The semester has ended! I have not earned the 4.0 I had intentions on, however I did end up with a 3.75 . All because of one teacher, bummer. Oh well life goes on I suppose. I now have a little over a year until this is all over and the real world begins.

As for now, I just got home from seeing the movie, "The Holiday". What a fantastic movie. I do not normally cry in movies, but this one, I was dropping the tears. Very much a chik flik, but I think guys can def. get something out of it. I want the movie when it comes out on DVD.

So I got to thinking about this movie and all. It really had some excellent points in it. The movie was set up where the emotions that I really hide were verbalized. I was astonished! On another note, it really emphasizes Christmas and how important it is to spend it with the ones you love, even if it means by yourself. Given, I will not be spending my holiday in England alone, but I will be spending it with the ones I love. It would be nice to have a date this holiday, but beggars can't be choosers I suppose. Plus, being single and all, who needs a date when I can have two or three anyway? lol : ) I'm funny. Well, I am going to get to bed. Farewell!

I did it. Today is the day that I finished my education clinicals for the semester. My evaluations went well. As far as I know, I will be continuing onto bigger and brighter things. (a.k.a- clinicals next semester :o) More importantly, I grew an attachment to my students. One in particular, Jennifer. When she found out it was my last day today, she cried. It was sweet. It took everything inside of me not to cry myself. I am going to miss all of the boys and girls at Nashold Elementary in third grade. Each and every one of them had an impact on me, whether they knew it or not. I know I am on the right track with my education. It just feels right.

I would love to blab on about this, but I am not feeling so well. I am going to take this opportunity to rest. I will publish more at another time.

It is a small world! Let me explain (not like one is needed, but I am sure it would help). My dad used to work at the Federal Reserve Bank in Chicago, his rank was a captain. Anyway, my dad's best friend Bill worked there too (still does). Bill is the one who is the connection to all of this. Somehow, Bill and this other person, Jim,(who also worked at the Federal Reserve) got on the subject about Jim working at Otto's (a bar here at school) Bill knows that I attend Northern so he mentioned my name. Obviously Jim didn't know me, but then requested that I should go in and introduce myself. At the time this happened, I wasn't 21. So to make a long story short, if possible, I went to Otto's last night and met this guy. He is sooo wonderful! Not only did I get my drinks for free, but he also extended it to my friend Laura who happened to be with me! How nice of him! I thought he would be this old creepy guy, but actually he is 29.
Wow, it truly is a small world.

On a side note, I would really like to show pictures of my friends and me. I will do so as soon as I figure out how. Unnnntil then, enjoy!

Saturdays are wonderful days, aren't they? This is the first Saturday I have to myself since the semester began. Well, actually I am babysitting today, but it's not like I am doing a group project or anything. Here is an update in Becky's World. I have been extremely busy with school and babysitting. Lucky for us, the university was closed on Friday so my friends and I played in the snow. What fun! :o) I am still single and I am okay with that. I do not have time to blink my eyes somedays, let alone dealing with the dating scene. I have had potentials. Thanks, but no thanks.
I am nearing the end of the fall semester and boy the time flew by! I cannot believe that this time next year I will be preparing to graduate. <> All I can do is take this process one day at a time.
I am looking forward to being home for the holidays. There is nothing like the love of a family. It is comforting to come home and know that the support will always be there.
I hope everybody's week/month is going well. Mine is moving right along.
