Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Fall '08 No Comments »

It’s hard to believe that 2008 is almost over already.  Time moves inexorably forward - through good times and bad.  2008 will be remembered in history books.  Gas prices rose and fell, the stock market crashed and our first African-American President was elected.  What a rollercoaster!

Now the holidays are coming and it seems that the current economic crisis has forceably reminded us of one thing:  Christmas is not about presents.  It’s about enjoying the present… appreciating what you have now.  Take a few minutes this holiday season to let others know how much you care about and appreciate them.  Your love is the best gift you can give. 

It’s been a lot of fun blogging this semester.  I’m going to miss it. 

Have a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Fantastic Festivus, etc.  :)

Another semester come and gone…

Wow, this semester flew by…they seem to be going by faster each year. I guess the busier you are the faster time goes and I don’t think I’ll be getting any less busy anytime soon. This semester was good… of course it had its ups and downs as always.

I was just thinking that it’s funny how each semester we develop certain routines: what time we leave for class; what entrance we use into the parking lot; where we park; who we see and hang out with, etc. It’s nice getting into a routine but new things and change is good too. I am looking forward to a nice little break and having a little more free time. I am also looking forward to next semester. I’m really looking forward to my schedule and the classes I’m taking. I am also excited to take some professors again and getting to know a couple of new ones.  I hope everyone enjoys their time off and is able to get rested up for the new semester. Happy Holidays!
