Finals week is this week and its crunch time! I have 4 finals and my documentary is due this week. Pretty much only one final will be difficult and that one is tomorrow! So I am in process of studying for it right now. Only one more week and I will be a senior... :l kinda scary. I am very excited for the semester to be over with and I can go home for awhile. I'll be pretty busy with my internship and work this summer. But leaving here just makes me want to come back even more! I'll miss Carbondale this summer!! :(

Only 1 more week of school left and then it's finals. Where did this semester go?? I feel like the fall semester went by a lot slower than this one. I really don't want to leave Carbondale in 2 weeks. I was planning on living down here this summer but decided it wasn't in my best interest due to money expenses. I already have a job at home so it would be dumb for me not to work there. Also, living with mom and dad, along with home cooked meals for free all summer is hard to turn down. I figured I won't be able to live off the rents for much longer so I might as well take it while I'm still young.

This year was a good one Ill have to admit not the best one in school. I learned a lot with my major so that was a lot of good progress. Next year will be a very crazy/busy year but I'm ready to conquer it!
I went to the Cardinal game last night in St. Louis. They played the Atlanta Braves. The Cardinals won 6-0. It was the 8th consecutive loss for the Braves. Cardinals are doing exceptionally good for the beginning of the season. They are currently 1st in the National Central division and are up by 4 games. Last night I went with 5 of my best friends. I had one of the best times I've ever had at a Cardinal game. But then again I am 21 now and its really nice to now be able to drink Bud Lites at the game! If anyone is looking for an inexpensive fun time and a short trip from Carbondale, then a St. Louis Cardinal game is perfect for you!

2010 Winter Olympics Vancouver- Figure Skating

I figured this was an appropriate clip to show, considering the Olympics are a huge part of our pop culture. This past winter Olympics was very successful, with the U.S.A. receiving the most number of medals, including the silver medal in hockey. Figure skating is one of my favorite events at the Olympics. However, the U.S. Women didn't even place in the single's event. All around, another great Winter Olympics for the U.S.!
