it feels weird to not have school lurking in the back of my mind.  i love it!  i can’t wait til i actually feel the freedom of not being in school.  right now i just feel like im on christmas break and that in january i’ll have to go back to reading, writing, studying, crying, stressing, etc.  i guess it will hit me in january when that doesn’t actually happen!  woohoo!!

over christmas break im going to my resume all updated and fixed up and start sending it out to some places to see what happens.  hopefully my search for a “grown up” job won’t be too difficult.  we’ll see.

most of you know already but im sick again.  i never really got rid of my walking pneumonia so it relapsed last weekend.  i also have an eye infection.  im slowly starting to feel better though.  i guess the two shots in my butt, antibiotics, and eye drops are kicking in.  one good thing about the eye infection is that i got to get a sweet new pair of glasses.  i love them and i think i’ll actually wear them a lot even when my eye is better.  they are fancy. 

i bought an ipod touch with some of my graduation money.  i like it.  all the apps and games are neat.  the main reason i got it was to keep myself organized…kinda like a palm pilot or something.  so far it’s working great…i have my calendar all filled out and i downloaded a great notebook/todo list thing that works perfect.

anyway that’s all for now.

    Let me be the first to make a correction. Para 2: “over christmas break…” Au contrair! Written like a true student! There IS NO student break! You’ve broken it all together. And we’re proud!

    Given your major, do you have any interest in exploring possibilities of writing for Phi Kappa Phi Forum, the quarterly magazine of The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi? Now, the magazine doesn’t pay contributors, but it is exposure to more than 100,000 readers and a nice “clip” to have. If you might be interested, send me an email and I can tell you what happens next.

    Best,
