Let's Catch Up, Shall We?

I don't have much time, cuz I need to write a paper that's due tomorrow, but I just wanted to catch up with you all a bit. So, expect a bunch of randomness in this post.

-I went to Martini Fest Friday night with a couple girls. Martini Fest is an event here where you get a small martini glass and they have over 50 different booths, all with different types of martinis that you can sample. Best ones- American vodka and lemonade and one that was Bubblegum vodka, cranberry juice and gingerale. Yum! Worst one- caramel martini with chocolate sauce. Ick!

- I just registered for my last semester of college classes! WooHoo! That just feels amazing. My last semester will consist of these 4 classes: a seminar on the 1890's, Nazi Germany, Industrial Organizational Psychology, and the Sociology of Work. (Should be better than this semester which was Irish History, American Revolution/Constitution, Modern China, and Global Environmental History).

- I have 3 weeks left until the end of this semester. I cannot wait to have 3 weeks off of school. I'll probably be back to blogging every day then. I also plan on going to the gym Mon-Fri during Christmas break and painting some rooms in our house.

-Seriously guys, I'm not exaggerating when I say school is just wearing me out. Being a history major means lots and lots and lots of reading and writing. It is just very hard to keep up with. When I finish this blog, I need to read a chapter and a half in a book called The Belfast Diaries for my Irish History class and write a study guide for it, write a 5 page paper on the Okefenokee Swamp, and read something for my Environmental History class (I don't know what yet).

- We are going to a 1st birthday party for our friend's little girl on Saturday. We also have a housewarming party to go to. I took Saturday off so I can attend both, which I'm way excited about!

Sorry this wasn't the most interesting post! Bear with me, ya'll!


  1. Oh, I REMEMBER that "last semester of college" feeling. It was great... but it was BLOWN AWAY by the "last exam I'll ever take" that came about 4 months later. ;-)

  2. omg, I misread your list of classes as including a seminar on the 1980s and was like, duuuude, way to have maximum academic fun in your last semester! Although I'm sure the 1890s is interesting too.

    Congrats for getting to that last semester! You must be psyched, girl.

  3. YAY!!! I'm glad you got to go have some fun and have some martinis! Woo hoo!

    I'm gonna have to pep talk you everyday so you don't become bald in your last's almost over! Woo hoo again!

    And no work Saturday! Woo hoo third!

    I'm a little tired. And have ate entirely too much while here at home. Can't you tell by my comment! Ha!

    Love ya dear!

  4. I can totally understand! I am completely SWAMPED with end-of-semester projects and papers. This semester went by so quickly and I am so looking forward to having a 3 week break where I can just relax and stop thinking so much! :)

  5. I feel your pain. I am counting down the days until the end of the semester. I'm jealous that you are almost done! I still have 3 more semesters. YUCK. Plus grad school... boo!

    Glad to know you are still hanging in there! Bring on break!!
