Rewind & Review #29

Rewind & Review

Well, as you're reading this, I'm back in Kentucky, likely having one last outing with my parents until March. Or perhaps I'm hanging out with my friends or roommate or getting ready for classes to start tomorrow. My break was great. I didn't leave the house all that much, which - for an introvert like me - was just what I needed. I'm mostly happy to be going back to school and I'm very excited to see what God has in store for my second semester. I'm nervous about my classes (there's a lot more participation and even some presentations required, and the thought of both gets my heart racing), and I'll be starting a job, which is exciting and a bit nerve-inducing all at the same time. The primary exciting news of my weekend was that I got a library card for the county library, so I can finally start checking out books!
No book haul video, but I did unbox my Book Outlet order on camera for y'all.
