Bring on the cold
Haloween is done, thanksgivig break is right around the corner, but everyone is ready for christmas. The holiday spirit at this school is incredible. Everyone has a positive outlook on the holiday season, and no matter what happens, you always end up being happy. I actually just the other night, was carving pumpkins, during the thanksgiving season, whilst listening to christmas music. It was a weird combination of the holidays, but it made it that much more enjoyable.
We have finally started to get some of the weather that I personally love. Since I grew up in New Jersey, I love the cold, and would much rather be freezing than burning. The weather has started to chill out, but it just makes me happier. The best thing, was when it snowed here in Philadelphia a few weeks ago, and my friends who were from warmer climates got to see snow for the first time. Its an unusual experience, especially if you have grown up with snow.
The advising period for next semester just recently ended also. Advising is extremely helpful, in that each student is paired with a faculty member in their program. Then the student and that faculty member sit down and discuss about which classes that student should take. Its helpful to find out more information on the classes, when they will be meeting to see if it fits into your schedule. Registration for the spring semester starts next week, and its pretty relieving to know which courses I will be taking.
Thats it for now. Fertik, out!
