Countdown to Christmas
I'm back home for the holidays again! I made it through my senior marching season, methods block, and 17 hours of classes! And I made all A's!!! I've terribly neglected my blog this semester. I'm amazed at how much else I got done though! Talk about a successful to-do list. I took the GRE, applied to the Grad. program at UA (in English), marched with the Million Dollar Band all the way to the SEC Championship (and soon, the National Championship in Pasadena!), and completed 110 placement hours at Hillcrest and Holt High Schools. It's been the best semester, I really feel like my methods block prepared me for my internship. I can't wait to find out where I'll be spending Spring semester. They'll mail the placements between Dec. 20 and 30, so I'll find out soon!
December is so much fun for me, it's my birthday month AND Christmastime! There's nothing better than finishing up finals just in time for your birthday, and then heading home for Christmas. I had the best birthday this year, Mom took me to lunch and shopping, I met up with A.B. for dinner, and the next day I had lunch with T. That Saturday E.O. and C. went to dinner and to see The Princess and the Frog with me! I was so excited to see the newest Disney princess movie. :) It was so great! New Orleans is one of my favorite places, and I loved that the newest Disney movie was set there. Ray and Evangeline were my favorite characters, I think. :)
