fun weekend

This weekend I went to Ohio again to visit my boyfriend. We went shopping and made Christmas cookies and it got me really excited for Christmas and Thanksgiving, especially for the time off school. I was so happy that I got my program done before I even left so that I didn't have it looming over my head all weekend. This week is a pretty awesome week because a lot of my classes are cancelled and cross country is officially over, so I don't have practice for the next 2 weeks. Of course, after that track will start up, but it is really nice to have 2 weeks of relaxation. Also, I have my last week of field experience this week as well.Today when I was filling out the "Intent to return" survey, I was noting the format, and thinking to myself, "I could probably make something like this!" So, I saw a real-life application of the skills we are learning. Grrrrrrrrrreat!

Off to school we go

I need to post really quickly before I'm off to observe at Greenville High School. Programming this week was pretty laid back. It was really great to spend those two days reviewing and going over concepts we have already learned. We have sort of buzzed through the material so it was helpful to review it.
I cannot wait for Thanksgiving break. And I am already counting days of class till Christmas. Only 20!

Already November

The time is flying by. I can't believe that cross country season is practically over. I got to run in the last race yesterday, conference. I wasn't happy with my race, but I was happy that I was able to race. I am coming off a stress fracture in my tibia and this year's time of 27:59 was almost heart-breaking compared to last year when I came in at 24:48. But I am coming off an injury so I am grateful for the chance to get out there and run with my team.
My parents came into town for the meet on Saturday, and we had a great time. They stayed at the B&B and I was able to go over there for breakfast this morning, which was delicious. We then went to the Missouri Botannical Gardens. It was such a gorgeous day outside! 70* in November? Who woulda thunk? Then they dropped me off at the symphony that I had to attend for my fine arts class. It was a good experience, but made for a long day.
I have been working on the program tonight and I just keep getting more and more confused. My notes tend to confuse me as I know what I'm writing when I write it, but then I can't remember what goes where and all when it goes to actually writing the program. Honestly, I am ready for this class to be done with. It is a nice break from math, but I am ready to be back doing stuff I understand and makes sense to me and is applicable. Anyways, I will probably be in for help at some point tomorrow. Unless the program elves come write it for me tonight.
Speaking of elves, Christmas is coming!! Yay! I'm a Christmas fanatic!!
