MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

Just thought I would give you an update. Finals are now over!!! I survived. I have received results from 2 tests already. I got a 78% in econ, which is higher than my test average but not magnificent. In history, with the curve, I got a 96%. That's lower than my test average so I have room for improvement. I feel all right about the rest of them, so we'll see. So I just found out that I got a B in econ, more than I can say I deserve, I didn't work too hard for it. It was almost a stressful time with finals, but it's over! During finals week my computer crashed while I was updating from microsoft...ironic?!? Now I am at work, I just finished watching some office episodes. Unfortunately my parents are coming down to Utah for the Christmas holiday, which means I am staying in the grand state of Utah! (there was sarcasm there).

Enough with the boring stuff, next semester marks the last semester I will have to prepare me for my study abroad. After said semester, I will be released into the wild and forced to fend for myself in Egypt. Intimidating? YES! I am SO excited though!! I feel at times that I fall into a rhythm and I get bored of it. So this will be a nice way to mix it up!! Our teacher gave us a travel agenda of what will be taking place after we finish our studies in Egypt. I'll be doing EVERYTHING!!! Everything in Jerusalem, some of the other big Israeli cities, Roman ruins, Petra in Jordan, swimming in the Red Sea/Dead Sea/Mediterranean Sea just to name a few. And the best part is I will be growing a mustache while there!!! That's the goal at least.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Post Script, this is where I will be going this summer:
