So wow, I suck at updating. Big suprise. My last update was right after my car accident. So long story short, my semester was badish. I didn't have a car until right before Thanksgiving, which was no fun at all. My classes have been hard and taken up a ton of my time. But everything got better the week before Thanksgiving. First of all, the weekend before that my Dad and sister had brought down a new car for me. That mad me extremely happy. Then that Wednesday I got offered the internship with Senator Levin for next semester, which is so amazing and I'm so excited about it! That means that I'm moving to DC for January-May and living with my Aunt. So I have an amazing internship that will hopefully assist me in actually get hired with my just my Bachelors (I don't want to go to grad school right away), and also I don't have to take any classes next semester. It finally makes me feel like I may in fact be starting a real life of some sorts, which is great.
So the Thanksgiving holiday was nice. Pretty calm, did dinner with my family at my parents friends house, then went over to Meghans for another one. Did some shopping, hung out with Meghan a lot. Saw Kelly and Megan some too. Drove back down here Sunday night. This week has been nice too. Amy and I decided not to renew our lease at this apartment, because were living with different people next year, so Danielle, Christina and I started looking for places on Wednesday. The first day we looked at some condos, some that we close to campus and iffy, and others that we far away and really really nice. So we decided to look at houses. So Thursday, at first we looked at these three houses and were not something I would live in, ever. Then we went to this 4th one that was PERFECT. We both loved it, and then Christina came the day after and loved it too. Its on South Dunn by Bryant Park, probably like a 15 minute walk from the Law School. It was built only 2 years ago, so its got new appliances, and new washer and dryer. The house has 3 bedrooms, a huge laundry room, then big kitchen and then living room and dining room, 1.5 baths, and had all wood floors except in the kitchen and bathroom, and its really open. Theres a huge deck off of the back, which is great cause we want to get a grill and stuff. So we put in the applications yesterday afternoon and were going to sign the lease on Monday afternoon. I'm so excited for next year!!!!
So yeah, I've got 1 more week of classes and then finals to go, then I'm done for the semester. I pretty much have to finish a huge paper for my V450 Elections Law class today/tomorrow (the final is optional and I have an A so I'm not taking it! YES), write a paper on Deaf education for ASL150, and finish an astronomy project. Then my finals week I have my ASL Receptive exam on Monday morning, my Y383 Political Thought exam Tuesday morning, then Con Law and Astronomy on Thursday afternoon/evening. Then Friday I'm working in the morning, then heading down to Lexington in the evening for Emily's wedding. The wedding isn't until Saturday evening, but Kari booked the hotel for Friday and Saturday nights so that works. I'm really excited cause its sounds like its going to be a big Foster Shea reunion, cause me, Kari, Megan, Steph, Christy, Shannon, and of course Em are all going to be there. It should be a really good time. Then on Sunday I'm driving back to Bloomington, packing the stuff I need for the semester, and driving home Monday morning for the holidays. I might to going to Chicago to see Lisa after Christmas, but I'm not sure. Then I'm heading to DC on the Friday before Martin Luther King Day.
K, well I've got a paper to work on before the I go to the basketball game tonight. Hope you all enjoyed this wonderful insight into my life! Haha.
