and I kind of want to give up, but not really!
Today I saw so many people that I love. OH! They are the ones who get me through school!!!! I would name them, but then I get nervous.
Things I still need to do:
Make final class decisions - Hum 201 or Civ 202: Letters? retake Book of Mormon or take D&C?
Make a music video - this didn't happen on NYE
First day in 105 - We have come back from doing our personal introductions, and our TA rewinds the tape. When he presses play, I see a boy with a gingham shirt, blue eyes, baggy jeans, and crew cut hair style. "Hmm... he looks just like my bro..." I think. Then I pointed and said, "THAT'S MY BROTHER!" Nobody believed me, and it was kind of quiet...but the TA asked, "Is that really your brother?" I said, "Yes. He graduated from the program!!"
"When was he in?"
"Uhh, six years ago?"
We went on to watch the introductions, it was pretty funny. Not in the "ha ha" funny, but the funny as in "whatarethechancesthatonmyfirstdayofmyfirstfilmclasstheTAputsinaMiniDVtapethathasmybrotheractinginitfromsixyearsagowhenhewasintheprogram?" (Is there a word for that? Ironic? Is that right? I guess I will just go with funny) Also the dialogue was about getting more time for a major payment. The actor playing opposite my brother said, "Don't get greedy." He was wearing a leather jacket and had aviators. Sooo coool and gangster?
I also loved seeing my brother actually do stuff while he was in the program, because I was just a kidlet back in those years and didn't understand how much work it is.
I guess I can't leave this program without everybody knowing that I am the fifth in my family to be accepted (and eventually graduate). I mean really? That is just crazy speak. Good crazy speak nonetheless.
Well, I think I am going to catch some winks or zzzzzs or sleep.
Happy Winter 2011 semester, folks.
