Spring Break in this weather?

So Spring Break is happening next week, which is something I only found out a few days ago. I was so surprised that Spring Break was happening when it's so cold outside. I mean the school can't help for the weather, but its such a huge dissapointment that it will be so cold outside the week that I don't have any classes. At that rate, if I'm going to stay in, I might as well be in class. Plus I love to write and take photographs outside, I really don't feel thrilled to walk around in cold weather. However!

Snow vs. Snow Day

So in the first week back, we had two snow days delaying the start of classes. I loved them, but by the third day I was itching to get back to class, especially since this semester I get some time in the dark rooms again! Plus I really don't like snow, so I was happy when I began to see it melt. But now I hear that after this wonderful weekend we are getting more snow! I know I might be crazy for saying this but I don't want another snow day, I actually want to be in class. This is something I never thought I would say three years ago.

After Thanksgiving

So I've just come back from my Thanksgivin break and it's so hard to get back into the swing of things. I came back to all these finals and all this work and after having a break i just don't feel like doing anything. But, I've come up with a solution. Most of my friends feel this was too, but i've found out that if you get about three or four friends to get together with you and work on some home work, you get tired of complainging after the first half hour and then actually get work done! It's really cool, and it always helps having other artisits around you.

My first Blog!


So this is my first time blogging, so I figure I would start by talking about this awseome group I am involved in at Uarts. We are called the Ladies of Service. And we've had a great week. We had two bake sales, that went really well and we also had out annual blood drive that was a huge success! This is my first semester as part of LOS and so far I love it! I get the opportunity to meet new people and give back to the community. Plus we have tons of fun events for just us as a group. This group has definity shaped my expierence at Uarts and I love being a part of it!
