Yay for a new semester!

Wow, school has begun, and let me tell you, my feet have hit the ground running (not so much by choice, but because I have to run to keep up with this semester). This semester is going to be crazy!  I thought it would be way more laid back, but judging by the first 4 days, that's totally not going to happen.
I feel like I just graduated!
I graduate in 4 months!  But to get there, I have to take 4 more classes - Graphics [fun class], Finance, Statistics [there are only 8 people in the class], and Management.  For my 'lightest' class load yet, it's going to be quite the fair amount of work.   I'm really excited for this management class.  It's going to be the most work out of any class, but I'm going to learn so much.

Already, in 2 classes, it's challenged me to rethink how I think (talk about confusing), how I organize things, why I think the way I do, how effective am I, and what I truly want to do in life.  Now I already have what I will dub a 'dream job' [meaning whats the job you want right after graduation.  Not ten years from now, but the month after you graduate]. So even though a lot of the class is helping students figure out what that is, I'm still gaining a lot of cool info.

Oh, and did I mention I'm taking guitar classes?!?!  Super stoked!  And, in case you didn't know, that means I'm in process of completing something off of my Day Zero Project! (read about it here)  Speaking of which, I completed stuff over the break!!!  Like:

I got to shoot a gun!  Ben and some other friends taught me a little bit and I did get to shoot a few guns.  I still plan on learning more with my dad and grandpa, as well as Bill (I'm really excited for those!).  But I officially shot one.

I started to learn to drive stick.  It was pretty epic, pulling off the side of the road to switch places and then stalling a good 4 times.... haha.  But I'm looking forward to continue learning it.

I got a sewing machine for Christmas (complete with patterns to make pj pants, haha), so learning to sew should happen soon. I really want to make a quilt like this:

That's about it, but I've already got a few more things on my list for this semester :)

So yes, I'm looking forward to the semester.  To the musical that I'll be in, to the fun with friends, to some time down at Marmon, to snow (yes snow; I'm sick of this rain stuff), to the amazing things that God has planned for me.

P.S. Did I mention I'm glad it finally snowed? I'm way over this rain thing!
