Rewind & Review #54


I'm back at school! We've already had a snow day, and it's way too cold for my tastes. I don't mind the snow and cold, not really. But I do when I have to walk everywhere in it. *sigh* Um, I'm been getting into the swing of classes and work. I'm taking a photography class this semester, which I hope is something I'll be good at. I'm also taking intro to poetry writing for my major, which has not been nearly as fun as fiction writing just because it's not my strength. Finally, I'm taking a history course for my minor and two literature courses. There's gonna be plenty of projects, papers, and exams, that's for sure.
Highlights of the last few weeks: went on a donut adventure this past Friday, finished season 3 of The Good Wife, got Netflix (so now I can watch Gilmore Girls anytime), took photos for a project at Joseph-Beth, and took photos on the two snowy days we had.
