Happy New Year!
I know this post is a little belated, and that I've sort of dropped off the face of the earth a little bit...this winter break has been great, but pretty hectic. Running around all of Illinois and parts of Indiana and Wisconsin, seeing family/friends and still trying to relax a little bit before student teaching starts. This break is going fast.
I'm excited for 2008. It's looking really, really scary (because the entire second half of it is an unknown), but holds a lot of possibilities. This year I student teach, I graduate college, I look for (and hopefully find a job), and have no idea where I'm going to be in six or seven months.
Some of my highlights of break: Seeing my family & friends (the ones I have seen so far), Black Hawks game (they won! 2-5), haha, LAN party, Christmas, getting to meet/hang out with a bunch of Wes's peace corps friends over new years, oh yeah, and probably the biggest highlight, yesterday. My Christmas present from Wes was to go see Phantom of the Opera in Chicago. It was -amazing-. And so incredibly well done. To top it off, I had a restaurant gift card that my dad had generously given me, so we went out for a really nice dinner afterwards. Yesterday rocked.
Anyway...just letting you all know I'm still alive. :) I've got a week left of break; if I haven't seen you yet give me a call.
