Some Kind of Wonderful...

Yep, that is the title to a sappy romantic song, but don't worry, I'm not talking about a guy. Not even close! I'm actually talking about Spring Break!! It's finally here, and it is some kind of wonderful!!!

(Please excuse the exclamation points. They won't go away.)

It's a short break (just from Wednesday to Sunday) but I'll take it! I was starting to feel a little burned out with all of the assignments due just before break started. In fact, it was one mad scramble those last few days with exams and papers due, but the thought of spring break motivated me to write my Hume paper on Tuesday. And now I only have three papers and six exams to go (I have five papers and eight exams down).

On Thursday, a friend came over and we went traipsing through the woods, had an epic snowball fight (in bare feet, no less), had an adventure involving quicksand (we survived) and went out on the Beaver Pond in a flimsy raft and were nearly eaten by the Loch Beaver Monster (who is actually just an orange fish). It was awesome!

I'm getting ready to leave in about ten minutes to sing in a cantata presented by area churches titled "The Power of the Cross." I've really enjoyed being involved in it and I'm really looking forward to performing it. I hope it blesses the people watching as much as it has blessed me. It was so nice to take some time off for practices over the past few months. Singing is great therapy for the college-zonked mind. Haha.

Real quick before I dash out the door (since I doubt I'll be blogging for quite some time...maybe not even until college is over), I've started planning summer classes. Actually, I think my summer is totally booked. I plan on taking nine credits (Euclidean Geometry from PHC and Spanish 1 & 2 from a SUNY college through DL), working pretty much full time, and hopefully campaigning at some point for some awesome Tennesseans. :)

Well, my time is up! Catch you all later...

Change the "hopefully" to "definitely"- just not yet:)
