Rewind & Review #32

Rewind & Review

Not much exciting has happened these last few weeks. I got some really great books, an adorable Valentine's Day gift from my parents, and I had several tests/quizzes. But the highlight of the past two weeks was the three snow days we got on the 16th, 17th, and 18th. I got to stay up late and sleep in, read all the books I wanted, make mac and cheese with my roomie, and even sleep over at another friend's dorm. But, boy, when we went outside - especially on the 19th - it was freezing. In Illinois, when it gets that cold, we stay inside! Our provost has no sympathy for frozen students though. I guess he thought we should...let it go.
Sorry, that was really bad.

  1. It's freezing here too. *shivers* I'm doing my best to stay inside, but I had to go out and shovel the driveway yesterday.
    Also, I'm a little curious about where your college is, because we had snow days on the 16th, 17th, and 18th as well. (Not that it actually snowed a whole lot on any of those days, but the schools closed anyway.)

    1. Ahhhhh. Ok. Thanks. (And now I feel like I should've known that . . . *smacks head*)
