The End is in Sight!

Well, I officially have two classes this week and I will be finished with my first semester of college! I'm definitely excited to be finished, and I'm ready to get started on some fun stuff that I haven't been able to do since school started. :) You know, like reading a non-school book, getting my crocheting back out, and decorating for Christmas with the girls. Yep, I have quite a few things I want to get done with the free time I will have coming up this week, and it all starts Wednesday when I turn in my Final Argument Research Essay! I'll still have my last history class on Thursday, but I get to just enjoy that one and the history class tomorrow free of any assignments or exams. I won't go into all the details of the phenomenon of how I escaped finals for my history class, but I will say that working hard to do the best you can on assignments and exams will often times pay off very well with a professor who wants to show you they appreciate the hard work you've done! So, with two classes left I have an automatic "A" in the class, along with two other students, without having to do the final evaluation or test. :) I can't say how happy I am about that, and it was so worth all of the work I put into each assignment! Now I just hope my argument essay goes off well and I'll be done with English Comp. as well.

As for next semester....well, I'm going to be limiting it to two, maybe three, classes to make it easier on myself and be able to spend more time doing the things that need to be done around the house. This semester was a really good experience and opportunity for me, and even though it was a lot of hard work it was fun to have to use my brain a little more than I do every day with the girls. :) I think I've also learned to use the time that I have more wisely than I've done before; not that it won't be fun to relax a little bit after this raiding the college library collection (that I've only been able to look at longingly) and getting some fun reading material!

I think my next post should be on the girls...who have play-dough all over the kitchen floor, in the tiniest of delightful[sarcasm]. Speaking of that though, I should make sure that gets cleaned up before I have pieces of play-dough ground into the carpet....well, it's probably too late, but I can try. :)
