, and keep me going this Spring. Anybody heard of someone hiring? I start Summer semester on Monday. I have never gone to Summer school in my life. This is going to be a new feeling. Although I am excited, my first class is Spanish 4690 Central American Culture. I think I have a pretty idea of what thats about. I look forward to learning all that I can. I got financial aid, so I get to take my classes this summer, and only take 12 credit hours in the fall. It still counts as full time, just a light schedule(which isn't true for me, I have to take my Senior Seminar). After I graduate in December, I am going to be looking for a nice vacation. I think instead of a vacation, I will be looking at finding a job. Why did the recession have to happen right now? Sean Merkley(mission friend) called me last night and asked if I would be interested in going to Honduras in August. Of course. Now, I need to save up a few buck for a ticket to hondo. I'm glad I can go with someone who can drive down there. Its going to be a blast. I talked to Kaloulaine(MTC Comp.) and she is coming out to visit in June. I can't wait to see her. I wish she would move out here. That would be a blast. Well, I guess my laundry is calling me. Best be off.
